You don’t want to wake yourself up by moving in your sleep and hearing the creaking or cracking of the bed – and you don’t want to be in a sagging bed that leaves your mattress (and you) in an awkward position. Wooden beds help because they offer:

  • Strength. Wood offers amazing strength, simply because wood has the property to adjust to its environment – it never really dies.

  • Customisation. Wooden beds are easy to make according to the requirements of the owner, and can be customised.

  • Durability. The strength of the bed also ensures the durability of the bed – this means that it’s a good investment over the years.

Maintenance and cost

If you think about the long term, here’s why wood makes perfect sense:

  • Economical. Compared to other choices out there, wood is relatively economical.

  • Easy maintenance. No worries about rust or mould – just regular dusting and polishing.

  • Easy installation. How wonderful wooden beds are – they fit right into place.

Choices and appearances

Yes, comfort and durability are important, but so are aesthetics (of course they are). Here’s why wood gives you better prospects:

  • The natural look. This appeals to our natural sides – it’s nice to sleep and dream in a bed of wood.

  • A personalised solution. Regardless of your body type or personal requirements, beds made out of wood are easy to be made and customised.

For those who are concerned about the environment and understand the need to save as many trees as possible, there’s great news: more and more wooden beds are environmentally friendly and actually help us maintain an economically viable and sustained lifestyle. This is because the wood for the beds – often pine – is FSC or PEFC certified, to ensure that the harvested wood is immediately replaced with a new tree that will grow in its place. Wooden beds not only improve your sleep cycle, they’re also economical and environmentally safe.
