Do you know what a loft is in terms of a residential building? Sure, you might have a loft space upstairs in your home, like a gathering area. However, some people live in a loft as their entire residential space. What does this mean? A loft is an upper story or elevated area within a building. It is always located directly under the roof. As mentioned before, a loft can be like an attic or an extra storage space homeowners need to access with a ladder. However, loft apartments also exist, which means someone can have an ample, open space converted for a complete kitchen, bathroom, and living space. In most cases, the spaces are transformed from old industrial buildings into residential areas. This unobstructed area often has specific design features, such as high ceilings, a wall of factory-style windows without drapes, and exposed pipes or HVAC systems.
