Buying Guide

In general, your ceiling opening should be at least around 55” long and 25.5” wide if you’ve got straight loft stairs. A larger ceiling opening is required for turning stairs so that there’s enough headroom. Besides, the larger the ceiling opening, the easier it would be to move furniture into your loft. With this in mind, the center of the stairs should have a minimum clear headroom of 75”. The floor space dimensions will depend on how wide your loft stairs are, but the accepted minimum width is 22” although wider stair treads are usually recommended.

A loft with stairs can be a great way to add storage to your home or create an extra living space. However, there is an art to arranging a loft for maximum functionality. A lot depends on your loft’s size, but ideally, you’ll want to create distinct spaces.

Lofts aren’t divided into separate rooms, so sectioning it out is the best use of space if yours is quite large. This can mean a sleeping area with a bed and then a separate space defined by a rug that can be filled with throw pillows and blankets for a reading nook.

If your loft is small, it’s crucial to stick to minimalistic design choices; otherwise, the space can quickly become cluttered. Avoid chaotic patterns that might enclose the room, sticking to light solid colors and matching tones.

Make the most of your loft area by incorporating storage solutions into your existing furniture. A bed with drawers under it or a bench that is also a trunk can help keep the area tidy. If you have stairs leading up to your loft, try to add storage within the staircase as well.

When choosing a bed for a loft with stairs, there are several factors to consider starting with the height of your room. Very often lofts are not very high, and hence a lower bed, for example a platform bed or a low profile bed will be most suitable.

For small spaces, sleeper sofas or daybeds will be the ideal choice due to their space-saving features and additional functionality (seating space).

Beds with storage underneath will help you keep the loft clutter-free and perhaps use it more practically.

Your choice of bed will also depend on whether that space will be used as a bedroom or a guest room. If the former, you will want to choose the most comfortable bed; if the latter, a smaller or foldable option  may be considered, too.
