Making Space in a Small Kid's Room: The Box Low Loft with Desk

Making Space in a Small Kid's Room: The Box Low Loft with Desk
We know that, typically, kids have small rooms; particularly elementary school aged children. And, while that may seem like a disadvantage, we offer solutions that make their square footage work and even seem bigger! Low lofts are ideal for this purpose. By elevating the kid's bed, you've freed up floor space and allowed for storage and study underneath the bed. This is where the "Box" by Maxtrix Kids comes in! We like to think it's a perfect solution for small rooms. Here's why. (See all of our study loft solutions here!)

Straight Ladders save floor space

While we love staircase and angled ladders as entrances for bunk beds and loft beds, straight ladders are the best option for small rooms. They do not take up extra space in front or to the left/right of the bed like alternative entrances. With their straight lines they create a modern, sleek look. Rest assured, parents, our straight ladders have solid wood construction with extra wide and grooved ladder steps for climbing safely.


Safe Sleeping - up High (but not too High:)

At a total height of 50.75” (129cm) and an under bed clearance of 33.5” (85cm), Maxtrix Low Lofts do not sit far off the ground, so this is a great option for a child that wants a raised bed, but you don't want to go too far off the floor (your average High Loft bed is over 70 inches tall!), and that can be quite a climb. Also, low lofts are ideal for rooms with low ceilings. There is a lot of head space on the bed for moving around safely, but you still have the benefit of lots of additional storage space underneath your Loft bed.


Lots of Storage Space

You can customize your Maxtrix Low Loft to fit your exact needs. Dressers, desks, bookcases and toy storage all work in our modular system. In this specific configuration shown, we love how well the cubed dresser fits exactly underneath the bed. This dresser is very popular because it offers extra deep drawers for clothes and jammies. Then, the bookcase on the end of the bed allows for books and toys to stack nicely!

Plus, you can design it today and rearrange your pieces tomorrow. All storage units are removable and can be placed into a different corner of the room.


Room for homework

The perfect addition to this setup is the desk! Now you have sleep, storage and study all in one place. And, if you are designing a space for Back to School, this just might be the right solution for your son or daughter. Our new two-drawer desk has so many fantastic features, including deep storage drawers and a side hook for hanging computer bags or book bags!

The beauty of this desk is that is slides easily under the bed when your child wants more floor space for playtime, and then he/she can safely pull it out when they have homework or it's time to study.

When you are ready to move the desk to an independent location, it's just that simple!
