Installing a loft conversion bathroom can be a great way to use your loft conversion space. Whether you want to install an en-suite bathroom to accompany your new master bedroom, or you want to create a large, luxurious bathroom in your loft, this can be a great way to use the newly available space. But there are a range of considerations you will need to take into account, if your new bathroom is going to be both practical and within building regulations. Here at Pinnacle Loft Conversions, we are leading loft conversion professionals. As a result, we have produced this guide to the top considerations for your loft conversion bathroom.
What are the important considerations when installing a loft conversion bathroom?
So, what do you need to consider when installing a loft conversion bathroom? Well, there are several things you will need to bear in mind, including:
- Drainage- you need to be able to drain water and waste away from your bathroom, and this can require extensive plumbing. Especially as the loft is the highest point of the home.
- Electrics- all bathrooms are known as special zones when it comes to electrics. And this means you will need to work with an electrical team that know the regulations, and can make sure your bathroom electricals are up to code.
- Ventilation- bathrooms require a certain amount of ventilation to deal with the steam and reduce the condensation and mould that can appear. You will need to make sure that your loft conversion can support a good sized window or even an extractor fan.
- Structure- a bath in your loft conversion can be incredibly luxurious. But your floor might need to be strengthened to support the weight of the tub, and the weight of the standing water.
