An attic bathroom under a sloped ceiling? Discover our advice and ideas

Does your bathroom have a sloped ceiling, or would you like to create one in the attic? Designing a bathroom under a sloping roof is a challenge, but the result will definitely be cosy! Imagine taking a shower or a bath under the beautiful stars. A skylight also provides plenty of light, which is very useful when getting ready in the morning.

In this article, we give you tips and ideas for designing your bathroom under a slanted ceiling in an optimal and aesthetic way.

What do you need to pay attention to?

In particular, arranging a small bathroom with sloped ceiling can seem like a difficult, almost impossible task, but it certainly isn't! The most important thing to pay attention to is the height of the space under the slanted ceiling. Installing a shower or bathroom cabinet requires a height of at least two metres. Read further below and discover the possible layouts for a bathroom with a sloped ceiling.

A sloped ceiling shower

A shower under a sloped ceiling or wall is certainly possible; just keep in mind a height of two metres and position the shower head at the highest point. The most suitable shower arrangement is the walk-in shower with shower enclosure. You place this parallel to the sloping wall.

A shower cabin is also possible if the sloping roof is high enough. The photo below shows a bathroom under a sloping roof with a walk-in shower, but a shower cabin is also possible here.

Bathroom vanity under a sloped ceiling

You can also place the bathroom vanity under a sloped ceiling, and if you have enough space, you can even go for a double washbasin. You can also choose an extra wide bathroom cabinet that you can place completely under the sloped wall to create extra storage space. Make sure that the washbasin or washbowl is positioned so that you can stand at it. So measure everything carefully beforehand.

A bathtub in the attic

The space right under the sloped roof is the ideal place for the bath. A freestanding, semi-freestanding or built-in bath, all are usually possible. So here you can choose the bath of your dreams. With a skylight above the bath, you complete your bathroom and can enjoy quality or me time under the stars.
