- Qualities of a good natural wood bed – High-quality natural wood beds are made of hardwoods like solid cherry, North American ash, brown maple, oak, and walnut, all of which are known for their beautiful grains. They are solidly constructed with metal on metal connectors to ensure durability, good strength, easy assembly. They have strong hardwood slats, too, going side to side to let the mattress system breathe.
- Explore the selection of natural wood bed products – Reputable retailers carry solid wood bed frames and foundations. Bed frames are sold either as a platform bed (if you want to use only the mattress) or as a conventional bed (if you are using a box spring with a mattress).
Three-inch and eight-thick traditional slatted wood foundations are made from untreated cabinet grade spruce wood, with about two to 2.5 inches of airspace between every slat for breathability. Manufacturers use 100 percent organic South Carolina cotton ticking (flannel fabric) with a diamond pattern covering and eco wool made of Pure Pacific Northwest California Eco Wool and chemical-free wool blend. These foundations will keep the mattress close to the floor, making them ideal for babies or very young children who are transitioning from their crib to a twin-sized bed.
An eight-inch thick foundation offers a higher height to allow the mattress to breathe. It may be ideal for older people who need to get in and out of bed easily.
