Ensuites are popular because of privacy and proximity. Because ensuite bathrooms are directly connected to bedrooms themselves, they are much more private than bathrooms that are off hallways or kitchens and the like. Parents can have their own bathroom while their kids have theirs, for example. Nowadays, If a house has two bathrooms on the second floor, chances are one of them is an ensuite. And many bungalows have ensuites, too – provided they were built since the 1960s. Also, because they are connected to the bedroom, they are very close by at night and since there are no hallways to walk down there is less likelihood of disturbing other people in the home. Because an ensuite is seen as a selling feature in a home, a large closet in an older home may sometimes be converted into a bathroom to make an ensuite.
