Compared to other interior styles, the loft is spectacular and original. When buying real estate, you can often find old industrial buildings converted into modern apartments with loft-style decoration.
It should be noted that such options are in great demand among potential buyers, because they are characterized by a special personality and affordability in terms of cost.
In order to implement a strict and effective style in your premises, you don’t need to buy a new property at all, any competent designer will help you develop an individual project.
Loft-style decoration first appeared in the transformation of old production and storage facilities. However, nothing prevents you from realizing your ideas in your own private house.
Of course, there are certain difficulties in this, since often suburban cottages are built of wood, and this material cannot be associated with this style.
The most acceptable material for decoration in the loft style is metal. Recently, the tendency to use not only wood as a finishing material, but also steel with a special coating under the beam, has been becoming increasingly apparent.
This option provides the required practicality and durability. Thus, this choice combines good performance and excellent aesthetics.
Unfortunately, in harsh Russian climatic conditions, a house with a flat roof is not very convenient, so you need to search for other modifications to recreate the industrial style.
The best option is to use a metal coating with cool color shades. Natural tiles are unlikely to be suitable for a loft, so it is better to opt for corrugated board.
The modern market for roofing materials offers many new species designed for our climate.
For example, special metal coatings with polymer processing. At the same time, they are adapted to any architectural elements: roofing, facade decoration, etc.
One of the features of the loft is the huge windows. Using large-format plastic or glass windows is very expensive, so polycarbonate can partially solve this problem.
For example, the use of a profiled polycarbonate sheet that looks like a corrugated board. This material is especially appreciated for its high resistance to ultraviolet and weather conditions, as well as excellent light transmission and reliability.
A unique combination of decay and novelty
Another hallmark of the loft is the ability to connect the impossible, a combination of retro objects with futuristic elements.
Under the "old" elements in the loft refers to the raw surface of the walls and floors that are left open, and the novelty is created by special finishes, decorative elements and appliances.
