Edmonton Condos Vs Edmonton Lofts: Which Style Is Best for You?

Posted by Sara MacLennan on Tuesday, April 8th, 2014 at 10:29am.

When you're looking to purchase a piece of real estate in Edmonton, you'll have many decisions to make in regards to what kind of a home will suit your personality and lifestyle the best. This often means deciding between an Edmonton Condo and an Edmonton Loft, since both can be affordable yet each style offers its own unique benefits and caters to a particular type of person. So which style, loft or condominium, is best for you?

The Condo Personality: Organization

If you're someone who craves organization and structured spaces, a condo might be a better choice for you. With a condominium, you'll typically find a space that is well organized with the structured rooms you're used to. Bedrooms are generally separated in their own enclosed spaces and are set away from the living space to provide a functional layout for entertaining and sleeping soundly. In a condo, you can often get an enclosed den space as well as plenty of structured closets, which ensure that you stay organized.

The Loft Personality: Freedom

If you're someone, on the other hand, who loves open spaces and plenty of room and air for breathing, dancing, and moving about, you're most likely to fall in love with a loft. Many lofts offer higher ceiling heights and unstructured living areas in which the kitchen, bedroom, and living spaces are combined into one large, open area. This can also be a huge benefit to those professionals who run their own business and work from home, since you can set up an area for your office without feeling confined to a small room. The live/work opportunities offered in lofts are particularly beneficial with two-level lofts, in which the sleeping area is set upstairs, and an office can be set up on the main level.

The Classic Style: Condo

If you have a more classic style, a condominium is likely the best choice to suit your personality. Whether you opt for a new condo or an older, renovated one, you will likely find a style that is classic and traditional. This can act as the perfect canvas for you to decorate and make your own, while still giving you that sense of comfort and simplicity you crave.

The Eclectic Style: Loft

On the other hand, if you have a more raw, eclectic, or edgy style, a loft is definitely for you. Many lofts are historic; some are warehouse conversions, and feature exposed brick or concrete in the interior. Exposed beams with high ceilings are another common feature, and each of these unique features demonstrates a sense of urban eccentricity.

When it comes to choosing between an Edmonton loft and an Edmonton condo, the right decision really depends on personality, individual style, and personal preference. This should be an easy enough decision to make, since you'll likely know which style best suits you based on what you're excitement level is at when you view each type of property. Just be sure to do your research, and view your fair share of Edmonton condos and Edmonton lofts before making the final decision.
