There's something so grandiose about walking into a loft, no matter the square footage. The vaulted ceilings, large windows and exposed rooms leave a lasting impression...Bright white lofts have been gracing the blocks of large cities for years and this decor choice hasn't disappeared for a reason! The bright white completely opens and exposes every nook and cranny of the loft and this can definitely be beneficial for a smaller space.
On the other hand, we've definitely seen lofts done in dark hues that are equally successful. Reclaimed wood paneling on the walls ramps up the industrial feel but also tops the look with a dash of cabin in the woods. There are so many different ways to create a successful loft space — just make sure to show some personality.
