Wooden loft beds (and loft beds in general) have become increasingly popular for both kids and adults over the last few years. But, what makes a great loft bed? For one, plenty of space below the mattress for storage, studying, or entertainment. Additionally, easy assembly is another essential. However, what customers also really want are trendy styles and high value for the materials used. Good loft bed brands provide sturdy, practical, and easy to assemble products that are stylish, all for a lower price for the materials.
That said, not all great loft beds are bargains, which is why we have selected a range of brands that have excellent feedback from customers, some that are lower cost and some that offer higher-end quality.

When it comes to finding the best loft beds, the best options are sturdy, styled-well, price-competitive, and are loved by customers. However, those brands that you may want to think twice about include those without transparent customer reviews or with complaints about returns.
Sturdy construction with a beautiful design.
The service was great and the bed works perfect for what I purchased it for!! My son Loves it!!!
very sturdy and functional.
Very good quality and beutif beyond my expectations
Our daughter loves this bed so far. We just put it up. I would give it more stars but there are 2 things that I don’t like. First is it stinks!!!! Our whole house smells. You could smell it while still in the box. Not sure if it’s the varnish or what. The 2nd thing is that the wood is not smooth. It is very rough as if it wasn’t sanded at all. I see plenty of splinters in our future. We can’t sand it since we got the espresso color so hopefully we’ll be able to find some sort of clear coat to use....Read More
My daughter loves it! Very durable and well made! Assembly was easy too.
This bed is sturdy and solid. We bought it as an investment to allow our 7-year-old son to have something to use well into his teen years, and after assembling it and using it for a couple of weeks, I feel good that the quality will sustain him for that length of time. I love the driftwood finish, as it provides a nice variation from the typical furniture color options. Our son loves sleeping up high and having his own desk space underneath, and we love not only the desk space but also the drawer storage for clothes. A few other random notes: 1. My son has a smaller room, and although this takes up a decent amount of real estate in the room, it extends his space by providing a bed, desk, and chest in one piece. 2. The amount of desk space easily fits one chair and could even fit a second. 3. The bed has horizontal slats and a vertical slat that runs down the center, which allows it to support a mattress without a box spring. 4. The bed ships in six boxes and takes a while to arrive since it has to be sent as ground freight. 5. When it comes to assembly, although it's not difficult to understand how to put the pieces together, it took two of us about 2 hours to put it together. The only problem we experienced was that one of the pieces arrived damaged. Wayfair was great about replacing it, although it took a while to get the replacement due to the ground shipping requirement. As for the actual bed itself, though, we are very pleased with it....Read More
Ordering was easy! Still didn’t receive product but so far so good
Durable and solid.
This loft bed is amazing! Our 7 year old daughter LOVES it! Just disappointed that the chair was not included in the purchase.
Very good product for the price.
This bed and desk is as it looks, We set it up within a couple hours and our daughter loves it. A great buy if your looking for a loft with desk combo!
My son really loves this bed. It is sturdy and looks sharp.
Beautiful, clean design. My son loves it. Arrrived damaged, but Wayfair’s Customer Sevice was fabulous, and I had a whole new bed in no time-I am very impressed.
Great look for bedroom, creates lots of space. Desk good size.
Perfect height and versatile style for elementary kids! My daughter has it now, but may give it to son in a couple years! Well made and very solid framework.
Beautiful end result
The loft is cute, and it was much easier to assemble than I thought. I did this on my own, with the “help” of two of my three small children, and it took me about 3.5 hours. The only thing I am not super thrilled about is that it feels wobbly and less sturdy than I anticipated. I guess we’ll see how it goes!
It’s a super cute bed and if the room is small it definitely helps with space. My 4 yo loves the bed
Missing correct screws to attach ladder to bed. Nice bed aside from missing peices.
purchased this for my 4yrs old, perfect size,we made a small fort under the loft, its super fun for him, and the size make me feel comfortable for the fact its not super high off the ground, I do suggest 2 people for assembly
Easy to put together. Great color. Looks sleek. Good product.
This bed is made of solid wood and is of excellent quality for the price. The instructions are very clear, and my husband was able to assemble two of them in under five hours. Our 5 12 year old twins adore their new big kid beds! Lots of room to play underneath (about 30” clearance), and not so high that they get scared. I would absolutely recommend this product!
Beautiful bed! It took my husband several hours to put together. It is a bit higher than I thought it would be but doesnt seem yo be an issue for my 4 year old. Well worth the time it took to assemble. It seems very sturdy and my daughter is very excited about her new big girl bed. Perfect for the small space of her room and we are creating a reading nook underneath. No isses with shipping and delivery was quick. Highly recommend.
this is made for 6" mattress which seems ridiculous..we had to make some additions to the frame for safety since our mattress is 12"
We love this bed! We needed something for our almost 5 year old daughter that would make me and her happy. She wanted a bunk bed, but that made me nervous. This is enough of one to make us both happy, plus it gives us added storage space in her room. She’s super excited about it!
My 5 year old son loves his new “big boy bed” and there is Enough space underneath to play
Good quality and the perfect height for my 9 year old.
It's A nice bed and don't definitely a space saver. I absolutely did not like that none of the wood had labels to let me know which part was which. It was a task putting the bed and other parts together.
Looks really good, directions could of been a little better, But my daughter loves her new bed.
Arrived on time. Perfect for toddler to pre-schooler boy. Rail should be taller. Assembly OK for this unskilled, few tools purchaser. Interested to see if it lasts 8 to9 years under the assault of a hyper active pre-teen boy.
My daughter LOVES this bed! It’s really sturdy, and lots of fun.
The compact nature and organization. My granddaughter loves it!
Love it!!! Perfect for my sons small room.
We got this for our 3 year old in order to create more space. It has worked perfect for her. We didn't build the desk just yet and use under the bed for storage.
Excellent quality It took a long time to put together but the finished product was well worth it
We really like it. Wish it was a touch sturdier. Kind of wobbly while getting in and out.
The quality is good and we love the look. And the instructions were clear. However, the customization ability is lacking. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.
perfect for elementary school kids
Love this bed. Took awhile to together but nice quality
easy to put together and looks great
My son loves his new bed and it’s great for a smaller room but the desk is hard to pull out and the dresser drawers are not even. Aside from that, it looks nice
Everyone asks us where we bought this! Our daughter loves it too.
Perfect for my 3yr old grandson.Sturdy enought to last for years.
Daughter loves it! Took about 1.5 hours to put together with the kids ‘helping’.
