When Preston outgrew his nursery, mom, Shila, chose a Maxtrix sturdy toddler bed that she knew could grow with her son. A year later, Preston was ready for an even bigger bed! And as an older preschooler who had accumulated more things, Preston equally needed more storage. Shila decided to lift Preston's twin toddler bed off the ground and add under-bed dressers. The result was our best kids low loft bed with storage - the Box! Now, Shila easily keeps his room organized while Preston enjoys climbing up to his new reconfigured bed design. Shop Preston's Room Collection.
Take a look back at Preston's original toddler room. As twin bed, Shila's main goal was to invest in more than just a kids bed. She researched and knew she wanted a furniture system that could change over time like building blocks. Preston thoroughly enjoyed his twin toddler bed and felt safe and secure with the guardrail.
Hear why Shila decided to transition Preston's bed to a low loft and how she plans to continue to reconfigure this same Maxtrix twin bed next year!
Kids Toddler Bed Changes to Low Loft with Storage
After months of research, we decided to go with a Maxtrix bed last year because I saw how easy it was to modify them. My husband is not a handyman, but he put the bed together without any problem and was very grateful that the instructions were very clear. And above all, the craftsmanship and the quality of the products are amazing. Not to mention, they also look great.
We assembled most of the new bed components with the exception of the dressers that came pre-assembled, which save
Parent Tip: I highly recommend that you decide which part of the room you are planning to put the bed in before assembly so you install the ladder on the correct side of the bed. We chose the left side for spacial reasons.
As for the staff, I am so pleased with all the help I have received throughout this entire process. If you are shopping for a kids bed, Maxtrix has a design team ready to help you select the right look for your space.
Future Plans to Convert a Low Loft to Bunk Beds
Preston has thoroughly enjoyed both of his Maxtrix beds, but we know, ultimately, our two boys will want to share a room. We have plans to redesign Preston's low loft bedroom into bunk beds with stairs so the boys can both easily climb. In the last year, they have become inseparable, and it's so heartwarming for us to see that. We can't wait to share our second redesign with you!
Thank you, Shila! We love watching Preston's bed change as he gets older, and we look forward to seeing it evolve over time.
Low Loft Configuration Options
While Shila chose three dressers for Preston's low loft storage bed configuration, there are a few more options to customize the right storage/study bed for your child's room. Consider any combination of bookcases, storage cubes, dressers, desks and toy boxes. Customize your perfect low loft, which is truly the bed that let's you get creative with the space underneath.
Try a deep, solid wood dresser with soft closes for small fingers.
Or even deeper 4-cube dressers for larger items like blankets/bedding or toys!
Avid readers enjoy bookcases to store book collections.
And students old enough to begin homework and at-home learning opt for student desks that slide in and out easily to free play space when unused.
Maxtrix low lofts are so easy to customize. All of our low case goods fit under the front or bed end so you get exactly the right design for your child's room layout. Ask our design team for assistance with any storage or study loft bed setup.
