Loft Apartment: Over 70 Inspiring Interior Design Ideas

We publish again and again like individual articles about great loft apartments. But somehow we realized that we liked a good overview of Design ideas on this topic is missing. That’s why we offer you one today. Of course loft apartments are very different. When industrial buildings serve as the basis for interior design, they are often quite individual and unique. So one thing can be said with certainty: the design of loft apartments gives the creativity free rein. Furthermore, this style of modern interior design always dominates the rough aesthetics. The open design and the creative ideas for zoning are another very distinctive characteristic. Do we want to take a close look at them?

Loft apartments on several floors have many practical advantages

Loft apartment with accent on the vertical orientation

Particularly typical are two types of loft apartments. Some have a vertical orientation. In the second case we have a single, but usually very broad floor. In the first variant, the loft apartment represents an apartment on two or more floors.


In this case you have the opportunity for a very interesting interplay of openness and privacy. The stairs as transition areas between the different floors are mostly quite transparent. Often they are designed to make the boundaries between different floors more or less fluent. However, the clever distribution of private and communal spaces on the different floors leads to a very natural separation and thus to the protection of privacy.

Practical tips for zoning

If the loft apartment has only 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 room for creative solutions. In order for this to work, some practical questions should be considered. The most important of these concern the distribution of light and once again the protection of privacy. The areas for work and food preparation should be closest to the natural light sources. This is especially important from the point of view of health and safety. No matter what creative division you choose, you will find that these practical principles are always of paramount importance. Let’s stay with this topic a bit and look at a few different examples!

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

Designer furniture visually fill the room

A very successful strategy for loft apartments is the establishment of well-chosen designer furniture. They would not have to be that many in number and size. But mostly they visually fill the room by their appearance and the sense of comfort they give. In the picture below, we have a fabulous example as well. A cozy seating set with comfortable leather upholstered seating has been allocated the brightest corner in the apartment. The large designer sofa lies in a slightly darker zone. There is a feeling of well-being that is often needed for perfect relaxation. Other seating is found on the wide round upholstered stool. This is located between the two zones and welds them together.

The lofts often have some bright and some dark zones

Various functional areas

A sensible method for distributing the zones in a loft apartment can take the form of designing various functional areas. Such an example we see in the next picture. Here, on the one hand, we have a vast media wall that could serve as both entertainment and visualization of audiovisual projects. But there are also other smaller, clearly separated workspaces within the same space. The storage areas and the seating areas are oriented towards these working zones.

Highlighted by color and light

A very popular and widespread strategy for highlighting different zones in their peculiarity is the selection of different colors for the design of these. In addition, thanks to various types of lighting, they can be clearly separated. The next picture and many others in the photo gallery for our article show procedures in this style.

In some loft apartments, the industrial design is in the background

The role of rough aesthetics

The lofts are 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 takes a back seat and only a few small details are reminiscent of the original function of the building. In many cases, the industrial appeal is transferred to modern designer furniture. So you pay tribute to the original function and show inspiration for this topic. At the same time, the whole thing looks very comfortable and modern. After all, we have just as many cases in which we see a contrast between the industrial and other styles.
