As glamorous bathrooms are becoming more and more in demand, their inclusion in homes is sure to add value to the property. Not so long ago the idea of an en-suite bathroom to the master bedrooms was extraordinary and decadent. Nowadays, that is a requirement for many people. On the other hand when looking at prospective properties to buy, the view of a dirty bathroom with stains under the taps and mildew on the grout lines is absolutely deadly.
One great trick one can learn from a boutique hotel is a giant headrest. If the bedroom is large enough to keep the bed away from the wall, then it is possible to build a freestanding wall that can serve as a headboard (it often contains bespoke bedside units with reading lights and a niche for a book or a glass of water). In the back room fit a small en-suite bathroom, perhaps with a walk-in shower coming from one side and WC and basin from the other.
Many older homes have very large master bedrooms, often with large high ceilings, but most do not have en-suite bathroom as this was not a common feature of the day. By building a wall that can serve as a headboard, a cool bathroom can be elegantly accommodated in the room. Sliding frosted glass doors add privacy if needed. The first and most basic thing to do once you find your space is the arrangement of the elements in it, the bathroom doesn’t have to be large (although more space can certainly add a luxurious feel), but even if space is limited, it is very important to keep the lines simple and to maximize a sense of oneness.

A common mistake is trying to cram too much into a small bathroom
If you can’t choose between a bath and a shower, don’t try to squash in both, but find an elegant way (there are many) to use the tub as a shower tray. Resist the temptation to insert the bidet between the basin and the toilet unless there is plenty of room. Twin sinks are great, unless they have to be small and close together – it’s much better to include one large basin with a bespoke floating cabinet and everything will feel bigger.
Builders often say that you can’t put a bathroom here and there because of the plumbing. There’s always a way to solve plumbing problems: find out where the shower will work best and stick to your guns. Beautiful bathrooms sparkle, so the lighting needs to be just right. The simple concealed low-voltage halogen lighter has not yet been matched to the quality of its light in the bathroom. Choose a closed type suitable for bathroom use.
