Buyer's Guide For Loft Beds For Adults

The average height of a loft bed is 58 inches. Most consumer guidelines recommend 30 inches of space from the loft mattress and ceiling.

There are three loft bed categories differentiated by height: low loft, mid loft (low bunk), and high loft. Low lofts are 50 inches tall and are best for children and rooms with low ceilings.

Mid loft, also known as low bunk, fits in a 96-inch-tall room and gives your loft enough space to add a lower bunk bed or storage area. High lofts are 74.25 inches tall leaving room for a dining area, desk, and chair, or futon underneath them.

For a narrow bedroom, find a loft bed that has a built-in ladder at the footboard. This will give your room some more space than a ladder that sits diagonally on the side.

When you are searching for an adult loft bed, try to find one that is full, queen, or king-sized. These sizes are the most comfortable to sleep on. With less room to move around, twin-sized beds can still sleep one adult.

Wood loft beds are versatile and unique with different configurations and are beautiful and classy in all room settings. Metal loft beds are simple and affordable with a modern, contemporary, and minimalistic elegant flair.

The Wrap Up

Loft beds for adults are elegant and provide more space. You can choose metal loft beds with desks and chairs or wooden loft beds with extra bunk beds and trundles.

We hope this list helps you on your loft bed journey. The choice is now yours to make!
