Ensuite bathrooms: Ideas and tips for your projects

The bathroom is a crucial and very important space in any home, residence, hotel, or hospital. No matter if we are talking about a private home or a large-scale development, the bathroom should be a pleasant, functional, and practical place. And in this sense, ensuite bathrooms can fulfil these characteristics and, in addition, offer privacy and comfort.

This is where prefabricated ensuite bathrooms can be a beneficial and appropriate alternative.

The modular ensuite bathrooms that we offer at Hydrodiseño adapt to the requirements of your project since they are fully custom-made.

There are different ways to integrate and design an en suite bathroom for a bedroom. Read on for the best ideas and tips to apply to en suite bathroom designs for your next development.

What’s an ensuite bathroom?

Also called the “master bathroom,” this is a bathroom attached to or incorporated into the master bedroom. We could say that it’s a bedroom with an integrated private bathroom.

One of the benefits of ensuite bathrooms is that it extends the sense of intimacy and privacy that the bedroom provides, making it a favourite choice of architects and interior designers.

What’s the difference between an ensuite bathroom and a private bathroom?

The difference is that an ensuite bathroom is integrated within the bedroom. So, it can only be accessed from inside the room.

On the other hand, a private bathroom is located outside the bedroom, for example, in the hallway. So, access to it is located outside the bedroom.

Ensuite bathrooms: How much does an ensuite bathroom cost?

The price of an ensuite bathroom varies according to the characteristics and complexity of the project. When it comes to traditional construction, not only the cost of materials and labour must be considered, but also other issues and costs related to the installation.

The prefabricated bathrooms we offer at Hydrodiseño are a cost-effective option, which also reduces installation times and guarantees continuity at scale. Not only does it save you money, but it also saves time, avoiding unforeseen costs and delays.

We are ready to provide you with a budget that fits your development requirements. We offer you an all-in-one solution, where everything is included in the price, resulting in a complete high-quality product at the best price.

Ensuite bathroom ideas

If you are thinking of fully renovating an ensuite bathroom or building it from scratch, you may want to consider the following three ideas:

A dressing room or closet area

Many architects and interior designers like to include, when the space allows it, a dressing room or closet area within the ensuite bedroom.

In this sense, a dressing room can be integrated into the bedroom, in a straight-line design or an L-shape, or the dressing room can be placed inside the bathroom, especially when the bathroom doesn’t have doors that offer a separation from the bedroom.

Proper ventilation

When planning to install an ensuite bathroom, it’s essential to consider ventilation and plan for it, favouring the correct air circulation, and to place extractors or fans if necessary, so that the humidity of the shower or bathtub, as well as odours, are not a problem.

A “corner” or additional area

If space is available, it may be a clever idea to integrate a vanity, dresser, reading area, or desk.

If you choose this option, it would be ideal for this area to be close to a source of natural light, and that the furniture is the appropriate size for the space.

Small ensuite bathroom ideas

When space is limited, you must conduct a thorough preliminary analysis using your creativity to create, in this case, an ensuite bathroom that meets all the requirements in terms of functionality, comfort, and design.

Our modular ensuite bathrooms adapt to any space thanks to the 3D modelling developed by our technicians, but it’s also necessary to consider some factors that will help the spaces look bigger.

Here are three ideas for small ensuite bathrooms so you can take full advantage of the space you have for your project.

Use light tones and minimalist furniture and decoration.

When you have limited space for an ensuite bathroom, the best approach is to avoid dark tones that overload the visual of the bathroom. Using light colours and shades of beige and white will help the visual feeling of the room seem more spacious.

On the other hand, the decoration and furniture can have a minimalist, yet functional aesthetic to increase the storage space, but without taking up too much room.

Consider the lighting and install light points.

In small bathrooms, it’s always a good idea to install light points that help to create a relaxed and functional space, which at the same time provides a feeling of spaciousness.

LED lights are an excellent choice for ensuite bathrooms, as they offer the same power as traditional lights, while they are more environmentally friendly and consume less energy.

Place a bathroom cabinet with top and bottom storage space

A bathroom cabinet is a very important element when there isn’t much space available. Because it allows you to take advantage of both the upper space and the lower space to store hygiene and cleaning elements.
