Create an idyllic pamper zone built for two

If your ensuite has turned into a battleground for space, the solution may be a twin version. From ideal vanity size and fixtures, to maximising storage and perfecting the layout, here’s our expert guide to creating a harmonious dual zone that’s big on functionality and luxury.

Vanity volume

A double vanity with twin basins will mean no more stepping on each other’s toes at rush hour, but make sure the size is right, advises interior designer Naomi Nimmo of Nimmo Nielsen Collective. “Bench space and storage is often sacrificed with an additional basin, so we advise a minimum vanity width of 1500m,” says Naomi. “If space permits, bigger is better, with a sleek floating vanity 1800mm-2000mm wide ideal.” Keep surfaces clutter free by concealing power points in drawers and cabinets. “This enables you to keep your toothbrush or shaver charged and out of sight,” says Naomi.
