For some odd reason, in smaller one bedrooms it is the norm and then when you go up to their larger one bedrooms you usually get two doors. I think it's just architectural style for the era most apartments were built in Texas. In older areas, it's usually the bathroom access to the living room or a small hallway. I think people wanted to be able to go from the shower to the bedroom without going into a living room.

Sorta common, but the two, one bedroom apartments I had in Dallas, had a bathroom accessible from the living areas. I didn't want people walking through my bedroom when I had guests over.

Neither have I. Mine have usually been off the hallway.

Most apartments that have one bedrooms with the bathroom in the bedroom will 9 out of 10 times have another floorplan with the bathroom in the common area.

You realize, a hundred or so years ago, those bathrooms would have been entirely outside the building - with no running water. I had a cousin (actually my grandmother's cousin) with such a bathroom - been there/done that. They didn't have running water before 1960. The house was out in the middle of not much anywhere.

But yes, from my experience, bathrooms accessed through a bedroom are not at all uncommon.
