Lofts are hugely popular and are a much sought after property in Toronto. The loft has a romance and charm all on its own. The loft condominium has a look and feel to it that appeals to a lot of people.
Lofts are unique because some of them have exposed brick and pipes in keeping with its industrial roots. You may also have eye-catching floor to ceiling pillars and columns as well as beams from one end to the other. Let’s look at what makes these beautiful Toronto lofts unique by looking at some advantages of living in one.
1. High Ceilings
Unlike a lot of apartments and condos, lofts have much higher ceilings that makes it feel more spacious and airy. By using some imagination, you have a lot of colour options and even lighting when it comes to decorating the place. Darker colours can give the appearance of a lower ceiling if you choose to do this. Using soft lighting, the ceiling could give the illusion of disappearing at night.
2. Natural Light
Lofts tend to be very bright and well-lit as they receive lots of natural light. In addition, the high ceilings help to give the appearance of infinite space when the room is brightly lit. These units tend to have floor to ceiling windows as well, which allows much natural light to pervade your living space. Let’s face it, a place that receives bright natural light makes you feel in a good mood as well.
3. You Define Your Own Rooms
Lofts generally tend to be one big open space, so with a little bit of imagination (or perhaps get help from a friend or interior decorator), you can “make” your own rooms. You can lay down rugs to define your living room space, perhaps put up dividers or partitions to make a smaller “room” or “storage space”. The nice thing is, you have versatility, so if at any time you feel you need a change, you can easily move things around and make it look like a new apartment! The general area tends to be large, so since there may not be physical walls, you can chop and change whenever you please.
4. Installing A Loft Bed
You may need to think this through carefully before committing to it, but having a loft bed can be a unique blessing. This allows you to maximize vertical space. If you have no problem using a ladder, then this offers a great opportunity for some privacy and comfort. Stairs can eat up a fair amount of space, but a ladder can be a real space-saver.
People who come over will envy your living arrangement. There is nothing quite like the look and feel of a loft. With a little imagination, you can transform it into a piece of heaven on earth!
