There are plenty of cheap loft beds with desk on the market today for kids, but not very many options for adults or teens. There are a few things to keep in mind for those of you who are looking for loft beds that will suit your needs. There is a big difference between loft beds for kids and loft beds for adults or teens. The most obvious being the ability to hold your extra weight! This not only applies to the weight limit specification for the bed itself, but for the ladder also.
For all you adults and teens out there, make sure you do your research before you buy! Here are a few things to look for when shopping for a full size loft bed with desk:
Weight Capacity is Important!
A good quality adult loft bed with desk should have a minimum weight rating of 200-250 lbs. This weight rating includes the specification for the ladder as well. If you’re unsure, contact the seller or the manufacturer directly and request a brochure that lists the specifications.
Make Sure You’re Getting a Full Size Loft bed with Desk – Not a Twin!
The common mistake that most adults and teens make is that they assume a twin will be large enough for their needs. While most adults might be content with this size, most twin size cheap loft beds for kids are specifically designed for kids only – and that includes their weight rating. In most cases, a twin sized metal loft bed will not last very long if used by an adult.
While we like to stretch our dollar as far as we possibly can, it’s important that you find a good, sturdy loft bed that will last you a while. There are some really cheap loft beds out there today that are very poor quality, and not manufactured with safety in mind. Many of these loft bunk beds are similar in design to more popular loft beds (if not identical) but lack in quality, such as; lack of bracing, thin metal frames, poorly constructed welds, poor quality hardware and difficult to assemble (parts missing, misaligned holes for hardware, etc).
One word of advice – spend the few extra dollars and buy something that’s been purchased, tested and reviewed by other adult loft bed buyers – you won’t regret it!
