Urban living might a best but all these have the drawback: space. That is, if you live in a dormitory or a room where every inch is precious. And when you live in an area where putting a generous size of bed is impossible, eating at a coffee table requires to pass through series of maze, and rolling your sleeping bag every morning, it is time to call for help.

Loft beds makes your room more pleasant at it relaxed the crowd to your room. For children, loft beds can transform the bedroom into a playhouse even if the size is not big.

If you are considering to buy a loft bed, here are the things your should know:

Loft beds and bunk beds are two different things. Bunk beds are a type of bedding where there are two layers of mattresses. This is used if two people share one room in need for extra space. The most common type of bunk bed is the upper deck is horizontal with the lower and the length of the bed depends on your need. There are stack beds with a twin size bed on the top and is accessible by ladder and a full size bed at the bottom. Bunk beds cab also have the upper and the lower bed identical with each other. Bunk beds also may have the bottom bunk running vertically and the upper bunk running horizontally.

Loft beds on the other hand presents an elevated bed. This provides an ample space to place other things such as desk, computer, lounge, and table below. If you live with a roommate, having a bunk bed is more ideal than having a loft bed. But if you live alone, a loft bed is best for you.

Consider choosing specific type of loft bed depending on who is going to sleep on it. For teens, loft bed should be sturdy. Since they are much heavier than children, loft bed should provide enough support on their weight. Loft bed are also designed for children. Colorful loft beds are widely available and ensures the fun the moment bedtime arrives. It also has to have rails. The rails will protect your children in case they move at the edge of the bed. Strength should also be the top priority.

Consider the size of the bed. Make sure that the length of the loft bed will fit your room and your body. But first, make sure that the bed will fit in your doorway. Although there are loft beds that can be assembled inside the room, you should always make sure that whatever type of loft bed you choose, you could always get the maximum comfort.

Loft beds should match the room. If you already have existing furniture inside your room, make sure that the loft bed you buy will not destroy the whole arrangement of the room.

One more thing: loft beds can only be used by someone who is old enough to climb up and down the stair and not intended for children of a very young age.
