Camaflexi Low Loft Storage Bed - Mission Headboard

When you are low on space, loft beds and bunk beds with under-the-bed storage are a smart way to keep everything organized. From dressers to pull out drawers, there’s an option for every family. Discover the possibilities in this loft bed and bunk bed with storage buying guide.

What type of bed do you need?

Before looking at storage solutions, consider whether your family needs a bunk bed or a loft bed. Both are great options, but floor space can be a problem if you need to accommodate more than one child. Be sure to take measurements before buying a bunk or loft bed.

If you have the floor space, putting two low loft beds side-by-side will provide each child with their own personal space and provide more storage. Bunk beds on the other hand, optimize space small bedrooms, but there will be less storage available.

No matter which type of bed you decide to go for, make sure to leave at least two feet of space between the top of the bunk bed and your ceiling.

How much storage do you need?

The storage features on Planet Bunk Bed’s loft beds and bunk beds provide convenient ways to make the most of your space.

Bunk Beds with Under-the-Bed Drawers

When you need to maximize sleeping space and storage for your children, bunk beds with pull out drawers are the way to go. Although the storage space is the same, ladder styles are important.

There are two types of ladder to consider: The end and the front ladder. Both are wide step ladders and safety guard rails are interchangeable so you can position the ladder where you need it.

End Ladder: In this set up, the ladder is attached to the end of the bed as opposed to the front. This provides better access to the lower bunk, and is easier for children to use.

Front Ladder: With the front ladder set up, the ladder is attached to the front of the bed. This type of ladder is perfect when space near the end of the bed is tight, but it does create a minor limitation in accessing the bottom bunk.

Low Loft Beds With Dressers

When you need the most space for storage, low loft beds with dressers will give you what you need. Unlike the bunk bed ladders, the ladder style you select will affect how much storage you’ll get.

There are two types of ladders to consider: The end and front ladder. Both types of ladders extra deep, grooved steps, and just like the bunk bed ladders, the guardrails and ladders are interchangeable.

End Ladder: The end ladder set up optimizes under the bed storage. With a solid wood drawer dresser and a 3-drawer chest that runs the entire length of the bed, you’ll have plenty of storage space.

Front Ladder: If you don’t have room for an end ladder, or you prefer the look of a front ladder, there is still plenty space for storage with a slightly smaller 3-drawer dresser and 3-drawer dresser chest. It’s the perfect combination of style and functionality.
