Will a Loft Bed Cramp My Small Space?

Good Questions

Q: I just signed on a VERY small (less than 300 square feet) studio in Jerusalem, Israel. I'm obviously trying to maximize functionality and space, so I had the idea of getting a loft bed so I could use the space under it for seating/storage. My friends are concerned that because the space is so small, the loft bed will actually just cramp it and make it feel even worse than if I just stick a bed in there and work around it. Are there times when a loft bed is a bad idea? Should I just accept my small space and cramp away??
