Ensuites have come a long way from the small utility room that adjoins the master bedroom. Now offering an escape from the the daily grind of life, the ensuite has become a room focused around personal wellness, grooming and relaxation.
So what are the defining elements that take your ensuite from just another standard bathroom to the ultimate luxurious and relaxing space?!
Heated flooring is both a luxurious and practical addition. Some would say it is unnecessary because of our climate here in Brisbane, we think not! Not only does heated flooring provide warmth in the cooler months, it also assists in ventilating the space reducing the level of moisture that lingers around in the atmosphere – this is an essential in every bathroom!! But it doesn’t stop there, heated towel rails are a great addition, making your towels always feel soft and warm as well as drying them faster! (I think I’m sold!)
Tapware is such an intricate and impactful detail in a bathroom! For many years I feel like tapware was really just there for functionality and to blend in. But with so many different beautiful options on the market such as this Sussex Taps hob and mixer in our Chapel Hill residence, you can make your tapware the feature of your ensuite and oh how good it looks against the right finishes!
Free Standing Tub
Whenever possible we love the addition of a bath tub. There will always be those weeks ( or days… ) that just call for a long warm bath. Not only do they serve a purpose, but using a beautiful free standing bath as the focal point of the space, relaxation will be the only thing on your mind…
Lighting is of course a vital element to any bathroom. Sensor LED lighting on the other hand is an addition that can really bring your space to life! We opt for warm lighting to add a level of ambience and moodiness when the sun goes down still highlighting the hero materials, ensuring your ensuite looks just as good at night as it does during the day!
Who said rugs don’t go in bathrooms? A touch a softness against the all the harsh solid elements can be just what your space needs, but I feel like I never see it enough? Maybe that’s why it’s a luxury! Being an ensuite, a rug could be the perfect addition to tie your entire master suite together.
