Six sexy en suites

Do what comes naturally in these super-sized rooms

With our busy working lives, we all know how practical ‘his and hers’ basins are, as they provide plenty of room for a couple to freshen up in the morning. But for a place to really pamper yourself, you can’t beat an enormous bathroom suite with, if you’re lucky, a dressing room attached. With that enticing thought in mind, we’ve found six, spacious bathrooms that are perfect for two people to enjoy together – whatever the time of day. So which one would suit you?

1. The ultra-bling

Forget about gold taps – give the scheme the works with wall-to-wall brass.
Brass bateau bath and La Loire brass bath/shower mixer, Catchpole & Rye. Winchester Clover Leaf brass lamp table, Living by Christiane Lemieux at House of Fraser.

2. The exotic

Create a steamy, jungle ambience with potted plants, natural textures and Oriental-style glass. Installing a deep modern tub lets you wallow in all the luxury…
For a similar bath, see the Bette Lux Highline at CP Hart.

3. The dresser

Chair? Check. Arty alcove? You got it. Glam chandelier? And how – but where can we stash all our clothes? Surely not on the floor?

Just look the other way…

These are PK22 Lounge chairs by Poul Kjaerholm for Fritz Hansen.

The I Fiumi bath is by Boffi. The Shadow Dharmar chandelier is by Barovier&Toso. The storage is by Poliform.

4. The Parisian

Would you prefer the shower or a bath this morning? The choice is all yours ma chérie
The reconditioned bath is from Eliot Marsden. Architectural Bronze Casements could make a similar shower enclosure.

5. The loft

Anyone who’s converted their attic knows how much room there is to exploit, but getting the design right takes skill and imagination. Hard to find fault with this beauty…
Play Associates designed and built the vanity unit. The mosaic floor tiles are from Stone & Ceramic Warehouse.

6. The barn

Okay, you’re not going to take up all the floor space, but if you’ve got it – flaunt it.
