Using a Loft for Storage Instead of Sleep?

Good Questions

Q: I have a 3-year-old son and live in a small apartment. I would like to put in a lofted bed to better utilize space, but I am worried about him falling off the bed, even with gates. Has anyone used the loft for storage and the area underneath for the bed? I'm looking for any and all ideas.

Editor: The photo above is a great lofted bed project that Cathy shared with us, but you get the idea. Has anyone used a lofted space for storage rather than for sleeping?
