The sloped headboard is designed for resting on while reading and also storage of ones favorite books, magazines or bedside toys.
The closet doors presented the opportunity to give child a place for important things. One panel was a dry erase board, the middle had metallic paint so it could hold magnetsand the last was a cork board for pinned items

The loft bed allows your child to utilize the space below for other uses. Some will have it as a play area where you could also install curtains for a private space. This unit was built with a play area in mind but was converted several years later to a work station for a tween. Maximizing space in a small bedroom is always a challenge.
