Blockcast host Jono Fleming offers the following tips for anyone considering creating a master ensuite.
Tip 1: Think about how you use the space
“When you’re designing your master ensuite, think about how you use the space and what you want in there. It might be a double shower or a bathtub, but whatever it is, you make sure that space is personalised to you and that will give it a sense of luxury.”
Tip 2: Keep things cohesive
“Keep things cohesive, neutral doesn’t mean boring. Soft colours and classic shapes will help give a bathroom longevity and adding interesting feature tiles can give the room personality without being too polarising.”
Tip 3: Think about your materials
“Save on your tile cost by using water resistant Gyprock on walls that aren’t in direct wet areas. Outdoor materials are already used to being exposed to the elements, so be creative when choosing your finishes*.”
Don’t get too held up on trends
“Design your space with longevity in mind, bathrooms can be expensive to renovate, so make sure your choices stand the test of time.”
Give your room a sense of luxury
“Give your room some finishing touches with beautiful bathroom products. Don’t forget, these small elements can really give your room a sense of luxury and that’s exactly what we want in a master ensuite.”
*Check installation manuals, product warranties and consult with a building professional prior to selecting materials not designed for bathroom use.
