Wooden loft bed with desk-If your bedroom space is tight and you want an innovative way to fit a bed and a desk, a wooden loft bed with desk may be the ideal solution. Students live in cramped dorm rooms have long been mounted on their beds. Building your own loft bed is a moderately easy project, be sure to follow basic procedures carefully to ensure robust construction.
Take into account the room where you will build the bed. You will probably want to allow about three feet of space between the bed and the ceiling. Something harder and you may find it uncomfortable to get in and out of bed. If the ceiling is lower than 8 feet, you might want to reconsider building a wooden loft bed with desk in this room. You can consider a lower version with drawers under the bed, and place the desktop elsewhere. If the roof is at least 8 feet, you can expect plenty of space above the bed.
Measure a generous space of about 80 40 inches where you should put the bed. Be sure that no windows or doors disrupt this space. (You may actually want to have a window above or under the bed, in that case, however, certain it is adjusted according to your preferences.)
Check that the mattress you are using is a twin, measuring approximately 38 x 76 inches. It is certainly possible to build a loft on mattresses in different sizes; you will need to adjust the instructions. Double check the lengths of all the debris and the number of screws and bolts. Continue to “measure twice and cut once” during the entire project.
