When you live in a small space or
While small spaces are obvious candidates for the integration of a loft bed, they can save space in any type of apartment. You can use a loft bed to create a guest bedroom, a cozy nook for reading, a kids’ room, or for a home office spot.
A loft bed with integrated storage underneath the stairs
This beautiful studio apartment with white walls has an integrated loft bed on top of the small kitchen, which provides a second level for sleeping in this small space. The custom staircase to access the loft space has been fitted with white cabinet doors so this empty space can be utilized as storage.
I think this is one of those loft bed ideas where every bit of square footage has been used up in a smart way, turning a small room into a functionality-packed private space.
A pink studio apartment with a loft bed on top of a wardrobe
The loft bed in this pink living room is built on top of a walk-in wardrobe. The loft beds’ wall is painted in the same pink color, integrating it nicely into the space and creating a cozy spot next to the sofa for hanging art prints and displaying accessories.
A wooden loft bed with integrated storage space beneath
This is one of the smartest loft bed ideas in the list in my opinion, as it makes such clever use of the space available to integrate ample storage space. The loft bed integrates nicely with the kitchen module in the living space, as it’s made out of the same plywood material,
On the top level, you can find a cozy bed with integrated bookshelves in the wall, while the area on the bottom of the elevated bed integrates a rotating wardrobe and a combination of open and closed storage modules.
A beige studio apartment with an integrated loft bed
All the walls in this small space are painted in a subtle beige wall color, including the additional wall created when constructing the loft bed. This unified wall color integrates the loft bed nicely with the sitting area and I love the way the white ladder and the white details in the bed frame stand out against the beige wall color.
A tiny studio apartment with a low-level loft bed
Loft beds tend to work best if you can work in a space with high ceilings, yet if you don’t have high ceilings to work with, you can reduce the height of both levels for a more natural look.
The sofa area beneath the loft bed is low, yet a very cozy place has been created with a built-in bookshelf and a space for the TV. Imagine this space without the extra room created by the loft beds’ integration: you would need to compromise the sofa for the bed to be able to fit a small bed in the living area.
A pink loft bed with an elaborate staircase
This beautiful loft bed takes advantage of the area underneath the custom staircase to the fullest, integrating a wide plethora of additional storage options. The area underneath the loft bed includes a dining table, which can also be used as a desk during work hours.

A loft bed on top of the kitchen
On top of the white kitchen built-ins in this apartment with black walls, you can find a wall-to-wall loft bed that integrates an entire bedroom with storage opportunities.
Even though this is one of those loft bed ideas for which you would definitely need a contractor and a lot of ceiling height, the result opens up the living space in such a crucial way, allowing both levels to be able to take advantage of the daylight coming in through those large windows.
A small loft bed on top of a walk-in-closet
The bed frame of this loft bed is simple, as the white walls on each side have been used to support the bed itself. With the addition of a simple ladder, a second level is created for the bed, allowing the space underneath to be used for a walk-in-closet.
A wall-to-wall loft space above the dining room
Another one of those loft bed ideas that are constructed with the help of a contractor, opening up the space and allowing the area above the dining area to be used as an additional bedroom space.
All walls, floors, and ceilings are painted white in this stylish apartment, including the loft bed stairs and banister, which gives the apartment a larger appearance and ensures the light coming from one side of the apartment is reflected on every surface.
