Q:

Our master bathroom is adjacent to our master bedroom closet.  Our master bathroom is a very decent size and has a separate tub and shower.  Our master bedroom closet is a walk-in, okay in size, but leaning to the smallish size.  My question is, should we increase the size of the master bedroom closet by approximately 5 feet, or keep our 5-foot tub?  We could add a shower over the tub in the shower area if we wanted.  Do we keep the shower and the tub?  Or extend the closet to make it bigger?

We do have extra storage in the attic and in the garage.  We also have a custom-built, waterproof shed for storage.  Right now it is a rental.  We do intend to move back there in retirement as it is a rare one-story, but will probably sell it after living there for two years and move out of California.   Thank you so very much for your candid advice.
