About our Timber we Use
All our timber is sourced from sustained forests. The timber heat treated(kilned) to remove all infestation. No added chemicals or treatments are applied to our timber. During our processes the timber is sawn and sanded. This means, just like a natural skiting board you can either use as it is or easily apply your own coloured finish
Why are the beds not painted?
We previously supplied, 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 in a couple of months. We have invested our money in the quality and strength of the product rather than the finish. Most customers like the natural look, the product can be used with no further treatment. However, if you want to apply a finish it is super easy peasy. Firstly we strongly advise you assemble the product first, this ensures you are happy with the quality and makes it easier to apply the 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 or stain. 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 a lint free cloth, much like polishing a surface.
Wood Dye/stain comes in many exciting colours. You only need to purchase 250ml (depending on your requirements) to finish a whole bunk bed. We do recommend you use a site called Wood Finish Direct, they have a very large colour, oil and stain selection. Click HERE or on the logo for details

Our Commitment to Environmental Sustainability
Frame Accepts Mattress Size:
135cm by 190cm
We have a passion for sustainability, this stretches from the pine we source to our packaging. We even use staple less staplers in the office! For this reason, we only source our solid timber from FSC and PEFC approved forests. We're working in partnership with the Woodland Trust as another step in this journey and to help give back to the environment by planting trees with each bed purchased. We continually strive for environmental sustainability.
No Cheap Plywood Base Slats Here
Solid slats are more durable and provide greater levels of support than sprung slats, which are often made using cheap woods and finishes like Veneers, Laminate and MDF. The thickness of these materials are less than half the density of our solid slats. A common misunderstanding is that the movement of sprung slats provide support. This is false. The opposite is true as continuous movement weakens the frame and wears down your mattress. Providing uneven support for your body that significantly deteriorates over time. Never settle for less than solid slats for your bed. All our base slats are SOLID PINE, extra wide (70mm) and extra thick (19mm)

Very Happy with our British Made Bed
Very happy with our double bed for our son, went together quite easily, instructions easy to follow so would have no hesitation in buying from this company again. Good price too and good quality, it is much sturdier than it looks in the photo. Recommended.
