Wooden Beds

Wooden bed frames make a great addition to any bedroom as they bring elegance, warmth and can add a touch of class to your interior décor. They are available in a wide array of finishes and type of wood such as pine, oak or mahogany. The various finishes mean they can fit a number of different styles.

If you are considering investing in a wooden bed here are a few things you need to know to help decide if the type of bed you are choosing for your bedroom will do your room justice.

Styles
Since wood is a material that you can have in a light or dark colour depending on the species, you can choose your bed to match your own style. However if you are having difficulties finding the exact shade of wood you need match your wooden bedside table, you can also have a wooden bedstead finished in lacquer or even apply a coat of coloured paint to the frame if you want it to be more decorative.

Durability
The most durable bed types are manufactured from hardwoods such as pine and oak. Although a wooden bed is very affordable, you can expect to pay a little more for a hardwood bed. It will be a more resilient piece of furniture and the quality you will get from it will make the extra spend worthwhile. However beds crafted from softwood are a less expensive variant for those who are shopping on a budget. Those beds will also last for many years but you will have to give them extra care.

Wood care
Wooden beds are also very easy to keep clean. Simply use a damp cloth or a duster to remove stains and dust particles and this will ensure your wooden bed will look better for longer. You can also wax the frame with a product dedicated to wooden furniture to protect the bed from scratches and give it a wonderful shine.

Finish
Since wood is a natural material, any furniture made from it will mellow over time but the only downside is that it takes a long time for the material to come to its mature state. However you can give it a boost by playing with wooden primer or sand your furniture.
