After refurbishing Mrs D’s main bathroom just over a year ago she asked me to come over to have a chat about the possibility of putting a new en-suite in from scratch, something she had wanted for a while.
After discussing it with her I decided that the best way to go forward was to incorporate the cupboard above the stairs, with an additional 1.2 square metres taken from the bedroom. I then turned this space into a small but perfectly formed en-suite to her main bedroom. The really good thing is that this additional shower room was achieved with very little impact on the size of the bedroom.
According to OnTheMarket.com adding an en-suite to a house with only one bathroom can add over 5% to the value of your home – but I don’t think Mrs D will be moving any time soon.
