Fitting a bathroom into a loft conversion is the ultimate in attic conversion goals.

This will save you from having to go up and down flights of stairs whenever nature calls. And if you only have a small loft conversion? There are some excellent loft bathroom ideas and small Jack and Jill bathroom layouts which could work for your loft conversion design.

How to squeeze a loft bathroom into your loft space?

If you can squeeze a bathroom into your new loft room, you’ll find it a great addition to your loft space. Even if you can only fit an ensuite cloakroom toilet into the area, this will be better than nothing.

As always, our best tip when it comes to loft bathroom ideas is to work with what the space gives you. If this means only including a walk-in shower, a toilet and sink, then great. If you can fit a bath under the eaves, even better.

A great way to create a loft bathroom when there’s limited space available is to zone part of a bedroom with a partial wall and not enclose the bathroom space completely. Speak to your loft conversion specialist about creating privacy for such a bathroom without the use of doors to give your new loft room a wonderful boutique hotel room feel.

There are always ways around your design to ensure that you can fit an ensuite or compact Jack and Jill bathroom to create a habitable space within your loft.

How to create clever Jack and Jill bathroom layouts?

Jack and Jill bathrooms are a great compromise if space is tight within a loft conversion. They’re also ideal if you have more than one room in the loft which needs to access a bathroom, such as adjoining or children’s bedrooms.

The key to including a Jack and Jill bathroom within your loft space is to think about how you’ll use the space. Small Jack and Jill bathroom layouts that work well consider aspects such as storage, access to the rooms and where beds are located within the adjoining bedrooms.

Some Jack and Jill bathrooms will be accessed directly from the rooms either side, with doors opening straight into it. Others will utilise a small corridor to access it. Either way, your loft conversion specialist will advise on the space you have available and how to best work a Jack and Jill bathroom into the design.

How can I optimise small Jack and Jill bathroom layouts?

Again, the most successful loft bathroom ideas will always use as much of the space as is available to them. This could mean that if you have a corridor to access your Jack and Jill bathroom, you can line it with storage. Also, you could opt for an ‘American’ style bathroom, with the washbasin located in the corridor and the shower and toilet in the main bathroom area.

Moreover, remember to choose your colours wisely. Most people opt for neutrals in attic conversions, and white bathrooms are always in style. However, don’t rule out other soft hues such as greys as an option, or bold contrasts such as monochrome colour schemes.

Lastly, don’t think that just because your loft bathroom is small, you can’t include luxury. High-end fixtures and fittings will always go a long way to making a petite bathroom feel plush and luxurious.
