Removing Double Sinks - Bath tub
We are at the planning stage of bathrooms remodeling.
We have 4 bedrooms and three full bathrooms in the house:
1. Hallway bathroom,
It is shared by public rooms (living, dinning family rooms, and kitchen) and two adjacent bedrooms (currently both bedrooms are being used as offices).
The bathroom vanity area is 92 x 68 inches, it has 92 inches long vanity with double sinks. In a compartment, 64 x 68 inches, separated by wall and a pocket door, there is a toilet, and showing/bath tub.
We want to remove the wall and pocket door to make the bathroom more spacious.
2. Guest bathroom
It is accessed only through guest bedroom. The vanity area is 104 x 60 inches, it has a 104 inches long vanity with double sinks. In a compartment, 60 x 63 inches, separated by wall and a pocket door, there is a toilet, and shower/bath tub.
We are debating if we should remove the wall and pocket door.
3. Master bathroom
It is inside of master bedroom. The Vanity (108 inches long) has double sinks.
There is a huge, deep bathtub that we hate it with passion. We have never even used it once since moving into this house. The tub area is 84 X 40 inches.
By the tub area, there is a very small separate shower, we do not like it too. The shower area is only 45 X 40 inches.
Next to the shower/tub/vanity area is a separate compartment, 73 X 36 inches, with a toilet. There is one door opens to the back yard, and another door opens to the shower/tub/vanity area.
Both doors can be locked from inside. We want to keep both doors, since the set up is very convenient for anyone who works in the yard and wants to use toilet.
We are shower persons. DH and I use a different bathroom so one sink in a bathroom has never been a problem for us.
If it is up to us, we want to remove all the tubs and double sinks, only have one sink and one shower in each bathroom. We like bathroom with clean, streamline and uncluttered look.
We know our decision could be bad for re-sell since we heard over and over again that we should keep at least one tub in the house. If so, we are not sure which bathroom should we keep a tub. We wonder by removing bath tub, would we reduce the value (perceived or real value) of the house?
Could you please chime in with your comments? Especially if you have removed tub and double sinks from your old bathrooms, do you ever regret that?
Thank you in advance for your response.
