When the toilet is in a room without a sink, one is required to open the door before washing one's hands. Germs!

Emerson I agree with that. Plus for females, dealing with tampons etc with no sink readily available can be a problem. We currently have the bathroom split with sink in one room, toilet and tub in the other and no one likes it that way. We'd rather have it all in one room, and will be renovating eventually to do that. But would prefer toilet and sink together, tub separate, if something has to be split out. (I also think that would make an awesome jack-n-jill set up for kids' rooms, with a toilet and sink on either side of a shared tub/shower.)
