I take it that's what you want to do at your place @JP9? If that's the case, I would encourage you to share some photos of your house and the floor plan so members can see what you are working with and suggest the best way to tackle the project. If you're lucky, wonderful members like @redracer01 or @MitchellMc might even create some 3D renders for you to visualise what your ensuite could look like.

Hello @JP9 

 

The minimum allowable size for a toilet is usually 1 meter wide by 2 meters in length. A wardrobe is not that big. Walls may need to be moved and plumbing connections will need to be considered in the initial stage of planning. Should these issues be addressed I see no reason why you can't have an en-suite in that particular area.

Thanks. 
Yes, I will have to move the wall from the one bedroom.

Hi @JP9,

 

It's great to see @redracer01 has been able to assist. Was this en suite to be accessed by both rooms or just one, if it was just one which one? What's the current measurement of the closet? If you were to move the wall out to inline with the window in bedroom 2, then you might have enough space. If it came down to centimetres, you might like to consider a toilet/sink combo.

Hi M

 

It will eat into the downstairs bedroom, the one below the master bedroom upstairs. 
 
this bulge of the room cupboard and the dressing thing in the adjacent room is about  2m. Can be seen in the picture.

Okay, so I came across this set up.... and I love it. Doesn’t look like it needs the initial space that I thought it would take. 
Does bunnings have colour basins?

@JP9,

 

You might like to check out our Cibo range of coloured bathroom basins. The closest I have found colour-wise is the Cibo Design Pale Pink Round Thin Edge Ceramic Basin

Hello @JP9 

 

Looking at the layout of the bathroom the designers have made some very well hidden choices that make it look roomy. The toilet is a floor standing unit with an in-wall cistern presenting a much shorter profile. It will however require specialized mounting and fitting. They maximized the vanity space by placing a corner unit instead of a straight unit. The corner type vanity is not currently available at Bunnings but it is still possible to acquire this in the open market. Perhaps its is the way the photo was taken but the color I see is almond ivory. To make the room look even bigger I suggest plain white and perhaps a neutral colored wall. The tiles they used on the floor is meant to be confusing as it breaks up the view. The door has been mounted as such that it opens out instead of in, providing maximum walk in space. The only issue i see with the current set up is that when a tall person is sitting on the toilet their left knee is in contact with the door of the vanity. Perhaps a straight narrow vanity would be more preferable. Good luck and stay safe!
