Types of Wood: Wood used to make furniture is largely divided in two categories- hardwoods and softwoods. The hardwood is obtained from flowering trees. Softwoods which are more readily available are obtained from coniferous trees. However, it is important to know that either type of wood can be bleached or stained to change its natural color. You can customize the wooden finish as per your preferences and tastes.

  • Hardwoods: Typically more expensive than softwoods, hardwood beds are also more durable and compact. Some common types of hardwood are Cherry, Maple, Teak, Sheesham, Poplar, Oak, and Mahogany. Most of these resist shrinking, swelling, and warping. Most hardwoods depict a distinct grain, so every piece stands out from the other. However, to provide a uniform look the wooden slabs can be stained or given a wooden finish.
  • Softwoods: These are easily available and easier to work with. Hence, more intricate designs and carvings can be done on softwoods. Some common types of softwoods are Cedar, White Pine, and Yellow Pine. These wood types are available in lighter colors, and are mostly used to make elaborate side panels or head boards for solid wood beds. Out of these, Cedar wood is also naturally moth repellent.

Designs: The most important factor after deciding the type of wood is design. Here we offer divan beds, singles beds, double beds, and storage beds. In our range of solid wood beds we have a variety of styles like classic, mid century modern, and contemporary. When choosing a bed, consider the space in your bedroom to decide upon a size. Storage beds are an obvious choice to save space. Another thing to keep in mind is the height of the bed. Standard bed height for adults should be 16 to 24 inches. However, one must specify the dimensions if the bed is for kids or old people. Further, solid wood beds are constructed with superior craftsmanship ensuring all the hardware used is top quality.

Accessories: Solid wood beds are mostly designed to fit any kind of décor. But, in one’s bedroom where the bed is central piece of furniture, other accessories must be complementary to the style of the bed. Amongst the most common accessories are mattresses, accent chairs, dressing tables, chest of drawers, cabinets, and wardrobes. Choosing a suitable color is also important.
