Loft beds

Loft beds are fun. They turn a good night’s sleep almost into a little holiday. Just climb up the ladder, leave the everyday world behind and curl up in dreamland. Our loft beds are practical, too. They save you space because you can fit a desk, storage or even some seating underneath them.

Loft beds are the go-to solution for those with small bedrooms or small apartments. Most of us love our bed as much as we dislike the amount of precious floor space it takes up. Sometimes the loftiest ideas are the best; introduce a high-quality loft bed into your home to free up the maximum amount of space below. A loft bed is a bed frame that elevates the mattress high off the floor, with a ladder that lets you climb your way up to sleep.    

Different kinds of loft beds 

In all loft beds the sleeping area is elevated, so you can use the space beneath for any number of fun or practical purposes. But while each loft bed shares this function, they do differ in design, style and – most importantly – the amount of space provided beneath.  

At IKEA, we’ve simplified some decisions for you. You’ll find loft beds with a built-in desk underneath, and loft beds with clever storage solutions such as drawers and cupboards. Our ready-built bed storage solutions make maximum use of the space underneath, since the dimensions are made to fit perfectly. Meanwhile, you don’t have to worry about pairing two pieces of furniture – these styles are designed to match.  

But if you want a loft bed with an empty space beneath, then you’ll find that too. The advantage is obvious – you can decide precisely what you want to store beneath, from a gorgeous bookshelf to a cosy armchair corner. You can even create your own desk for studying or working to place beneath the loft bed – and then in the future use the space for something completely different.   

Full size loft bed 

Most of our loft beds fit a 90 cm wide mattress. This size works for adults, teenagers and most adults. Some customers may prefer a bigger loft bed with a wider mattress. If so, STORÅ loft bed has space for a 140 cm mattress so you can spread out fully. 

Mattresses are sold separately. This allows you to choose the mattress type best suited to you, providing the mattress size dimensions fit the loft bed frame.
