Will converting a shower room to a study devalue my house?

We currently have a 5 bed house. The shower room is small and badly done both in terms of layout, finish and look. It's also a saniflow toilet. We'd like to rip it out and convert it to a study. Estate agents have advised that this will devalue the house as the main bathroom is an en suite to one of the smaller bedrooms. However, we converted the loft and created a separate shower room upstairs so there's always access to a shower room and toilet. The shower room we want to get rid of is hideously ugly and is now leaking so we'd rather rip it out than waste money fixing. Estate agents have advised replacing with a new shower suite but we don't ever use this shower room. Would ripping out this ugly shower room and replacing with a study really devalue the house? My concern is that it is so badly done and the size means the layout is limited that this itself could put buyers off. Thanks for advice!
