I Love Loft
With my love of small living spaces comes my love of creative small living space solutions. Since I saw Ikea's full size loft bed in the store's tiny 500-ish sq ft apartment model, I've been wanting to incorporate the space-saving loft idea in our apartment somehow. But Hudson often crawls into bed with us when he gets up in the morning and nothing spells disaster like a groggy three-year-old and a 6-foot ladder.
So I freaked out today when I saw this post on Ohdeedoh.com. How cool are these rooms?! We're TOTALLY going to use these ideas in Hudson and Jude's room. Weighing in at a hearty 22lbs, Jude is READY to move out of his little bassinet and into a crib in Hudson's room. (the poor kid can't even straighten out his legs in that thing). But til today I wasn't sure how we'd be able to fit two beds + toys + clothes + bikes in that little bedroom and still have room to walk and play in there.
For us grown-ups, I love low-to-the-floor beds but don't love how much room they take up. And since our bedroom houses, not only our clothes and bedroomy stuff, but all our art/craft supplies as well, we need a lot of storage space. Something like this would totally work. Just roll the bed under the platform during the day and TADA! look how much space it saves!
