In terms of space, the Utica Dorm Loft creates a minimal footprint, and provides children and parents with lots of options in customizing their ideal bedroom. The 'Build-a-Bed' system begins with a basic loft and Berg's signature, the staircase. Teens and young adults will have more than enough room to spread out with the optional desk station that this model offers. Keep all of your CD's, calendars, and books in order by adding in the optional cork-board and shelves. Your kid will wish they could bring this with them to college!
