Pigeon loft, commercial loft, rigging loft, sail loft, church architecture and loft conversions are the different types of lofts available in the United Kingdom. Hard lofts and soft lofts are the main kinds of lofts that can be found in most buildings. Hard lofts are to be found in the industrial buildings which have been converted into residential complexes.

Lofts are often built by the developers while a few of them are part of the older buildings also. They are extremely useful for the modern urban population.
