Below are some of the stylish designs that will transform the overall look and function of your kids’ room.

Built-in and Customized Designs:

If yours is a home with mature teenagers, a built-in loft bed works better. The beds mostly come as unadorned since the users are already matured. When it comes to lighting, thoughtful lighting is the right option and in the case of multiple loft beds, there should be a demarcation so that the grown ups sharing the space will have some privacy. The color scheme of gray and lime green reminds the users of the loft beds to respect each other’s space.

Mini rooms:

There are designs that, in the course of designing loft bed for every kid in the home, mini rooms are created from the already existing kids’ room. There are seats and possibly, tables underneath each loft bed with stairs leading up the beds. For rooms with tall ceilings, elaborate detailing and dedicated wall lights can be added. Some shelving can also be added to create storage spaces within the lofts.

Rustic design:

If your kids enjoy a natural or rustic appeal, then consider a loft that offers these same amenities.  Try displaying these touches in the stairs and the railings protecting the loft beds. Should there be any free standing furniture around the space, such should also be made with rustic wood to complement the whole look of the space. The bedding should be of such texture and design that tie in with the theme of the room.
