If your bedroom isn't very big, it can feel crowded with nothing more than your bed in it. Thankfully, loft beds can come to your rescue! They can be a bit complicated to create, but the results are always worth it; nothing gets your bed out of the way like lifting it off the ground.
There are a ton of different ways you can build your new bed, depending on the size and shape of your room, but your dream design is out there. Perfect for people of all ages, these cozy loft beds turn your sleeping area into a welcoming hideout while making the most of your bedroom space.
1. A relaxing retreat
Found in the home of blogger Gail Carriger, this beautiful bed is the ultimate cozy reading nook. It's a great way to take advantage of an oddly shaped home, and the space underneath the bed could easily double as extra storage!
2. Sleep under a skylight
This dreamy bed was designed by JJ Locations, and the house it's in is often used as a filming location. Because the bed is suspended under a retractable glass ceiling, it's the perfect way to go star-gazing without leaving the comfort of your own home.
3. A mini bedroom
If you have a bigger loft space, you can probably fit your entire bedroom up there like designer Whitney Parris-Lamb did. With room for a closet, big bookshelves, and a comfy bed, this loft is a space-saving dream come true!
4. An adjustable pull-down bed
If your home is 580 square feet, the same size as Mad Men star Vincent Kartheiser's, you can learn a lesson from his tiny Hollywood home and build a pull-down bed like this one. Designed by Funn Roberts, the bed hangs from the ceiling and is easy to hide away when not in use.
5. A room within a room
This ingenious piece of furniture designed by Archiproducts will give you more space than you ever thought possible. It's way more than a bed; it also functions as a sitting area, a room divider, and a place to store all your knick-knacks!
6. Bed and dresser combo
If your room feels crowded with furniture, building a 2-in-1 dresser and bed like this one might be the perfect solution. Custom-made by the creative owner of Joined By Our Heartstrings, this bed was built around an Ikea dresser.
7. The biggest bed possible
For the truly tiny home, the best choice might be to build your sleeping area right under the ceiling. Designed by the creators of Protohaus, this amazing bed gives you ample room to sleep without making your house feel cramped.
