Whether you want to create the en-suite of your dreams, a luxury spa experience, or you simply want to give guests (and moody teens) a space they can call their own - adding a bathroom to your loft is the perfect addition for any home.
However, not all lofts are created equal. Some of you might be expanding the space through a dormer, create wide-open spaces. Others might stick to the existing shape of their roof, giving less space but with more character. Whatever route you go down, here are some of our favourite designs ideas to help inspire lofts of all shapes and sizes…

Let’s start simple. You don’t need fancy fittings to give a classy touch to your new bathroom. This design has been brought to life by a large rooflight - the pitch helping avoid peeping toms - and some gorgeous tiles. The contrast of light and dark really gives that modern touch of class.

Modern not your vibe? Give your new home some rustic comfort by taking inspiration from this bathroom, found within the famous Pig Hotel. Though the main material is wood, they’ve avoided the room feeling too dark by using light pine for the walls. What’s more, as you laze in that large standing tub, you can gaze dreamily out the window.

Speaking of standing tubs, if you really love yours, why not put it in the spotlight? We love the spa feel these homeowners have given their bathroom by lifting their bath onto its very own platform, the tiling keeping a sense of continuity throughout the room. And who could ignore those wooden beams they’ve left in? Reminding us never to overlook the loft’s quirky characteristics.

In fact, if it’s character you’re after, this design is a perfect example of how to inject the most into your space. Inspired by that rustic french aesthetic, this home has made sure to add plenty of those perfect imperfections. Plenty of grain in the wooden fittings, textured wall with matching floors, all contrasting against the perfect white shutters and pitched roof.

White more your thing? We don’t blame you, look how bright and spacious it can help make even the smallest spaces. And with some wooden touches of wood and plenty of houseplants, you can avoid the space feeling clinical.

And it doesn’t have to be just with standing showers that you can achieve this design. The wooden panelling helps make this bath feel sunken into the room while positioning under the skylight stops the space from feeling claustrophobic from the roof’s pitch.

You don’t need a lot of wood to make an impact. These two beams are just what this bathroom needed to break up all that white space, with the grey tiles as a stylish touch. Perhaps this is another example of great french style - don’t think we’ve not spotted the bidet.

Of course, it doesn’t always have to be about timber. For instance, this space added that stylish touch with a copper bathtub. Don’t forget about metallic trends when it comes to your space, they work wonderfully with darker interior design.

Another example of incorporating a metal tub into your room. This homeowner has paired the cooper shade with the red of their exposed brick wall - that pop of colour from the potted plant doesn’t hurt either, though not sure we would trust ourselves not to knock soil into our evening soak.

Alright, time for a wild bit of luxury. If you’ve got the cash to spare, why not go big? Not just a standing bath and walk-in shower, but also a sauna to boot! Now that really is going the extra step. Hey, if it works for the swedes, it could work for you too.

Think you can’t have luxury in a small space? Think again! Just look at this wonderful bath and shower combo. The tiles bring the space to life, while the white walls and tub accentuate all the light from that truly stunning skylight.

Can we tell you a secret? At Resi, we simply love skylights and your loft is the perfect place them. Here’s one of our favourites, designed by our wonderful team. What makes this glazing so special is the way it creates an uninterrupted view of the clouds above. What’s more, with this home sitting in a conservation area, getting this approved was an achievement in itself - nice work, planning team!

Bathrooms don’t have to be locked away. Using a broken plan design, you can give your loft all the benefits of open-plan design, without being forced to watch your loved one on the loo. This is a fantastic example of this design and demonstrates the benefits of such a layout. Because thanks to those huge skylights, there is now plenty of natural light that’s able to pass between bathroom and bedroom. Giving this floor and an even greater sense of space.

However, not everyone has so much space to play with. But even if you’ve got a small room you’re converting, don’t think you can’t inject great style in there. This bathroom demonstraes how much you can pack it when you have a designer by your side who can unlock the potential of the space. Take the bespoke storage unit and how the walk-in shower works with the pitch of the roof. Also, that lovely shade of paint is pretty easy on the eyes too.

Another example of how storage can be created, even in the confines of a smaller bathroom. What’s especially nice about this design is the way they’ve lined the shelves with (very on trend) hexagon tiles. The cork floor is also a nice use of modern trends.
