Attic bathrooms – 10 of the best

10 images

Looking for an inventive way to make effective use of a loft conversion? An attic bathroom will maximise this tricky space – large or small – transforming your new room into a show-stopping area.

Tucked away in the roof, an attic bathroom will make a quiet retreat from everyday life and, with the right finishing touches, will become a warm and welcoming place to escape to after a busy day.

Make the most of the unique shape of your attic by working with the original features: Exposed beams, a sloping ceiling and extra skylights can all create a beautiful attic bathroom to relax in.

Or, you can create something special from scratch, adding in your own accessories and features to turn a plain attic into a light and bright modern costal theme, or a cute and cosy vintage bathroom, suitable for any rustic cottage.

Work with the natural architecture of your attic, choosing a shower and clever storage solutions for smaller areas. Well-placed mirrors will also create the illusion of a much larger bathroom, lending a light and airy feeling, even to cramped attic spaces. Add extra features to larger rooms, such as a freestanding bath or a heated towel rack to add a luxurious touch to your new attic bathroom.

Choose white walls and delicate colour schemes to open up an attic bathroom, then opt for warm wood flooring and make a bold statement with a flash of bright colour, or a nautical theme, to make the room your own.
