Lofts are old factories, workshops and industrial buildings that recently became a fashionable place to live, an icon of design houses suited to the dynamism of contemporary life, perfect homes for creative people who love art, design and open spaces. Today we want to provide you some loft design ideas:
First of all, it’s better to choose a very minimal look, avoiding highly decorated curtains, pastel tones or colorful wallpaper. Lofts are young and dynamic environments, thus avoided to furnish them with rustic, baroque or classical style furniture. On the other hand instead lofts are perfect for a minimalist and modern decor, characterized by metal furniture and by the use of cold colors like white and various shades of gray.
Lofts are usually structured in one large space, which is suggestive but not very functional for everyday life, so it would be better to divide the bedroom from the living area by building a bookcase or a small wall. Another important factor is to study carefully the arrangement of the light points so as to enhance the depth of space that characterizes these kinds of homes.
Remember that it’s not necessary to buy expensive furniture, simple and cheap one will be more than enough, maybe made by recycling old materials, combined with one or two designer furniture.
If you are turning an old industrial factory in a house, another interesting trick is to leave the original walls and ceilings so you will not lose the industrial character of the original building.
In the end, the real secret is to arrange the furniture so as to divide the interior space in a manner which is both original and functional.
