What are the different design choices for en-suite bathrooms?

There are a number of different design options that you can consider for your en-suite bathroom. These include:

  • fitted bathroom furniture
  • the type of toilet

Fitted bathroom furniture for en-suite bathrooms

One of the most popular design options for en-suite bathrooms is fitted bathroom furniture. This involves using custom built furniture that adds storage and is built around key bathroom fixtures like the sink and the toilet. As such, fitted bathroom furniture can be highly effective for increasing the amount of space in the en-suite, and creating a cohesive overall design. The cabinets and units are designed to blend seamlessly with the bathroom decor, and can include tall cabinets, storage benches, vanity sink units and corner units.

Types of toilet

There are a number of different types of toilet available that can have both an aesthetic and practical impact on your en-suite bathroom space. These include:

  1. Close coupled toilets- This type of toilet has the cistern directly attached to the toilet bowl, and these are easy to install and very popular.
  2. Wall hung toilets- These toilets are mounted on the wall, with the cistern concealed behind the wall. They create a minimalist, contemporary look but they do need a more complex installation.
  3. Back-to-wall toilets- These bring the same sleek appearance, and are similar to wall hung toilets, but the toilet sits on the floor with the cistern hidden within a unit or the wall.

Types of sink

Finally, you should also consider the type of sink design for your en-suite bathroom. Different types of sink option include:

  1. Pedestal sinks- These are sinks that are supported by a pedestal, and are available in a range of styles and designs, suitable for both traditional and contemporary spaces.
  2. Wall-mounted sinks- These sinks are attached directly to the wall, freeing up floor space and creating a modern, airy feel. They are ideal for small bathrooms but require robust wall support.
  3. Vessel sinks- Vessel sinks sit on top of the countertop, resembling bowls. They are often used in high-end designs due to their striking appearance and are available in various materials like glass, stone, and ceramic.
  4. Inset sinks- These are mounted into the countertop, providing a seamless look. They are practical and easy to clean, making them a popular choice for contemporary bathrooms.
