If there is a style that combines restraint, practicality and accessibility, then surely this is a loft. The fact that several decades ago it was just an effective working space has now turned into a special style that is slowly moving from lofts equipped for housing to magnificent villas and modern penthouses. This trend, wandering from generation to generation, seems never to die!

Loft-style is a coarse textural beauty in a wide variety its manifestations. Simply put, when designing a loft-style kitchen, you should think about tiled, brick, and even concrete walls. Brick, obviously, enjoys the greatest love of homeowners and is currently leading in the list of the most popular materials for wall decoration. But do not forget about the importance of suitable flooring - it can also make a significant contribution to the process of transforming the room.

The flooring options are not to be considered - from the parquet laid with chevrons or herringbone to the dark painted floorboards, which give the industrial-industrial kitchen a really vintage look. Tile a brick apron with apron, hang a few open shelves, and now your kitchen has become even more charming.
Surely you had to see a truly unusual loft-style kitchen and wondered: how did its owner manage to create such a unique, fascinating space? It goes without saying that the correct selection of décor and accessories that fit well with the style, are far from the first place in the list of actions that made it possible to achieve such a result. But at the same time, it is the decor that gives your kitchen a personality that reflects your own taste, makes it different from other cuisines, and does not allow to slide into generally accepted standards.

For many, loft style is a search for a balance between modern sophistication and sharp notes, angular strokes that this style brings. This fusion of styles works great, and you can raise or lower the level of coarse industrial-industrial beauty in the kitchen simply by adding or removing some décor elements over time. A luxurious loft-style kitchen creates a sensation of delicate softness, it is open to the glitter and gloss of luxurious cabinets and worktops. Do not forget that any style, and loft is not an exception, is created not only by the decoration of the ceiling and walls, but also by lighting.

Gray is great for the interior of a loft-style kitchen, as this color combines the harsh restraint of the industrial-industrial space with modern sophistication.The one who decided to equip the kitchen in this style can begin by replacing the lighting fixtures with the most appropriate design directions, and then add individual elements (for example, wardrobes or bar stools) in the course of time to find the perfect combination of modern and classic.
Since, as examples of the implementation of the loft style, we tend to see large rooms with huge windows and double height ceilings, it seems that this style is not intended for small kitchens. This is completely untrue, since efficiency, economy and ergonomics are the defining principles of industrial style, which makes it ideal for small spaces.

Since the open-plan living space is quickly becoming the norm, a small kitchen in the corner not only adds a sense of intrigue, but also makes it easy to demarcate the space without resorting to rugs or suspended ceilings! Add a few color accents, a bit of natural greenery, let in enough sunlight to give the room a lighter and more joyful atmosphere.
Open shelving is another great way to bring the beauty of a loft style to your kitchen and at the same time expand your available storage space. But do not forget that the rack should create a feeling of natural roughness, and if you have a modern kitchen set, shelves of raw wood or stainless steel will create the necessary contrast. Kitchen racks, antique dish racks and free-standing cabinets will allow you to fully utilize the available space and maximize free space even in the tiniest kitchen.
