Mattress advice - How do I know what I am getting.
Obviously buying online has the advantage of saving money with a quicker delivery. However with a mattress how do I know what to get. Too be honest if you go into a showroom a salesman will give you a choice of ten or twenty, he will for sure recommend the mattress he gets the most commission on.
We have simplified our selection and provided a one mattress for each grade required. We will keep it simple and give you the following advice:
Pheonix 15cm thick sprung budget mattress.
This in an entry level mattress, at only 15cm thick do not expect too much out of the product. If the mattress is for occasional use, ie not every night then this may be OK. It has a 13.5 gauge spring unit with minimal padding. The heavier the person the more chance they will feel the springs. Advice: Spend a little more and go for the Belmont mattress
Belmont 20cm thick sprung mattress.
This mattress, being thicker then the budget is a marked improvement. Being 5cm thicker we can put more packing and padding in. This makes for a more comfortable mattress. This mattress is ideal for children and medium use for adults, dependant on weight. This mattress is also quilted for a more comfortable sleep. non-allergenic fillings
Mia Memory Soft Memory Foam mattress
This Mattress is an Open Coil Sprung Memory Foam Layered Mattress. A dual season mattress, this means a warm memory foam side for the winter then a cooler cotton based side for the summer. This is not a cheap vacuum/rolled mattress. Conforms to British Standards BS7177.
This mattress has a soft- Medium firmness rating
For Everyday Use
Why are the beds not painted?
We used to supply, like everyone else on the internet cheap imported beds. These came complete with a painted finish.The problem is that, just like a skirting board the paint chips and flakes off, making for an unsightly finish.
We now manufacturer our products with that come with no finish, already sanded ready to go. Much like a skirting board you then have the choice to use it as it is, a very modern look or apply your own finish.
I want to colour the bed, what do you recommend?
Given what we have advised above we do not recommend painting a bed. The paint simply sits on the timber and will chip when knocked. Timber has been stained for centuries, the reason is that the stain sinks into the timber so cannot chip off.
We recommend a WOOD DYE. This has the advantage of a varnish finish but dries to form resilient layer that will protect the timber. Application is very easy, we recommend you build the product and place a sheet under for protection. You simply apply using the a lint free cloth.
WOOD DYE comes in a number off coloured finished, clear, white, dark or light oak. You only need to purchase 250ml (depending on your requirements) to finish a whole bunk bed.
You can purchase these from our website or from any good DIY store.
The good thing about staining a bed is in a couple of years you can apply another coat – presto the bed looks like new again.

We source our timber from sustainable forests in Northern Europe that are monitored to ensure that both local wildlife habitats and human population are protected. Working conditions for employees in the sawmills are also regulated to ensure there is no abuse of labour.
We use pine (European Redwood) or spruce (European Whitewood) from Northern countries such as Sweden and Finland as the cooler climate leads to a slower growth rate for the trees. This in turn makes the timber stronger and more stable. When the logs are converted to sawn timber each piece is graded to laid down quality standards. The sawn timber is dried using kilns that vary the temperature and add water vapor to prevent the pieces drying too quickly and causing splits or twisting.
The devil is in the detail: You would think all beds are the same, think again
We were importers of beds in another lifetime, from Brazil or China. Over the years we witnessed the prices go up and the quality go down. Its a sad fact that over 80% of beds sold in this country are imported. It is for this reason you should no why we stopped importing and started making beds.
The base slat support bars on imported beds are glued or at best stapled.
The base slat support bars on OUR beds are screwed in by hand.
This gives added support to the base slats that hold all the weight.
Imported bunk beds have flimsy 19mm ladder steps, no good for adults.
We supply 50mm thick WIDE ladder steps that can take the weight of adults. No point having a strong bed if you cannot climb up it !
Imported bunk beds have no added support rails under the base slats.
EVERYONE of our bunk beds has a strong centre rail support system under each base to further strength and support the slats.
To keep costs down imported beds use cheap, thin plywood base slats.
Email the retailer before you buy, you will surprised of this hidden fact.
WE ONLY use 19mm thick, extra wide solid pine base slats on ALL of our beds. We understand the importance of quality.
Given an imported bed is made so far away the retailer is limited to what sort of after sales they can offer. Spare part posted from China - really !
