Shared Bedroom

A loft bed is a great solution for a shared kids' room, freeing up floor space for playtime. In this bedroom, a twin-sized bed fits neatly underneath a raised sleeping area. Rather than a ladder, a real staircase is easier for a child to climb when getting in and out of bed.

Hip Hangout

In a teen bedroom, a loft bed can make space for a sofa or a few chairs—a handy feature when friends come over to hang. In this black-and-white room, a comfy sectional is the ideal spot for lounging, listening to music or playing games.
