The most common type of loft. Sloped ceilings of the loft create a cosy space that’s ideal for a child bedroom, the little ones will also have no trouble walking around under a chalet style roof. Rooftop bedrooms are also loved by teenagers, who this way gain their own independent space and privacy. Loft bedrooms with an ensuite create a standalone additional space, either for unexpected family guests or grandparents while staying for the night to watch the kids. It is preferable to, if possible, locate the bathroom directly above the bathroom of the lower floor – this makes all plumbing easier.
