The best way to make kids happy when they’re stuck with “the small bedroom” is to give them a loft bed to sleep (and play) in. For space-challenged families, there are added benefits to installing a full-size loft bed with stairs.
“Supersizing” to a full-sized bed also allows the family to turn the space into a guest room for adults, with most units able to support grown-ups weighing 300-350 pounds. Some manufacturers claim their loft models can handle weights as high as 1,000 pounds.
More benefits: the space under an adult-sized bed is large enough to accommodate a complete home office setup, a student’s desk and bookcase, or a child’s play area. And kids love the stairs, naturally, because they make the unit a fun addition to an otherwise-ordinary bedroom. Some models come with ladders instead of stairs, which many children love even more.
You can buy a full size loft bed with stairs in many different configurations. One popular option is a unit that has a bureau built into the side of the frame, and another features integral drawers or shelves for clothes or toys. The drawers can be on the side(s) or bottom of the bed, or built into the risers of the stairs. You can also purchase these beds with a desk bolted right into the frame.
Less-common but fun alternatives are loft beds with slides attached, models built in child-friendly shapes like cars or boats, or ones which come with detachable tents for “campouts” next to the bed.
Full-size loft beds with stairs are manufactured in two basic materials, wood and metal. Solid wood loft beds are sturdier, and the best choice if an adult plans to crawl up the stairs to sleep. You’re most likely to find these models made of oak, maple or pine, to fit with almost any traditional design. Particleboard with a veneer or laminate finish is also used to make loft beds; they’re cheaper, but not likely to last for the long term.
If the room’s design is more modern, powder-coated steel is a good choice since the paint color can be picked to match the décor. If you have a lot of money to spend on your kids or will be using the bed for guests, you can opt for a wrought iron loft bed which will be the most expensive selection.
