We've plenty of beautiful ensuite bathroom ideas. From compact spaces to luxe, hotel-inspired master bathrooms, there's an ensuite bathroom idea here for everyone.
It all starts with the entrance – why not make it a grand one, with a dramatic set of double doors? Or for a more modern look, opt for a steel framed glass partition to create a shower room, to separate the master bathroom from the bedroom. Dial up the grandeur with ornate cornicing, ceiling roses, fireplaces and even a chandelier, but keep bathroom fittings streamlined and modern – with modern freestanding bathtubs, wall mounted brass taps and other modern design ideas.
Want to go all-out? Upgrade your master bathroom with not one but two freestanding bathtubs, so you can comfortably soak together without having to share. A side table in the middle will help make sure that drinks are always within reach. After all, it's called the master bathroom for a reason - and it deserves to be show-stopping.
Looking for something a little out of the ordinary? Take inspiration from custom-made designs like the wooden bath (yes, really) designed by Beata Heuman, and her Fornasetti wallpapered bathroom cabinets. Swoon. For a more classic look, we turn to Marie Flanigan Interiors who created an elegant but understated bathroom combining rustic charm with modern bathroom fittings.
For hotel-inspired luxury, it's all about the little things like soft vintage rugs and sheepskins for keeping feet warm when you brush your teeth, bathtubs with a view (either in a bay window or set up with Netflix), and stylish in-bathroom lounge seating. You're bound to fall in love with these stunning ensuite bathroom ideas.
From statement bathroom lighting and striking tiles to vanity islands (like a kitchen island but for doing your makeup) and extra tall bathtubs deep enough to submerge you right to the shoulders, these are the ensuite bathroom ideas that dreams are made of.
But the real luxe factor is all in the details – like having the rim of your bath just wide enough for resting a glass of wine on. Now that's good design.
RISE 'N SHINE
The gorgeous sun burst mirror makes a great wake up call in this beautiful marble ensuite bathroom.
The geometric floor tiles, freestanding tub and brass details keep this bathroom firmly on trend. BC Designs has a great selection of compact tubs.
The deep drawers in this wall-hung vanity unit provide ample room for towels and toiletries, while its 'floating' style frees up floor space.
In a small space it makes sense to keep materials to a minimum, so the bath panel blends with the grey timber flooring. Heritage details such as the towel rail, mirror and wall lights add character.

ALL OUT OPULENCE
