  • The loft should be as much space.Therefore, if the bathroom in your apartment is not large, it is better to combine it with a toilet.Generally, the interior walls in the loft should be avoided, it should be open.Even the shower.The only thing that is allowed - absolutely transparent glass partitions.
  • Loft - is virtually the only style in which welcome defects in the finishing of surfaces.Cracked plaster, crumbling brickwork, neobstrugannye wooden beams, metal parts, untouched by rust - all this will be very out of place.But remember that today, a loft - it is only a pastiche, so you need to choose artificially aged materials, and do not install in his own apartment are old, unreliable designs.
