Loft Beds with Desks for Bedrooms, Apartments & Dorm Layouts

A high loft bed with desk is preferred by high school and college students as they sit high enough off the ground, which is great for two reasons. One, students feel like their sleeping quarters in a shared room is more private with an elevated bed, and, two, there is a lot of space underneath the bed for studying and storing personal items.twin xl loft bed college dormsdesk under xl loft for college dorms high school studentsfull xl loft bed college dorm teen room

Our high loft beds for studying are very popular for this reason. The bed sizes range from Twin and Full to College Loft Beds Twin XL, Full XL and Queen. Add a long desk underneath for the best study/sleep combination or use the space for standalone bookcases, dressers, nightstands or smaller desks. And, keep in mind that all lofts easily customize to the room dimensions, so the ladder entry can reverse and change sides (even sit off the footboard) when needed for the same price.queen high loft bed with ladder on end for college dorms

Dorm Room Ideas for Shared Spaces with Bunk Beds

Trying to fit multiple teens in one space? You can't go wrong with bunk beds - especially larger sizes now available in XL & Queen for longer legs and arms. Queen Bunk Beds are perfect for teenagers. Need two different sizes? Try a Twin XL over Queen Bunk Bed, which is popular with tweens, teens and even adults! And, don't forget about another shared bedroom option. Corner bunk beds provide sleeping quarters for more than one child and you have dedicated space for study or relaxation.  queen bunk beds for college dorms and apartmentstwin xl over queen bunk bed teen room college dormtwin high corner loft bed for dorms and college

Queen Beds for High School Bedrooms, College & Dorm

Lucky enough to get a private dorm room or off-campus apartment? If sharing a space and privacy aren't concerns, we recommend a Queen bed with low panel footboards. Try a few different headboard styles out - curved, panel or slat - in your favorite finish - white, chestnut or natural - and create the perfect single bed look!queen beds for teens queen bed for college student

Study Tips for Teens & College Students

Create a quiet space free from distraction- A dedicated work space helps keep students focused and centered. Quiet doesn't have to mean silent. Some children work better with music playing while they study and do homework. Especially if they are in a particularly loud setting from other siblings or outside noises. Creating a space just for your child to focus on their work promotes consistency and builds good habits.

Stay Organized with the best setups- As children grow so does their workload in school. Give them the space to store all the supplies they need to be successful. Adding a hutch to a desk or a bookcase can help keep all your study materials within reach. Or, a long desk that has extra storage space for notepads, books and drawing utensils. high school room with deskKeep it personal and unique- Accessorize! Decorate and encourage your child to personalize their space. Creating a positive study environment is just as important as keeping it clean and organized. Hang good grades on the wall as reminders of how awesome your child did on that math test. Inspirational quotes are fun, and easy to find and print from Pinterest.
