Bed Frame: Our beds are made from solid Spruce Wood. Most of our competitors are made from particle board or metal.
Freestanding: Our beds are freestanding and very sturdy with large legs (corner posts). Some of our competitors use very thin lightweight posts and require you to attach the bed to the wall. For example the IKEA STORA webpage says: "WARNING - Serious or fatal crashing injuries can occur from furniture tip-over. To prevent this furniture must be permanently fixed to the wall."
Custom Built: All beds are Custom Built to your exact specifications so it will work with any mattress thickness, any ceiling height and any room size. Most of our competitors require a very tall ceiling and can only hold a thin mattress.

Weight Capacity: Our beds are very sturdy and designed for Youth, Teen, College Students and Adults with a weight capacity of 1,000 lbs. per level. For parents that like to read to their child in bed you are going to want the increased weight capacity and sturdiness our beds provide. Most of our competitors beds are designed for young children with a typical weight capacity of 150 - 200 lbs., which includes the weight of the mattress and person. For example Pottery Barn PB-Teen and IKEA beds have a weight capacity of just 200 lbs. If the bed manufacturer does not clearly list the weight capacity, chances are it was designed for very young children.
Mattress Foundation Bed Slats: Our beds (except the Dorm Beds) come with a complete mattress foundation bed slats which does not require a bunkie board. Most of our competitors beds require you to purchase a separate bunkie board or plywood platform to support the mattress.
Consumer Products Safety Commission: Our beds with the Home Use Safety Rails meet the CPSC Consumer Products Safety Commission Guidelines. If the competitors website does not clearly state this, you should contact them to verify it meets the CPSC Guidelines or to see if they have had any recalls. Many of our competitors (including PB-Teen) have has recalls on their Loft and Bunk Beds due to structural failures and safety violations.
The best present of all for your child is the gift of more space, storage and organization in his or her bedroom. With a loft bed you raise the bed off the floor and utilize the space underneath for a desk, storage or a nice soft bean bag chair to snuggle up and read. When multiple children share a room a loft gives them each more personal space.
For Youth, Tween & Teens. Does your child need more space for a desk, a nice quiet reading area or a place to store all their books, games and stuff?
