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.

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.
UPDATE: Low Loft Now Converted to Bunk Beds with Stairs
One year later, Preston was ready for another room change... and little brother was ready to move in! See how they changed their low loft into a bunk bed with stairs AND added their original trundle bed from the toddler room design back underneath the bunk bed.
Preston has thoroughly enjoyed both of his Maxtrix beds, but we knew, ultimately, our two boys would share a room. After showing them all the options my older son chose to convert his low loft into the bunk bed with stairs. It was so much fun having him involved in choosing the big boy bed to share with his younger brother.
After two conversions, surprisingly all of the bed components have held up very well. I have two boys, and we all know how they can be with all things white. I was very nervous, essentially, but as you can see from the photos, we are almost two years in, and everything looks great!
