For small children, a low loft bed might be the ideal solution to dealing with a small bedroom. These beds typically have just shy of four feet of clearance underneath the bed. While this much space may be sufficient for small children, teenagers and college age students need more space if they are to do anything with the space under their loft bed.

The Advantages of High Loft Beds

High loft beds provide an additional foot of space underneath the bed. While it may not be enough room for most people to stand up, the extra space makes it much easier to place furniture underneath. Placing either a desk or couch underneath a high loft bed is a great way to save space in a small bedroom.

The additional space also makes it possible to put other pieces of furniture underneath the bed. A dresser unit can take up a considerable amount of space because it limits what else can be placed in the bedroom. If you have not yet purchased furniture, however, you may want to consider purchasing a high loft bed that has storage space integrated into the bed frame. The shortcoming of such units is that if you decide to replace the bed frame at some point in the future, you will have to buy new furniture too.

Before you rush out to purchase a high loft bed, take careful measurements of your bedroom. While you do not usually have to worry about the height of regular beds, you will need to make sure that your ceilings are high enough not only to accommodate your bed but also to let you sit up in the morning without cracking your head. If your ceilings are low, a low loft bed will provide you with some of the advantages of a loft bed without the risk of cranial damage if the alarm startles you awake.
