Low Loft Bed Ideas For Lofts With Slanted Ceilings

When there are slanted ceilings in your loft conversion, a low loft bed will be needed. These loft beds sit close to the ground so you can maximize the space in the room. If you have a standard sized bed, or even a bunk bed, it will have to be pulled out away from the wall a considerable distance so you have enough head room. This will mean that there is a lot of wasted space. Here are a few low loft bed ideas if you have slanted ceilings.

Platform Bed

This type of bed does not sit on a frame. It sits on a small platform that is built with lumber and plywood as the base. You can set the mattress directly on to the platform instead of having to use a box spring mattress. This will save you at least 12 to 18 inches of space.

L-Shaped Bunk Beds

For a loft that is built for two kids, you can have an L-shaped bunk bed that has one bed extruding from underneath the top bed. These beds are lined up against a straight wall with the foot of the bed facing the slanted ceiling.

Trundle Bed

A trundle bed is a little smaller than a twin mattress and it is on wheels. These beds can be easily moved when not in use and are most common in lofts where the slant of the ceiling is gradual.
