Help for a child with Allergies or Asthma
AWESOME LOFT BED!!I I
wanted to write to thank you for your work on this awesome bed. It has a great
design and was VERY easy to assemble. The bed is for my son, age 12, who suffers
terribly from allergies and asthma related to dust mites. We didn't even know
what dust mites were until 2 years ago. While trying everything to maintain
peaceful sleeping conditions for the kiddo, he just couldn't get any rest! Now
with the loft bed he is above the 'dust layer' of air and sleeps GREAT! Thanks
again for a great product, fast shipping and and a solid price for such fine
workmanship. Blessings! Pastor Bob.

Ladders - Vertical & Angled
Our loft and bunk
built in vertical ladders at each end. This gives our bed extreme
support and stability and allows you to climb up either end. We also
have Angled Ladders which may be attached to the front (long side) or at the
footboard end of the bed. The angled ladder 2x4 rungs are positioned
flat giving you a larger surface for climbing up and it is much easier on
your feet. The Angled Ladder
is pre-assembled and ready to be attach to the loft or bunk bed. It may
be installed either on the Front (long side) or at the End (footboard) and
either on the left or right.

How much headroom is above & underneath? We custom build each bed to your
exact specifications, so it depends on your ceiling height and mattress
thickness. For example, the loft bed shown on the right with the student sitting
at the desk has a 6"
mattress, 58" headroom underneath and 30" above when using an 8' ceiling. The student
is 5' 9" tall and has about 6" of space from
the top of his head to the bed slats.

I had to let you guys know your products are amazing. We got so tired of our
rough and heavy teens destroying their beds we decided to go with your beds. We
bought 2 queen bunks and a twin platform and they are all very strong and
sturdy. We’ve received many complements and we tell everyone about this
website. We are buying 2 more next year. I’ll never buy another bed from someone
else. Thank you. Elena
Over the weekend, my
nephew and I assembled the loft bed for my granddaughter. Yes, it was built by a
grandma and a 14 year old boy. The finished product is wonderful, attractive and
so sturdy. The height works so my granddaughter can sit up in bed and there is
still room underneath for her to use her desk and shelving. Considering that the
ceiling is only 7˝ feet, that was a small miracle. Love it.
I read reviews for months before buying... and your loft beds are the best!
Solid wood; beautiful design; customizable -- and a great price! I (or my
husband) can still climb into bed to read a bedtime story to the kids -- I
couldn't find any other beds this sturdy. Plus, great customer service! Thanks
so much for all your help.
I want you to know how much we love our beds!! They more than met our
expectations! They are absolutely perfect!!!! Ordered two for my boys and now
ordering another for our third son. We love them and more importantly, the boys
love them!!! Gina.
Just wanted to share that we’re enjoying the extra space provided by your
beds. Our twin boys had their previous beds on the floor. As you might imagine,
there was NO room to move around. Your website allowed to me to measure things
out properly for our needs by using your . Further, I could give my
wife a visual, by marking it out with tape, how they would look in the room. Each bed has a full-size desk underneath and there is room to
spare; though I’m sure they’ll take care of that shortly! I might also add, our
sons put the beds together themselves. Thank you and continued success!
I just wanted to let you know we received the two bunk beds we ordered and
everything with the order, delivery and installation went beautifully. I had two
family members there to assemble the beds and they had no problems at all. The
first bed went together in under two hours and the second one took about an hour
and a half. The beds are so solid I'm no longer going to have any worries about
having guests at our cottage. Thanks for your wonderful service, product, and
handling of our order. If you ever need a reference, please don't hesitate to
contact me. Laurie.
I want to let you
know that we LOVE the bed! My daughter is thrilled with it because it bought her
some much needed space in her small bedroom and the quality is superb! Being a
widow, I had my brother-in-law help me. He was surprised how easy it was to set
up. Thanks again and I will recommend your company in a heart beat!
The Bunk Beds were put together by my sons and a buddy. One 15 the other two
13 years old. We watched the video and read the instructions and the boys had it
done even with a pizza break in a timely fashion. It is amazing! Probably the
sturdiest piece of furniture in the house.
I love it. Never had
so much room. I have a very small room with multiple uses, bedroom, office and
dog home. Painted bed white to match the desk and shelving unit and hung
curtains under the bed to hide dog crate when pup's not using it.
If you can't move
out, move up! I live in an 800 sq foot apartment with my two daughters and we
decided rather than move out and pay an extra $1000 in rent a month for more
space, we would take advantage of our apartment's high ceilings. The parts came
in well packed boxes with thorough instructions. It's NOT complicated. I built
the bed myself so don't use the excuse that you need a guy to do it for you! I
ordered a short desk and attached it so it's at standing height (better
ergonomically)... my kids LOVE it so much that I ordered a twin version for my
daughter, which I will be assembling this weekend.... on my own. Thanks.
Thanks again for such
a great product! We had so much fun 're-doing' our daughter's room for her
Birthday. This is our second bed from your company, and again we are very happy
with your service, quality and construction! Mary.
Wow!! You guys rock!
Just got my first loft bed at age 24! haha. But hey, I'm in NYC, have to
capitalize on the very small space I am given right now. Nicole.
Hi! I just wanted to let you know how much we love our bunk bed. We made it
into a Doctor Who themed bed. Thank you for a wonderful bed. My daughters both
love it, and it is so wonderfully sturdy I have no worries about climbing into
the top bunk with my daughter and snuggling up for story time there. Thanks,
We assembled the bed
Christmas Eve (2 am finish) and had a huge surprise for our 6 year old on
Christmas morning. He was thrilled and has thanked us for it at least a dozen
times. We are also very pleased with the product and are very satisfied with the
ease of installation as well as the sturdiness. We have decided you all are
geniuses. Thanks, Stacy.
We just had to let
you know how happy we are with the loft bed we received just yesterday and the
fantastic service from your company. Every step of the process from the
ordering, tracking, delivery, packaging, instructions and installation was spot
on. Haven't had this type of service in a long time. You are a class act
company! Thank you. Lynne.
My husband and I put
it together this weekend and were pleasantly surprised that we didn't need
marriage counseling at the end. Great product; thanks! Kathy.
We recently installed 108 of your Bunkhouse Bunk
Beds into our Holiday Inn Resort that caters to families and
college students. With all the college students here during spring
break, we needed bunk beds that are heavy duty, sturdy and safe, and yours met
all of our specifications and held up very well. Thanks.
your All-In-One Sleep & Study Loft Bed. It is much more reasonable than the $2,000 loft bed from PB Teen. Thanks Amy.
Was so glad to find
American-made, quality products. Nothing in the big-name stores can compare.
Thanks for doing what you do! Jill.
Just wanted to send
you a great big thank you for the speedy shipment & wonderful bed! My daughter
absolutely loves it and all the storage below! The assembly was a lot easier
than I thought it would be, so that was a bonus! So glad I found you on the
internet! A very happy and beyond satisfied family. Wendy.
generation customer. I used
your loft bed in college and just bought one for my 6 year old. Love
that we can all climb in and read to her. Totally sturdy. Love it.
Last summer you custom made queen bunk beds for our boys. We have 3
exceptionally tall teenage boys (6'5", 6'6" and 6'7"). I asked you to provide
the most head room for both of the boys who would be using the bunk bed. My
husband was concerned that the bunk would seem like a monstrosity in the room.
It has worked out beautifully. It functions well and it looks great. Thank you
so much for your help.
Thank you so much for sending the loft so quickly. Ordered it Friday and it
was delivered on Wednesday. We put it together using both the instructions as
well as the video. Love the video! He loved the loft and I love how sturdy and
safe it is.
Thank you again for amazing service and product. Regards, Catharina.
I want to personally thank you for one of the best experiences I've had
buying online. The communication has been top notch, the shipping and order
processing as fast as it could be. Four days to receive a loft bed... That's
pretty darn good. Everyone affiliated with College Loft Beds should be proud to
run such a wonderful company. You have fully exceeded my expectations. I would
definitely buy from you again, and I will definitely recommend you to my friends
and family. Thanks. James.
Your loft bed is totally sturdy!
Over-engineered as my husband says, but given our rough and tumble girl, I think
its great, and we can all pile on her bed for stories too! Thanks.
I ordered a loft
from you guys last year for my son. My daughter cried all Christmas morning that
Santa did not bring her one so I can't disappoint her this year.
I have to say that I am very impressed with your website and especially your
. We have slanted
ceilings and were able to calculate how much headroom we would get using various
heights across different parts of the room. Very helpful and unique approach and
the loft fit perfectly. Thanks.
I just wanted to let you all know that your beds are everything my daughters
wanted! They each have their own 'space' now and since, fight MUCH less! It is
so wonderful to have peace in our house again and I do believe we owe this to
your beds. They are extremely well crafted and my girls absolutely love having
the bookshelves as their headboard, thanks! ...Lori
I just wanted to take a minute and thank you
for both the great product and the prompt customer service! As a single mom I
don't often have a second person to assist me in putting things together. While
there were a couple of times I wished for a second pair of hands to hold
something in place, I was able to easily put the entire bed together without a
second person and it looks great! Thanks again for a customer friendly product!
We recently purchased a bed for our son who is
going to be a college freshman in the fall. He is going to school locally, so we
figured we would redo his bedroom to give it the feeling of a dorm. I have to
say that I am far more impressed with the bed than I expected to be for that
price range. It's
amazingly sturdy and was not that difficult to assemble. His room is not
large, so the bed has afforded him the opportunity to free up floor space for
some seating. I have already recommended the website to a few people. Great
Your loft is perfect for my son at college. There are many reasons why
we bought it from you, but the top 3 are: you customized to exactly what we
needed, you shipped it fast and it was the best price on the internet. PS. It is also as sturdy as a rock. My son loves it.
Very detailed order form and
. I feel well-informed and confident that I
made a good decision. The quality of information on the site was one of the
major deciding factors in selecting your product over those of competitors.
I am very pleased with your customer service and products.
Since I was making a large internet purchase, I did extensive research on
multiple companies. I took your advice of reviewing the
the other companies and was
shocked at what I found. Thanks for a great product and my kids love them.
Your website is by far the easiest and most
informative that I have seen. I was concerned about purchasing a loft due to our
low ceilings. I love the fact that you customized it to fit our specifications
and it looks great! Thanks.
Wonderful, exactly what I needed to make my
New York City closet-sized room into a more spacious and livable space.
I did an extensive comparison between you and IKEA, and yours is higher
quality and much much studier than the IKEA loft, and the mattress fit
Please Note: A standard twin mattress is 39"
x 75" and most colleges use an extra long XL mattress which is
80". The IKEA
loft beds are designed for European mattress sizes which are a little smaller
than US sizes.
It's hard to believe that my daughter's room is only 10 x 11! With the loft,
it feels huge!...Thanks,
The web site is very complete. The
information (e.g., to put a loft bed together, what one looks like when
broken down to
, the loft leg
guidelines, all the

to buy) helped
convince me that this was the right to buy from. The person who talked with
me by phone was extremely helpful and professional. Moving to college is already
stressful; thanks for making it easier.
It was a fun family project to set up, paint and decorate
together. My kids love it and their friends love to come over and play
underneath 'The Fort'. ...Joann
