Lofts come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Traditionally, it is an industrial space transformed into a residential apartment with high ceilings. Most have exposed bricks, metal beams, polished floors, and larger windows. The best thing about lofts is that its open space offers all the room for creativity and design. You can decide where you want to have your living, working, dining, and sleeping spaces. This kind of freedom is not available in apartments where every room is already sort of functionally earmarked. When we talk about small lofts, things can get even more challenging and fun. This also kind of makes lofts one of the favourite spaces for interior architects and designers to design, transform and renovate. Needless to say perfect for DIYers to experiment and design as per their taste and style. If you are among those who are looking for small loft design ideas and inspiration, read on!
