The junior loft bed will provide a cool alternative to a normal bed because it is slightly more elevated and requires the sleeper to climb a two step ladder in order to get into bed. Plus, many junior lofts offer storage space underneath the bed. This space sometimes includes built-in dressers, open shelves, and cabinets with sliding doors.
Junior Loft vs. Loft Bed
The Age of Reason
Before you throw out that crib or bassinet, you'll certainly want to consider if your child is old enough for a junior loft bed. Remember that the junior loft bed is slightly elevated and a two step ladder is needed to climb into it. This slight increase in elevation and the mode of getting into bed could pose some dangers. Remember that when there is climbing, you can almost always count on jumping or falling. Generally, junior loft beds are not recommended for children under the age of six and probably will not be desirable after the age of 10.
