Posted on 9 February 2023

There are many benefits to having an en-suite bathroom including increased value to your home, more flexibility, improved quality of life and maximum comfort and privacy. If you’ve been looking for a little more luxury or you simply can’t understand why your home won’t sell, keep reading!

Why won’t my house sell?

The first question is, do you have an en-suite? If the answer is no, it’s likely that this is the reason why your house isn’t selling. Although an en-suite wasn’t a thing two decades ago, it’s certainly a facet that the majority of people are demanding today. Potential buyers love the idea of flexibility and opportunity, so if you have an en-suite, this will be an instant bonus to those viewing your property.

You may be thinking, if the master bedroom is big enough, the buyers could create their own bespoke en-suite, but the fact is people don’t want to wait and don’t want to spend all of their time working on a home they’ve just bought. Having the en-suite already there and in full working order means that they can enjoy their new property from the very start.

Why won’t people rent my house?

It’s a common misconception that people are less picky when it comes to renting but that really isn’t the case. Whether your home is up for sale or up for rent, those viewing your property are less inclined to take on a house that doesn’t have an en-suite. If those looking to rent are choosing between a property with an en-suite and one without, their choice is increasingly likely to be the property with.

The Benefits of an En-Suite Bathroom:

1. Accommodates to families

An en-suite may be seen as a luxury but it’s also a practical addition that offers a family home a little extra something to make daily life just that bit easier. For families with younger children, toilet training can be increasingly difficult with one bathroom because children can’t hold it like we can, so having your very own toilet means that there will be little to no accidents.

Also, if your children are sleeping well for the first time in what feels like months, having your own personal bathroom will ensure that you won’t disturb their sleep. The en-suite is a discreet place where you can go out of the way for a little privacy.

The American bathroom standard has been carried over to the UK, what with their higher expectations of bathroom design, teaching us how bathrooms can be practical and luxurious too. Many people associate en-suite bathrooms with hotels because interior design has become a massive thing within the hotel industry, enticing custom with lavish furnishings and fittings. The thing is, more and more people are trying to replicate this in their very own homes, which means when people look to move house, they are looking for a much higher standard.

Investing in an en-suite – even if you don’t necessarily have an overly large master bedroom – can offer convenience and a little hotel-luxury into your home. With your new improved bedroom, early mornings in the winter won’t seem as bad when all you have to do is roll out of a bed and walk a few steps into a nice warm shower.

3. Adds value to your home

Having technically another room in the home is certainly going to up the price of your property and that said, an en-suite can add another 5.1% onto the value of your property. So whether you’re looking to spruce up your home and enjoy an improve quality of life or want to make your home more desirable to potential buyers – an ensuite can do this for you.
