Jumpstart Your Day: Lofty Goals in a 19th Century House
See how modern solutions blend well with classic touches
We have to admit—we’re big fans of clever and unexpected small space ideas (just click here for some definitive proof). Whether it’s a hidden loft on top of a closet or secret rooms concealed by doors—these solutions tickle our fancy and inspire us to come up with our own groundbreaking innovation. While we’re still working on that “big idea,” check out this unique loft bed that we spotted over at Living in a shoebox.
Another project by the genius Norwegian company Ett rom til, this inviting loft is situated over a dining nook. The challenge for the team was how to fit it in such a way that it doesn’t take up too much space and that it should still allow light to stream into the room. You’ll be surprised with how they achieved the perfect solution without interfering with the theme of the house.

From below, you might think that the loft occupies the same width as the dining area. In reality, it was kept narrow so that there would still be enough space to let light through.
Scared of heights? A special type of glass was used for the railings. Using glass instead of other solid materials give the loft bed an inviting and airy look.
Is that cotton? The bed looks so inviting, we can stay here all day!
We’re definitely filing this room under #goals! Check out some of the things that we loved about this space:
How luxurious is the compact dining area? If you also have a small dining area at home, you can still make it look elegant by choosing a chandelier as accent piece and cushioned dining chairs.
Don't forget to add a beautiful centerpiece! Arrange a vase of flowers, decor pieces, and curated accessories in a tray.
The ladder leading up to the bed can be moved easily so that it won't take up floor space when the bed is not in use. This makes it easier for the owners to open the door leading to the balcony, too.
