The first step in creating your dream attic bathroom might even be the most interesting bit! Looking at bathroom ideas can be a great way to get your creative juices flowing, so you can create the best bathroom for your taste, budget and style.
In this article, we’ve picked some of our favourite attic bathroom ideas and styles that we could find. Enjoy expanding, designing and decorating your bathroom attic!
The short answer is yes, you can put a bathroom in your attic. As long as you have the right amount of space with the correct planning permission, you can convert your old, cold attic into a modern attic bathroom for the entire family to enjoy.
Take a look through some of these attic bathroom ideas that we love! From making the most out of your space, to simple tips to make your new attic bathroom stand out.
Sometimes you have to be creative with the attic space you’ve been given. Use your sloped roof to your advantage with a stylish, compact shower and skylight. (The use of lighter colours can also make the space look bigger!)
Having to work with a small space doesn’t mean you have to minimise your creativity. Using a bright shower tile, such as this natural emerald green, in conjunction with a skylight can really open the bathroom up to natural light.
If your attic is on the small side, you could consider scrapping the traditional attic bathroom idea and designing a wet room. Renovating your attic to a wet room would give you a desirable spacious shower, whilst also making the space feel modern and minimal.
Here’s a clever idea when it comes to storage and sloped ceilings. When creating a square or rectangle shower block in your attic bathroom, why not use the lost space as a small storage area for towels and soaps? A perfect way to save space and avoid the need for additional storage!
Don’t be afraid of your home showing its age! The use of natural wood rafters can bring a classical, rustic feel to your attic bathroom that your guests (and you!) will love!
The addition of greenery such as plants or green tiles would be a great way of making your bathroom stand out and play on the naturesque style.
Here’s another great use of a home’s architectural elements. If your loft conversion contains beautiful beams, or nice brickwork, such as the two images above, it would be a shame not to make them the centrepiece of your attic bathroom.
A cost-saving way of creating a stylish change to your attic bathroom is using eye-catching wallpaper. Use your sloped wall to your advantage by creating stunning visuals in fairly small spaces.
Don’t be afraid to be bold when decorating your bathroom! We absolutely love what this decorator has done with their great use of wallpaper and gold-plated taps, lights and shower head.
Nothing can make a room look bigger than a well-placed mirror, especially when combined with a roof window to bring in natural light. Placing a large mirror in front of the door or window of your attic bathroom can help the space look much larger than it actually is.
Having a room situated in your attic gives you the perfect opportunity to take advantage of natural sunlight. Having a roof window smartly situated in the middle of your new bathroom can give you that burst of sunlight you cannot achieve with traditional lights.
You can achieve this look using our Opaque PVC roof windows that give you the privacy you need. Designed for highly humid rooms such as bathrooms.
Here’s another great example of using natural light to your advantage! Having these large windows above your bath can give you the best of both worlds with natural light in the day and the opportunity to have relaxing, starry night baths.
The average cost of an attic bathroom conversion can typically start at £15,000 to £20,000, but the price can easily rise if further work is required. Unexpected plumbing jobs and what quality of finish you are wanting can see the cost rise.
If you’re renovating an existing attic bathroom, the cost could be less, and you can reduce the cost by checking where existing plumbing lies to reduce the need for major renovations.
Getting in contact with your local plumber & decorating company can give you a good estimate of how much designing your dream attic bathroom would cost.
