If you are considering redesigning your home to make more of the space that you have got, then high up on your list of priorities will probably be to create a master bedroom. The master bedroom is your space to relax, chill out and enjoy some peace and quiet after a long hard day. For this reason, the master bedroom should be the epitome of style and comfort – and this includes having an ensuite bathroom attached. In this article we are going to tell you why an ensuite bathroom is so important, and we will also give you some tips and tricks on how to fit the perfect one for your house.
Why Do I Need an Ensuite Bathroom?
If you have a family bathroom, then you may feel that an ensuite bathroom is a step too far. However, there are many times when an ensuite bathroom can come in handy. For example, if you have a big family and there is a long queue for the bathroom in the mornings then this will help to ease the flow. Similarly, if you have guests to stay then they can be given dedicated use of the family bathroom while you use your ensuite. Having an ensuite bathroom opens up many different opportunities and options for different uses of the house – and it is bound to appeal to prospective buyers when the time comes for you to sell the house on. This will inevitably have a positive effect on the sale price.
How Do I Go About It?
You will need to employ the services of an architect if you wish to have an ensuite bathroom attached to your bedroom. Of course, you will need to make sure that you have the space available in order to create it – and this may mean making another room slightly smaller. The architect will be able to advise you on the best possible way to get the ensuite in without losing too much space elsewhere. The architect will also give you great suggestions for the layout of the bathroom so that you make the best from the space available.
Things to Think About
You will need to choose a suitable bathroom suite – and this can take quite a lot of research to get right so start looking straight away. Consider how you wish the bathroom to be designed, and think about lighting. Don’t be tempted to carpet the ensuite bathroom as this will very soon get damp and smelly. Instead, consider a hardwood floor which will be much more durable. If you have the space, then a shower will be very useful indeed – so put one in if you can. There should be a door to separate the bathroom from the bedroom, and you will need to buy some fixtures and fittings such as a toilet brush, a soap dispenser and toothbrush holder.
You will love having an ensuite bathroom attached to your bedroom – it will give you a far greater experience every morning while you get ready for work.
