Loft beds are a great way to make a small room feel like a larger bedroom space. By simply adding an elevated bed, you can place a desk, dresser, or play area underneath it. This is truly the perfect solution for a child’s bedroom that has to double as their playroom or study room.
You could even leave the area underneath the bed open and hang a sheet or fabric shower curtain in front. It makes the perfect “tent” or clubhouse for children. Perhaps, you would rather add a game table underneath the bed.
