Loft Bathroom Layout Ideas

Many people are converting lofts and attics into bathrooms, which is a great way to improve on an often unused space, as well as adding extra value to your home. Unfortunately, these can be awkwardly-shaped and it’s common to have alcoves and sloped ceilings. Here’s how to navigate around this when installing a new bathroom.

Work With the Shape of the Room
The key thing to keep in mind in bathroom design is to work with what you have. Recognizing the limitations of the room will allow you to be more realistic with what you can and can’t install in the space. Even if your loft has a sloped ceilings, this doesn’t mean it can’t benefit from being converted into a bathroom. However, it’s crucial to ensure that there’s enough ceiling height for furniture such as baths, showers and toilets. Grace Reynolds, design consultant here at Drench says,

“It’s important to try and locate the shower enclosure in the tallest part of the room – the sloped ceilings will usually dictate how large the shower can be as most shower enclosures are between 1900mm to 200mm tall.”

It can also be a good idea to place a bath beneath low ceilings and alcoves as you won’t need this space to stand up fully – this will also make your bathroom feel extra luxurious and cosy! Toilets will need at least 1800mm head height so bear this in mind when taking your measurements before renovating.”
