Solid Wood Loft Bed Frame
What’s So Great about This Loft Bed Frame Compared to Others?
The Manhattan Loft is best known for its extra height and ease of assembly. Some of our other models, like the Spirit Loft, are a kit style loft (that means the end panels are put together by you) so they require a fair amount assembly. The trade off is that they are slightly less expensive than other models. Comparatively, this loft bed is partially pre-assembled (the end panels are already in one piece when it arrives to you), so it can assembled quickly and easily. The layered construction makes this loft super strong and durable (the crossbars are built into the upright layers that make up the corner posts).
Like all of our loft options, you don’t need a ladder. Some people prefer a ladder, but the ends are definitely strong enough for repeated daily climbing. Older kids don’t seem to mind skipping a ladder, where littler kids seems to appreciate one on their tender feet. And, the loft alone can handle 1000 pounds, so we feel pretty confident it will hold up to the expected wear and tear.
In addition to a Regular Twin Size, it is offered in an Extra Long Size, giving you 80 Inches of length in the mattress area verses 75 like the regular twin. Tall people are always happy about this option, and of course we have Twin Extra Long Mattresses if you need them. Furthering the functionality and value, if in the future you need to convert from standard Twin to Twin XL (or vise versa), you can buy a conversion kit and you’d then have a re-usable loft bed in an alternate size without having to totally reinvest.
The Manhattan Loft comes standard with a full length guard rail (see our Freedom Model if you prefer a partial/half guard rail). Or, if you need a loft with regular height and a full guard rail you can see our Liberty Loft)
This Loft Bed can be ordered Unfinished (with nothing at all applied to it), OR it can be ordered with a Water Based Stain in Golden Oak Color. Of course we use a LOW VOC, water-based stain, and the staining process will add some additional time to your order vs. unfinished.

We recommend using an 8 Inch mattress or less. The area that the mattress will drop into is approximately 12-13 Inches. To get the maximum effectiveness from the guard rail, you’ll want to be sure it will protrude above the mattress by 4-5 Inches. Basic style mattresses are usually 7-8 Inches high, and some people opt to use a futon mattress since they are commonly offered in that thickness (and they can be FedEx’d, where conventional mattresses usually cannot be…so here is where you can take advantage of freight shipping rates. It costs very little to add items to an existing pallet shipment). You decide what’s best for you. A Bunkie board, box spring or foundation is not used for this loft; It comes with a 12-slat kit that drops right into the frame to support the mattress you choose.
NOTE: These are recommendations; you’ll want to decide what’s appropriate and comfortable for you
