Attic Bathrooms

Design Inspiration

Designing bathrooms in attics always creates a challenge due to the restricted headspace. However, by embracing the structure, such as exposed eaves, a sloping ceiling and additional skylights, you can create an interior that is both functional yet visually pleasing. In this blog post, we dive into various strategies for maximising space and utilising every corner effectively deem loft conversions.


Baths are perfect be placed under a sloped ceiling. Sloped ceilings can make designing a bathroom awkward, but if you work with them, they can be the highlight of your space. Unlike a shower you won’t require the head room when placing a bath, so try tucking a freestanding bath under the eaves. In this bathroom, the clients brief was to have a freestanding bath and a shower. We placed the bath underneath the window so clients can enjoy the view of the sky, and transformed an adjacent linen cupboard into a recess shower.

Take advantage of the abundance of natural light that windows in the roof provide, offering up to three times the illumination of a regular vertical window. Elevate your loft conversion by transforming window openings into captivating focal points.

Our designer Kirsten Wain, created a bespoke shower enclosure for the whole back area which instantly made the room feel wider. Consider getting a niche installed in the shower for storage and convenience.

In this project there was not a lot of floor space with high vaulted ceiling so needed to ‘ground’ the design. With wanting to maintain the original architectural features of this Turner style property, we wanted to retain a sympathetic nod to the origins of the architects vision – which we did with the use of Crittal shower, matt black brassware and coloured sanitaryware in grey for the basins and wcs which work amazingly well with the houses original metal window frames.
