Ideas for a Luxury En-Suite
are many options available to you if youre designing a luxury
en-suite bathroom. Depending on how much space you have, you can
invest resources into a high quality shower enclosure, or into
a large tub that can be combined with other bathroom features.
At the same time, though, its possible to invest in traditional
Victorian and Edwardian suites, as well as in wet rooms and hi-tech
bathrooms with advanced home technologies. What are some of the
special features of these bathrooms, and what makes them special
for a luxury en-suite?
how much space you have in your en-suite will make a difference
as to how you can experiment with shower enclosures. In terms
of luxury, though, you can make your bathroom more luxurious by
investing in enclosures with specially thickened glass and frameless
structures; this can be a good idea if you want to show off the
quality of your shower doors and screens, and can be combined
with fine granite and bespoke tiling to create a distinctive en-suite.
bath tubs can be another good idea if youre trying to create
a comfortable en-suite. Claw foot tubs can be placed in the centre
of a room, and can be matched to other luxurious items like chandeliers
and fire places. If you have an open plan en-suite that features
large windows and private views, then you can go for deeper tubs
that allow you to look out into your garden and the surrounding
area while relaxing; make sure that you can draw the curtains,
though, if anyones walking past in the distance.
& Edwardian Suites
option to try for a luxury suite, Victorian and Edwardian styled
bathrooms can involve using traditional fixtures and a cluttered
effect for your en-suite; this can include investing in claw foot
tubs with shower attachments, as well as washbasins, close coupled
toilets with a flush chain, and high quality pedestals and bidets
for the rest of a bathroom. Marble and chrome materials can help
to add some contemporary finishes to your suite.
or building an en-suite bathroom as a wet room can allow you to
enjoy a luxurious shower; a walk in shower can be created, with
the whole room in effect becoming a shower enclosure with waterproofed
walls, ceilings, and floors. You can also invest in underfloor
heating and high quality shower heads and multiple jets - see

can also go for a more hi-tech approach to your en-suite, which
can involve fitting media stations in your bath; this can include
tablets with splash proof coverings, as well as hi-tech toilets
with bidet jets, heated seats, and self cleaning sensors. Its
also possible to invest in programmable LED lighting for an en-suite
bathroom, as well as in underwater speakers, which can allow you
to continue enjoying music when youre enjoying a bath.
