Dallas Loft Styles

A trend that has exploded in recent years, loft living has become one of the most sought-after housing styles in Dallas. Incorporating the urban vibe of the city, loft spaces are appealing for their open layouts and artsy nuances. Less rigid designs and a deviation from traditional interiors allow residents to use their loft space in any way they choose.

Dallas Warehouse LoftsWarehouse style lofts, similar to the one pictured to the left, are concentrated in the Deep Ellum, Fair Park and surrounding Downtown Dallas areas. Included are buildings that formerly housed a Ford Motors parts plant, a flour mill, cotton gin and the Sears Catalog Merchandise Center among others. The majority of these lofts are residential, though several offer residential /commercial spaces that appeal to artists, photographers and other business professionals seeking a more eclectic space. These lofts feature original hardwood and stained concrete floors, soaring ceilings, exposed brick walls and industrial features.

Dallas High Rise LoftsDowntown Dallas is home to several high rise buildings that have been converted to residential loft spaces. Styles of downtown Dallas lofts include sleek, contemporary spaces with luxury finishes, as well as those with more industrial, original finishes. Several of the loft apartments have floor to ceiling windows with incredible views, amenities such as on-site dog parks, concierge services and access to the Central Business District underground tunnels.

Soft lofts are located in new construction apartment communities with more open floor plans and industrial finishes. These lofts are perfect for those residents seeking higher end features, but a less traditional living space. Several soft lofts communities have opened in the past couple of years in the Uptown, downtown and Design District areas.

Dallas lofts are extremely pet friendly, with most allowing large dogs with some breed restrictions. Several dog parks in the area cater to the urban dweller and are a great place to socialize and meet one's neighbors.
