Beautiful Dallas Lofts

By: Brian Enright

The verdict is in: Lofts are where it's at! All over the country the loft has made a huge resurgence and is quick on its way to becoming one of the most popular new home styles in years. Perhaps the distinction should be made between types of lofts as the term "loft" is somewhat ambiguous and can refer to many different styles of space.

The True Loft - True lofts are what one would usually imagine when thinking about lofts. These spaces are usually located in old buildings that began their lives as warehouses, factories, refineries and other industrial uses. True lofts feature lots of exposed brickwork with concrete floors and huge windows. Typically there are no room dividers as the entire loft is simply one big open space. Sometimes there is an upper level or mezzanine that overlooks the lower floor. Other aspects that are usually found in lofts include exposed pipes & ductwork.

New True Lofts - The New True Loft is the result of the huge and overpowering demand for true loft homes. The simple fact is the demand for lofts was far greater than the availability of old warehouse and industrial buildings so developers simply started to build complexes that stayed true to the features of the original loft.

Soft Loft - The soft loft is a relatively new concept that features some of the distinctive assets of lofts in combination with more modern apartment style building practices. Soft lofts typically have defined rooms, hardwood flooring and less brick. in many soft lofts brick is utilized as a decorative feature and not the basic building material.

Finding a loft in Dallas has become quite the simple task. The overwhelming popularity of lofts has ensured that there is no shortage of units available on the Dallas market. With lofts ranging in price anywhere from the mid to high $100k's to over $1 million and higher there is assuredly a fantastic and beautiful loft out there that suits your lifestyle and your wallet.
