Unique Study Loft for Kids - Kicks10

Top Reasons to Love the Kicks10 Study Loft

First, safety is always our top priority. With an angled ladder entry, kids climb safely up to elevated low lofts using the sturdy handrail. Non-slip grooves on the ladder steps ensure their feet don't slide off while climbing PLUS as a low loft, there are only three steps to climb.

Top guard rails keep kids in their beds at night, preventing rolling out during sleep. This is usually the number one parental concern, which is why we take it seriously at Maxtrix. With one of the highest guard rails in the industry, your child is safe with Maxtrix.

Want extra rail height? Try a 5" MaxMattress, which is available in a few different spring/foam types.

Finally, the slats underneath the mattress are solid wood and strong. In fact, our beds are built to withstand up to 800 pounds!!

As with all of our quality study lofts, when choosing your configuration, know that you have choices. We offer three shades, including white, natural and chestnut, and also three different bed end styles, including panels, slats and curved.

Start by selecting your base bed, like the "Kicks" shown here.

shop the Kicks

Create configurations with different dressers, bookcases, desks and toy boxes underneath. The popular "Kicks10" features a long study desk in the front and a four-cube dresser under the footboard.

The long desk is super functional with three drawers in the front for easy access to materials, while the top actually tilts with extra storage space underneath. When opened, kids are able to use the very long flat surface as an art or drawing board.

Store clothes, blankets, bedding and more in the very deep drawers inside the four cube dresser. This sturdy, solid wood piece of furniture helps to keep the room tidy AND stands the test of time.

But, what's the best part about this study loft and ALL Maxtrix furniture? They change looks easily over time. The long desk and cube dresser can slide out as stand alone pieces of furniture; just add crown and base kits to the dresser!

Back to College Furniture Guide

Summer is a quite rewarding time for recent high school graduates who have just finished up major exams and achieved significant milestones. Gearing up for the next chapter in life is exciting but also a little scary. (We remember all of the nervous energy involved with college preparation.) Want to simplify the furniture search for dorm and apartment life; consult our handy Back to College Furniture Guide with our best selling and most popular loft beds, bunk beds, desks and study beds for the emerging college student.

Loft Beds with Desks for Dorms and Apartments

High lofts are preferred by college students as they sit high enough off the ground, which is great for two reasons. One, students feel like their sleeping quarters in a shared room is more private with the bed elevated, and, two, there is a lot of space underneath the bed for studying and storing personal items.

Our high loft and ultra high loft study beds are very popular for this reason. The bed sizes range from Twin to Full to Queen. Add a long desk underneath for the best study/sleep combination or use the space for standalone bookcases, dressers, nightstands or smaller desks. Here are some best sellers:

And, keep in mind that all lofts easily customize to the room dimensions, so the ladder entry can reverse and change sides (even sit off the footboard) when needed for the same price.

Single Beds for Dorms and College Students

Lucky enough to get a private dorm room or off-campus apartment? Then sharing and privacy are not quite a concern, so we recommend a single bed with low panel footboards. Try a few different headboard styles out - curved, panel or slat - in your favorite finish - white, chestnut or natural - and create the perfect single bed look!

College Furniture for Students

If opting for a single bed (or bunk bed), maximize the configuration by adding under-bed storage or pullout trundle beds for friends.

And, stand alone desks are always nice! We have the perfect selection for older college students with deep drawers that will hold the massive text books!

Reversible Ladders and Slides on Maxtrix Kids Beds

Often with furniture, what you see is what you get, and as shoppers there is nothing more frustrating than "almost" having the look that you want/need. Our furniture designers had you in mind when creating our key kid's bed components. The most common request is to move the slide or ladder from one side to the other. That's easy with Maxtrix. So, when you see a picture of one of our beds, simply know that you have configuration options; starting with reversible ladders and slides!

How is this so easily possible? Our beds are a part of our configurable furniture system. This simply means that using our core components, you can piece them together to create the perfect look for your space; similar to Lego building blocks! Furthermore, the same bed can change over time as your child grows.

Reversible Ladders & Slides

Reversible Ladders & Staircases

All Maxtrix elevated beds are designed with three entry options - staircase steps, angled ladder or straight ladder. These entries can be place on the front of the bed on either the right or left side as seen below.

Headroom above top bunk on Tall Bunk Bed

Our staircase entries sit just to the right or left of the bed (not in front like the ladders).

Desk Under High Loft Bed with Stairs
Ladders can also be placed on the headboard or the footboard. And, if you move and need to change the entrance at a later time, you can with reversible ladders.

Ladder Entrance on Footboard
For those looking at corner bunk or loft beds, there are two separate entrances to both beds up top. YES! You can switch these out. Try two straight ladders, one straight and one angled, one angled and one staircase... you have six possible combinations. Our design team will take your room measurements and help you select the best fit.

Reversible Slides

When creating a fun play loft or bunk with slide, the first thing you'll want to do is to measure to make sure there is plenty of space in front of the landing area. This often will determine where the slide is placed. Just like our ladders, slides can go on the right or left of low or mid bunks or lofts.

With high bunks and lofts, we've created a safe way for kids to slide safely with our new slide platform. The platform is just like a staircase entry in that it will sit beside the bed on either side (adding width).

The slide platform also works for rooms that do not have enough space in front of the bed for the slide.

What Bunk Bed Height is Right for My Child?

We recently shared some great tips for selecting the right size kid's bed for your space, but we received some follow-up questions about bunk beds specifically. As the bunk experts, we welcomed the opportunity to share more about selecting the right bunk bed height for your child. The good news is that at Maxtrix, we have three different bunk bed heights and will show you the differences.

Keep in mind that no matter the bed height, you can choose from three different bed finishes (white, natural or chestnut), three entrance types (straight ladder, angled ladder or staircase), three mattress sizes (twin, full or Queen), and finally three bed end styles (slat, curved or panel). Easily customize the right look for your chid's room!

Full over Queen

Did you know that our bunk bed ladders and slides are reversible? They can go on the right or left side of the bed's front OR opt for a side entry!

Low Bunk Bed Height

Younger children love bunk beds. In fact, it's often their first "big kid" bed after their toddler bed. If you started with a Maxtrix toddler bed, it will easily convert to a low bunk bed simply by adding leg extenders and a second bed. If you are starting new, low bunk beds are recommended for children around age six (but as a parent you know your child best!) Take a look at head room and bed height measurements below (assuming an 8' ceiling height):

Low Bunk Bunk Bed Height

If shopping low bunks, they are also fantastic as a base bed for extra play accessories like slides, underbed curtains and top tents - all of which can be removed when your child outgrows them. Slide safely out of our solid wood beds, and choose from many fabric color combinations for tents and curtains.

Low Bunk Bed with Slide

Mid Bunk Bed Height

Adding about five inches more to the height of the low bunk, the Mid Bunk is a great option for slightly older children around age eight. The ladder or staircase entry will have one more step, but there's still a lot of head room between the two beds and between the top bed and ceiling.

Medium Bunk Bunk Bed Height
shop mid bunk beds

Mid Bunks can also easily convert into play bunks with an extension piece added to the under-bed curtains, but we often advise against top tents unless your ceiling is higher than eight feet.

Our mid bunks are some of our most popular designs with our best selling Get It, Got It and twin over full Slope and Sumo.

High Bunk Bed Height

Those with older kids around ten or rooms with higher ceilings have the option to go even higher with our High Bunk Beds. While this option gives you the most headroom between the two beds, your head space up top is a bit more limited. For this reason, we recommend a low profile mattress at five inches width, which will allow for ample sitting height.

We recently introduced a slide platform, which enables even those with high beds to add a slide for fun! Our best selling Poof is a good example of this design:

Want to keep it simple and streamlined? The Tall is the way to go with a clean look. Kids climb safely up a straight ladder with stair grooves and hand rail.
