His and Hers master bath areas?

Posted by redheadeddaughter (My Page) on

Hello there! I'm pretty sure this has been discussed already but I was wondering if anyone did this (his/hers sep. master baths) and what they think of it now? We are designing our new build and are considering having 2 small baths instead of one large one.

Is this ridiculously extravagant or a brilliant idea? :) Trying to weigh the benefits of my husband not having to see all my girly stuff (he's a neat freak) vs. resale value vs. extra plumbing cost, etc.. I kind of like brushing our teeth together though. ;) The square footage would be about the same, and the individual baths would be cozy, a shower in one and tub in the other. Any thoughts experienced GW's?

A second small 1/2 bath with a sink and commode can be convenient and nice to have since I want privacy when I use it. But I prefer to share everything else - a large single sink with ample nearby storage, a nice 6' tub that can fit two in a pinch, and a decent sized shower. But obviously this is a matter of personal preference of yours and whoever you share it with.

Funny about separate baths for keeping your mess from your husband...not how it usually goes, all my married friends complain about shaving stubbles, toilet cleaning woes, etc. and would love to have a separate bath so he'd be forced to keep his own clean with no detriment to her. Even though it would be unusual, I think lots of people would find 2 smaller baths appealing.
