Why Choose Full Size Loft Beds
Loft beds have always reminded me of my college days. During that time I was crammed in a small room, living with a few other students. But loft beds are not only for students in dorms, you can et one to maximize the space inside your home. With a loft bed in place, you can create a study area or a small home office no matter how small your apartment is. Your child can sleep on the loft bed and there will still be enough space underneath for his books, study table and underwear drawer. A full size loft bed is also a great addition to any guest room or a beach cabin.
Loft beds are also popular among young urban professionals who are just starting out in a big city. It’s the best furniture for a small apartment, or for your room if you need to share it with a house mate.
There are different types of loft beds available in the market nowadays. More often than not, loft beds can be categorized according to size and the material used to create the bed.
To make life simpler for you, narrow down your search to twin or full size loft bed. Full size loft beds are approximately 15 inches wider than twin sizes, but the extra inches might spell the difference between discomfort and relaxation for some people. Personally, I would go for the full size loft bed right off the bat because I need the extra inches for more pillow space. Full beds are also commonly called double beds.
Basically, loft beds can be made up of a metal frame or wood frame and a sturdy mattress. The type of frame that’s best suited for your room depends on your budget and your room’s decor. If you’re getting a wooden loft bed, however, you should pay attention to the type of wood used. Cherry and oak hardwood make for excellent loft bed frames.
You can opt to build your own loft bed if the person who’s sleeping in it is too tall for the regular loft beds you buy from the shop. For example, you will need to add more frame support if your child is heavier than average.
If you’re buying a loft bed, always look for extras, such as built-in computer desk, a chest of drawers and book shelves. Of course, additional features will jack up the price of the loft bed. Don’t forget to ask the retailer if the price includes assembly. Most loft beds arrive in boxes to be assembled later inside the room.
