We are building a new house, downstairs will have a wc, upstairs is 2 masterbedrooms, one for us and one for my daughter with en suites, attic rooms also have an ensuite for my son...do i really need an ensuite in our room and a family bathroom which no-one will use? Im thinking of putting a door into the fam bathroom from my bedroom and getting rid of the ensuite so more room for closets....guests will use the downstairs loo or sleeping in one of the kids so use their ensuites if needed...thoughts please?

Your plan sounds logical and makes more use of the space in your bedroom.
How many bedrooms will you have in all? And will they all be normally occupied by your family? Is it three bedrooms in total, all with ensuites? Two on the first floor and one in the attic? And where would the family bathroom be?
One of our 3 bedrooms has an ensuite but we use the other one as it's a better space and it's only about 12 more steps to get into the main bathroom. It's a selling point but I find them a bit unecessary when there are just two of you. Now if you still have 'dependents' livign with you that's a different matter!
Yes it works very well...when I did ours I put a door off the landing and a door off the bedroom.It can be used as a bathroom en-suite or a master bathroom.It will be larger than the average bathroom as you need to factor in for 2 doors.

There will be 2 master bedrooms 1st floor and the attic rooms,one side for my sons gaming/study, other his bedroom. So its classed as 4 beds..i cant attach the drawing on here can i?
It does make sense..but im thinking do i put a door in from the landing too? Keep thst locked unless we have guests?

Ryzen this is what i thought! But wasnt sure if it would look weird with 2 doors..maybe could get a slide door from our room to save space?

It all looks good..and works very well.
If you have teenage children, whether boy or girl, you need en suites! Otherwise you will spend hours waiting to use the family bathroom! Been there! Done that! Bought a house with en suites!
As it's a new build I'd incorporate a pocket door from your bedroom in to the bathroom - better than a traditional slide door.

Carolegif..yes my daughter will have her own and so will my son in attic
if every bedroom has a bathroom there is no need for family bathroom...if one or more bedrooms have no bathroom you will need a family bathroom
I had the landing door opening into the bathroom..as normal..and the other opening into the bedroom.
I suppose it depends if your ensuites will have bathing/showering facilities or just a loo
woofy....you still need a family bathroom to bath the dog :-)
I suppose you also need to think about how often you have guests.

Thanks everyone..we rarely have people sleep over, but the kids probably will when they get a bit older, the ensuites will have showers, so keeping thw main bathroom with bath shower etc seems a better option, with 2 doors and us get rid of the ensuite..there is also a nice big window in the family one,im not keen on hubby doing his business in my bedroom! *Chortlesplutters*..
Sorry, Pink; but why are you asking us what you need? You know better than us.
The term is a Jack and Jill bathroom for one that has 2 ways in
