Written by Team Urban Tree


In today’s age of interior decoration innovations, there is a solution for every problem. Small bedrooms can be difficult to organize, taking into consideration the long list of things that this room is supposed to contain. From your favourite books to your best dresses, to other utility objects everything needs to find a place in the cosy little bedroom. So, here is a great way: why not convert your loft area into a small bedroom with plenty of storage options. Now, that would not only ease your organizing tasks but also give a stylish makeover to the house. Here’s some great loft to bedroom conversion ideas.

Idea #1: Bedroom within a Bedroom

This is a swanky solution when you want to add an extra bedroom to your house. Given the fact that your bedroom has a really tall ceiling and one of its sides can be vacated, you could build a loft bedroom within your bedroom. The second bedroom, lying in one corner of the room, should not be too tall. It should take only a couple stairs’ climb to reach the loft bedroom area. This would be a fun way of adding some extra space in an area you never thought possible. It will also be a great saviour when the guests come over to your place.

Idea #2: Lofts with Side Racks and Shelves

With high rent rates in India, individuals are often forced into living in a cramped space. But there are tons of things that one needs to store within the house. So, how to accommodate that? Well, the answer again lies in the smart use of lofts. There are many efficient loft designs that come with racks and shelves on the sides. Depending on the space you could have dozens of racks, shelves, and drawers of varying sizes. That would help you stack in a lot of your important items without really making the rooms look cluttered.

Idea #3: Lofts with Built-in Library

If you are book lover then you are sure to love this idea. There are many homeowners who just can’t allow their books to be dumped in a corner, due to space shortage. So, the modern day loft beds come with smart stairs. These stairs have built-in racks and shelves at their sides where you can arrange your books neatly and form your own library. The best part is: you can easily grab hold of your favourite books and have a read before going to sleep. Apart from the books, these racks and shelves can also be used to decorate the house. You can have a beautiful flower vase or some showpieces arranged on the shelves.

Idea #4: Lofts with underneath Closet

Any conventional Indian bedroom comes with a large closet. But given your shortage of space, you definitely cannot afford that. But we have the second best alternative ready for you. Why not install a loft bed overhead and turn the vacant space below into a large closet. Sounds great, right? There are many loft beds that would allow you to attain just this. With the loft bed installed, there will be enough space below to allow your free movement inside the closet area. You can have at least three compartment closets to store all your beautiful clothes. Now, that is a smart new way to arrange your house!

Idea #5: Lofts with Recessed Lighting

This idea is mostly applicable for living rooms. Lofts can be installed in the living room too and they would improve the overall appeal of your house. How? Well, the main part of the loft could hold all your necessary stuff and lay hidden by a veil of the most beautiful curtain. But the overhanging part of this same loft would be used to install some recessed lighting. These lightings will give a new appeal to the guest hosting area.

Idea #6: Loft Area with Home Office underneath

Again, the vacant area below the loft could be used to support your work requirements. When well-planned you could fit in a computer, printer along with all the other essential requirements for your home office. There would still be enough space to create some extra shelves directly over the computer to help you keep all those confidential files and papers. Just purchase a rolling chair and you have the perfect home office set-up ready.

Idea #7: Loft Ceiling Decoration

If the presence of a loft in your well-decorated bedroom is creating self-doubt in your mind, then let us present a great way to decorate as well as conceal the loft area. The trick lies in painting the ceiling, the right way. If you have a light tone wall color, make sure that the ceiling uses a darker hue. Once you have painted the ceiling with a dark color, use the same color over your loft area. Also, purchase an attractive hanging art and put it in front of the loft. This will draw the eyeballs towards the hanging art and not let guests focus on the loft area behind.

Idea #8: Loft stairs with Storage Spaces

When you are finding it hard to store all your items in the small apartment, the loft bed stairs could be the option. The plywood loft bed stairs can be customized to accommodate drawers within each step. These drawers can be pulled out when needed; otherwise, they remain the conventional stairs.

Loft beds are a perfect match for the modern day lifestyle. They save on space and give you full value for money. And yes, if you are worried about the guests, there are many ways of concealing them as well.
