If you're working with your real estate agent to find the perfect home that you can customize, you likely wouldn't consider a master bedroom without an ensuite. In case you have never heard of an "ensuite," it is the bathroom or bathroom/walk-in closet combination in your master bedroom. An ensuite makes many homeowners feel comfortable and like they have everything they need at their disposal. Use this guide to understand why an ensuite is important and to help you make your ensuite design choices.
The Bedroom Is a Sanctuary
As you begin to design your custom home, think about the peaceful life you'll have when you can use your bathroom, take a shower, put on makeup and get dressed without having to worry about anyone seeing you going from room to room. This is perhaps the biggest benefit of an ensuite. Your master bedroom becomes the most private place in your home.
Additionally, you can design your ensuite to be on the other side of the walk-in closet, so that you won't disturb your spouse when you get up in the middle of the night.
An Ensuite Can Be Customized
These days, people do a lot in their bathrooms. As you're designing, take into consideration that you might want to install a phone, a television, an alarm or even a surround-sound stereo system in the ensuite. Imagine soaking in the tub watching television or listening to some smooth jazz to take away all the stress of the day. Then ask your builder to make the accommodations for these items, so that you can have them installed.
Many ensuites today are decked out with fixtures that only the owner finds enjoyable. Some of these include:
- double sinks
- multi-directional shower heads
- custom cabinetry
- vanity area with a space for a chair to put on makeup
Luxury Abounds In the Ensuite
As you're creating your dream master bedroom and ensuite, you'll have several choices in luxury materials. You probably already know the type of furniture you want to deck out your bedroom, but in the bathroom you can choose high-end materials to really make you feel as if you're living in the lap of luxury. Some of these include:
- marble flooring
- crystal chandeliers
- claw-foot tub
- hot tub
- stone wall and deep shower
Since you'll spend a lot of time in your master bedroom and the ensuite is yours exclusively to use, take your time in choosing the right materials.
Have fun in designing your entire custom home, but remember that the master bedroom with an ensuite deserves to have a lot of your attention, next to the kitchen, of course. Ask your real estate agent about other areas of the home that should be customized to fit your style, desires and needs. They may also be able to show you some designs that others have created, so that you can take a few ideas from each.
