Get Creative When Using Up Your Space
Just because your ceiling may be a little lower in certain areas, doesn’t mean you can’t use it! Use your creativity and place lower furniture like a chest of drawers, tables and TVs. You can even use this type of space for a work desk and a mini office with low profile storage units and bookcases. A sofa can also fit under the eaves, as well as a bed.
Promote Natural Sunlight
One of the nicest things about a loft space is the amount of beautiful natural light. Decorate your loft with a lighter color pallet to enhance the natural light even more, and keep things positive, airy, and fresh.

Choose the Right Type of Flooring
With loft spaces noise can sometimes be an issue so it is super important to choose the right type of flooring. Noise easily travels through the floor, so choosing a carpet floor is a smart way to insulate noise coming from the floors below. You can also simply lay thick rugs for a similar effect.

Install Good Blinds
Loft spaces receive loads of natural sunlight, so it’s important to have good blinds to keep out the heat during the summer months, as well as provide privacy and prevent all your furniture and carpeting from fading from the sun. Roller blinds, roman blinds, or black out shades work perfectly and don’t take up too much wall space.
