Mezzanine bed for the development of the small apartment
A raised bed in a small apartment can create more storage space and for activities at a time. This practical piece of furniture divides the area horizontally into two parts to ensure a little privacy at the top and a reading area, sitting area or home office downstairs. Discover all about the adult loft bed and take a look at the great pictures in the article below!
What is an adult loft bed?
We already know the basic principle thanks to the bunk beds we see especially in children’s rooms. There are, however, some small differences that should be mentioned. First, the adult mezzanine can be equipped with a mattress, one or two seats, depending on the needs of the user or users and the size of the room. Second, and most importantly, the mezzanine bed usually consists of a raised bed that leaves the space underneath free or, most often- equipped with a desk. Of course, there is also a comfortable sofa for a seating area, an armchair or a chaise-longue, combined with an interior floor lamp, to create a reading corner or use the space as a wardrobe , bookcase and even kitchenette ! Examine all possibilities below.
Adult Mezzanine Bed – Benefits and Versions
The major advantage of the bunk beds and the mezzanine bed is obvious. The loft mezzanine has become one of the most popular ways to save space in small urban apartments. Many modern studios in megacities around the world benefit from this type of functional furniture or one of its similar variants such as the retractable bed on the ceiling or the bed hanging from the ceiling, for example.

Another functional option not to be underestimated is the addition of a sofa below the adult mezzanine bed. It is an ideal solution for open-concept micro-studios where a living room and a bedroom must be set up on a very limited area of about twenty or thirty square meters. An apartment rented for the needs of a student could also benefit from this proposal gaining space.
The raised adult bed in the context of high-end architecture
But a platform perched high and intended for sleeping adults can also look very exclusive. Especially in the context of an architect’s apartment offering many cunning design and decoration solutions. Such is the case of the luxurious villa illustrated above which is dominated by blond wood and which takes maximum advantage of the space by the vertical. Note also the rail ladder providing easy access and mezzanine bed, and storage on both sides.

Another truly admirable example is the double suspended ceiling bed that can be seen in the picture above. Its metal support perfectly matches the rack of the winding staircase and the black steel beams just above. The London house where it is located shows that everything is possible when one tries to perceive the architectural disadvantages as artistic conceptual opportunities!
Retractable ceiling bed for modern micro-studios
When the surface is reduced to the absolute minimum, one must explore all possibilities and resort to “extreme” measures. A retractable ceiling bed is one of the best ways to save space, as long as you can afford it. The white model above is barely visible in the high position and at the same time easily accessible when lowered. Its mechanisms allow a stop midway which means that you do not have to move the furniture below.

If the platform in question does not exist, the services of a professional builder must always be used to erect it. The structure presented above is equipped with a railing, for security reasons, and its lower part is advantageously equipped with recessed spots that can illuminate well the living area and the home office built directly below.
