Adult Loft BedsWritten by Serena Berger
You might think of loft beds as something that you outgrow at a certain age. There are several reasons, however, that you may want to get a loft bed at any stage in your life. One particular time many adults want to get a loft bed is when they are living in a small apartment right after college.
Once you place a desk, bed, and dresser unit into your bedroom, you may notice that the amount of remaining free space is limited. Chances are, you can't just rent a larger apartment. In addition to the higher rent that you would have to pay each month, going through the ordeal of moving is time consuming and costly on its own. You may well have less space than you thought you had seeing the apartment empty and unrented, but you have to make due.
Increasing Space with Adult Loft Beds
One way to increase the amount of free space in your apartment is to be smart about how you set up your furniture. This is not to say that you should get rid of your bed and sleep on top of a set of drawers. A better option is to purchase a loft bed. These beds can increase the amount of space in your room by elevating the bed off of the ground and allowing you to use the space underneath your bed to its fullest extent. While many people tend to think about space in terms of the available floor space, loft beds allow you to fit more into the same area by placing usable surfaces at different heights.
If you are moving into your first apartment and do not own any furniture, you might want to purchase a loft bed unit that includes all of the furniture that you will need. On the other hand, if you already own a desk or set of drawers, there is no reason to purchase a loft bed that includes these. You can simply move them underneath the frame of a basic loft bed.
