You may be surprised at the number of styles of pine loft beds that are available. If you are simply looking for a basic frame to elevate your mattress, you can purchase unfinished pine loft bed frames. Pine is a popular choice for unfinished furniture because it easily absorbs stains and finishes, allowing you to customize your furniture to fit your personal style.

With a little searching, you can find pine loft beds that are much more detailed than plain wooden beams and posts. Some loft beds include drawers and cabinets that provide you with organized storage. Another feature that is built into some loft beds is desk space. In essence, your loft bed frame can be the only piece of furniture that you will need to have in your bedroom.

Some loft beds also feature space that has been allocated for an additional mattress. When college students have friends visiting for the weekend, they often have to sleep on the floor. Some loft beds include a drawer that pulls all the way out and is designed to accommodate a second mattress. When your guest leaves, you can simply push it back in with no one the wiser.

Building Your Own Pine Loft Bed

If you enjoy do-it-yourself projects, pine is a very easy wood to work with and is available at most hardware stores. You can give an employee the plans for your bed and ask that he cut your wood to the proper lengths. This can often save you a significant amount of money. If you choose to do it, however, you may want to purchase loft bed plans or kits, which include instructions on how to make the joints strong. Since you will be sleeping on this bed on a daily basis, you want to make sure that it is sturdy and will not collapse under your weight. Purchasing plans is a small price to pay for peace of mind.
