How to Add Space to a Small Apartment

King Size Loft Bed in Small Studio Apartment

How do you add an extra 50 square feet of floor space to a small apartment? Well, build a king-size OP Loftbed, of course!

Paul in Minnesota built the bed you see heare and he wrote to tell us. "I went with the king sized loft so I could put two twin mattress up there so that both my 11 yr old son and I could sleep in. Under the loft made a perfect play area for my 6 and 4 year olds. I raised the height so that I could stand under it (I'm six feet) and added a couple railings. It's really sturdy. Now I just need to stain it and add some carpet to the stairs for extra padding. Fun project, ended up costing around $150 which is really great for the amount of space it saved me (I live in a 650sf studio apt)."
