In the wake of the recent Block en suite reveals, we asked former Blockheads (and now interior designers) Alisa and Lysandra Fraser to share five tips to make sure your ensuite is an extra special addition to your master bedroom.
- Create a seamless transition
Design your ensuite with a cohesive and harmonious connection to your master bedroom. Consider using similar colour schemes, materials, and design elements in both spaces. This creates a sense of continuity and luxury, making the ensuite feel like an extension of the master bedroom.
- Maximise natural light
Incorporate as much natural light as possible. Large windows, skylights, or even a glass partition between the ensuite and bedroom can introduce an abundance of light. Natural light not only enhances the overall ambiance but also makes the space feel more inviting and spacious.
- Choose high quality fixtures and fittings
Invest in premium fixtures and fittings for your ensuite. This includes high-quality tapware, showerheads, and vanity units. Opt for durable materials that are both functional and visually appealing. These details can significantly elevate the sense of luxury in the space.
- Prioritise storage
Ensuite bathrooms often benefit from ample storage. Consider vanity units that provide sufficient storage for toiletries, towels, and personal items, or shaving cabinets that provide head height storage. Well-organised storage can keep the ensuite clutter-free and functional.
- Incorporate statement features
To make your ensuite stand out, include statement features. This could be a stunning freestanding bathtub, a unique tile pattern, a decorative mirror, or a stylish light fixture. These eye-catching elements can become focal points and add a touch of luxury to the space.
