LOVELY LOFT LIVING – BE INSPIRED!!!

LIKE, SHARE, AND COMMENT! I LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR FEEDBACK!

TODAY’S BLOG POST: ALL ABOUT LOFTS!!!

Born and raised in Staten Island, New York, one of my goals was to move to “the city” and live in an authentic brick loft. Now, I am in Atlanta, the “city of the south”, and 23 years later, these classic residential spaces still make me swoon. Take a look and be inspired!

DEFINITION: A large, open floor space over a factory, warehouse, or other commercial or industrial space; such a floor converted into an apartment or artist’s studio; an open space under a roof; an attic or garret.

ORIGINS / HISTORY

Lofts are classic urban living spaces that many times have provocative features – exposed brick, piping, wood, concrete, large glass windows, granite and steel. Lofts are usually built from former industrial buildings. When industrial developments are developed into condominiums instead of apartments, they may be called loft condominiums. Originally popular with artists, they are now highly sought-after by others. Hard” Lofts

HARD LOFTS

What we consider to be a real loft (hard loft) in it’s truest form, which most regard as the only kind of loft, is typically a conversion of an old warehouse or factory industrial building. The term “hard” is derived from the fact that the interior of such space having a harder, more rugged material such as that of concrete construction, exposed brick, heating ducts and, in some cases plumbing pipes as well as original wood posts, beams and floors. Authentic details and atmosphere is everything for a hard loft.

Ceilings are at least ten feet high but are typically higher. Ah, but high ceilings does not a hard loft make. Ceiling height is becoming increasingly more important for loft purchasers, and therefore developers are now building condos with slightly higher ceilings than in the past. The ceiling height is what helps give a hard loft the feeling of having an open concept and spacious living space. Large windows and open floor plans also help to achieve this desired effect.

 

SOFT LOFTS

These newer, modern residential spaces some of the characteristics of a hard loft such as high ceilings, big windows and open concept floor plans, but what makes them “soft” is the absence of visible drywall, lack of exposed ducts and plumbing, carpet in some areas and upscale kitchens or baths. Soft lofts have more in common with traditional condominiums than a true hard loft.
