One of the most difficult things about living in a loft is trying to create separation between your bedroom, kitchen, dining room, living room, etc. – since they’re generally all part of one big room. Here are my top tips for creating separation and differentiation between areas of your loft:
- Try a Screen: Screens are a great way to separate spaces and are very versatile since they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. In addition to their functionality, they also are a great decor piece.
- Hang it from the Ceiling: Sheer fabric suspended from the ceiling works great, especially in bedroom and dining room areas. It can work great for creating a cover for a closet, and is a nice way to give the illusion of separation while also creating a beautiful design piece.
- Utilize Shelving: Tall, open, free standing shelves work great for storage, displaying treasured items and adding a bit of separation to a room. The key with these pieces is to make sure to display things that look good from both sides.
- A high-back sofa serves as a good room divider too.
