So in the master bedroom of our new house there is a space at one end of the room that is 90cm x 2.5m. Unfortunately it's just too narrow for a shower to fit in there, so we can't do an ensuite. Due to room layout & decorative ceilings we can't increase the width of the space.
However, we could fit a toilet & small vanity + sink, and then a 1m long closet in the rest of the space.
The other option is to just make the whole space a built in robe.
The house has one other bathroom, plus an extra toilet in the laundry.
Interested in thoughts on what you think think would be the best use of the space for increasing overall value?
DH & I are in disagreement on this....

Thoughts - powder room?

Def built in robe. If there is an extra loo in the laundry I see putting another one as a waste of space. Make it a walk in robe, everyone loves those.

If it won't fit a full ensuite, then I'd opt for a larger WIR.

How far is the main bathroom/toilet to your bedroom? Could you post a floor plan?
I think that if the main bathroom/toilet is central to all bedrooms then a built in robe would be a good option, however if the main bathroom/toilet is on the other end of the house then I would put a toilet near your bedroom. When Dh and I looked at houses I preferred the ones that had a toilet close to our bedroom.
Also what are the dimensions of the bed room, could a large wardrobe be built on the wall?

You can fit a shower in a 900w space, you will just need to hunt for a smaller base or tile the base.
I would not put in a powder room. We had a house like this, plus a main bathroom with toilet and a downstairs powder room, the toilet off the bedroom was pretty superfluous and just more cleaning.
If the room already has generous robes and is a good size then an en suite will add the most value.

There's no storage in this house, it's a 1935 queenslander, so not even 1 single cupboard! That's why I was leaning towards a nice big built in robe

I would go for the robe - can never have too much storage.
Also, a stand alone toilet in a bedroom without a full ensuite would be odd.
