@HU96441120923,

I love it when I read how you didn't get badgered into something you didn't want. I have a huge glass brick window in our bathroom and originally hubby said he still wanted a curtain incase someone walked past the window and of course I said " are you kidding me" there is only the two of us and who exactly is going to walk past our bathroom window when we live on a farm 100's of meters away from our neihbours!! Needless to say he's ok woith it now and there is no curtain!!

I instisted on swivel taps everywhere, same reason as you mentioned.

Didn't put the recess in, was talked out of it but I do have shelving for everything but having somewhere to put your leg for shaving etc... is a great idea

Have the strip drain, so simple!!

Didn't do the fibreglass shower but interesting concept.

Got the extractor fan although not on a timer, it's situated in the laundry roof next door so it's super quiet so we can watch the TV LOL

And of course the heated towel rail is a must and I have a Neo Tastic heat lamp in the ceiling for warmth and comfort in the bathroom too!!

One more thing I have though is a drain in the bathroom floor just in case the water was left running in the bath, I have a floor drain in the laundry and kitchen as well.

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.)
