Stuck with Low Ceilings? Small Rooms?

If you are considering an elevated bed, take into account extra space on the top bed for your child to comfortably move around with enough head room. Our low loft beds and low bunk beds are perfect options to maximize space even in rooms that may seem too small to accommodate elevated beds.

Low Lofts

Low lofts are 50.75” tall (about 4.2 feet), leaving plenty of headroom even if the room has 8’ ceilings.

Low Bunks & Mid Lofts

Mid lofts and low bunks are the same height (61.5”/5.1 feet), and can comfortably sleep whomever is in the top bunk; even if you have a low ceiling. We recommend calculating at least a 2 foot/24” headroom over and above the height of your bed – so if your home has 8 foot ceilings, these beds would more than fit!

Small Rooms with Strange Angles and Corners?

All of our beds are 80” wide (head to foot), and come in a choice of standard twin (42.5”) or full (57.5”) depth. If the size of the room is a concern, consider going with a straight ladder as the most space saving option to enter your bed.


With Maxtrix, You can also add either a ladder or a staircase to the side of any bed – effectively entering through the footboard. This option is very popular with people who have space constraints of want to maximize difficult to maneuver corners and angles. Here's a helpful guide to help you select the right entry - staircases or ladders.

Small Room with Limited Storage?

Is your son or daughter's room small and without a built-in closet? Or, is the closet super small and likely already full? Consider a loft bed with storage, which you can customize with your choice of shelves, dressers or play curtains. The best part of a Maxtrix bed is that you can easily reconfigure it later; ex: slide the dresser out as a standalone and add something different like a desk underneath the loft.

Tall Ceilings but Narrow Room?

If you have a room with tall ceilings but a narrow footprint, consider our high loft bed. They create lots of space by lifting the bed off the floor, allowing you to either leave the space open, or utilize it as you see fit; add storage, seating, a study area, or make space for a hobby (it’s a great spot for that drum-set!)
