The loft bed is a unique type of bunk bed that typically consists of two beds stacked vertically, giving kids an extra space to play or study. Loft beds are perfect for small rooms because they save you floor space while providing another sleeping level. Furthermore, because the loft bed gives your kid more privacy, it also helps him stay off his iPad games. What’s not so great about it? You need to build one yourself.

‘Do It Yourself’ may be difficult sometimes but if you try hard enough you can get something done automagically .
