master bedroom, closet, bath layout

Hi--We are still in the planning stage of our Wisconsin foursquare. We had to rearrange our master bedroom "suite" due to a bathtub that didn't fit the plan. Do you have any suggestions about the master bedroom, closet, and bath layout?

As you can see, space is tight. We would like a deep soaking tub that will allow us to sit upright and read, like the Neptune Nagano http://www.bainsneptune.com/english/onsen/nagano.html. Actually, we'd really like the bigger Osaka but couldn't fit it despite hours rearranging fixtures on our basic home planning software. The tub in the attached picture would be a 40 inch octagonal tub with tile surround and wood bench for sitting and stepping. To the right of the pedestal sink is built-in cabinetry with sliding doors (lower) and open shelving (upper). The toilet is behind a half wall and column.

We've replaced a walk-in closet with a dressing area and vanity. We'd like some built-in drawers and shelves in the lower left closet area.

In the bedroom, between the doors, is a built-in bookcase. Two tall-boy dressers are squeezed in the upper left corner.

Our plan is a two story foursquare home in an arts and crafts style. We were leaning toward more of an art deco look for the master bath but the unusual tub style throws us off. What is your reaction to this? Do you have any suggestions, practical or aesthetic?

Many thanks,

Liz
