If you have a tiny bedroom that doesn’t have enough room for all the furniture you need, a loft bed may be the answer.
“They’re a super-efficient way to use space,” said Laura Fenton, author of “The Bunk Bed Book,” published next month by Gibbs Smith. “A loft bed truly frees up the space beneath the bed and opens up a lot of possibilities.”
The area under the bed can be used to create a home office, a storage space with cabinets and shelves, or even a play cave for children.
And while loft beds are more common in children’s rooms, there’s no reason adults can’t use them, too, said Ms. Fenton, who installed one with a desk and storage space in her first New York apartment.
