What is a loft space? It's a term that has changed a little bit over the years. Traditionally it's an open space, in an upper floor such as an attic, usually accessed by a ladder. We now have a broader sense of loft spaces accessed by stairs, but the idea is to maintain an open area overlooking another area - often times a balcony look will be incorporated. One of my first apartments was a loft idea where the bedroom was looking down over the main living area. This is a great idea for small spaces and is very popular now.
Often with high ceilings and lots of natural light, loft spaces are a very attractive, urban and downtown idea. Keep in mind they are quite open, there is no door to close behind you if you need privacy.
Here are some very nifty loft ideas!
