Shower room with no toilet

I’m converting my master suite by adding a walk in wardrobe and shower room.

The room is on the other side of the house from the existing bathroom, and so to add a toilet will require a new soil stack.

The house is a renovation project for us which we are planning to sell on once it’s completed, so we need to consider cost v return.

Its a 3 bed semi with an upstairs bathroom - the only toilet in the house.

What do you think? worth adding the toilet, or ok as shower room?

    If you are looking to sell on purchasers would expect a toilet in an ensuite. Could you use this space to enhance your walk in wardrobe arrangement and possibly consider a downstairs toilet as an alternative option?

    A second toilet will always add value to a property. Is there somewhere else you could position a toilet? Maybe under the stairs?

    We have tons of smaller options available at Bathroom Supastore.

    Depends on cost of new soil stack in proportion to the value of the house.

    Are you sure it isn't possible to run a soil pipe under the floor to meet the existing stack - this will depend on distance and how the joists run..? Could be cheaper than an entirely new stack.

    Another option is a macerating loo though they are not ideal.

    I think shower room with loo is preferable to shower only plus walk in wardrobe. Cost allowing.

    Would love a walking wardrobe, but would prefer to have a loo next to the shower. For me, it’s a non negotiable basic, a WW is a luxury I could live without.
