We are extending our upstairs as currently we have 4 bedrooms but no bathroom, our main bathroom is downstairs. The architect has drawn plans up for us and the best use of space creates 3 double bedrooms and a bathroom. The bathroom will be 10*10 ft which so she is splitting into ensuite and bathroom. At the moment I don't think we need an ensuite as we will still have a bathroom downstairs and I would prefer instead of the ensuite use the room for a bigger bedroom. However I don't want to be short sighted and then regret it. The other thing is I would like a big master bedroom but to do this we would have to make one room a single so 8*8. What do you think is better 3 double rooms all approx 10*11 or 1 large master 11 * 15, 1 double 10 *12 and 1 single
Bit confused by your post but will give you my preference which is 3 doubles and 2 bathrooms - I mean 2 showering areas. Better to have a shared bathroom than an en suite. But I wouldn't consider buying a house with only one showering area without a plan to modify it.
I would have two bedrooms of a decent double size, one slightly smaller to be used for a child or study, and a lovely big master suite with a dressing area or walk in walldrobe and ensuite. At the end of the day the buyers will want a lovely bedroom for themselves.
In short we will still have a bathroom downstairs but our options are 3 good size bedrooms all approx 11 ft square, one ensuite and 1 family bathroom or 1 big master with dressing room, 1 good size room, 1 smaller bedroom and family bathroom.
I big master and dressing room/ensuite, and 2 good sized bedrooms if it was me! you have a main bathrooom downstairs and an ensure upstairs that should be enought if you are caught in the middle of the night or ill.
Tranquilgardens, that's what I'm thinking, the sloping ceilings mean that the kids rooms may be 10*11ft but actually will have less useable space. I think the room a ensuite would take would be better used to make the bedrooms bigger and we could out 2 doors in as suggested.
