    Default Would you prefer a bigger bathroom or master bedroom?

    Hey guys, just want some general opinions as we are currently renovating our 1918 queenslander! Have just gutted our bathroom, and when we reframe the wall that divides the master bedroom and bathroom, we have the option of moving the wall to make the bathroom bigger (it's not tiny but not huge currently) however that would mean the main bedroom would then be made the same size as an average Aussie bedroom (imagine a rental property standard bedroom) or we keep it the same and have a larger bedroom!

    So what would you prefer -

    A - bigger bathroom
    B - bigger bedroom

    Thankyou!!

    I'd vote a bigger bathroom. Sounds odd when I say this but that's where DH and I catch up about our day he baths DD while I'm showering and we chatter away. Most weekdays this is our only chance to chat so for my family I'd love a bigger bathroom.

    Does the bedroom have a WIR? If not then definitely bigger bedroom.
    Probably bigger bedroom anyway, unless the current bathroom is tiny.

    I would work out the size you need for a comfortable bathroom, and leave the rest for the bedroom.

    My bathroom is too small includes zero storage space, so I am biassed there. But if it had room for a cupboard, I would be happy. So it doesn't need to be much bigger, just a little.

    Bedroom depending on if there are any other bathrooms in the house bd how many ppl were living there? (if it's the only bathroom and needs to be shared between 3-4 then maybe bigger bathroom)

    We have a pretty small bedroom but a big bathroom and I love the big bathroom. I'd love more storage in the bedroom but if you have enough storage space and can fit around the bed thats all the bedroom needs. Our bathroom can easily fit bubs highchair and let me dry myself after a shower and that is so much better than our old tiny bathroom where only 1 person could be in the room at one time.

    If your bedroom is big enough to fit your bed, bedside tables, wardrobes and any other essential bedroom furniture with space to walk around then I would have a bigger bathroom. (Is the bathroom an ensuite or just a master bathroom?) If it's just a general master bathroom then I would want all the space I could get for everyone's towels and storage.
