Psychosomatic, attic, insane
Loft when referring to insulation, attic at all other times.
don’t know why don’t @ me
There’s a whole entry on this, here:
However, some definitions suggest that the term ‘attic’ refers to the entire storey of a building under the roof, whereas the term ‘loft’ refers to one or more rooms or spaces under the roof, but not the entire storey.
- A loft room is accessed by a fixed staircase and has the whole loft area converted to a living space including the sloped eaves if the property has a pitched roof.
- An attic room is accessed by a fixed staircase and has the eaves area of the loft squared off to create a box room in the centre.
The term attic derives from the low decorative columns that often appear in the top storey of a building above the main façade in classical architecture. It was then adopted to refer to any decorative facade above the main story of a building, and subsequently, the space enclosed by such a facade.
Attic if it’s been converted into a room and loft if it’s just used to store stuff. Easy
We have an attic room and loft space.
Juke Is, Juke Feels. This juke’s a person you know.
Loft (UK) - Dark. Eaves to hit your head on. Boxes of old toys. Spiders.
Loft (US) - Exposed brick. Band playing in the corner. Cool people.
Feel like an attic has a certain amount of… grandeur to it, though?
This has an attic
This has a loft
Always said attic in English — loft is literally the Norwegian word for it so I guess it’s felt more natural to say attic when I’m speaking a different language??? Have started saying loft when talking about the kind of thing that @guntrip described above or just a fancy renovated attic space I guess. Probably just influenced by US pop culture there though
finally, the thread weve been waiting for
Loft becomes a nicer loft
And thats where the term ‘lofty aspirations’ comes from
