I’m always fascinated by the family bathrooms and master ensuites that they feature on the US version of property programmes. They make our little washrooms look so squat and impractical. I have a lovely ensuite bedroom and the washroom element was updated only a few short years ago. I don’t have twin basins or massive shower cubicle that could hold the england rugby team in one go. However, it does have very practical cupboards and an attractive counter top. Because it’s a bathroom setting, the lighting had to be installed by an expert and double isolated to stop any possible problem with water ingress from the basin or shower. The extractor fan is operated as soon as I put the lights on – however on musty days I also open the window. Modern facilities are so much nicer when they hide all the bathroom gubbins away!
