En Suite Essentials You Can't Afford To Ignore

You know when you have made it in life. It is the day you can look your peers in the eye and declare that you have an en suite. Nothing comes close to that moment except, perhaps, the day your conservatory is complete.

The ensuite is a strange room. It is a bathroom, but you often can’t fit a full-size suite in there. It can be an attractive space nonetheless if you have a keen eye for interior design.

If you have a massive walk-in wardrobe that you would like to convert into a personal bathroom, we have some essential tips for you. They will help you to create a magnificent space of which you can be proud.

It Must Be Bright

When you consider ideas for a small bathroom, you should put lighting at the top of the list. Your space may not have a window to let in natural light, so you must compensate with high-quality light fittings and bulbs instead. The choice of lamp is a no-brainer these days because LED lighting has stripped the competition of any credence in a modern home. You can now buy replacement bulbs to retrofit almost every fitting in your home. LEDs last many times longer than other types of bulb and use a tiny amount of electricity. You can replace a 50w halogen GU10 bulb with a LED alternative that only consumes 4w but maintains the same light output. That has to be a bargain. Install downlights in the ceiling; some central light fittings clutter the room.

Fixtures

Most en suites can’t accommodate a full-size bath, so opt for a shower cubicle instead. Two people could use the oversized sink in the image, but would you want to share the water? There are thousands of double sink vanities on sale online, and you will find many to suit a small bathroom.

A wall-mounted WC will be less obtrusive that a free-standing model where there is little space.

Your room should feature the best taps and hardware that you can afford. Cheap products will spoil the overall effect. Designer taps, on the other hand, will enhance the room and make it look luxurious and opulent. They must sparkle from the LED lighting, just as you would expect in a posh hotel.

Smoke And Mirrors

I guess I should call this section Steam And Mirrors. You must make the room look and feel more spacious than it is. It is quite easy to do. The designer of the room in the image made great use of a large mirror to reflect light and make the space light and airy. Notice that there isn’t a shower curtain in sight. The glass shower screen doesn't obscure your view at all.

Tiles

You will tile the room from floor to ceiling, but your choice of material is vital. Dark shades don’t suit small rooms; it is a universal law. Choose bright tiles that have no pattern, or maybe sandstone or marble. They are classic products that span the decades. Who are we to argue with a design feature that works? Buck the trend at your peril.

If you follow my advice, your en suite will be a work of art and functional space that will improve your life. The mornings never need to be stressful again. That is what I call a result!
