If you’re blessed with reasonably high ceilings, but plagued with minimal floor space, this microloft kit might be the solution you need for maximizing your living area. The modular “DIY Loft Kit” will bring a legit lofted space (complete with staircase!) to any tiny apartment, adding an extra 160 square feet to sprawl out in. But be forewarned, it doesn’t come cheap. At $3,115 (yup), we can’t imagine anyone who’s living in a studio or loft with six other roommates to be shelling out that many Gs. But on the other hand, this is NYC, and at just over $19 a square foot, maybe it is a deal?
The microloft kit is the creation of Expand Furniture, a Canadian company focused on furniture that will “create space in your home that you did not know you had.” This particular design is a steel construction that affixes to the wall for stability and comes complete with a wood and metal wrap-around railing and a stained wood stairway—overall, a look chic enough look to suit this discerning city.
