In contemporary homes, lofts are not just a place to dump things or a space that is kept hidden from others but it is a place that is functional and is there to be flaunted.

Loft in the loving room ;) oops L[i]ving room:

Well, it can be said that any place is best to have a loft. If it is a small flat, you can add a loft to the living room itself. It can be built as a cozy area where you can have a bed, a chair, and even a study table, just making it like another room itself. Loft living room design idea can serve as a ‘guest room’ or even an additional ‘bedroom’. The stairs to space can double up as storage drawers.

Another idea is to make it a study space with table, table lamps and an inbuilt library on the walls. Or make it a library. Since it is in the loft, there is no one to disturb you either. You can decide on whether you want the area to be closed with a glass door or curtains or you want to keep it open.
