Loft style apartments have gained in popularity recently because of the open feel of the rooms. Loft living can be something of a luxury--but if you want to clear up the clutter in your existing room, you do not have to spend a fortune to do so. Loft style beds provide a simple solution to creating additional space in your room at a fraction of the price of moving to a larger apartment.

Creating Space with Loft Style Beds

Many college students purchase loft beds because their dorm rooms are incredibly cramped. With a little bit of creativity, you can take a room with less than 200 square feet and make it feel like a luxury pad. By elevating the bed off of the floor, you can place additional furniture, such as a desk or sofa, underneath the loft. This can provide additional seating so that your guests do not have to sit on your bed with their backs against the wall.

Loft style beds may include much of the furniture that you need in your room. It is not uncommon for such beds to integrate desks and drawers. Of course, if you have your own furniture already, you can probably fit much of it in the area underneath the bed frame, freeing up the floor space that it once occupied.

Some parents might worry about their children's safety with loft style beds. They will be relieved (and probably impressed) to know that many loft beds sold today employ a structure similar to that used in constructing bridges. By strategically placing additional beams in the frame, the frame is reinforced and will remain sturdy for years to come.
