Whether you’re hoping for a look that’s chic and sleek, authentic industrial, fun and funky, vintage historic or delightfully Bohemian, we have ideas to dream on for your loft decor! Loft living is its very own life style.
Mix and Match Your Materials
Use clever combinations of unique materials. Exposed brick. Polished and stained cement. Reclaimed wood. Stone such as granite or quartz. Stained or fused glass. Pairing colors, finishes, and textures can add dimension, visual interest, and even define room spaces.
Celebrate the High Ceilings and Expansive Windows
The volume created by the soaring spaces of many lofts offers tremendous advantages. Loft homes provide a fabulous canvas filled with volume. Imagine ceiling color or other finishes. Dream on built-ins. Shop options for sophisticated lighting features including recessed fixtures, pendants, hanging light boxes, and wall sconces. You might want to incorporate gorgeous ceiling beams, coffered ceiling features, or even tin tiles.
Loft homes often feature expansive windows through which lots of natural light flows into your floor plan. If you’re hoping for blinds, cellular or Roman shades, or shutters, consider motorized options with remote controls for those windows that reach the ceiling. If you’re thinking about decorative textile treatments, there are a range of options from light and airy sheers to moody and even dramatic draperies.
Unique Architectural Accents and Features, the Possibilities Abound
Historic lofts are greatly loved for their unique architectural accents and features. These may be structural, and in place, or added in the course of home design and development. Have some fun with period accents – antique and truly vintage, modern, or retro. Does your home have historic doors? A lobby area perfect for historic pictures or plaques and other markers. Is it an old schoolhouse with the original classroom clocks. Perhaps your loft home emerged from a remastered garage with the old bell-ringer?
Skylights and Rooftop Decks
Does your loft has a fabulous skylight? Imagine an interior four seasons style sun room enclosed in a glass surround. Have you considered a window seat with a view to the city streetscape or skyline?
Unique spaces that extend the living experience from the interior of the home to the exterior surround are yet another popular aspect of loft home living. How about a rooftop deck or balcony perfectly developed for sunset dinners? Maybe a courtyard style patio just right for relaxation, fresh air, fun conversation, or time with your favorite book?
The Open Floor Plans are Amazing
Lofts are known for their open floor plan designs. The very nature of these homes allows for the creation of a living experience like no other. Let your lifestyle dreams guide the placement of everything from practical home furnishings to built-ins and decorative accessories. Enjoy seating with a view to the windows. A spot for your arts and crafts? Your very own library nook? Develop ideas for a movie room with a pull down screen, or a music room with its own Jukebox. Create the perfect kitchen and dining space for gourmet dinners with family and friends. Are you ready to hang a hammock?
Add a Splash of Color
Look to an accent wall, your cabinets, your polished cement floors, and even your staircase. Lofts tend to be individualistic homes, each one unique to the community in which it’s located, and the owner to which it belongs. Gather your paint, stain, and fabric samples, and have some fun! Just be sure to check your color palette in both natural light and within the home. You want to be sure you’re making important color choices with the best representation of those – individually and as a collection.

Atlanta Lofts are as wonderfully diverse as the city itself! Authentic loft homes are often built from the structures once the work sites of tradespeople including tailors, blacksmiths, carpenters, factory workers, warehouse and munitions depot laborers. Many of these communities are now part of the National Register of Historic Places. These homes have many of the features considered synonymous with loft living: an industrial feeling about the structure and space, open floor plans, over sized windows, exposed brick walls and duct work, soaring ceilings, cement floors, steel windows and even stair casings! Roof top decks and gardens are a popular feature among loft developments and some include amenities similar to those of other Atlanta condominium developments including fitness gyms and swimming pools!
Here are a few you might enjoy…
Soft Lofts and Loftominiums
Soft lofts and loftominiums often share in the exterior architectural design of authentic loft homes and include brick, cement and steel among the construction materials. These homes also often include the contemporary polished interiors more typically found in modern condominium development including duct work and plumbing lines neatly tucked behind finished sheet rock walls!
Castleberry Hill Loft District
Castleberry Hill is Atlanta’s fabulous loft district located on the southwestern edge of the Atlanta Central Business District and convenient to Philips Arena, the Georgia Dome and the Heart of everything Atlanta! In fact, the idea of loft living has become so popular that loft communities have sprung up all over the Greater Metro Atlanta area!
Castleberry Hill remains the most famous Atlanta loft locale, but home buyers searching for just the right loft home will find that Atlanta loft developments are also popular in areas from Buckhead to Sandy Springs, from Brookhaven to Roswell, from Virginia Highland to Chamblee’s Old Antique Row and Atlanta’s most popular parks: Candler, Inman, Grant and Piedmont.
