Do you want to turn your beds into bunk beds, so there is more room for activities? Well, it isn’t only a dream in the world of Step Brothers. It’s finally time to save space in your bedroom and transform your bed into a high-rise adult loft bed to make room for your desk, workout equipment, dresser and more — because bunk beds don’t have to be for kids.
While some might find adult loft beds a bit juvenile, any adult living in a large city will know that bedroom space and storage are a luxury. Full-fledged adults living in cities like New York, Tokyo, London, Chicago and many more are choosing to heighten their sleep by lofting their beds to make space for the rest of their furniture. Considering that city apartments typically have higher ceilings, to begin with, adult loft beds don’t make you feel like you’re being crammed up against your ceiling either. Adult loft beds also come in various sizes to ensure you won’t have to buy a new mattress.
Worried about your weight? You might have heard that most bunk beds can only handle a certain amount of weight. While this is true, adult loft beds are made to hold much more than your average kids’ bunk bed. You’ll feel safe climbing up and laying down.
If you’re interested in lofting your bed to save space in your bedroom, note that it’s the right choice if you’re even thinking about it. You can’t part ways with your furniture, and you do not have enough space with your bed taking up as much room as it does, so it’s finally time to make the purchase.
Read on and check out the best adult loft beds in 2022 and figure out which is best for your needs.
