Master Bath Layout

Sorry everyone. I couldn't find my original post. I went through so many designs and I have one final one for opinions/suggestions. This one has a 12'6"X6'6" closet(minus linen closet on lower left corner), 6'8"X3'6" toilet room, 5'6"X3'6" shower, 5' pedestal tub, 6' double bowl vanity and linen cabinet. There is 41" of room between vanity and shower/toilet room.

I forget what your previous last design was too. But, if I remember correctly (having just said I forgot...LOL), you had more counter space in your last version. For me, that seems that very little actual counter space for such a large BR. You will basically have two X 3foot vanities. In our Master BR which is tiny, I just replaced the old 36" vanity with a 40" all drawers. I know it doesn't seem like much, but by going to a kitchen height, kitchen depth counter and adding those 4", I will be doubling my useable counter space. Is your tub going to be free-standing? Is there any reason you are not extending your counter/vanity to go right up to edge of tub?

Is that long wall of your shower going to be all glass?

It is actually the same size vanity as the last layout. They just look different in this one. We had a 6' vanity in our last house and it seemed to have plenty of counter space for us. The tub will be freestanding and we may could make the vanity a little longer. We would have a pony/knee wall on the shower.

How wide is your linen cabinet? Ours is 18" wide and has more than enough space inside for towels, washcloths, toiletries, etc. I would maybe reduce the linen cabinet size a little and add more counter space.

The only other issue I see is the inswing door on the toilet room--for safety reasons it needs to be an outswing.

From what I can see of the other bathroom that backs up to the master closet, it looks a little tight. Can you pull a few more inches from the hallway? In a small bathroom its amazing the difference a few inches makes.
