A Loft Bed is a great alternative to bunk beds for those who want more privacy, storage space, and head clearance. Bunk beds are lower to the floor than a loft bed so they take up less space in your room. A bunk bed also has more foot room underneath which can be used as extra storage or seating area. Loft beds provide an additional sleeping surface but require some assembly upon delivery. Bunk beds do not offer much under-bed storage and may be difficult for taller people to climb into if you live in a smaller home without stairs to access the top bunk. However, there are many benefits of having both types of beds.
