Installing a new bathroom in your loft home extension can be a practical and effective decision. But how can you make sure that this bathroom is designed in a practical and effective way? Well, here at Pinnacle Loft Conversions, we are leading loft conversion professionals. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about designing an effective loft bathroom.
What are the considerations for designing an effective loft bathroom?
Designing an effective loft bathroom can mean considering a number of factors. These include:
- Sloping ceilings- if your loft conversion will have sloping ceilings, these will need to be taken into account as part of the design process. A bathroom can easily be deigned around these slopes and you can still add everything you need to the space, when the layout is considered during the construction.
- Floor space– if you are making an ensuite bathroom in the loft, or simply a small bathroom, the floor space will be an important factor. You need a certain amount of floor space between fixtures, legally, and you can help to maximize this free space by using slimline furniture and fittings.
What are the advantages of a loft bathroom?
There are a number of advantages and benefits to installing a bathroom in your loft extension. These advantages include:
- Increasing the number of bathrooms– if your home only has one bathroom, adding a second can be both practical and valuable. No longer will there be a queue for the bathroom in the morning with multiple bathrooms to choose from. This is also a great way to boost property value too.
- Good use of space- a bathroom as part of a loft extension, or for the whole space, can be a great use of the new usable space available. This space would otherwise be wasted, or used for storage, but adding another bathroom can be very practical.
