Renovating a loft space to add an extra bedroom is a great idea, adding value to your home and making the most out of the space you have available. However getting the most out of that space can be a little tricky!
Things to consider when designing your loft bedroom:
Access – make sure that all your furniture is self-assembly (unless you are lucky enough to have a wide open staircase to your loft!)
Room height – if you have a low ceiling, choose a low bed. It will increase the sense of space in the room and the actual space above your bed! Choosing low bedroom furniture is also a good idea – keep everything in proportion and you will achieve a coherent, sophisticated loft.
Room size – if space is tight, it makes sense to pick a bed design with a compact footprint. A number of our beds can be made without a headboard and have the same footprint as the mattress – take a look at our Kyoto and Kumo beds.
Our loft bed collection:
At the Natural Bed Company we offer a wide range of designs perfect for loft spaces where the slope of the roof or the positioning of a window can limit the height of your bed.
Our Kyoto, Kumo and Kobe low beds, available with or without a headboard offer a Japanese style solution to the problem. If you with to make the most of the room space, the Kyoto can accommodate up to four under-bed drawers, making your loft or attic the perfect guest room and, when family and friends aren’t visiting, a great storage space.
The Oregon, Kulu and Koo are worth a look if you wish to make a statement or if the loft is to be used as a main bedroom. The Koo is part of our Choose Your Colour range, allowing you to pick absolutely any colour for the headboard (the frame is in solid oak or walnut). Just let us know the Pantone, Dulux or Ral reference number for the colour and we’ll order it in.
If you require a mattress to go with your new loft bed, you’ll be happy to know that all options, excluding the Craft sprung mattresses and futons, are delivered rolled and vacuum packed allowing easy manoeuvrability around the most winding of staircases! Most of the mattresses in our range are between 16-20cm, this means that even with a narrow headboard panel (see the Nevada) the headboard will not be lost behind pillows or look out of proportion.
Don’t forget to view our range of bedside tables designed to complement the beds in our range. The Cube, Kyoto and Nevada tables are the perfect size for any loft or attic. Look out for our new blog on our new Cube table range which will be live on the website soon!
