Lofts in Canada

A loft is a large, single room with few, if any, walls separating the space. Historically artists have especially loved lofts, using the open floor plan to house their living area and workspace. This might have been an economical move decades ago, but today, lofts are among the priciest style of apartment you can rent or purchase.

Lofts have an inherent cool factor in that they are often converted from factory or warehouse spaces. The default decor is industrial chic, with features that include exposed brick walls and ductwork, high ceilings, and large windows that let in an incredible amount of natural light.

New construction may offer “loft-style” living spaces, but true lofts come from those former industrial spaces often found in urban centers.
