An unusual rising new home design trend is to add an open bathroom to the master bedroom. Homeowners have widely different opinions of open bathrooms and whether or not this feature is right for their homes. Have you considered an open bathroom? Before you embrace this new trend make sure to consider:
- Privacy: The biggest hesitation homeowners often have about the open bathroom is the lack of privacy. An open bathroom creates a true en suite feel and places the sinks, shower, and bathtub in a shared space with the bedroom. In most homes with an open bathroom, the toilet remains behind a door for privacy.
- Moisture: Bathrooms add a significant amount of moisture and humidity to a home. You can help avoid moisture problems created by an open bathroom by installing a fresh-air ventilation system.
- Layout: There are several ways to create an open bathroom, including movable walls, a fixed divider, and dedicated alcoves. With a clever layout, you can achieve the open and airy atmosphere of an open-concept bathroom in your master suite while still maintaining full privacy.
