Loft Bed with Desk for Small Room & Study Environments

Loft Bed with Desk for Small Room & Study Environments

Back to School is a great time to create the right environment for your child to get serious about school. The kitchen table may do the trick when nobody else is around, but seriously... when is that ever the case? When you are a kid, staying focused is tough – and siblings, pets and parents can be terribly disruptive when it’s time to hit the books. So here are some simple ideas and considerations to help you create the right study environment for your child to focus and learn.

Even the smallest room can become a functional space for studying and reading. The best way to save space and maximize small rooms is to raise the bed off the ground (also called “Lofting the bed”) and use the space underneath for desks and storage.

There are many loft bed designs, and choosing the right size and bed components depends largely on your child's height and needs. As you approach the time to customize your child's unique bed look, here are some of the main options to pick from:

  • Twin, Full, Twin XL, Full XL & Queen bed sizes
  • Low, High or Ultra High bed heights
  • 3 Headboard styles (panel, slatted and curved)
  • 3 Finishes (white, natural and chestnut)
  • One, two and three bed designs for shared rooms
  • Different combinations of desks and storage options for studying and keeping the small space tidy

Your end result is a functional bed with desk that maximizes small room layouts for at-home learning, school at home, homeschooling, homework and virtual classes.

Low Loft Bed with Desk

Consider a low loft for younger children. Ideal for kids 6 – 10, the low loft bed is 50.75 inches tall and creates 32.75 inches of space underneath the bed.

Low Loft Bed with Desk
Maxtrix offers desks that slide exactly underneath the low loft so they can be pulled out when it’s homework time, and tucked underneath the bed when studying is done. A great “side effect” of this solution is that desktop clutter is automatically eliminated!

The Maxtrix long desk with tilt top has been designed to run the full length of a Maxtrix® bed – so it fits exactly underneath a low loft. The adjustable tilt-top creates an angled writing surface which is more comfortable for handwriting and drawing. The pencil groove at the front of the desk makes sure pens don’t roll off when the surface is elevated. The mechanism to elevate the surface is easily operated – just pull up (one handed) and release and it will stay in place. To bring it back down, just repeat and lower all the way.
