Master Bathrooms - Does Size Matter?

Beautiful master bathrooms are the result (firstly) of a carefully planned space which is thereafter executed with flair in your chosen style.

Yes, the size of the bathroom does matter but fortunately there is such a variety of bathroom fixtures available - from compact to grandiose in scale - that your bathroom design can be totally flexible, creating fancy bathrooms even in small spaces.

Before we get to the bathroom design though, it is important to carefully consider your wants and needs first.

For Example:

Do you and your partner use the bathroom at the same time, perhaps to get ready for work in the morning? Do you prefer to shower or bath?

Asking yourself questions like these will help you determine for example whether separate basins and vanities are a must, whether you should consider a generous twin shower and whether your hot water supply will be adequate.

It is extremely helpful to write down your requirements - whether to clarify you and your partner's needs and thoughts or to create a brief for your architect or bathroom designer.

And so, without further ado, let's help you create your dream bathroom wish list! (From the lists below, either pick just one or list them in order of priority.)

Bath Tub - Which One is Right for You?

Note: Having a big spa-bath may seem like a good idea at first, but for many people the novelty soon wears off or it takes too long to fill and so it becomes a bit of a white elephant.

On the other end of the scale, not having a bath in the master bathroom may suit your lifestyle perfectly, but may not be good for future potential buyers of your home.

Hmm, you may need to rethink this one...
