Do you live in a tiny apartment? You’re looking to create more space, but have no ideas? When square footage is tights, you’ve got to use your imagination to create functional living space without clutter. One of the biggest challenges is where to place large furniture that you cannot live without, such as the bed. From classic loft beds to stunning bed designs suspended from the ceiling, there is no shortage of smart solutions that can maximize your living space.
For your inspiration and a home improvement, here are 12 Awesome Beds in tiny spaces. I would say – apartment geeks:
Bed Hanging From the Ceiling
This adventurous idea is not for the faint-hearted :). One great way to open up a small place – hang your bed from the ceiling! You will not only have a unique sleep experience, but also free up a ton of space on the floor. However, its very important to make sure that the ceiling is properly reinforced and can carry the extra load.
Also, you should not attempt this installation before you repair any crack or any other problems your ceiling may have. Be careful executing this installation on your own, unless you are an expert DIYer. To be safe, hire a contractor to do this unique project for you.
The Living Cube
If you don’t have enough space in your bedroom for your desk, clothes, etc, you can use your bed for storage. And, no, we don’t mean throw everything on your bed and hope to find it... We mean a brilliant, space-saving invention – a bed that is actually a living cube! You have everything you need here – an entertainment center with TV and books, closet with clothes and shoes and your bed on top! Perfect!
Bed in the Air
This awesome apartment is located in Camden, London. Who cares if it’s tiny, it looks amazing with this bed hanging in the air! And the best part is that it’s just a few feet below a huge skylight, thanks to a wrought iron basket mounted to the ceiling, so you can wake up with the sun.
Cool Bunk Beds
If you have a bunch of kids that are sharing a room, the best space-saving solution is to put in bunk beds. Even in a small room, you can manage to put at least 2 bunk beds. They are available in a variety of materials colors, and finishes, and can add a cool stylish flair to the room. The bunk beds in this photo boast a simple yet sophisticated aesthetic.
