Adult Loft Beds for the Modern Home

Lofts are truly enchanting nooks! Maybe it’s the way they maximize space or the fact that they seem like secret elevated hideaways… Either way, when a loft doubles as a bedroom, there is an extra incentive to make it special. The loft bed is the adult equivalent of the bunk bed. Nothing beats closing your eyes at the end of a long day and knowing you’re on top of the world!

Today we feature 20 loft beds… And let’s just say that no two are alike! From bunk-style beds to beds that were hauled up the steps to reach their high resting points, these sleeping options will inspire you with their innovation. Not to mention, they just might take you back to those days of playing in your childhood tree house, away from the cares of the world. Enjoy!

In fact, many young adults love the idea of loft sleeping, especially when it comes to dorm rooms.

Modern Beds in Lofts

We now move from “loft beds” to beds that rest in lofts. Often smaller in space, the typical loft can be a challenge to decorate. Do you custom build the bed? Do you find a way to haul a mattress up the steps? Yes and yes! As we see in the next image, this East Village studio loft bedroom in New York features a built-in bed that perfectly matches the rest of the space. [from Jordan Parnass Digital Architecture]
