How big should our addition be?

17 years ago

We are in the planning stages of adding to our master bedroom/bathroom area. Currently our bedroom is approx. 19.5' x 14', so we don't want to add to it. However, our bathroom is only 8.7' x 4.9' with a single sink vanity, toilet, and 1-person shower. We would like to enlarge this room to include a double-sink vanity, a 2-person shower (if possible) and a jacuzzi-style tub. We would also like to add another closet (our current one is 5.4' x 6.2') and a sitting room large enough to hold a loveseat, tv, and bookshelf/additional storage.

I'm trying to find out average size of bathrooms that include the things that I described and what would be the size of a comfortable sitting area? The house is ranch style (l-shaped) with the new addition creating a u-shape. Also, if we were to add another walk-in closet would it seem strange to have one smaller than the existing one?
