Most dorm room bunk beds offer the capability of lofting. This option frees up valuable floor space below the bunk for studying, lounging or storage. Once the bottom bunk is removed, you can add a futon, desk or storage containers. In this dorm room design, the bunk wasn't lofted out of necessity, but mostly out of the desire for a cozy lounging spot.

When it comes to small spaces, keeping unnecessary clutter concealed is the key to a neat room. If you dont have an armoire or closet door, try designer Alexandra Hernandezs solution: Use burlap fabric like a curtain and hold it slightly open with cotton tie-backs.
