She adds that "having negative space surrounding the tub gives more emphasis to it as the pièce de résistance of the room.

Built‐ins and wall‐mounted lights are great choices in supertight spaces. An attic conversion doesn't have to have a country look. This space by Catalin David shows that an attic bedroom can easily take a contemporary turn. The addition of skylights makes the space feel less cramped.

To make the most of the small space bedside lighting is wall mounted and under‐the‐bed baskets offer extra storage.
