Ensuite bathrooms

An ensuite bathroom is a term used to describe a private bathroom that is located within a bedroom and is only accessible from the bedroom. This type of bathroom provides increased privacy and convenience for the person using the bedroom, as they do not have to share the bathroom with anyone else or leave the room to use the bathroom. Ensuite bathrooms are commonly found in higher-end homes, and master bedrooms. They typically include a toilet, sink, and shower or bathtub. Some ensuite bathrooms may also include additional amenities such as a bidet, heated flooring, or a spa-like atmosphere. The inclusion of an ensuite bathroom is often seen as a desirable feature in real estate listings and can add value to a home.
