Provided you're not intimidated by the idea of ladder climbing, a loft bed is one of the very best ways to make the most of a really, really small space. The only difficulty is that, if you're not up for creating a loft bed yourself, finding one that's not meant for kids (doesn't look like a tree house, tall enough for an adult to move under) can be a bit of a challenge. But fear not — we did the work for you and dug up these 11 great options!
This very basic loft bed comes at a very friendly price, but it's a twin, so your sleepovers might be a bit cozy.
A simple, basic loft bed that will fit nicely into the design of a modern space.
IKEA also makes this full-sized loft bed frame, which is suitable for all kinds of interiors.
If a study space is what you're after, this bed's built-in desk will be a real plus. Ladders on two different sides of the bed allow for maximum versatility.
Another twin-sized bed, but if you don't mind the size, the storage elements (and the included desk, which can be arranged in a variety of positions) make this a strong contender.
Eagle-eyed readers will note that this is very similar to the first bed we listed above, just with a desk underneath, which I imagine makes it sturdier. Also available in white.
Nice and sturdy looking, with a weight capacity of 750 pounds. Also available in birch and black.
The listing states that you will need a drill to put this together (and may have to drill a few secondary holes), but this was the only loft bed I could find that is available in queen size. It's also available in different heights, so you can pick the one that works best with your ceiling, and it can hold up to 1,000 pounds, much higher than some of the metal options.
The cutout pattern of the railings is a little twee, but the built-in bookcase option is nice, and the sides are completely opens, which allows for a lot of flexibility in arranging furniture underneath.
