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.
If you have a small attic to work with, opt for a walk-in shower to increase the sense of space. Consult a good bathroom supplier for advice.
A delicate colour scheme helps soften the angular lines of the room, while portholes add a nautical theme.
Make a feature of exposed beams by keeping the walls and units white. Add a splash of colour to the scheme with an eye-catching bath.
Use the space under the basin to store towels and install a heated towel rack for added comfort on those cold winter mornings.
We love this spacious attic bathroom, complete with statement bath and walk-in shower.
Good insulation is crucial for loft conversions as they get hot in summer and extra chilly in winter. If you're short on windows, install a skylight to bring in lots of fresh air. Mirrors can also help make a room feel light and airy.
A freestanding bath positioned in the middle of the room can transform an attic into a show-stopping space.
Keep things simple with a single basin unit and fresh white accessories.
