I love glass block and think it is timeless. We have done numerous showers using it. Here is one that has "windows". As to using a regular window in the shower, if you go vinyl and tile around it, you should not have any problem with it at all as long as the water is not directly hitting it all the time.

By the way this bath with the glass block is a high end home.

Sorry the bathroom is comprised of three blocks:
a) loo
b) the shower (that you get to by walking past the glass block window and then up into the shower
c) the bath and sink
Take a look around

Copper sinks are more fussy and do require more caution and maintenance if you want it to stay looking new. So you have to decide if you are that person who will maintain it. If not then I would pass on it unless you are good with it looking "used" . Porcelain sinks are much easier to maintain.

Suggest you google copper sink Owner's Manuals. Once you have read the DO NOTS, then you can be the judge as to whether you want copper vs. porcelain realizing you are not the only person using or cleaning the sink. Here is an excerpt from Elkay for their antique copper sinks
• General cleaning: use non-abrasive, non-detergent soap and a soft cloth, rinse and towel dry.
• Never use abrasives, metal (copper) cleaners, scouring pads, lime or rust removal, alkaline-based, ammonia-based
or acidic-based chemicals or cleaning products.
• Acidic foods such as juices and ketchup can remove the patina if left on the sink.
• Hard water spots and mineral deposits can be difficult to remove and may result in damage to the patina.
• Light scratches are normal for copper sinks; over time they will blend into the uniform finish pattern.
• Copper has a living finish and its surface tarnishes naturally. You can expect tarnish, scratches, and dents to appear in your sink over time.

Personally, I would use copper in a secondary sink situation.

I suggest you hire a pro kitchen designer. The cost is not that great and the benefits will be well worth the dollars you will spend on a kitchen remodel. Try looking at NKBA.org for certified kitchen designers in your area. Believe me its money well spent !

Yes, the red area is an island. I would eliminate all upper cabinets on the sink wall and replace with window end to end. The refrigerator would move to opposite the sink; it could be counter depth, or built into a wall of cabinets. The space where the fridge used to be could be a second pantry. I'd probably put the microwave in a drawer.

This might work or, at least, hopefully, give you some ideas.

Stick with the same style door for design consistency.

Depending on what your budget is you could use faux stone for a complete transformation. Here is a 60's fireplace that we overlaid. Really makes an impact on the room and costs around $1800 to do with labor.
