When designing your ultimate ensuite there is a lot to think about; you want to ensure that it seamlessly aligns with the home that you envisioned. Making sure the floor plan you have chosen will suit your lifestyle now and into the future is important, so make sure you do your research.
People tend to focus on their kitchen and living areas when planning their new homes. These are, after all, the places where you will spend the most time; and the spaces that visitors to your home will see more often. However, it is important to make sure you love every room in your new home. The ensuite to your main bedroom is one room that definitely deserves a bit of extra attention! When it comes to creating a luxurious feel, the ultimate ensuite can really give your dream home that extra wow factor.
Make sure you allow plenty of space for storage; this is particularly important if you will be sharing your ensuite with a partner. Having all the fancy details is useless if there is not enough space for you and your partner to move around! An ensuite needs to be functional as well as look aesthetically pleasing.
There is more to designing the perfect shower than you would first think, and getting it wrong can be a real inconvenience in the future – and costly to change.
- Would you like a single shower or a larger double-size?
- Do you want a nib wall or tiled recess to keep your shampoo and conditioner bottles on?
- Do you prefer a wall-mounted handheld or rail shower, or an overhead rain shower?
- Would you rather an open walk-in design or a shower screen door?
Bath Or No Bath?
If your home’s floor plan has space to accommodate it, consider whether you would like a bath in your ensuite. A bath can be attractive for prospective buyers if you plan to sell in the future and is obviously a good choice if you will make use of it.
- Would you like a freestanding tub or a bath with a tiled hob?
- Where would you like the taps for your bath located? They can be mounted on the hob, the wall, or you can even add a floor-mounted bath filler.
Think about what you want your vanity to look like, and also what will work best for you. Would you like cupboards or drawers? Do you like the idea of open shelving for storing extra towels? You can also opt for one or two basins, but two is recommended if you will be sharing the ensuite, and this will also add value to your home. Quality Essastone benchtops are a must for any ensuite, adding a touch of luxury, as well as being hard-wearing.
