Hi Cynthia. I'm a Cynthia too. You could hang a platform bed from the ceiling. What boy (or girl) wouldn't like that? Use a stud finder to locate the studs to hang the bed from.
Hope this helps:
Here's some more inspiration
Hello! There are lots of platform bed ideas here:
I would choose a theme of something that he really likes but will grow with him as he matures. Then paint or stain the bed in a finish that will be versatile with that and decorate the room with accent pieces of his hobby or passion.
I did my son's room with vintage car accents and used cherry wood stain when he was a teen. I actually kept it after he moved out for about 5 years. Even after his sister took over the room as a sewing room. We just removed the accent pieces, he took with him when he moved, and didn't have to re paint the room. Now it's a guest room for when they visit, same color scheme just new bed & bedding.
Cynthia: Teens would LOVE this!!

Search YouTube for ‘darbin orver platform bed’. This is a quick and strong plan.
You can build one from pallets. My daughter and her fiance got pallets where paper was delivered. They seem to be the cleanest. They staked two layers and then put a piece of 1/2" plywood on top and then a mattress. Pallet beds are popular right now.
