Multiple bathrooms in family homes have ceased to be a luxury. On trend right now is the addition of a powder room, while ensuites are becoming spa-like spaces.
General consensus is that every home deserves a powder room: it’s an affordable amenity that protects your privacy and the hygiene of your more intimate wet areas. In busy households, it also avoids the embarrassment of queuing for a berth in a bathroom.
Adds Value To Your Home
If you don’t already have a powder room, consider adding one. A basin and toilet are all that’s needed, although a vanity and a mirrored cabinet make it much more functional.
An added advantage is that bathroom additions and renovations always punch well above their weight when it comes to adding value to a home.
Every bathroom has the capacity to set a mood. A tired old bathroom can be depressing, and a tiny, cramped ensuite off the master bedroom can be an irritation.
Stylish Ensuite Sanctuary
West Australians have discovered the value of transforming a small ensuite into a stylish sanctuary.
They are prepared to ‘steal’ space from the main bedroom, or areas near it, to make room for a tub, a larger shower area, a more generous sized vanity which can take twin basins, and a toilet.
An ensuite, also known as the master bathroom, is heavily used daily, so spending money on higher-end furniture and materials is justified. Aesthetics are important in order to achieve an appealing room that the owner will enjoy – for many years.
Write A Wish List
If you are planning to renovate your ensuite, write a wish list. Do you want a stand-alone tub; toilet pan; twin-basin vanity; a separate shower; and adequate storage? If it a ‘yes’ to all of these, the space you will need is about nine square metres. The advantage is that two people will be able to use the room at the same time.
