You'll Go Crazy Over these Super Cool Loft Beds for Grown Ups

Share this:


Almost everyone–even certain celebs, seem to be downsizing these days. The tiny home trend is huge. But these diminutive dwellings present particular challenges to owners who are scrambling to come up with new and unique ways to save space. Behold the rise of  loft beds, with storage and lounging below, sleeping above.

These structures, inspired by the bunk beds of yore, are becoming increasingly compact and clever. If you’re creating an elevated master bedroom above the everyday living space in a tiny house, multi-purposing a home office into a guest room, or simply trying to get the most efficient use out of a small space, there’s a bed for that.

I’m especially intrigued by the beds with pulley systems, that are raised to the ceiling in the daytime, and lowered to the floor at night. The bachelor pad that actor Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men) had crafted is one of my favorites.

Whether you buy loft beds in a furniture shop, order them online (Wayfair has an outstanding collection), or have a skilled craftsman custom build one for your own space, you’ll find inspiration in my complete feature on Below find just a taste of some of the most intriguing loft beds:

    A� Can you and your children come to a reasonable acceptance of who will sleep on the top bed and who will sleep on the bottom.
    Often kids get a great amount of amusement and fun well into the night.

    Naturally, a bed is an essential piece of the room and it is significant footprint can take up a large amount of precious space.
