Ensuite Bathroom

You can remodel an ensuite bathroom at an affordable cost, with new fixtures and finishes, especially using materials like agglomerate sheeting and glass mosaic tiles that can be fitted over existing surfaces.

If you have spare space in your bedroom, chances are that you can install an ensuite, although if you’re planning on converting a small adjacent bedroom, that could negatively affect the value of your property.
Consider space-saving sanitaryware like corner baths and basins, wall-hung toilets and towel rails for freeing up floorspace. In place of a vanity unit you could use open shelves to store towels and toiletries; install a shower enclosure instead of a bathtub-and-handset combination. A single colour scheme in white, off-white or soft neutral shades creates an impression of space, as do large floor tiles in the same colour. Fit a mirrored connecting door or splash out on a reflective glass mosaic feature panel.

Remember, the ensuite is essentially an extension of your bedroom, so choose complementary colours, even a glass mosaic wallcovering that coordinates with the main room’s wallpaper.

  • Bring the bedroom flooring into the ensuite, with click-together, timber effect planks or stylish square floor tiles in virtually any size.

  • A dazzling, reflective glass mosaic panel or feature wall can introduce extra light into an ensuite bathroom, especially lit with halogen or LED spotlights.
