Conventionally, sleeping rooms are placed upstairs, so that we “ascend” to a more peaceful place in the house when we want to hit the pillow. Having a nice and isolated bedtime corner seems more unique if it has a special access and unique room location. Most of us have loved tree houses and hammocks; even Harry Potter’s cupboard under the stairs might have held a certain fascination to some of us.
The fact is, in a house with a tall ceilings or an irregular shape, especially in a historic house, unused corners and spaces might occur. Lofts can be the fabulous result of such spatial juxtaposition. For those young and busy types who have not yet found the peace of sedentariness and only retire to the bedroom for the necessary evening rest and privacy it offers, such lofts are most suited.

You have a chance of concretely enjoying that fascinating space in the roof gable, with its sky facing windows, that features an interesting and intimate space experience. Add to that the poetry of reaching it over a ladder. And how about a slide pole for quick descension ? A treat for the inner child!
Often, a loft space can result adjacent to a two story living room. These are the stylish lofts that impress us in movies, spacious enough to house a king size bed, an exercise bike for the morning workout and perhaps a lounge chair for the statement it makes next to a flat screen.
