Loft home style

The term Loft is generally used to describe an upper storey or attic in a building, in other words the space directly under the roof. A loft apartment, on the other hand, refers to a large adaptable open space, often a former industrial building or other type of space converted for residential use. This freedom in terms of design and adaptability has resulted in some very beautiful and amazing loft designs.

The idea of lofts has been around forever it seems but that is with good reason. Lofts are special in feel and diversified in ways you can use them.

Ideas for Creating “Rooms” for the Loft
The first thing you need to do is to make right division of the space into living area, dining area, sleeping area and any other divisions you wish to have. Once this is done, use the furniture pieces like tables or book cases to mark the borders for dissimilar areas. Fabric screens hanged from the ceiling or room dividers can also help you out to get the feel of separate “rooms” within the loft apartment.
