A bedroom in the attic
These spaces are ideal to locate a bedroom. However, we must bear in mind that the ceilings of the attic can be a problem when distributing our cabinets, side tables and others. In the case of the bedroom, try that the head of the bed always matches the part where the roof is more inclined. Well, this area is difficult to take advantage of otherwise. If we place the bed in this direction we will have the areas with higher ceiling free to place other furniture and to transit.

A desk in the attic
If we want to place a study in the attic we must also take into account the theme of light. The windows in the attic are usually not very large, for this reason, a good location for the desk will be just under one of them. Normally they coincide with the lowest part of the roof, something that will give us an advantage as in the previous case. First, when sitting, we do not need the roof to be higher. Second, we will have more space to place another type of furniture.
The lower part of our attic can be used perfectly by placing custom shelves. We can use shelves if we prefer, but the truth is that custom shelves tend to give better results, because they adapt perfectly to the space. In addition, we can also choose to place a large shelving of work, custom, in a whole wall, thus saving the problems of unevenness of the roof.

Bathrooms in a loft
At the time of placing a bathroom in the attic we also have to take into account the unevenness in the ceiling. If we choose a shower tray, it must be oriented so that the faucet is on the highest part of the roof. If we opt for a bathtub, we will have no problem placing it in the part of the slope.
