Ikea Stora loft bed for small space living.

After much research I decided on the Stora bed from Ikea.  It was simple enough to assemble and much taller than I expected.  There is enough room for me to stand up easily underneath as well as my desk and shelves and my make up bits and bobs.  The space I live in is tiny but tall so a loft bed was the perfect solution.  The bed is a double – which is perfect- and adds space to the room.

I bought two and half meters of floral fabric from ikea also and I use it to cover the alcove behind the bed.  It works as a kind of headboard and a curtain to hide my clothes.  I have shelves in behind them as well as hooks in the wall to hang clothes from.  It keeps the bedroom/dressing room area separate from the living area so it seems less a bedroom and more a living space.

I love it!  The child in me loves the ‘princess bed’ and the grown-up version of the bunk bed I had always wanted.  If you want to try the bed for yourself it is the Stora Loft Bed from Ikea and it comes in black and white.
