A bathroom in the attic can have its charm. Let's enchant

The attic space for a bathroom installation can be a beautiful start to a story, at the end of which will be a sunny morning ritual or a relaxing bath by candlelight and moonlight. Roof windows then bring other practical advantages, such as the possibility of immediate ventilation and drying of surfaces, which prevents the formation of mold. Plenty of natural light will reduce your energy consumption and at the same time visually ventilate the entire space. But let's admit that the realization of an attic bathroom is one of the more challenging tasks. Sloping ceilings limit us in the arbitrary placement of equipment and any unconsidered decisions can hardly be corrected later. But let's be specific and talk about a few principles and useful tips for a bathroom in the attic.

Bathtub under a sloping ceiling

You can place the bathtub where the angle of the roof slope allows. If you have a roof window, it is ideal if the bathtub is right under it for better moisture ventilation. If you are counting every centimeter in a small bathroom, the Avocado concept will make things easier for you. The Avocado bathtub together with the sink placed above the narrowed part for the feet creates a perfect harmony of shapes, which you will appreciate in everyday use.

In a more spacious bathroom, you can afford a larger corner bathtub NewDay or Gentiana or an asymmetric bathtub LoveStory II. If the slope is too low, you can move the bathtub more into the space. The nickname behind the bathtub will then create an effective storage space for cosmetics, candles or even a glass of champagne.

The generous attic space will gain a fairy-tale charm with a freestanding bathtub, which can stand in the middle of the room as a luxurious dominant feature.

Shower cubicle only where the ceiling height allows

Plan the shower area ideally next to a straight wall with a ceiling height of ideally 2 meters. If the height limits you, we recommend barrier-free shower cubicles from the Walk-In range, which do not have a shower tray, so they save you a few centimeters in height. In addition to a practical drainage channel, you can also consider embedding the shower tray. Choose shower cubicles for atypical spaces using the configurator custom solutions.

Bathtub with shower screen for both bathing and showering

This combination can solve the dilemma for you, whether to opt for a bathtub or a shower cubicle. It ensures full bathing and showering in one, of course, if you do not have enough space for the installation of both a bathtub and a separate shower cubicle. In such a case, we recommend our bathtubs with a shower screen to your attention.

Sink and furniture unify the style

In the wide range of RAVAK sinks, you will surely find the ideal model for your attic bathroom. Space-saving is, for example, a corner sink 10° with a cabinet sloped at the same angle. Thanks to the slight slope, it offers greater comfort when washing, because you do not have to squeeze your shoulder against the wall. Where you do not have walls exactly at a right angle, we recommend choosing a sink on a countertop, which you can easily cut to size as needed. You can also install a stand-alone faucet on the countertop in the place that suits you best. Countertops under the sink and RAVAK bathroom furniture are naturally resistant to moisture. We impregnate the material deeply according to our own recipes so that the furniture can withstand even the most demanding environment, such as a bathroom. As for the mirror, place it near the sink. The bigger, the better, because a large mirror will optically enlarge your attic bathroom. There, where the ceiling slope is the lowest, an ideal place for additional storage spaces, a laundry basket or a front-loading washing machine or dryer is created.

WC and bidet

At the site of installation of a toilet or bidet, the slope should not extend lower than 1 m above the seating area. Wall-hung toilets and bidets are becoming increasingly popular due to their design and practical bathroom maintenance. They are installed using pre-wall installation modules, which ensure safe and solid anchoring. The toilet flushing mechanism is hidden in the wall. If the ceiling in the given place is very low, this part can be separated with plasterboard and a pre-wall installation system designed for plasterboard can be installed in it.

And finally...

The atypical space of the attic is a great basis for creating a cozy and practical bathroom with an emphasis on architecture. It will be particularly suited to a minimalist design with plenty of storage space, which is a prerequisite for functionality, unique style but also easy maintenance. If you are not confident in arranging furniture and sanitary equipment yourself, you can contact professional designers. And as a reminder, the realization of a bathroom in the attic must be carried out according to the principles of the building law.

We wish you success with your project and may your attic bathroom be a daily source of joy for you for many years to come.

The choice of a shower enclosure is also closely related to the selection of the ideal shower tray. It is a suitable solution wherever you cannot or do not want to structurally interfere with the floor, for example, in a panel apartment. Your choice should take into account the expectations and needs of the entire household, for example, if you have small children, bathe pets, occasionally soak laundry, etc. Choose the right shape, material, and method of installation. Then you will be satisfied in the long term and avoid regular floods in your bathroom.
