En Suite bathrooms/Work-time evacuations

Been looking at houses recently, noticed that an awful lot seem to have en suites in the master bedroom nowadays. Be they original or retrofitted.

I honestly don't understand the thinking behind them. Why would I want to lay in bed and hear/smell every minutiae of my other half's bowel movement? How am I supposed to find her sexy after that?

Also with the shoe on the other foot, the horrors that I evacuate. I don't want to share that with anyone, let alone someone I actually like.

Theeeeeen you get into the post-shower steam. Leave the noisy extractor fan on and the light eminating from under the door, or let it out and sleep in a damp room?

These thoughts keep me awake at night.

    En suites were in the in thing in the late 90's early 00's, they sold houses.....

    If you're living on your own there's no much point, but if you have others living in the house, especially other adults / grown up children. I can see the appeal.

    lot of two bed houses have en suites for some reason. Much rather just have another dumper downstairs

    Depends if the en-suite also has a shower. Having two bathrooms can save a lot of time and fuss in the morning.

    You can keep your shaving kit in there without your kids having the risk of getting their hands on a razor?

    You can have bathroom products out without your guests seeing that you have a preference for Veet hair removal cream over wax strips when they need the loo?

    You can clean up after ;-) without anyone in the house seeing you do the post sex shuffle/cleanup/whatever else you like to do after.

    I personally like the idea.

    I quite like mine, but with the other 7 bathrooms and walk in wardrobe, I might just extend the master bedroom further down the east wing.

    They are standard on most/all new builds now. I have a family member who lives in a 2 bedroom house which has 3 bathrooms. En-suite, upstairs and a downstairs bathroom. Thats overkill at its finest as the house is barely big enough to have a lot of guests at the same time.

    I love having a poo in the bedroom.













    I don't have an ensuite

    Is that after you've taken it up the poopshoot and its loosened everything?

    I like ours, it means I can have a peaceful shave and shower without the kid coming in. It also means we have a proper shower enclosure instead of a glass screen on the bath.

    We also have a loo downstairs and there are (now) only three of us in our house.

    I used to have a monster of a house and they tend to have proper ensuites, big ones off of a big bedroom which made sense with all that space. I guess it's a selling point in a normal house, maybe it sounds a bit posh even if its a cramped little space. I've got one in my current house but its three storey and they tend to put a bog on each floor somewhere.
    Also, it means I can lay my morning cable at my own pace, just me and the iPad. Nothing like being able to let old Barry white out with so much as a hurried push. I have digital scales in there and weigh myself before and after each visit, laughing if there's a large difference. I'm still trying for the holy grail - a one kilo monster.
    I'd have no chance of a record breaker if I was being hassled by the wife and kids.
    This is why ensuites are needed.

    If you have to ask those questions, then you're in the wrong forum.

    Too right especially if some members in the household have form for taking a very long time getting ready in the morning. I either get up early or walk the dog and try when I get back.

    Glass of water by the bed is all that is needed for that

    You're posh, what's wrong with using her dressing gown for a quick wipe and mop up? Works for me.

    Where does the cinnamon ring (female of course) fit into to all this pork and beef talk?

    I looked at one three bedroom house with four toilets recently! En suite for the master and second bedroom, one in the bathroom and one downstairs.
    Thats enough for us all to take a dump at the same time!
    Personally I find it more satisfying to have my daily poo at work so that I get paid for it.

    My first lesson on the first day of my apprenticeship was to always take a dump on the clock every day.
