If your kid’s room is small in size and cramped, one way to solve this issue is to get them a high sleeper bed. A high sleeper (or loft bed), fits a single size mattress, however it is elevated above the ground providing extra space underneath. This way you can place a desk, storage shelves, chest of drawers underneath, or even a small wardrobe and utilize the space more effectively.
How to Choose a Metal High Sleeper Bed?
- When shopping for a metal loft bed, make sure you check the dimensions and size of the bed, so you’re sure it will fit properly.
- Most importantly check the height of your ceiling, so you are sure that there is enough space for your child to move and sleep freely on the top bunk.
- Another tip is to check what the is the underbed clearance (between the floor and the loft). This will give you an idea if your child can stand up freely, and will have enough room to study and play.
