Although the kitchen in this loft apartment is small, it still has the amenities of a larger kitchen. A full size refrigerator, dishwasher, oven and microwave allow for ease in cooking, while extra counter space was created with the addition of the kitchen island. On the other side of the island, a breakfast bar adds casual seating, extending the entertaining space of this loft apartment.
Stairs are not merely for circulation through the apartment, but feature built-in storage cabinetry and drawers below. A dark wood floor and wood stair treads lead through and around the apartment, spiraling up onto the wood deck at the roof.
The loft at the HGTV Smart Home 2013 located in Jacksonville, FL has a color palette directly connected to views. Bold graphic prints pair well with cool lime-green upholstery fabrics. Making use of every inch of space, the leather sofa opens out to a full-sized sleeper.

With two leather chairs providing luxurious seating in front of a large screen TV, this is the perfect living room space to catch a game and enjoy time with friends, and with the connectedness of the loft spaces, the party can continue throughout the home without making anyone feel excluded, extending the entertaining space of this loft apartment.
A bed is lofted above a studio apartment to keep from taking up precious space in the living area. Built-in shelving provides a storage space for books and other personal items, while a simple wall light provides lighting without adding visual clutter.
