A loft bed is a bed that is raised off of the ground and is the type of bed that is often found in college dormitories with the intention of maximizing the space within the room. How this is done is that when the bed is raised off of the floor, belongings can be stored under the bed instead of throughout the room. Since many of the belongings of college students end up under the bed anyway, having a loft bed is a great idea. However, loft beds are not only used in college dorms, but are also used in the bedrooms of both adults and children. Basically what it comes down to is that a loft bed is a bed with long legs. A good loft bed will ensure that the frame is stable. Such is true when a regular bed is being converted into a loft bed, but when embarking on such an endeavor, it is better to have a professional do the job. But whether the bed is purchased as a loft bed or it is a regular bed converted into a loft bed, the actual results in elevating the bed opens up a world of possibilities for the room. Desks can be placed under loft beds as can dressers. Some have even been known to place the loft bed in front of a closet so that the closet can be accessed from under the bed. There's no doubt that the creative possibilities are endless, but in the end it is the space that is saved that matters.
