If you’ve got an en-suite bathroom in your home, you’ll know how beneficial they are. If you haven’t and you’ve read our guide on creating an ensuite bathroom, we’re about to give you 5 good reasons why you should consider having one added.

Once considered something of a luxury, en-suite bathrooms are now increasingly common features in homes of all different shapes and sizes.

Here are 5 benefits of an en-suite bathroom:

1. Adds value & appeal to your home

First and foremost, an en-suite bathroom adds value to your home. When (if) you come to sell it, potential buyers will look favourably on an en-suite bathroom as it’s something most people want. So, if you’ve got one already and a similar house nearby that’s on the market hasn’t, it could be a differentiating factor.

2. Affords Convenience

En-suite bathrooms are super convenient. You’ll never have to walk down the hall in the early hour of the morning again. You’ll have everything you need just a few steps away, so you can get up to pee in the middle of the night and be back in bed before you know it.

3. A Quiet, private space just for you

Family bathrooms are usually utilitarian in nature and more focused on serving a purpose than acting as a quiet, private space for you. En-suite bathrooms, on the other hand, can be exactly that: quiet, private and luxurious. The perfect place for you to relax and indulge yourself after a hard day at work.

4. Reduces the bathroom rush

If you’ve got a busy house with school-age kids and/or teenagers, you’ll know that the morning rush for the bathroom can be a nightmare. Unless you’ve adopted a take a number and wait delicatessen-style approach to bathroom queuing, there’s a good chance you’ll miss your turn at least a few times in a month.

With an en-suite bathroom, though, you’ll never have to worry about rushing to beat the kids again. Plus, you can keep all your nice toiletries inside without worrying about them getting used up in a flash.

5. Future proofs your home

Maybe you haven’t got any children yet, but there’s a good chance you’ll have some in the future. By building an en-suite bathroom now you’ll future proof your home for when it becomes that bit busier. It’s better to experience a little disruption now than further down the line when you’ve got small children running about.
