Yes, always a topic of discussion!!! The desk/dresser/dressing table (whatever you want to call it) is usually where the hair dryer is! There's always a mirror over the desk.
Alot of comments about why can't it be in the bathroom, but when you consider the size of alot of the bathrooms :-) I'd say that is why! In some ways it makes sense, because there is a mirror and it frees of the bathroom for someone else!
I guess it just depends on your individual habits!!!
