The 1 Thing You Should Never Do In An En Suite

It is vital that space is used effectively when adding a small ensuite shower room, and making good bathroom suite choices can maximise usable space.

Introduction

Upon staying in a B&B in Filey recently I took the opportunity to take some pictures of the en suite:

Overall, I thought the en suite was nicely proportioned vs the bedroom and made good use of space, with a basin in the centre and a toilet at one end with a chambered corner to make the room a bit less intrusive in the bedroom.

There was a sliding door to avoid the door having to swing out into the bedroom or swing into the small en suite.

However, a quadrant shower enclosure has been chosen to fit in one end of the en suite and I think that this is a very poor use of space as it needlessly creates a pointless narrow gap down the side of it, and reduces the size of the enclosure – more cramped showering!

In this instance they would have been much better off installing a square or rectangular tray that spanned the entire width of the en suite with a door across it:

Bifold doors open into the shower enclosure and therefore will not clash with the basin or any other items in small en suites.

Often when installing an en suite I will build the room to suit the width of the shower tray, ensuring a proper fit.

In this way, the building work is co-ordinated with the plumbing work, and this is is where having a project manager that ties all the trades together is really worth investing in.
