Loft Bathrooms – design tips

Typically loft bathrooms are incorporated into the pitch of the roof and in line with the staircase.   Ultimately we try to place priority on the bedroom and therefore this limits the size of the shower room/ bathroom. It is important to consider certain aspects when designing a loft shower room in order to make the space feel as large as it possibly can.

Tiling

We suggest using light large tiles to brighten up the space.  The larger the tile the less busy the space appears.  We also suggest going floor to ceiling with the tiles as well as this draws your eye right the way up to the ceiling and accentuates the height of the space.

Recessed shower tray

Having a recessed shower tray within the floor allows your eye to follow all the way up to the wall rather than stopping at a platform shower tray on the floor.  Again this approach works on the principle of reducing clutter and creating a much bigger looking space.

Creating recesses within the walls and within the void of the wall is a great way not only to carve out extra space within the shower room but at the same time keeps the line of the walls clean and avoids bulky shelving projecting into the room.  This is also a nice trick to use to accommodate towel rails.

Having a frameless glass shower screen avoids obstruction to the eye and assists with a minimalist approach.
