Wooden beds lend an air of warmth to any bedroom. The material just lends itself to various design concepts, from the traditional to the contemporary. Wooden beds are a popular choice for guest rooms and children bedrooms because the material is durable and low-maintenance. When designing your perfect bedroom, the choice of a wooden bed plays an important part in pulling off a well-coordinated look. Your choice of the bed frame design should complement not only the decorating scheme but also make the most of the room’s interior features. For example, a bedroom with high ceilings is ideally suited for a four-poster bed with a canopy. Meanwhile, a room which gets a lot of natural light can play off the mellow dark tones of woods such as oak or mahogany. If you are looking for a more streamlined look, choose a wooden bed with simple lines and soft angles. The heavier, more ornately-styled wooden beds are better for larger bedrooms to give a sense of proportion to the room’s dimensions. It used to be an unspoken rule of decorating that you had to use the same wood finish on all the furniture in one room. While this is still an easy and graceful way to make sure that each component of a bedroom suite is in harmony, feel free to mix and match wooden beds and other pieces together. Nowadays, modern interior decorators say that it is ok to have an oak wooden frame with pine bedside tables or armoires (or vice versa) —as long as you integrate key elements which can tie them together aesthetically. For example, play off the darkness of the oak wooden bed frame by using beddings in rich biscuit colors—the sandy brown will echo the lightness of your pine bedside tables, and complete the visual impression that all three pieces are part of a set. Most wooden beds come with slatted bed bases which eliminate the need for a box spring. The spaces between the slats enable good ventilation for the mattress, aiding in the evaporation of moisture which prevents mildew and dust mite proliferation. However, do check that the slats are not too far apart—else you will find that the base is not as supportive as it should be.
