The toilet, I promise you, will be your biggest challenge throughout the endeavor.<br/><br/>However, as a <a href="http://www.zillow.com/directory/real-estate-agents/">Real Estate Agent</a>, it seems as some variation of Option 2 will be most beneficial. As the two previous responses mention, you simply cant eliminate a tub if you plan to resale. You could lose a lot of potential buyers, with no tub. The double sink could be a huge selling point, if it isnt too cramped.<br/><br/>I know the challenges you are facing. Best of luck!

Don't eliminate the tub. <br/><br/>A vanity with some storage would be great. Pedestal sinks are okay for a powder room but really don't provide the function needed in the main bath.<br/><br/>Of the 3 options you mention, option 2 (or some variation of it) might be the most functional and work well for resale purposes.<br/><br/>Thanks, and good luck with the remodel!

San Francisco is a very specific market. I do not know what area of town you are in, but in many houses that favor professionals a high end shower and double sinks would appeal in a big way. In more family areas or professional+1 areas, buyers may not want to give up the tub.<br/><br/>The second option seems to give you the most flexibility down the line. It gives you the benefit of the alcove toilet, potential double sink and still keeps the tub. Shower stalls next to tubs are very 1950-1960 and I don't see them coming back in SF anytime soon.<br/><br/>Many local design centers have computer layout software that might help you picture the options on paper. They can really help you visualize the space in different layouts too.
