Buying Guide

A loft bed has always been considered a kiddie room staple. It’s fun. It’s cute and it saves space that can be utilized for play areas and the likes. But one wouldn’t dare think of installing a loft bed in a room meant for an adult, would they?

The fact is that loft beds are perfect for adults, teens and kids alike. They fit easily into small rooms and they can integrate functional furniture pieces like study/work desks and futons. That’s a dedicated study/work zone, an expandable sleeping surface and a full sized bed, all combined into an aesthetic design with a compact footprint.

What more can one ask for? But selecting a multifunctional loft bed can be daunting, with all the features to consider. Here’s a buying guide that will make it easier for you to select one of these versatile beds for your home.

Loft beds come in single, twin, queen and king sizes. The size that you select depends on who will be using the bed and also on the availability of space in the room. Conventionally, loft beds are propped against a wall in a child’s room. This opens up the remaining floor space and keeps the child protected from one side without installing a guardrail.

However, in a teenager or an adult room, there should be at least three feet of distance between the edge of the bed and the wall. This will allow a full grown adult to move freely while getting into the bed or out of it. You can also select a bed based on how high the ceilings are and how much headroom you prefer between the top of the mattress and the ceiling. The bare minimum number is 30”. But some people find this too claustrophobic and might look for a bed that offers more head room.

Study desks can be L-Shaped and positioned on one side under the bed frame or it can be retractable one. Retractable desks are installed using a glide tracking system and can be pulled out as needed. The caveat is that these cannot be used for desktop storage.

Conventional designs can feature drawers, open shelves, cable management systems and ample space on the desktop. Consider the storage and usage needs before you narrow down on a design. Also, account for the extra space needed for the chair.

Loft beds usually feature twin-sized futons which fold into recliners or lounge chairs when not required. If it will be used frequently, ensure that you pick a good quality mattress that’s comfortable. If it will be used occasionally, for an unexpected guest or for kiddie sleepovers, even a normal mattress will work fine.

The frame and the design of the futon will be matching the rest of the set. But you can always customize the fabric or use attractive futon covers to match the other furniture pieces in the room.

To make sure the loft bed you are buying either fr your children or for yourself is safe, answer the following questions:

  • What is the bed frame made of?
  • Is it solid wood? Is it metal?
  • How sturdy are the stairs?
  • Does it conform to CPSC standards?

As is the case with any bunk bed that you buy, consider the build quality and the safety before everything else. You can find these in tons of attractive designs and finishes. But it’s the stability that matters the most. Speak to the manufacturer and seek all the details before you buy.
