Have you ever looked up at the high ceilings of your home and wondered what to do with all that extra space? Lofts offer a unique opportunity to add functionality and personality to your living environment — whether you're in need of a home office, a cozy reading nook, or a play area for the kids, the possibilities are endless. Read on as we explore a few creative ways to make the most out of your loft and transform it into one of the most cherished spaces in your Shea Home®.

Lyric Legends Marlow Model Loft

Home Office Haven
With the rise of hybrid/remote work since 2020, having a designated home office has become increasingly important. Convert your loft into a productive workspace by adding a desk, comfortable seating, and ample storage solutions. Make sure to incorporate plenty of our beloved natural Colorado light to create a bright and inviting atmosphere that fosters creativity and productivity.

Playful Paradise
For families with children, the loft can serve as a dedicated play area where little ones can let their imaginations run wild. Fill the space with toys, books, and games, then incorporate fun and colorful decor to stimulate creativity and encourage active play. Install built-in storage solutions to keep the space organized and clutter-free — you don’t want your tiny astronauts to trip over asteroids while they explore the galaxy, after all.

Relaxing Retreat
Utilize your loft as a tranquil retreat where you can unwind and escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Add a plush armchair or a cozy sofa along with soft throws and pillows to create a cozy reading nook or a meditation space. Give the walls a character boost by experimenting with bold and moody color palettes or consider installing a skylight to bring in natural light and create a sense of openness and serenity. Now take a deeeep breath. Doesn’t that feel nice?

Entertaining Hub
Turn your loft into a versatile entertainment space where you can host gatherings and socialize with friends and family. Add comfortable seating options, a bar cart, and a mini-fridge to create a cozy lounge area perfect for movie nights or game days alike. Consider installing a projector or a large-screen TV for an immersive viewing experience so that you never have to miss a Nuggets playoff game.

Fitness Zone
If you're a fitness enthusiast, consider transforming your loft into a dedicated exercise area where you can work out in the comfort of your own home. Install gym equipment such as a treadmill, exercise bike, or yoga mat, and incorporate mirrors to create the illusion of space and enhance your exercise experience. This idea is perfect for chilly Colorado winter days when you want to stay cozy at home but still get your cardio in!
