Remember sleepovers with the friend that had the cool "high bed"? It instantly became a fort, indoor treehouse, pirate ship as kids, gaming destination as tweens and hideaway spot as teenagers later. The idea of using a bed as not only a place to sleep but also the destination for studying, hanging out or exploring imaginations is one of the reasons why Maxtrix was started. Loft beds are truly functional pieces of furniture that provide so many customization options for any space or age. If you're considering a loft bed for kids, tweens or teens, here are some basic things to know, first.
Loft Bed Shopping Notes - Heights & Customization OptionsSimply put, a loft is a bed that is elevated off the floor and is usually a single bed. Maxtrix offers low, medium, high and ultra high loft beds, so four different bed heights. See more in our Fit & Measurement Guide or find out what size bed is right for your child.
Medium Lofts can also have a slide or curtain as we offer an extension panel to make sure curtains are long enough. However, these lofts are often combined with storage like dressers and desks for the older child.
High Lofts are usually bought for older kids - tweens, teens and even college students (think dorms!) – often to put a desk underneath to optimize space.
Why Should You Purchase a Loft Bed?
Great Space Savers
With plenty of room underneath the loft bed, your child can use the additional floor space for storing toys, adding a desk, nook reading or playing with friends and family! Shop Loft Beds with Desks
The Fun FactorNot only can you add a cool slide, castle panels or or curtains to your kid's bed, but they'll love the excitement that comes along with sleeping up high! Shop Playhouse Loft Beds or Loft Beds with Slides.
Retreat SpotAs your child gets older and becomes a tween or teenager, they'll be able to create their own space underneath the bed. Let them "get away" from it all with an area they helped to design with items they chose.
Always always, bed safety is key – especially for loft beds. Just as with our bed system, make sure their are guardrails and that the children understand ladder safety. You need a rock solid connection. See what makes our system so unique in that regard:
Mix & Match
You can interchange your loft with other favorite items, such as a great couch, a funky chair, comfy poufs and modern benches to give your room a unique and edgy style of its own. Or, add a desk with coordinating finishes!
