Jumpstart Your Day: 4 Loft Beds for a Small Space

Achieve a one-of-a-kind sleeping space with these ideas


To save on floor space, some of us opt to have double deck beds to make use of vertical space. If you have a small home and you want to have a comfortable bedroom without sacrificing style, here are four loft beds that you may want to consider.

Remember to consult with your carpenter if you're planning to have these pieces customized.

Bedroom and Home Office in 1

This space highlights storage, a home office, and a comfortable bed in one piece. You can place your laptop or desktop computer on the sleek table while your decor pieces and other essentials can be placed on the open shelf on one side of the table. 

If ever you're tired from working, you can easily climb the steps for a quick power nap.

Style it: Improve the space by adding an interesting area rug.

A Hideaway Bed

How about waking up to the warm rays of the sun? This hideaway bed is conveniently placed under a skylight. 

Style it: Maximize the space by turning the stairs leading to the loft into storage areas. You may add hidden cabinets per step! If you have a home office just under the loft, transform the side of the stairs into a blackboard.

Compact yet Cozy

Found in a 159-square-feet tiny house on wheels, this inviting loft bed features a small overhead shelf where one can put pocket books and a small lamp. If you're thinking of having a loft, make sure that it's well-lit. In the case of this tiny space, a window at the foot of the bed let natural light in.

Style it: If you're a book lover and if you own a lot things, take inspiration from this home by converting your stairs into extra storage solutions. Customize it by adding hidden drawers and closets for clothes, books, and linen.

A Loft for the Young Ones

If you're planning to revamp your kid's bedroom, take inspiration from this sleep and study loft. It houses a compact study area that's complete with shelves to accommodate essentials, decor pieces, books, and storage boxes.

To make the most of the piece, a cork board was added for notes, photos, and prints. One side of the wall highlights a chalkboard calendar to help the occupant keep track of deadlines and commitments.

Style it: Personalize the space by taking into consideration your kid's favorite colors and interests. Choose comfortable sheets with interesting prints that will work well with the room's color palette.
