I'm not sure I want to live in a world where no houses have baths.
I hate pedestal sinks. I like the storage provided with under counter casework with shelves and drawers.

I have a pedestal sink in my powder room - it's not tiny but it's small enough that the more open feeling is a better choice. And of course in a powder room, I have a limited amount to store in there. I wouldn't put one in a full bathroom though

I dont care for a tub in the master bathroom I have never used it. We are having our house rebuilt we opted for a large walk in shower, a large linen closet and 2 separate vanities. The shower can be used by a disabled person ..

It has 2 separate shower heads, one side of the shower has a bench built in with a shower wand , so you can sit and take a shower the other side has a rain shower head. The shower wand and rain shower head operate independently. So 2 people can take a shower at a time and utilize different temps. I prefer my shower colder than my husband.

We do have 3 other bathrooms in the house 2 have tubs, they never get used as tubs, instead people shower.

My husband was disabled years ago so this shower will be a blessing for him.

The lack of storage is no fun, but worse is the lack of any counter space to set anything while using the sink. At most there's space for a tube of toothpaste or a bar of soap balanced on the side. It's not for lack of space either, so my only guess is the builder was trying to save money or something. The master bathroom is really not my favorite.

Have only showered for.....10s of years. Can't remember last time I took a bath. Maybe when I was a baby

I'd rather have a wheelchair friendly shower for aging in place, injuries, surgeries etc.

I like a Master with both, even though I rarely use a tub. The reason I barely use the one of my current house is because it is so tiny. I really feel like they make tubs for kids these days, and I want something nice and deep I can soak in, which I will be installing in my new house. I feel your pain OP!
