Trendy Bathroom Designs & Feng Shui

Posted by Jane Langof on 4 August 2015 | 50 Comments

One of the hottest bathroom design trends in luxury homes is the integration of the ensuite with the master bedroom.  This means that the bedroom and bathroom are designed together in an open plan layout, often with a luxuriously appointed bath featuring as the main attraction.  So, imagine a glass wall between the bathroom and bedroom and the excitement (or not) of being able to watch your partner bathe while you lay in bed.  Is this bathroom design trend good or bad for Feng Shui in the home?

Firstly let's consider the main function of bathrooms and bedrooms.  A bedroom should be a nurturing space, to support sleep, intimacy and relaxation.  Bathrooms are becoming more like a sanctuary or day spa, and while I think this is a wonderful thing, let's not forget the main function of a bathroom - cleansing and elimination! 

So although an integrated bathroom and bedroom may look fabulously trendy, from a Feng Shui perspective the energy of these two functional areas should not be combined.  The bathroom and bedroom should be kept as separate rooms.

If you're planning a new bathroom or ensuite for your renovation or building project, here are a few Feng Shui tips to consider when designing your bathroom:

  • Keep bathrooms tucked away behind solid walls, and avoid having internal glass walls between the bathroom and other rooms inside the home.
  • Avoid placing your bed in direct alignment with the bathroom door.
  • Design a bathroom so that the toilet is not the first thing you see when you open the door. If you have a large bathroom space, try to conceal the toilet behind a wall.
  • Avoid having the toilet pointing directly towards the area where the bed head will be placed.
  • When considering the placement of mirrors in bathroom design, try to avoid having the mirror reflecting the toilet.
  • Open a window and install a good quality exhaust fan to allow fresh air to circulate. Good ventilation is important in Feng Shui to prevent energy from becoming stagnant.
  • The location of bathrooms in a floor plan can indicate a draining effect on wealth, depending on where they're placed.  Bathrooms are best located in an area that contains negative 'flying star' energy, and this can be determined by a professional Feng Shui consultant.

What do you think of the new trend in combining the bathroom with the bedroom?  If you have a burning opinion I'd be interested to hear from you!

  • Hi Linda, that sounds lovely, however it's not easy to give you a general answer without analysing the Feng Shui of the house.

    The decision of whether to have larger or smaller windows depends upon the configuration of energy entering the house from that specific direction.

    This will be unique for each home depending upon the external environment and the 'flying star' chart, which is the horoscope of the building. If the energy is favourable, larger windows will be beneficial, but if the energy is challenging you might be recommended to have comparatively smaller windows. Jane :)

  • Great article - how about large glass windows in bathrooms (as long as the neighbours can't see in) - so that when you are having a bath, you can relax with the view of nature.
    Is it favourable or not?
