Urban style has come into the design spotlight and is brighter than ever before.  When you think urban, living in a warehouse may not be the first thought in your mind, but these spaces are a natural for true urban style.  They provide a sound structure that blends industrial elements with modern space and openness.

Warehouse conversions are noted for their soaring ceilings, often highlighted with exposed ductwork or steel and wood beams.  Older places often have walls made of brick, bringing a rustic appeal to the space.  Concrete floors, tall windows and sometimes skylights provide even more appealing elements.

Leaving these architectural features in place and renovating around them is what is so appealing about the warehouse to home conversion.  Keeping the integrity of the space intact and re-using materials that are integral to the space gives the home a sense of history.

Versatility is one word to describe the interiors of these converted homes.  Taking a blank, bare space and making it into a home is a challenge that resulted in stylish, well-designed homes with an urban edge.
