Why Wood Makes a Better Bed

When purchasing a bed, most people focus on purchasing a new mattress but after all, the mattress is what provides comfort, right? One of the pieces of furniture most often overlooked is the bed frame.

The foundation of a good night’s sleep is a good quality bed and that includes the frame. One that doesn’t squeak as soon as you sit down, gives you the support and comfort you need and combines practicality with stylish good looks. There are so many different types of bed frames in Singapore, it can be hard to decide which to go for, but the simplest choice comes down to this wood or metal? Which is better?

Here are the reasons why wooden bed frames are better than metal ones.

1. Wooden bed frames are naturally anti-microbial

Sturdiness is a concrete and observable measure for determining the quality of a bed. Its natural anti-microbial nature means it is hygienic and hypoallergenic, lasting longer and safe for everyone. Solid wooden beds give you the power to make your long-term investment extra-long as they can last a lifetime and even for generations if properly cared for.

2. Wooden bed frames are less likely to keep you up at night

Compared to metal bed frames, quality wooden bed frames in Singapore are far less likely to creak. Consequently, the individual sleeping in a wooden bed is less vulnerable to the annoyances of a creaky, squeaky bed keeping him up at night. In this case, saving sleep takes precedence over saving money. You may come to regret saving a few dollars at the expense of your quality of sleep.

3. You can choose from an array of finishes

Wood is a popular material because it can be stained and re-stained to match a variety of shades. A wooden bed frame gives you the versatility to adjust your bed to match the rest of your bedroom as it evolves and changes. Staining wood also gives you the opportunity to truly make a piece your own. Similarly, each wooden bed frame offers a unique pattern of the wood grain to enhance that feeling of originality that homeowners so often desire.

4. Wooden bed frames provide a feeling of warmth

Wooden bed frames yield a warmth that metal beds are typically incapable of putting off. The bedroom is often made to be the coziest room of the house and wooden beds are well-suited to emphasize that sentiment. If you are after a rustic bedroom atmosphere, a wooden frame is a choice for you.

Consider your needs

You can check more about the different sizes of bed frames all day long, from singles to a king-sized bed frame; but the most important question to ask yourself when purchasing a new bed is if it is right for you. After all, you are the one making the investment and you are the one who will incorporate this piece into your daily life. Make sure that you are comfortable with your purchase and it fits your specific needs and style.

Total Sleep Solution

We have developed an approach to total sleep where every key component of your bed is perfectly matched with one another to maximise:
• coolness
• hygiene 
• healing 
• better sex
• deeper sleep
• back support

To often many sleep products are developed separately and certain positive functions are neutralized by a function of another product such as bedsheets that cover the wicking surface of mattresses. The cooling effect of the mattress is completely lost.

Our philosophy is that your bed frame, mattress, pillow and bedding must work as one and not as separate products.
