Indoor Treehouse

Studio Standard

For the kid who needs it all—a desk, a wardrobe, a place to play, and a spot to sleep, then look no further than ultra-convenient IKEA whose loft bed provides all of that and then some without taking up a ton of floor space.

Super Chic Studio Loft

No nook or cranny was overlooked when it came to designing this loft space—the stairs double as drawers for much-needed storage, while the bathroom and kitchen live underneath. The result is a refined and grown-up space that is perfect for older teenagers or kids living at home but will also work in the future once the kids finally leave the roost. This plan could easily turn a spare room or garage into its very own studio apartment in the future.  

Cabinet Lift

Thanks to Hamilton Snowber's clever design, built-in cabinets provide the support needed for this cozy loft bed. We love that the space underneath is maxed out with a work desk and tons of storage. 

Double Duty DIY

This general construction company solved the problem of wasted space above a stairwell with this genius built-in loft space that is bound to become everyone's favorite sleeping spot. They also cleverly added a USB port and LED lights—which good or bad, you may never see your teenager again.
