Two faucets to one sink?
Hi everyone at Baths! I am getting ready to do a full bathroom gut in a year or so, and this time, I want to shop for supplies at a discount ahead of time and be ready with everything paid for before we start.
We have a basic 1675 sq ft ranch with a bath and a half. The full bath has a double vanity now, but I want to widen the door in case of wheelchair use in the future, so I want to downsize the vanity. One thing seems obvious to me. If two people are getting ready in the morning in the bathroom, they each need their own faucet to keep from interfering with each other. DH turns his on and off while shaving, and hates waiting when I need to use it to get warm water to rinse my mouth after brushing, for instance. (We had one bathroom with one sink in the past.) Why can't I just get one big oblong rectangle for a sink, and have a faucet on each end? It has the advantage of only having one sink to wash, too.
This seems like such an obvious space saver that I cannot imagine why others have not done it. That leads me to consider why it may not be a good idea. Is there any plumbing rule that keeps one from having a single drain servicing two bathroom faucets? Are there any other reasons that any of you can think of that would make this a bad idea?
