Advantages and disadvantages of loft-style bathroom decoration

Unlike other styles, a loft bathroom is not suitable for all homeowners. It attracts young people with a modern creative taste who are ready to share their personal space. This style looks good in a spacious country house with tall windows and large rooms.

Features of loft bathrooms

What are the characteristics of a loft bathroom and what requirements a room must meet: 

  • Mandatory presence in the interior of details that emphasize belonging to the industrial era, for example, walls with exposed brickwork or rough plaster. Moreover, it is characteristic to use the cheapest materials of low quality for finishing. If there are open metal pipes in the room, then covering their surface with rust will be precisely what you need.
  • The use of non-standard accessories. To keep the style, on the walls must be graffiti that is inherent exclusively to street culture. You can use as decor: road signs, street posters, works of art in the form of abstraction. The layout of the room should be as open as possible; no partitions are allowed. Even the bathtub itself and the shower stall should be open. In case of strict necessity, it is permitted to use transparent curtains to protect against splashing water. When the bathroom is equipped in a large room, the division is done by zoning using different finishes on the walls. Despite this, the loft bathroom interior does not exclude the possibility of using modern materials. Today, designers have mastered the art of skillfully combining them with elements of an industrial style. You can combine rusty steel pipes with trendy ceramic tiles and modern bathroom fixtures.
  • You have to pay particular attention to the furniture. Loft-style bathroom design allows you to use furniture to emphasize the zoning of the room. It doesn’t matter what kind of furniture you use. It is preferable to find rare interior items that will be especially stylishly combined with chrome and glass of modern elements.
  • And most importantly, the room must be large, with a high ceiling and a huge window to provide enough daylight.
