Loft apartment: Over 70 inspiring interior design ideas

We are always happy to publish individual articles about great loft apartments. But somehow we noticed that we wanted a good overview of Design ideas on the subject is missing. That is why we are offering you one today. Loft apartments are of course very different. When the industrial buildings serve as the basis for the interior decoration, they are very often quite individual and unique. So one thing can be said for sure: the design of loft apartments gives free rein to creativity. Furthermore, the rough aesthetics always dominate with this type of modern interior design. The open living design and the creative ideas for zoning are another very distinctive characteristic. Let’s take a closer look at them together?

Loft apartments on several floors have many practical advantages

Loft apartment with an emphasis on vertical orientation

Two types of loft apartments are particularly typical. One is vertical alignment. In the second case we have a single, but mostly very wide, floor. In the first variant, the loft apartment is an apartment on two or more floors.

In this case you have the opportunity for a very interesting interplay of openness and protection of privacy. The stairs as transition areas between the different floors are mostly quite transparent. They are often designed in such a way that the boundaries between different floors appear more or less fluid. Due to the clever distribution of private and communal rooms on the different floors, however, there is a completely natural separation and thus the protection of privacy.

Practical tips for zoning

If the loft apartment only has one floor, it is usually very wide. In this case, it depends on the very good distribution of the different zones. You have a lot of leeway for creative solutions. For the whole thing to work out, one would have to consider some practical questions. Probably the most important of these concern the light distribution and once again the protection of privacy. Work and food preparation areas should be closest to natural light sources. This is especially important from a health and safety point of view. No matter what creative partitioning concept you choose, you will find that these practical principles are always guiding principles. Let’s stick with this topic a little longer and look at a few different examples!

And here you can see the clever division of the modern interior design through colors

Designer furniture visually fill the room

A very successful strategy for loft apartments is furnishing them with well-chosen designer furniture. In terms of number and size, they don’t have to be that many. But mostly they visually fill the room through their appearance and the feeling of comfort they give. In the picture below we have a fabulous example as well. The brightest corner in the apartment was assigned to a cozy seating set with comfortable seating furniture upholstered in leather. The large designer sofa is in a slightly darker area. There is a safe atmosphere there, which is often needed for perfect relaxation. We can find more seating on the wide, round upholstered stool. This is located between the two zones and welds them together.

The lofts often have some light areas and some dark areas

Different functional areas

A useful method for distributing the zones in a loft apartment can be in the form of designing various functional areas. We see such an example in the next picture. Here we have a huge media wall on one side, which could serve both for entertainment and to illustrate audiovisual projects. But there are also other smaller, clearly separated work zones within the same room. The storage areas and seating are based on these work zones.

Highlight through color and light

A very popular and widespread strategy for highlighting different zones in their own way is to choose different colors for the design of them. In addition, thanks to different types of lighting, they can be clearly separated from each other. The next picture and many others in the photo gallery for our article show procedures in this style.

In some loft apartments, industrial design takes a back seat

The role of rough aesthetics

The lofts will be housed in former industrial premises. For this reason, dealing with their original aesthetics is a very important factor in achieving individual results. In some cases it fades into the background and only a few small details are reminiscent of the original function of the building. In many cases, the industrial look is transferred to modern designer furniture. This is how you pay tribute to the original function and show inspiration for the topic. At the same time, however, the whole thing looks very comfortable and modern. Finally, we have just as many cases in which we see a contrast between the industrial and other styles. Discover your favorite project among the examples shown below!

Thanks to the lighting, you can also highlight different zones in a loft
