His and her bathrooms or big master bath?
There are currently two VERY old bathrooms in the farmhouse we're planning to remodel. There is a load bearing wall between them, so I could have a large bathroom that is accessible from the hall or the master bedroom (or both, but that would not be my first choice) and a new half bath off the kitchen in the laundry/pantry area.
While many people seem to like a large master bath, I'm leaning towards a small/average size master bath (sink, toilet, shower) with nice finishes, about 6' x 10' in size. The hall bath is about 8' x 10' and I'd love to give it an old fashioned look, with a sink in a dresser/vanity, a toilet and a claw foot tub. I'd also like beadboard on the walls and maybe a little chandelier over the tub area and sconces on either side of the sink. A little fancy, but not over the top :)
What do you think?
I should also explain that this is a small farmhouse (1 1/2 story) with one bedroom on the first floor and space for a couple of bedrooms upstairs with a bath, but right now it's one bedroom and a big attic space. There's a nice sized living room, with the bedroom behind it and a dining room/country kitchen on the other side of the house. It has a central entry with stairs and access to the bathrooms and bedroom. There is a laundry/pantry area with a half bath off the kitchen. Behind the kitchen (facing the view out the back) is an enclosed porch, with windows that open up to screens when it's nice weather.
