Sophisticated Loft Design Ideas

Lofts are what designers dream of on a nightly basis. They are spacious, fun to decorate, and they typically have an open floor plan which is always a top favorite. If you have been considering the thought of owning a loft or you already own one, here are a few sophisticated loft design ideas that we are currently obsessed with.

Utilize the entire space

Do not be afraid to fill the space with pieces that bring its core essence to the forefront of the home. The idea is to have the home feel as personal as possible even though lofts are extremely contemporary.

Loft living is all about utilizing the entire space. The concept itself comes from the idea of having an open space that has all of your necessary pieces.  You want to use the entire space to its maximum potential. Doing so will ensure the space comes to life and every room works to its full potential.

Oversized Artwork

There’s just something very appealing and intricate to look at when you have oversized artwork displayed throughout the home. It seems to bring any space back to life while having that personalized touch that speaks about the homeowner and their personal style.

Oversized artwork is one of the best ways to decorate your loft and bring personality to it. There’s just something so genuine and fun about having art that speaks to you and the person you are. Consider having duplicates of the same artwork to have that seamless blend throughout.

Industrial Décor

The beauty of industrial styling is how easy it is to incorporate any other decorative style. This is mainly do to the concept that industrial styling is a free flowing format. Therefore, the options are truly endless.

An industrial style is a perfect way to define, a space in a loft setting. There’s something very cool about this decorating style that is very fitting with the aesthetics a loft has. Use darker rustic hues for the perfect pairing contrast.

Minimalist Approach

The idea of a minimal decor style is to have all your necessities without all of the unneeded clutter. Doing so will allow the space to make the bold statement its intended to make on its very own.

A minimalist approach is perfect when you have a large space that needs to feel open and airy yet there have essentials incorporated. We love a minimalist approach for a loft because it allows the home to come to life with the architecture instead of with multiple different furniture pieces.

Dark & Masculine

Masculine decor is notorious for being simple yet striking. The key is having dark pieces that make a statement while keeping the rest of the decor simple enough in the room.

Masculine décor is commonly known for the use of darker hues, and warm wood tones which is why it works so well in a loft setting. Add dark hues of wood as the flooring and keep the rest of the décor simple with pieces that scream masculine yet in a softer appeal.

Don’t Forget Color

Color can be incorporated in multiple different ways including colorful furniture. Its one of the easiest way of getting color into your decor without rearranging your space. Consider a colorful sofa for a beautiful contrast.

Color is one of the best ways to bring personality to any setting, especially to a loft because it there are two levels of the home, therefore, you can change color or even mix and match them to create that personalized look. Additionally, add bits of bold hues where they are least expected such as the kitchen, powder room, and/or a foyer.

Colorful Lounge

If you don’t want to pair your living room with lounge piece consider using a corner as a lounge space instead. Doing so allows you to have that relaxing corner that has transformed into something useful thanks to your new decorating pieces. 

Lofts have big open living rooms which plays a huge role in the way your décor is laid out. We recommend a colorful lounge with a fun sofa and easy seating. The idea is to use simple cushion seats instead of chairs for that lounge feel that brings the space that classic “hippie” vibe.

Window Focus

Whether your large windows are in your bedroom or in the living room the idea is to have them become the main focus of the space. Therefore, you want all of your decor to be facing in that direction. Consider leaving the windows bare or adding drapes for the perfect display while still having some sort of privacy.

Having large windows is typically part of a loft design which is why having mainly window focused decorating style is quite beneficial it allows the space to shine on its very own. The idea is to allow the windows to become a main focus in the home.

Bring on the Accessories

Traditionally accessories are what make a space feel like home as they help personalize the area. The key is having items that are personal yet useful. The more useful the accessories are the grander effect they will have in the room.

Accessories are needed in any decorative setting because they add personality and texture. Add similar accessories throughout for a beautiful display of cohesive pieces. Consider using neutral accessories that come together even in the most unique of settings.

Defining Rug

A rug allows any space to have separation. So much so that you can use different color rugs to separate different spaces that seem to somehow blend together. Consider breaking down the room by having two or more rugs added in.

Creating separation in a loft can be difficult, but a rug could be the perfect defining element. The defining element will break down the openness of the space will give every area individuality. Keep the area focused on its designated purpose.
