Remodeling a room can be a daunting task, mentally and financially. Sometimes, your creativity can be limited by the size of the room and your budget. If you are running out of space in your home, adding a loft bed may be the perfect practical solution. In fact, loft beds are great for adding extra space to smaller rooms by taking your bed off the ground.
Whether you are in a studio with limited space or renovating a room in your home, loft beds can optimize your restricted floor space. Like a bunk bed, loft beds are designed to allow you to have space underneath your bed. It may sound cliché, but loft beds do not use up your room’s square footage by enabling you to facilitate the room’s height for space. With the space under your loft bed, you can incorporate tons of different room uses. Whether you purchase your loft bed or decide to build your own, here are four ways you can use your loft bed to add more to your room:
When you think storage, you probably are considering some generic shelving, but you can add so much more design to this storage. Perhaps you can add a bookshelf with display items and your favorite novels underneath your new loft. Treat the loft as a separate entity of the house, and if you build your own, install decorative cabinetry below the loft bed. You can even make your loft bed over the main entrance to the room and decorate it to make it a clever vestibule.
Instead of just hanging a bar below your loft for clothes, consider installing a walk-in closet below your loft bed. You can have departments for your shoes to be stored and areas to hang clothes. You may want to place a stool in there to use when putting on your shoes. Hanging a mirror underneath can make your new closet space feel like a more welcoming changing room to get ready for your day. Also, placing a vanity underneath your loft will allow you to use your new space more, just remember to install efficient lighting.
Placing a futon underneath can be a great way to turn this space into a sitting area. Add seating with built-in storage compartments is an excellent opportunity to capitalize on your allotted space. Plus, having furniture that can easily tuck away or work as multipurpose storage can allow you to get the most out of your room. While seating areas can feel like a quaint home remedy, try to make a seating area that you will want to continue to use by having a television or another reason to draw you back. If you are in a studio, you may wish to have your living room couch underneath your loft bed or a table. By adding a table, you can allow this sitting area to be your main area for dining. The possibilities are endless when using a loft bed.
Turn your guestroom into a multifunction office by using a loft bed. Some loft beds are predesigned for this exact purpose. Simply install your desk and computer beneath your loft to give your office some privacy. Just be original with your office; you can have your computer against the wall or even set up a desk for face-to-face interactions with clients. With added storage compartments, you can tuck away different components to your computer for a much cleaner, minimalist setup.
Being confined or limited by the amount of space your home has can be quite tricky for designing a room. Think outside the box by adding a loft bed and freeing up some space. Whether adding an office or a walk-in closet, the space you save with a loft bed can make a significant impact on your home. In fact, studios have been incorporating this design for years. Lofts bed can be out in the open but still provide privacy with their height. If you feel limited on space, considering adding a loft bed to your home.
