Loft bed buying guide: tips for choosing

The time has come, you are going to choose a loft bed, but now the right one! It is important to pay attention to a number of points before you make your final choice, pay particular attention to:

Your space and the sizes of the bed

Measure the room carefully; does the loft bed of your dreams actually fit?

Have you also thought about any cupboard doors that need to be opened, the space to climb the stairs and do you have enough space to make the bed?

Is the ceiling of the room high enough? For most loft beds you need a ceiling height of 240cm.

Safety

Safety is even more important when your (children's) bed is high off the ground.

Does your loft bed meet the European safety standard for loft beds? If you buy this at a Dutch store, certainly.

Stability

Preferably choose a sturdy loft bed that does not wobble too much. Some loft beds can also be mounted on the wall.

What age do you choose the loft bed for

The really 'high loft beds' are suitable for children older than 6 years. Then they are big enough to climb in and out of bed safely.

(Multi) functionality

If there is a lack of space, a multifunctional loft bed is very nice, there are plenty of cool loft beds to be found, also with a bed and/or a desk and cupboard underneath!

With that in mind, let's go check out my favorite loft beds. What makes this one so good and when should you consider which one?

Best-loft-bed-with-desk-and-extra-bed-The-King of the beds-Coco-Bunk bed

(see more images)

Loft bed Coco is actually more than a multifunctional loft bed, it is a complete children's room, for two children! It is therefore difficult to find a comparable model.

Coco has a desk with drawer unit and under the steps are cupboards, including a children's clothing wardrobe.

Although Coco is space-saving and has many practical storage options, the space in the cupboards is probably not enough for two children. The beds come with a slatted base.

My urgent advice: measure your space very well in advance and take into account the tilt of the bed during assembly!

  • Weight loft bed: 285 kg
  • Functionality: Combination of bed, desk, cupboards and guest bed or as a complete room for two children.

The Thuka loft bed with sofa comes from the Danish quality brand Thuka.

This Thuka loft bed has a desk, storage space and comes with a cushion set for the sofa, it is simple, very practical and creates extra space to live.

If you prefer not to have gray cushions, you can always go for blue or pink cushion sets. The desk measures W86 x H75 x D95 cm.

Next to the sofa/2nd bed is the storage space with lid, great for putting bed linen in.

Thuka recommends that you also purchase the slatted frame from them, because it, like the loft bed itself, has been safety tested and meets European safety standards.

As fond of scaffolding wood as I am? Loft bed Noortje from Wood4you is made of aged scaffolding wood and will adorn any room with its sturdy look.

The bed is supplied as an assembly kit, but fortunately the panels are already assembled and sanded smooth.

The price is fine, but you only have a loft bed, without other features such as a desk or cupboards, etc.: just like this Mezzanine Eliot 90 x 190 cm.

The Mezzanine Eliot is 25 cm higher than the Noortje loft bed and made of black metal with a cool industrial look.

Best-loft-bed-with-slide-WICKEY-CrAzY-Hutty-cot

(view more images)

The Wickey Crazy Hutty is great for kids to create their own little play world with brother, boyfriend or sister, to play together on or under this bed, to slide or to chill.

Simply the nicest loft bed with slide!

The cabin is complete with a telephone and binoculars, steering wheel and rope ladder. The bed is made of Norwegian untreated pine wood and has a sturdy construction.

Under the bed is a nice spot with 2 hanging chairs. Furthermore, a washable tarpaulin is included for drawing on and sticker film.

De slide is 175 cm long. This loft bed can also be mounted as a mirror image, see the detailed installation manual.

Just like the Charlotte Treehouse semi-high bed, the Wickey is a great playground for kids.

The Charlotte is a bit simpler and in my opinion the Charlotte looks nicer in the nursery than the Wickey, but is a bit more expensive.

Pros

  • Entire construction is made of solid wood
  • Complete play hut

Cons

  • Woodworking experience recommended when assembling, due to the angled design (fortunately, the whole package is pre-drilled)

Features

  • Dimensions: L224 x W90 cm

  • Loadable weight: 50 kg

  • Functionality: Bed, extended play area
  • Material: Norwegian Pine Wood
  • Lying surface: 90×200 cm

DIY loft bed from scaffolding tube

What also seems very cool to me is a loft bed made of scaffolding tube. You can get started with this yourself and make a great sturdy loft bed of tubes on legs. Complete with a ladder made of scaffolding tube to climb into bed.

A lot of tube couplings are used in a loft bed construction, so the cost price still rises considerably. Scaffolding planks or a standard size slatted base can be used as bed base.

Working with scaffolding tubes is very easy. The pipe couplings are firmly clamped with an Allen screw.

Such a construction of scaffolding tubes has the advantage that it is always easy to disassemble or adjust, which is also useful if you make a mistake.

There are many different types and diameters in scaffolding tubes for sale, you can actually realize any project with it!

The tubes are, for example, available in stainless steel, aluminum or in (black) steel, round or square.

Before you start, the pipes must be cut to size. After that, you only need an Allen key for mounting.
