Logan Square Condo Lofted BedroomContemporary Bedroom, Chicago
Behind the central wall in the home is the private zone of the condo. A queen-sized bed is lofted over a built-in desk, bookshelves, laundry, and closet. Plumbing pipe ladders on either side of the bed make for easy ascent and descent from the loft, as well as additional storage for decorative bedding.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
This loft bed is built on top of bookshelves and a desk area, creating two zones out of one physical space. If you own your apartment, you could certainly hire a designer to create a built-in loft that works for you. If you rent, there are many standalone loft bed kits available for purchase that don’t require any structural change to the space. Just be sure that you either have the skills — or get help from someone who does — to ensure that your lofted bed will be safe and stable.
7. Go big on underbed storage. If you have the height, try raising your bed to capitalize on the space beneath. You could fit in bookshelves, a desk or even a clothes rod. You might decide to go for a built-in option, or there are plenty of stylish off-the-shelf cabin beds available nowadays — perfect for teens.
