Choosing a loft bed with desk is a fantastic way to take advantage of vertical space in a college dorm room apartment or other small space. Even if your school supplies furniture, getting one may be well worthwhile as it can be used for several years and help make the most of a tight space. The added space for the desk area can not only easily accommodate your studying needs but provide room for extra storage as well.
There are many different styles available for loft beds that include a desk area below, so we’ve decided to break it down into a few different things to consider for when you are choosing which piece of furniture you will use.
Finish/Color Style: Bed frames come in just about every finish and material, from stainless steel to fun and bright colors. White birch and other wood styles are also highly popular. Choosing stainless steel will give your room a more contemporary feel, while wood finishes will give you a warmer atmosphere and more traditional look.
Weight Limits: You have to be careful as a full grown adult in choosing a loft bed, since some may only be intended for younger children and therefore may not be able to support your weight. Make sure that when choosing a bed it states maximum weight and that it is safe for adult use. You don’t want your bed to tip over in the middle of the night, possibly injuring you or breaking your things!
: The bottom part of the loft bed is the most important if you are looking for desk space. Some give very little counter space, which is optimal if you’re looking for additional storage space or seating. If you need a lot of workspace however, you’ll want to find one that encompasses enough room for you to do the things you need to do in the desk area. Some may also offer an additional mattress space or built-in shelving or storage space within the unit.
Price: Loft beds can range from very affordable to quite costly. Many do not include the mattress with the frame, which means you may have additional costs in addition to the sticker price for the frame alone. It can be an excellent investment that will give you many years of use, so you’ll want to consider how much you spend on it carefully – especially if you’re the type to constantly change your mind and styles quite often.
