Isn’t it the ultimate luxury to be able to have your own bathroom right next to your bedroom? Okay, so you may only have to walk down the hall to the family bathroom, but when you’re getting ready for work or a night out, or you want to use the loo in the night, it’s so much easier to have your own en suite. But if you don’t have one already, what’s stopping you? You might think having an en suite is something out of reach, but there’s no reason why it can’t be yours. To get yours set up and running in no time at all, follow these steps.
Find The Perfect Spot
First of all, you’re going to want to make sure you have the space for it. By taking at look at this guide by realhomesmagazine.co.uk, you’ll see that it’s often best when you have a small room next to yours to convert - or even some kind of storage. If you have a large bedroom, you may even be able to block off some of the space and build it right there. The tricky part is going to be the plumbing, so make sure it’s doable by getting expert advice first.
Decide On The Size
With your space picked out, next you’re going to want to work out what kind of size you’ve got the play with. This might sound silly, but until you know the dimensions of the room, you won’t be able to work out the layout or what you can fit in there. So, be sure that you can work out a decent size to fit in all of the bathroom essentials.
Choose A Design
Then, you’re also going to want to decide on your main design theme. This may be easy if your other bathrooms are decorated similarly, but you may also want to take your bedroom decor into consideration, or even go with something completely different. Whether you love the modern look or prefer something vintage, take a look at these bathroom ideas for a good dose of inspiration.
Pick Out Your Suite
Next, you’re going to want to select all of the pieces that will make you your bathroom suite. Not only do you need the loo and shower or even a bath if it fits, but you need the fixtures too. Be sure to visit a range of expert sites such as tapwarehouse.com that will show you your options for things like taps and basins, as well as all the basics. With your choices narrowed down, order what you need and move on to the last step.
Get To Work
Now all that’s left to do is to get to work. You may be installing the bulk of the en suite yourself. But when it comes to plumbing, if you’re not skilled in the area, just make sure that you get a professional to cover off the bits that you can’t. After your decorating is done and your suite is installed, it’s time to enjoy the perks of having a stunning en suite.
