When looking back to the 1950’s master bedrooms with separate twin beds, or even 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 notion of a bit of separation within living spaces is becoming increasingly popular as couples often have different needs, work schedules, and sleeping patterns. These days, couples are looking for more personalized space, especially when it comes to their daily bathroom routines. This new, or rather old, concept is transforming master bathroom design bringing about the latest luxury trend: His and Hers’ Bathrooms.

Separate His and Hers’ Bathroom Design

While it’s key to keep the master bathroom layouts complementory, couples may have different tastes with it comes to tile, sinks, faucet designs, and faucet finishes. Having his and hers’ bathrooms enables each person to design their own bathroom sanctuary. They may prefer to structure their sink & accessory layout to better suit their personal preferences and routines – creating a space where they can unwind at the end of the day or an area that inspires and motivates as they get ready for the day ahead.

Semi-Separate His and Hers’ Bathrooms

For many couples, space may not allow for entirely separate bathrooms. In this case, designers can modify the concept with Jack and Jill style bathrooms, creating an individualized space within the same master ensuite. This allows the couple to enjoy personalized sink and vanity areas without vying 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 opt for added privacy and personalized areas of retreat, and they might be on to something.
