While there’s certainly nothing wrong with a good old fashioned regular bed, a lofted bed can offer many advantages that traditional beds simply cannot. If you’re considering adding a lofted bed to your home or dorm room, here are some great reasons to do so.
Advantages of Lofted Beds
- More space for small rooms. Getting the bed off of the floor opens up all that space underneath that you can use for a study space, relax in with a futon or even just use as a storage space for things you don’t want sitting out. Regardless of what you use it for you’ll appreciate having more room, especially when you’re trying to cram more into a small space.
- It can clear out the clutter. Because you now have more space in your room it allows you more space to put all the other things in the room. Shelves under a lofted bed offer a range of storage options, from keeping books in order to managing an expanding collection.
- Lofting offers more versatility. There are certainly more ways that you can arrange a room when you have a lofted bed as opposed to a traditional one. The extra space offers room for everything from additional seating to a hobby corner, thing there may not have been room to add before.
- They are ideal for shared space. Whether you’re sharing space in a dorm room or just with a sibling, lofted beds are a practical way to make the most of a shared room. The additional space can be used for personal things, private space or simply to fit more in a small room.
- It’s just like regular bed—only better. Loft beds can be just as comfortable and practical as any traditional bed. You, or whoever is using the bed, can still get a good night’s sleep with loads of added benefits of having additional space in the room.
No matter how you decide to use a loft bed, you’ll undoubtedly enjoy the flexibility that a lofted bed can provide in dorms, homes and more.
