Long Beach Lofts are generally raw space they are usually live/work space with high ceilings, open floor plans and plenty of light. Most of the lofts in Long Beach are historic or landmark buildings which have been converted into residential lofts. Builders have defined basic living space by installing kitchens, baths, bedroom/s, closet/s and storage space in most of the newly converted lofts in Long Beach. Doing this eliminated the after purchase expense of build out for the buyer and problems attaining financing. Lenders do not like to lend on raw space and most will not finance without an existing kitchen and bath.
Lofts do tend to be a bit noisier than the average home. Area rugs, window and wall coverings and defined spaces will cut down on the noise. With the exception of kitchens and baths, loft living spaces can be highly functional, spaces can be easily moved around to accommodate your needs and can be defined in many attractive and unique ways. While defining spaces it is possible to leave them easily adaptable, for instance decorative screens can create an additional bedroom area for guests, or specific areas can be moved around to accommodate larger scale entertaining.
Lofts are usually more attractive to those with a more eclectic flair. With endless decorating possibilities lofts are a great opportunity to mix the old with the new. Perhaps unique windows were restored and can be left uncovered or an old wood floor may be left in place lending grace to the condo/loft, once sanded and polished to a new gleam. Plop a brand new plush Italian leather couch onto the area rug in that living room and your loft is already warming up. Go modern, go historic, go anywhere your taste and purse allow you to go. A loft is a unique space that is uniquely yours! The design possibilities in wide open spaces are only limited by your imagination. Go ahead and get your swank on!
