A master bedroom ensuite can add a beautiful touch to any home. Whether you are renovating or building, designing the perfect ensuite bathroom should be on your list of things to consider. We understand it can feel overwhelming at times – which is why we’ve put together this handy guide.

Must-haves For The Perfect Ensuite Bathrooms

Although this list isn’t exhaustive, it’ll give you a nice starting point for you to consider which elements you should include when designing your own perfect ensuite bathroom.


Your tile selection can make or break your bathroom – which is why it pays off to pay attention to your tiling choices. Are you interested in glossy or matte or a cover in between? Are custom mosaics a better choice for your bathroom? Either way, are you interested in tiles going to the roof of your bathroom, or would you prefer to leave a gap?

Personal Touches

Personal touches can be expressed in your ensuite bathroom in a variety of ways:

  • Feature tiles, which add a unique and interesting element to your bathroom.
  • A bit of greenery adds luxury and colour.
  • A considerate and personalised layout will transform your bathroom from good to great.


When it comes to walls, the questions don’t lie exclusively in tiling choices. Consider adding a shower nook to make it especially modern, but also think about which wall decorations will make your bathroom dream come to life.


Transform any bathroom with smart colour choices. This shouldn’t only be reflected in the walls and floors. Colour can be expressed in all aspects of your bathroom, from sink to shower. For a stunning industrial bathroom, consider cool silvers paired with a warm wall tone.

You can also add dashes of colour through decorations: plants, cabinets, pictures, ultimately the choice is yours.


When it comes to lighting, you have a variety of choices. We recommend considering the type of feeling you want to inspire in your ensuite bathroom: modern, classic, industrial, vintage – the choice is yours. Either way, versatile lighting solutions are at your fingertips.

Your Needs

At the end of the day, you should also consider your needs when creating your perfect ensuite bathroom. Do you require a bathtub? If not, you can consider a walk-in shower. If a bathtub is important, consider which type of bathtub you need. There are many beautiful standalone designs available on the market.
