A freestanding bathtub gets prime position to take in the wonderful views from this master ensuite bedroom wing
Master Ensuite Bedroom Wing by designer Celia Visser

My clients wanted an elegant, functional bathroom with a feature bathtub, twin basins and showering areas, all contained within the new wing of their house.
Wonderful views of the garden and outlying orchard are on show throughout the house, and the brief was to bring nature into this new space, tying in the interior spaces with the outdoors.
The inspiration for this design came from the stunning views that can be seen out of the second-storey bedroom windows. As privacy was not an issue, I took full advantage of this vista by placing a beautifully shaped freestanding bath central to the window, on a tiled plinth, at the foot of the bed.
The plinth rises 200mm from the carpeted floor and uses LED lighting to define its area. Raising the floor made it possible to bathe and take in the view at the same time.
Timber shelving behind the bathtub gives plenty of useful storage – it also conveniently houses the tapware.
Placing the bathtub out in the bedroom area also worked very well for the design of the adjacent ensuite, as it gave me more space to work with. In here, a custom-designed dual-basin unit sits atop a simple timber oblong vanity, with an open space between for towel storage. A full-width mirror with built-in lighting is floated on the wall above.
The tall glass-and-timber linen unit opposite was designed to hide the toilet from view and store all bathroom essentials. At the end of the room is a fully tiled, his’n’hers walk-in shower, complete with robe hooks and heated towels rails.
