The most common issue of owners of loft bed frames is they can' be accessed quickly as the ladders have wrong settings. Thankfully, you won't have to deal with a wrong ladder configuration as the TUFFING Loft Bed comes with one that's placed at the center of the bed not just for ease of use but for the safety of the user as well. Additionally, there are straight rails for added stability.

The upper bunk or the loft bed can accommodate up to 220 lbs, making the bed frame a tank! Guardrails are added to ensure that it would be impossible for you to fall off your bed even if you use a 5 1/8-inch thick mattress.

Under the bed is some space that's free for you to use in whatever way you want. You can use it as a parking space for your bike or maybe your lounge or study area. If your room has limited space and you want a bed that will allow you to make smart use of every square footage, then the TUFFING Loft Bed Frame is a must-have and a worthy investment.
