High loft beds are a great option when it comes to storage. When you raise the bed off the ground, it creates all this extra space underneath that you can use to store all kinds of things. We’re talking clothes, shoes, toys, even furniture like dressers or desks. And the best part is, many high loft beds come with built-in storage options like drawers or shelves in the steps of a ladder or stairs. It's like a hidden bonus storage! Not to mention, the height of the bed also makes it perfect to store things above it like a bedside tray or beverage holder. If you're trying to maximize storage space in a small room or apartment, a high loft bed is definitely worth considering.
What Makes a Good High Loft Bed?
First, let's talk about the loft bed itself. When looking for a high loft bed, it's important to find one that is sturdy and well-constructed. Look for a bed that is made of solid wood and has a high weight limit that can accommodate your needs. A good high loft bed will also have tall guardrails to keep you safe while you sleep.
Maxtrix loft beds have 16” high guardrails - the highest in the industry. When paired with a low profile kids mattress, you’ll have 11” of safety guard height (more than double the regulation requirement). Learn more about the benefits of choosing a low profile mattress for a high loft bed.
