Bathroom suites for a loft conversion

A loft conversion is a costly business, anywhere between £20,000 and £60,000 in fact according to the Household Quotes website. This, of course, depend on the type of conversion and the size of the space. Adding a bathroom could raise this cost further, as you might expect, but there is an upside – the resale value of your home could increase to 20% and over. So if you are looking to increase the value of your property before selling, a well-done conversion could be a great investment.

Apart from making sure you get the right windows, ventilation etc. you will also need to be very space-conscious – no matter how large the area is.

Can you put a bath in a loft conversion?

In short, yes. Provided that the conversion itself is done properly in terms of structural strength, and there is enough room for a bath then yes absolutely. There are combined shower and bath units that can be purchased too for the best of both worlds.

  • Shower bath suites. When buying a bath, or a bath and shower combination, for a loft conversion you don’t just need to think of available space, you need to think about shapes too. For a better idea of what is meant by that, take a look at these shower bath suites and keep in mind the size and shape of the conversion space too.

Of course you could always opt for a shower unit instead, so what are your options there? There are many reasons for choosing a shower over a shower and bath suite for a bathroom suite in the loft. One of these reasons could be simply to release as much as the room space as possible for other bathroom items.

  • Reduced height shower suites. The showers listed on this shower suite page here on Bath Shack are perfect for loft conversions because they are reduced height units, and there are height differences between the units too to give more options in terms of available headspace in your loft conversion.
