Not all of us are lucky enough to enjoy a loft, but those who do may have some clues on how we can better fill out the bigger non-loft spaces we do have.</br></br>There’s something about a loft that inspires imagination, and it would be great if all home dwellers could harness those ideas and apply them to more conventional areas. So, let’s look at our first four tips in Part I of this series.</br></br><strong>Furniture with Mucho Surface Area</strong></br></br>What is it about endless miles of counter space that makes us feel so good? Quite simply, it’s the prospect of opportunity – the visual confirmation that, yes, there is even more room for all my STUFF.</br></br>How to avoid filling it up with knickknacks and subsequently destroying the magic is a topic for another day. The first goal is to find something impressive that gives you more topside décor options: a <a title="Coffee Tables" href="https://www.atgstores.com/furniture/living-room-furniture/living-room-tables/coffee-tables/" target="_blank">coffee table</a>, a kitchen island, a sprawling <a title="Dining Tables" href="https://www.atgstores.com/furniture/kitchen-dining-furniture/dining-tables/" target="_blank">dining table</a>, whatever.</br></br><strong>Hammocks and Other Hanging Seats</strong></br></br>We loved swing sets as children and, if we're honest with ourselves, most of us would have to admit we still want one.</br></br>So, if you have the room, maybe you should think about a fun indoor addition.</br></br>Hammocks may be one of the most popular grownup versions, but there are lots of options. Porch swings, <a title="Swing Chairs" href="https://www.atgstores.com/outdoor-garden/patio-furniture/outdoor-seating/swing-chairs/" target="_blank">swing chairs</a> and even a no-kidding swing shouldn’t be off the table if you’ve got the space to hang it inside.</br></br><strong>Oversized Décor Objects</strong></br></br>Whatever it is that you want for decoration, now it can be massive – and sometimes bigger really is better. Oversized items are often a must in large spaces because more diminutive décor can get lost in the atmosphere.</br></br>Giant sculptures, large floor lamps and the obligatory vintage floor fan (see above) are just a few items that look right at home in big spaces.</br></br><strong>Rugs That Unroll Forever</strong></br></br>An <a title="Rugs" href="https://www.atgstores.com/home-decor/rugs/" target="_blank">area rug</a> is a great way to add sexy snap to a large area without cluttering it up with a bunch of stuff. Big, never-ending rugs are hard to miss, and the right pattern will easily punch up whatever look you’re trying to achieve.</br></br>Tune in tomorrow for four more lofty ways you can decorate big, airy spaces, whether it's an actual loft or not.
