Loft Beds for Kids: Maxtrix Buying Guide

Loft Beds for Kids: Maxtrix Buying Guide
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 Options

Simply 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.mid loft bed with slide

    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. twin xl loft bed with deskqueen high loft bed

    Our new Uber Lofts are the way to go if you are looking to maximize the most amount of space possible. Designed for kids at least 12 years old, teens and young adults, the Uber Loft Bed offers plenty of room to create a study bed space or gaming spot underneath while opening up your room for other furniture. It's even tall enough for most adults to stand comfortably underneath. uber high loft

    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:
