What Houzz contributors are saying:
Even if you do have a good amount of space, two sinks will eat into bench space that could be used for tasks, displays etc. Two sinks will also double the amount of under-cabinet space taken up by the double drain pipes.

It’s not all about the kids, though. According to Canny Design interior designer Janine Carter, using natural stone and porcelain in the ensuite bathroom served to create a serene atmosphere. Needless to say, the clients are thrilled and say the ensuite reminds them of being at an exotic day spa. Morning light spills in through the existing bay window – the perfect spot for the freestanding bath. The bathroom also has its own fireplace and walk-in shower. To show off the beautiful high ceilings, Carter added a drop-pendant crystal chandelier.Bath: Apaiser; Tapware: Roger Seller
