25 Industrial Warehouse Loft Apartments We Love

flashdance loft apartment

I remember the first time I saw Flashdance, and I remember exactly what stood out to me. It wasn’t Jennifer Beal’s legendary shower dance scene, it was her insanely cool industrial loft apartment in New York City. It was the start of my lifelong obsession with the classic loft apartment, which I’ve held on to my whole life! I just love the openness, the exposed beams, brick, granite and pipes. There’s something so romantic and cool about living in one of these kinds of lofts.

Restored lofts have become extremely trendy over the last few decades, and if you want one in a major city, you can expect to pay a great deal of money, especially if the loft is in a district that’s been gentrified. There are still some industrial areas in cities that have yet to be taken over by loft-coveting city dwellers, and those ones generally require huge amounts of renovations, but that would be the closest you could come to having your very own Flashdance loft.

I’ve collected a ton of images from around the web of my favorite industrial warehouse loft apartments, so feel free to covet them along with me!

Some tips for decorating a home in a modern theme is to use metallic elements with clean lines. Modern themes are simple in style which means that other things can fit in really well and complement the style. For example, using black colored furniture or black photo frames on pictures is one way to add a modern touch without buying a special item.

Furniture and frames can even be painted black to fit in with the theme. Using silver, gold, or chrome accents also gives black a modern feel with stylish accessories. Using a bed with a desk on a metal frame adds a contemporary  feel to a place. buying metal chairs, tables, and trinket boxes can help complete the look when decorating.

Living in a Barn

Living In A Barn

Ever since I was a child I’ve always been amazed by barns, so simple from the outside yet the complex beautifully exposed joinery of the timber frame in. Each barn with it’s own unique characteristics brought forth by the idiosyncrasies of the builders own techniques and choice, whether there was an option or not, of the wood used; hand hewn old Douglas fir, straight as an arrow Maple ridge beams, hand milled Red Wood side boards… if you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for barns.

Living In A Barn 17

This is why I’ve always dreamed of living in a one. It pains me to see so many of our beautiful barns across the country, and world for the matter, being tore down due to lack of upkeep or for some highrise or subdivision to be build it it’s place. That is why I am making it my 10 year goal to find a nice big barn in rough shape that is destined for the reclaimed wood pile, and convert it into an amazing rustic-modern living space with a loft and bright open space to spend the rest of my days in with family and friends. Hopefully passing it on through family generations, ensuring it carries on it’s legacy.

Relaxing Loft Seating

Do you have a loft in your house that is currently filled with clutter? Why not put that clutter where it belongs, and create your very own, private, stress-free sanctuary! Leave your worries at the front door, and transform your useless area into a Zen loft.

Zen is a Japanese term, which means a school of Mahayana Buddhism emphasizing the value of meditation. Another way to think of Zen is a total state of focus, that incorporates you to relax your body and mind. Creating your loft into a Zen get-a-way will be as easy as 1, 2, and 3! You will want to find a simple seating arrangement that matches your style. Make sure the furniture is simple, and not over the top.
