Suggestions for bathroom layout and design please?


I’m designing the layout of our eventual house. After its done, I’ll take it to an architect and have them draw it up for real so it can be built.

However, my husband has decided to make things difficult on me. Not in a bad way, just in a "our tastes don’t match" way so I’m trying to find something that will suit both of us.

Yes, this is very strange. I’m a girl and I prefer sleek and modern. He’s a guy, and he prefers country style. You’d think it would be the other way around.

Our bedroom looks something like this…

He bought the set before we got together. Its a nice set, don’t get me wrong. But I don’t think I’d have really chosen it for myself.

I’d have chosen something more like this…

Honestly, in most of the house, its fairly easy to accommodate this both for our tastes. The hard part seems to be the master bath.

I want a glass vessel sink or a porcelain undermount with a granite countertop with dark colors for things like the cabinet and light walls. Somehow, though, I don’t think this idea would fit with his style and I really want him to like it too.

I’d like to create a spa effect, but I honestly am having a heck of a time finding things for it that I know both of us would like.

I know this is a broad question, but do you guys have any ideas?

Keep in mind, he’s 6 feet tall. I’m 5 feet tall. So we need to find something that will help us meet in the middle. I simply loath our current bathroom. The sink is too high for me and was put in the cabinet 6 inches from the edge (wth were they thinking when they did that) when the standard is 4 inches. But for HIM, he says the cabinet is too short for him and he wishes it were taller.

Not sure what to do here. I know he won’t like a freestanding sink, but I don’t want a traditional set up with the sink mounted on top of the vanity like I’ve seen in every other house ever.

What do you think?
