Splitting up can be good for your relationship

Whether we realize it or not, our bathrooms are very personal—which means if there are two of you using that bathroom, there’s a potential for misunderstanding and conflict.

 

Take the vanity and sinks.  Years ago designers recognized the preference for his and her sinks in the master bath.  That alleviated some of the schedule conflicts over who used the sink and when, but also led to more countertop clutter.  His mouthwash…her make-up…sometimes it’s so crowded you can hardly tell what the countertops look like!


Splitting a single vanity with two sinks into two separate vanities, each with their own sink, is desirable.

 

Last time we discussed how having two separate vanities provides highly prized personal space in the owner’s bathroom, particularly eliminating conflict over countertop clutter.  But what’s the most desirable layout for the two vanities?  We show four options below. 


50020 50001
   
42158 50031


Plan 50020illustrates the two vanities in-line, separated by a built-in dresser or linen cabinet.

                   

Plan 50001  has the sinks positioned opposite each other.  Some people really like the fact that when the two mirrors face each other, you can easily see how the back of your hair looks in the opposite mirror!

 

Plan 42158 staggers the two opposite-facing sinks, eliminating the likelihood of brushing up “cheek-to-cheek”.

 

And plan 50031 has the two sinks back-to-back, providing a true sense of “me” space. 


Which is best?  Only you can decide that!
