How To Create a Dream Ensuite

A Dream Ensuite is a stylish spa-like oasis that makes you feel relaxed and completely at peace. Where you can get ready, pamper yourself and release any tension of the day. A place to feel completely at bliss while soaking in your bubble bath or having a shower in ultimate luxury. Everyone has their own little spin on their dream ensuite, but here are a few inspirational ideas to consider when renovating or updating your oasis.

1. Be On Trend With Feature Tiles On Floor Or Feature Walls

One of the biggest trends in bathrooms this past year has been engaging tile floors and geometric feature walls. Bathrooms are becoming a work of art, and we are digging it!


2. Make It A Natural Spa-Like Oasis

An ensuite is a place to unwind and pamper yourself after a long days work. People are opting to put more money into the space to create the calming ambiance they crave after a hard day’s work. Natural, calming features, tones, and textures that emulate a spa oasis are what bathroom dreams are made of. 

3. Add Plants!

You can never go wrong with some greenery. It’s a reminder to slow down, a reminder to appreciate the simple things in life and the effortless beauty of untouched nature. Greenery has a magical way of bursting doses of positive calming radiance into any room. When creating your dream ensuite oasis don’t forget to add a touch of life.

4. Shower in Luxury With Steamers and Rainfall Shower Heads

If you’re going to upgrade the ambiance of your ensuite, you must invest in your shower experience. There are endless options to elevate your shower from relaxing rainfall showerheads, multiple shower spouts for all around warmth, massage shower heads, and of course steamers! Pick your budget and find your oasis preferences. 

If you go the steamer route don’t try to save money by undersizing the steam generator. Calculate the cubic volume of the shower space and then go by the manufacturer’s recommendation for size. Make sure the generator is located in an accessible spot so that workers can get to easily if needed in the future. https://www.houzz.com/magazine/bathroom-workbook-12-things-to-consider-for-your-remodel-stsetivw-vs~23821669

5. Oversized Showers

Stepping into a shower shouldn’t feel like your stepping into a glass cage. Oversized Showers have been all the rage in newer homes. If you have the room, opt for a larger shower to give yourself a more spacious, freeing spa experience. If you have multiple shower heads and ample space this could even eliminate the old husband-wife argument over who gets to shower first. Heck, you may never even leave the room after your upgrade!

6. Light natural and open

Not all bathrooms are created equal, we know sometimes you have to work with smaller darker spaces but there are workarounds to making these spaces just as inviting. White or light coloured walls open up a space even white accessories will help.

Add in more glass features; glass illuminates and magnifies the size of a room. Think beyond the main mirror, add mirror accents on cabinets and walls if possible.

Open vanities create a less “blocked in” feel in tighter spaces, just make sure you have accessible storage for all the things we normally hide beneath.

Lastly, layer your lighting! Overhead ceiling lighting alone can be unflattering casting unsightly shadows that are not present in natural lighting. A simple lighting change can make the world of difference to the confidence of the people in the bathroom and the WOW factor of the room itself. Layer your lighting with additional light fixtures on the walls or add a real game changer with a statement chandelier! Your ensuite is meant to stand out amongst the other bathrooms in your home, not only will you create a chic atmosphere with a statement fixture but you will also blow away prospective buyers if you’re selling your home! The kitchen is not the only room that can sell a house!

7. Keys to Remember in the Planning Your Oasis 

Old homes tend to have low, 30inch children sized vanities. A 36inch vanity is the new standard and will instantly increase the luxurious feel of your at home oasis. 

Get rid of those rusty self-installed in shower shelves, add nooks in the wall for soaps and shampoos.

Have an ultra-productive man that likes to shave in the shower? Add a fog-free mirror with lighting to help keep up his quick grooming routine. This could even act as your mirror for your in-shower face wash.

Hooks and towel bars are not afterthoughts. Plan these into your remodel to make them the most ergonomic and user-friendly. Think of them as a fun design element that will help increase the usability of your new space. There’s nothing worse than stepping out of a warm shower and having to prance across the room against to cold air to grab your towel of warmth, or leaving wet drips all over the floor as you try to find the towel to dry your hands.
