Loft Bed Guide


When your kids are up and running, sturdy beds, good quality mattresses and box springs will give their growing body the support they need to rest comfortably, and the beds will survive the occasional kids’ monkey jumping. If your space is limited, consider buying loft beds as they feature playing area underneath them, desks as well as storage area. Some have twin bed that are installed under the loft and works well in rooms with ceilings of at least eight feet high.2

Lofts beds can be the best addition to very small spaces. In fact, lofts can be very small areas which are just enough for a bed, or even have enough space for a few pieces of furniture. Choosing the right kids loft bed can be the difference between a large space which is ignored as its unwelcoming and a small space which is enjoyed by the kids.3

Kids’ lofts

The right loft bed can form a nice secret hide-space that is just enough for your kid. When choosing your kid’s loft, understand his or her preferences in terms of hobby or color, but remember that he or she is growing; you may need to take that into consideration.4

Choices for kids’ lofts

When choosing the right kids loft bed, there are a number of features to consider for kids lofts. Consider some of the following features:5

Study area

Purchasing a loft bed with a study area underneath or built-in desk is a great choice for your older teens and children who might have small room for extra chairs and a table to be placed elsewhere in their room.6

Play areas

Majority of kids lofts come with in-built tents, tree houses, slides as well as castle towers. If your kid like to have fun and requires a place to sleep and play, you should consider buying a play loft.7

Ladders, slides and stairs

Before you buy your loft bed, you need to ask yourself how your kid will be getting into as well as out of the loft. Some beds come with stairs for safety purposes, while others use slides and ladders for added fun.



You may consider maximizing the space in your kid’s bedroom with a loft bed that has built-in storage space. Some beds have drawers in each riser of their stairs leading up to the bed, while others have in-built chests of drawers and even shelves. If you are looking for storage underneath the bed, then we would highly suggest a captain’s bed.


Lofts with bunks

If your kids share one bedroom, or your kid entertains visitors regularly, choose a loft with a bunk. They often include a trundle tucked under the loft or a small lofted bed from the main loft bed.

Loft bed offer extra space, a workstation, storage space or a second bed added to the main bed. Most of loft beds are customizable, thus you can add as many features as you want depending on the available space.
