3. Loft Bed with Closet Underneath
Putting a closet and/or cabinets underneath your loft bed is a great way to get around the whole height issue. A closet doesn’t necessarily have to be walk-in — you can still get a lot of closet space even if it’s only 4 or 5 feet high.
9. Lofted Kitchen Space
If you have a small living space, it’s perfectly acceptable to put a loft bed in the kitchen. Here, the ceilings aren’t super high but there’s a lot of horizontal space to keep the things you might need in a typical “bedroom.” You could even keep a tv up there.
12. Platform Trundle Bed with Living Room on Top
Disclaimer: I know this is feasible because this is my tiny 300 sq. ft. NYC apartment! We came up with this space-saving solution because our ceilings are only 10 feet high. In the top photo, you see that the bed slides out from underneath the platform on casters. When the bed is fully tucked away, there’s a step attached so you can climb onto the platform easily. In the bottom photo, you see the living room area we eventually arranged on top.
And yes, we wallpapered the floor.
16. Space-Saving Alternate Tread Stairs
Consider this type of staircase, which saves space and makes it ascending and descending much easier. Also, the owners placed cabinets in the low ceiling areas to create extra storage space around a full-sized bed. Read more about it here.
