Think about it — the single most floor-hogging piece of furniture in a small apartment is the bed. The good news is that you can free up a ton of space for daytime activities by raising up your bed and making room for other stuff underneath it. While some of you may be lucky enough to have an apartment with a built-in loft (we’re jealous), in this post we’re focusing on homes with loft beds that you can either buy or DIY, so even renters can find some inspiration for transforming their space.
