How To DIY A Loft Bed To Maximize Your Bedroom Space And Storage

One problem with the Kallax option is that the cabinets aren’t designed to hold more than 55 pounds. And, while Amber van der Veen shared that her bed had held up without incident, not everyone is willing to take the risk. That brings us to the second option for a loft bed — and if you’re low on space for a study nook or hangout spot, you may prefer this anyway. We’re talking about the kind of loft bed where the space beneath becomes whatever you want it to be.

Start by checking the dimensions of your bed. Then, build a frame using lumber. This should be as sturdy as possible with diagonal supports on the sides and back of the bed. TikToker @mossbats filmed her partner hanging from the frame to test just how robust the frame was before moving on to the next steps — that’s how robust it should be. Finish off with bed slats (around $44 on Amazon) and add on a ladder so you can get in and out. The ladder that you pick should depend on your style preference and height of the bed, but Amazon offers collapsible options for $99.95. 

Once you’re done with the frame, how you use the space underneath the loft bed is up to you. You can add a desk, or even turn it into a Netflix watching spot. Just remember to watch your head as you get in and out.
