Metal loft beds provide an attractive alternative to beds made of other, more prevalent materials. For instance, while wood can be heavy and challenging to move, metal is lightweight, which makes a metal loft bed more suitable for people who change residences frequently. The majority of metal loft bed designs also typically include a powder coating that makes the material resistant to scratches, chips, UV damage, and rust.
Despite the advantages provided by their lighter weight and protective veneer, metal bed frames tend to start creaking after extended use and are therefore not traditionally the best option for younger, restless kids. On the other hand, metal loft beds typically retail at lower price points than other styles and offer valuable space-saving solutions, especially for people in temporary living situations. Furthermore, because metal proves inhospitable to bed bugs, the material is particularly effective in shared spaces, like apartment buildings, where the risk of infestation remains higher in general.
