Transforming former industrial spaces into living areas has been happening for several decades now. Loft spaces are desirable because of their airy nature as well as for being able to be configured in a number of different ways. And lofts aren’t just of the exposed-brick, 18-foot-high ceiling variety. Many modern houses contain a loft space as part of the design; these are often used as makeshift offices, sitting areas or extensions of bedrooms.
The right sets of curtains can demarcate an urban loft space more quickly and efficiently than constructing a series of false walls that may simply need to be removed and rebuilt each time the loft’s inhabitants want to change the way they live. Here are some ideas, courtesy of Houzz.com, for choosing curtains for loft spaces:
For that 2nd-story loft bedroom that partially opens onto a living space onto the floor below, consider hanging a sturdy wire across the opening and suspending some Sheer Curtains via rings. This will have the effect of adding privacy when needed without having to close off the space to any available light.
A modern cabin might consist of simply one room with a vaulted, sloped ceiling – and plenty of windows to enjoy the great outdoors from the comfort of home. Mounting a curtain rod along the ceiling and hanging some Blackout Curtains could be all that’s needed to separate the sleeping quarters from the sitting area.
Some beach houses have only enough space in them for enjoying meals, conversation and cozy sleeping quarters – including bedrooms that also have loft spaces accessible by ladders. Space at the beach after all, is at a premium, which can result in the doubling up of sleeping assignments. To make best use of the loft space, install a set of curtains underneath it. That way, people can hang clothes and store suitcases and other items without being reminded of the clutter in an already cramped room.
