A loft apartment is a large adaptable open space, often a former industrial building or other type of space converted for residential use. By incorporating lofts, upper-level walkways, mezzanines and interior balconies you can add additional functional space. Most of the time the loft spaces are used for bedrooms, offices, libraries, reading rooms etc. The common ways of connecting the two levels are by ladder (which is not easy to use), typical staircase (which are easy to use, but take up more space) or spiral staircase (our favorite). The biggest challenge of loft apartment decorating is dividing the space for different uses and creating private areas in a totally open space, but on the other hand loft apartments look very urban, bohemian and fresh. It's good to be playful with interior design and creating loft does just that.
Natural light will immediately make a room appear larger, but if your room doesn't have windows, or has fairly small windows, there are other things you can do. You can make a room seem larger by drawing people's gaze upwards, as when the eye moves vertically, rather than horizontally, rooms seem larger. Try placing light fittings higher up on your walls, or perhaps try adding some hanging lights from your ceiling.Recessed lighting can have a similar effect, with lights set into the ceiling or wall. These lights won't take up any additional space in your room, but will make it feel brighter and more open.
