How to Style an Insanely Cool Loft Bedroom (Even If You Don't Live in One)

It’s a common misconception that styling a loft bedroom is all about having good bone structure. Sure, high ceilings, industrial finishes, and open layouts create striking spaces (ones that we’re happy to let dominate our Pinterest feeds). And there’s no denying that these more urban-inspired features create a sense of downtown cool using that gritty, rough-around-the-edges texture that reminds us of Brooklyn before it became the new Manhattan. But in reality, those edgy architectural features are just the tip of the design iceberg that creates an insanely cool loft bedroom; in fact, there are myriad ways to get inspired by real lofts to create your own loft-life bedroom space in any location (and with a smaller price tag, to boot). Simply put, you don’t need high ceilings to go high on style.

It’s time to make your lofty aspirations come true. Scroll for eight lessons learned from the chicest loft bedrooms we’ve seen.
