4. Channel Light Throughout

Adding even one additional source of natural light can make a big difference in the way long, narrow loft spaces look and feel. Removing a wall exposed one of three windows in back to channel light into the center of the loft and in the process created a homework nook for the kids. Two interior walls now separate the kids' side-by-side bedrooms. Trading up from a drafty factory window to a better-insulated Andersen unit of the same size was a custom job, but worth it. With one desk under the window and another in a niche along the adjoining wall, both kids have a bright, comfortable work area they can linger in.
