Although there are numerous good looking bunkbeds and loft beds for sale these days, the ultimate flexibility comes only with doing something custom. Whether you hire a professional or give it a go yourself, constructing a loft bed can be easier than you think.

The simplicity of this two-tiered bed has us drawing up plans ourselves. The top "bunk" is a sturdy, floating wood-slat platform. The bed beneath simply sits on the floor. Storage at the foot of the bed adds to the built-in look. The result is a high-end look that could be relatively easy to replicate. For more photos of this room, check out The Selby.
