Keeping the Peace? His n’ Her Bathrooms

My newly married friend told me that during the early stages of dating her now-husband, all she wanted was to be able to keep a toothbrush over at his place. “Once you get into the bathroom,” she said, “That’s when you really know you’re in a ‘relationship.'” Fast forward three years and a wedding, and she’s singing a different tune: “I can’t WAIT to move into my own bathroom!”

Right now, she and her husband are in the beginning stages of a massive remodel to his–sorry, their–loft. One of the things she wanted? Her own bathroom–and he couldn’t agree more! (Currently, her extensive stock of makeup samples is taking a toll on his Speedstick collection. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg…) In their case, size doesn’t matter–they both just a little place to call their own. Luckily, the space is big enough to accommodate both their wishes. But for those of you who are lucky in love and unlucky in square footage, how do you make a bathroom that’s comfortable for you and yours?
