The loft area of a barn home is one of those great spaces which can be used for many different purposes. From home office to library, art gallery to reading nook, the possibilities for this space are limited only by the imagination. The space is airy yet private; perfect for whatever room suits your home and lifestyle.
Having been involved in a number of post & beam photo shoots, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to see first hand how people choose to use the loft space. Here’s just a sampling of what I’ve seen.
Another great use of loft space I’ve seen time and again is as a library/home office. Utility is the obvious requirement, but who says it has to look utilitarian.
Then there’s the space we want to use for whatever purpose suits us at the moment, whether it be reading, writing, studying, painting, knitting…well, you get the idea. Whatever your intent, a loft space is one of those areas which can transform to your specifications without much fuss or bother. What’s not to love about that?
Yet another purpose for a loft space is a crafting area. Storage may be built in or free-standing. What matters is the ease with which the space transforms for it’s intended use.
The simple beauty of the loft is this; it’s uses are vast and can be created to accommodate multiple purposes. If you’re lucky enough to have one of these spaces then you already know what I’m talking about!
