Modern Staircases

loft-style apartments clearly need a staircase. What we love is that they’re built with the intent of being modern so they don’t have boring staircases they have spectacular railings and beautifully designed stairs.

In a loft-style apartment, the stairs can be their own art, you just have to worry about decorating around them.

Industrial Vibes

A loft-style apartment is a perfect representation of everything we want to see in an industrial-type living space. This has been recreated in other living spaces but it truly thrives in the loft-style apartment.

Spacious Living Areas

Since your space is divided into two levels, the living area in a loft opens up and allows you to do whatever you want with it. This is a great opportunity for designing a spacious living area.

A loft-style apartment is charming and unique and a perfect spot to make wholly your own.

A loft-style apartment is definitely on our bucket list of ‘places we want to live’.  loft-style apartments exude creativity and style, and we want in on that. Next step: Decorating.
