When looking back to 1950’s master bedrooms with separate twin beds, or further back to the early 1900s with separate master bedrooms, the idea may seem a little old-fashioned or impractical at first blush. However, the idea of separate spaces within married quarters is becoming increasingly popular as couples often have different work schedules and sleeping patterns. These days, couples are looking for more individual privacy, especially when it comes to their daily bathroom routines. This new, or perhaps old, concept is transforming master bedroom design, bringing about the latest luxury trend: His and Hers’ Bathrooms.

Separate His and Hers’ Bathroom Design

While it’s important to keep master bedroom design cohesive, it’s normal for couples to structure their sink & accessory layout to better suit their particular routine. Having his and hers’ bathrooms allow each person to design their own bathroom sanctuary, space where they can unwind at the end of the day or feel inspired as they get ready for the day ahead.

Semi-Separate His and Hers’ Bathrooms

For many couples, space doesn’t allow for fully separate bathrooms. Designers are modifying the concept with Jack and Jill style bathrooms, creating a divided space within the same master ensuite. This still allows for the couple to enjoy their own sink and vanity areas without having to vie for counter and mirror space.

Perhaps the separate spaces of the 1950’s couples weren’t such a bad idea after all. More and more couples are opting for added privacy and personalized spaces, and they just might be on to something.
