When it comes to finding the right bed, the space you’re allotted is easily the most important factor to consider. Provided you’re not intimidated by the idea of climbing a ladder, a loft bed is one of the best ways to make the most of a really, really small space.

The Best Full-Size Loft Beds for Small Spaces

Abiding by the cardinal rule of small-space living (think vertically), loft beds lift your bed off the floor, vastly expanding the space beneath your bed. This space can then be used for everything from storage to creating a makeshift home office or dining space. The only problem? If you’re not up for creating a loft bed yourself, finding one that’s not meant for kids (i.e. one that doesn’t look like a tree house and is tall enough for an adult to move under) can be challenging. But fear not — we did the work for you and dug up 11 great options.

Clean lines and an industrial feel is what you'll get with this metal loft bed. The frame comes in neutrals like black, blue, silver, or white and seamlessly integrates with your existing decor. There's also built-in desk space that's sufficient enough to fit work essentials, from a laptop to a full desktop and accessories. Bonus: The under-bed clearance is an impressive 58 inches.

West Elm
was $2229.00

This option from West Elm doesn't look remotely childish, thanks to that sophisticated mid-century modern style. Made in collaboration with PB Teen, it includes a built-in desk so you can get the most bang for your buck.

was $901.00

Looking for something simple and budget-friendly? This bed from Wayfair is a great pick, with a built-in desk and small bookshelf for ultimate functionality. It's meant for kids, but the sleek industrial look suits adult rooms, too. Plus, it comes in three colors!

Home Depot
was $684.79

Another simple, straightforward option, this bed from Home Depot comes in two finishes and has a desk that could also be used as a vanity. The cappuccino option is great if you want a traditional, very much "adult" look, but we recommend the gray for its versatility and contemporary flair.

For something that's seriously modern and stylish, check out this cool find from Oeuf. Made of birch wood with a walnut finish, this bed is well-made, good-looking, and requires zero assembly. It's expensive, especially considering that it doesn't come with a desk or storage space, but there's no doubt it will make a statement in your small space.

PB Teen

PBTeen has a few options and most can be configured to include a desk or dresser (or both). This bed is GREENGUARD Gold Certified, and includes a desk, four drawers, and nine open shelves, making it well-suited to even the tiniest of spaces. It's expensive, but considering all you're getting, it's worth the higher cost.

was $889.00

Budget-friendly brand Mack & Milo always has stylish furniture at affordable prices, and this platform loft bed is no exception. Available in five sleek colors, this chic bed features a spacious loft area, giving you plenty of space to work or hang out.

8 / 11

Another option that doesn't have a built-in desk (although you can select to have one included at an extra cost), this bed has everything you need and nothing more. It's a good choice if you want a bare-bones option that you can personalize, and is also available in silver and white.

Of course, you can't forget about IKEA. The retailer currently only offers one full-sized loft bed, but it's a simple, streamlined option that everyone can agree on. The desk is not included with this one, so you have flexibility to use the space as an office, closet, lounge area, or whatever else you want.

PB Teen
was $3299.00

For a more traditional look, consider this bed found on PBTeen. Featuring a full-size bed, desk, and 3-drawer dresser, this is a great option for a small bedroom that can't waste any space. There are even two large open shelves, perfect for keeping your plants, books, or storage baskets, and a roll-out desk on easy-glide casters.

The ladder can be assembled to the left or right of the bed and has convenient cut-out handles for an easy grip. To truly complete the set, there's the option to purchase a detachable desk or tray.
