6 Stow Away Twin Loft Bed Designs 6 Stow Away Twin Loft Bed Designs

A stow away bed makes a great option for a twin loft bed as it will have built in storage needed for a smaller space. While getting a good night sleep is a major concern in choosing a twin loft bed, storage is something that is also a consideration.


Having a place where you can store clothing, shoes, jackets, or out of season garments is a major problem that many people have in small homes. In a loft, storage is at a premium and should be incorporated into the furniture you buy for the room.

Twin beds make a very good choice for lofts as they are smaller and take up less floor space than full or queen beds. Twin beds can also be made into bunk beds if you have more than one child who will be staying in the loft. Thankfully, there are several choices to choose from in stow away twin loft beds.

Trundle Bed

A trundle bed is a bed that is a little smaller than a regular twin but is on wheels and can be moved around. Combined with another trundle bed, the two will make a comfortable sleeping area. They can have a drawer underneath for stowing of luggage and extra clothes.

Sleigh Bed

A sleigh bed is a more modern looking bed that has a large headboard and a footboard that curl over in the shape of a sleigh. It can be placed on a frame that incorporates a platform with drawers and open space.

Platform Bed

A platform bed makes for a great looking loft bed. They appeal to those who want to have neat, clean lines in their room. These beds are built upon a platform instead of on a regular frame. There is no need for a box spring if you have a platform bed, and they are very comfortable. Shelving and drawers are incorporated into the bottom and sides of the platform bed.

Bunk Bed

In a loft, space is something that you need to keep a close eye on because space is usualy at a premium. Twin beds make great bunk beds and today's bunk bed designs are full of storage ideas. Bunk beds can be built with shelves, drawers, a desk, and small cubby holes where you can store your clothes, books, TV and lighting.

Sofa Bed

In order to get two pieces of furniture in one, a sofa bed is the best option. A loft is usually open to the rest of the living area, so having a bed out in the open is not something that most people want. You can stow away your loft twin bed by folding it into the sofa. Doing this, you have a comfortable place to sit and a bed that is not taking up valuable space.

Murphy Bed

A Murphy bed is another space saving, stow away bed. It simply lifts up into the wall. When the bed is in the wall, the bottom of the bed will be a part of the wall or hidden inside a cabinet. When you need the bed, simply pull the it out of the wall and place your bedding on it. After each use, you can either make the bed up or strip off the bedding before storing it in an up position.
