For couples fed up of sharing, the ultimate luxury is a bathroom each.
The traditional solution for this latter dilemma, his and hers sinks, is no longer enough. The secret to successful marriage or co-habitation is a whole bathroom to call your own, says Louise Ashdown, Head of Design at West One Bathrooms. We are now designing whole floors given over to adult-only, suite-style set-ups and in several recent projects has installed a separate bathroom for each half of the couple.
For this project in Sussex (pictured), Louise designed two very different spaces for husband and wife. Hers features crisp white sanitaryware, a separate shower and freestanding bath of a very feminine form and a dressing area. It is bathed in light with original exposed wood beams softening the overall ambiance. His, on the other hand, is manly in monochrome with a punchy black loo and black tiles.
