Did you know that 9 in 10 homeowners choose the bathroom as their top priority renovation?
Adding an ensuite bathroom is likely to be one of the most convenient and desirable enhancements you can possibly add to your property.
There are many reasons why our clients add ensuites: whether you’re fed up with the morning rush of everyone queuing for the bathroom, or you have older children who now to seem to have suddenly taken an interest in personal hygiene and spend every waking hour in there, or you may simply want a little bit of privacy for yourselves.
But by adding an ensuite bathroom, does this increase the value of your property? Well, most recent property research surveys claim it can increase your value by 5%.
However, if you are carrying out home improvements to increase the value of your home, you need to be aware of the ceiling value of your property.
Do I Have Space For An Ensuite?
Many homeowners believe that in order to fit an ensuite, you need a colossal master bedroom. Nowadays, this just isn’t the case. In fact, so long as you have a space measuring 0.8m x 1.8m, this is really the minimum size space to consider building an en suite comprising of a shower enclose, hand basin and toilet.
We can also implement into the design, several features which will minimise the amount of space required, such as:
• An underfloor heating system which frees up the wall space rather than a bulky radiator.
- • Wall-mounted toilet – If you have space in the walls of your small bathroom to build-in a toilet tank, you can save both floor space and legroom with a wall-mounted toilet.
- • Recessed shelves and niches as a place to put your bathroom accessories are a great way to use stud walling and look like a stylish design feature.
- • Wet Room – Install a wet room section with a separate sink and toilet instead of a separate shower enclosure.
Many bathrooms can be awkward shapes, with the most common being those that are in listed buildings, ensuite bathrooms or bathrooms in attics that have been created as part of a loft conversion project.
You can minimise disruption and costs by keeping all the plumbed items on one wall, or by building your en suite next to an existing bathroom, so that drains and water supplies can be shared.
