One bathroom is sufficient for an average family of four as long as every member keeps it neat and hygienic. Nevertheless, the concept of attaching an en suite bathroom to the bedroom is gradually becoming the standard in present-day homes. Homeowners can’t ignore the privacy and the fast escape that an en suite provides.
If you too like the concept of an en suite bathroom and want to build one for your home’s master bedroom then consider the following fabulous design tips:
1. Consider the available total space
En suites are built in the big master bedroom by dividing the space or when there is additional space available adjoining the bedroom that can be merged with the bedroom such as a liberal veranda. Larger en suite can accommodate lavish features like dual (his and her) basin, walk-in showers, a sitting area and walk-in closets. Depending on the size of the en suite, you can either increase or decrease the facilities and luxuries.
Interesting Tip: When you add an en suite to your bedroom, it may most likely increase your home’s overall value.
2. Small En Suite Bathroom Is Possible Too
You need an expert bathroom renovation contractor who can think divergently to come up with novel ideas. The expert designer must be able to fit a toilet, tub, shower and a powder area nicely together. To create an illusion of a larger and broader space, use mirrors prudently.
3. Set up fixtures that can save space
When you have a limited space then it is wise to remain with just the essentials. Select the fixtures that make your space feel light, well ventilated and roomy. Install a wall-mounted toilet and vanity to save the floor space. Instead of the basin, have the tapware installed on the walls to reduce disorder. In addition, make use of a frameless glass shower screen to maintain a clear view all through the bathroom.
4. Install both shower & tub
Certainly, you can include both shower and tub without compromising one for the other. You can fit a small tub in your en suite if you have a wall with minimum 4 to 5 feet long. Next, over the bathtub, fit the shower so both functions can take place in the same space. To keep water from spilling out, install a glass screen, but ensure that this screen doesn’t block your way to get in and out of the tub.

5. Install the shower if you have a constricted space
If you have a relatively constricted space then just install the shower. Compared to a bathtub, a shower requires very less space and it can be accommodated into most restricted spaces.
Interesting Tip: Install same tiles all over the floor area including the shower area, which will create a feeling of spaciousness and sumptuousness.
6. Organise and install all fixtures & fittings on one wall
Ensure that wall is connected to another wet area such as laundry, which will allow your local plumber to connect with your existing plumbing system. This will save you money!
7. Create Intelligent Storage
Planning for an intelligent storage solution is essential. You can fit overhead cupboards or cabinets that can be hidden behind mirrored handle-less doors.
