Reducing Number of Bathrooms - Will it Devalue?

We have an oddly shaped upstairs - with four small bedrooms, an ensuite (7 x 5ft) and a small family bathroom (9 x 9 ft) The bedroom that is supposed to be the master has an ensuite, but where the door to the room & ensuite are, you can't have a king size bed anywhere, only a double at a push. So we're currently in Bedroom 2 which is a better layout for us and therefore don't use the ensuite. What I was thinking of doing was - the ensuite & bathroom are back to back - so knocking through the family bathroom, to create a bigger bathroom, and closing over the ensuite entrance to make a more useable bedroom. The house took 1 year to sell when we bought it due to the upstairs layout so hopefully this would be better? We still would have a downstairs cloakroom toilet. But I was wondering - would this devalue the house?

  • Hello - the reconfiguration sounds like a good idea to me. Creating extra master bedroom space is likely to appeal more, and future owners will have the extra space in the bathroom anyway. However, it may be worth getting a few quotes to see the costs of works and also speak to some agents. I'm not sure if a there will be a huge uplift in value here but it may mean that you would sell quicker (should you carry out the works).
