4 Reasons Why a Timber Bed Frame is a Better Choice
We all spend a great deal of time in our beds; they are an essential piece of furniture, and if we don’t get enough rest it can have a dramatic impact on our lives. So, if you’re going to spend ⅓ of your life in a bed, why not get a bed that you love? A custom timber bed frame is an excellent choice if you want some style and elegance in your bedroom. In this article, we will look at four reasons why a timber storage bed is a better choice for your home.
1. A Genuine Choice
When you choose timber custom beds, you’re getting a genuine choice in the bed that you want and need. There are many different styles to choose from; you could go modern, traditional or perhaps a mix of the two to create something new. Then there are other factors that will influence the design, such as grain, colour, and finish. The next decision is, are you going to use hardwood or softwood? A softwood bed will have a stain to show off the natural grain, or a solid colour could be applied for a more modern finish. A hardwood bed will give you a rich natural appearance that can be carefully matched with other items of furniture in your bedroom.
2. A Stronger Bed Frame
A timber bed frame will be far stronger than other cheaper alternative. The strength and durability of the wood and the custom nature of the construction will produce a bed frame that’s designed to last. If you get a bed that uses mortise and tenon joints the critical weakest points where the side rails connect to the legs will be exceptionally strong instead.
3. A Practical Solutions
When your custom bed is delivered, it will arrive packed flat so that you can easily move it to the bedroom. This is especially useful if the room is located in a loft or other hard to reach bed platform location. Compared to maneuvering a bulky pair of divan based this will be exceptionally easy to get into place. This is equally true when you move home, simply follow the instruction in reverse, keep the fixing safe and pack the bed parts in bubble wrap to protect the finish from dents and scratches. Another practical consideration is that a slatted bed base will promote airflow and ventilation for the base of your mattress and this is more hygienic for sleeping.
4. Easy Maintenance
As a natural product, wood requires very little in the way of upkeep and maintenance. Timber is easy to clean, a lacquer and protective finish will be applied to seal the wood. This will allow the surface to take the odd scrape or knock without too much trouble. If damage occurs, it can be repaired if you choose a solid timber frame rather than a cheaper veneer alternative.
