New living trends for the top floor

Penthouses always have a very special flair. Large roof windows flood the apartment with plenty of light and allow a view of the stars at night. In most cases, bedrooms and living rooms are accommodated in the attic. But why not simply move the kitchen and bathroom to the most exclusive of all floors?

Nowhere else can open, spacious living be combined with a relaxed feel-good atmosphere as skillfully as in the attic. Inclined ceilings convey a sophisticated architecture, open roof beams look exclusive and romantic. Oversized windows, such as those manufactured by the Sunshine company from Stadtlohn, ensure light-flooded rooms with an open-air character.

Usually living rooms and bedrooms are laid under the sloping roof to make the most efficient use of the living space. But why shouldn’t all these advantages also apply to the kitchen and bathroom? Contemporary furniture and technology provide for almost infinite variation possibilities, whereby roof slopes can also be excellently exploited.

Unconventional living (t)rooms

If you want to design your living space refreshingly exclusive and individual instead of following outdated trends, you should think about giving priority to the kitchen and bathroom rooms when developing the attic. The slanted walls and large-format windows offer more than just visual advantages.

Moisture generated during cooking can be quickly and easily ventilated.

An open room concept offers enough space for comfortable cooking and cosy dining at a large table.

Freestanding kitchen units and storage areas at body height have long since outstripped conventional kitchen units and hard-to-reach wall units. Thanks to modern kitchen technology, there are no limits to spatial planning here.

And also the bathroom can be realized excellently under sloping roof surfaces. As in the kitchen, air humidity can be dissipated directly through the slanted windows, ensuring an optimum indoor climate at all times. Whether bathtub or wet cell: sophisticated furnishing concepts leave nothing to be desired in the design of the wellness landscape. Bedrooms and living rooms can thus also be accommodated in the larger storeys.
