The loft bed is considered one of the most cozy additions to the bedroom. It allows for comfortable sleeping without the loss of desperately needed space. In its most basic form, a loft bed is more or less a bed on stilts. It uses a basic twin size bed frame attached to the inner braces of the structure. For this reason, if you simply want to elevate your child’s bed to free up floor space, it’s possible to construct your own loft bed. However, you must be very safety-conscious in this endeavor. Do you want you child to be sleeping in or playing below a rickety box? When in doubt, enlist the help of a professional. Of course, a loft bed doesn’t have to be made from scratch. There are a number of loft possibilities that can be found at your local furniture store. Most of these are designed like a bunk bed without the bottom bunk.
