Our handcrafted beds are investment pieces; quality solid wood beds with an 11 year guarantee, the ideal centrepiece for your bedroom. Wood maintenance is important to keeping it looking fresh, but how do you best take care of your bed frame?

Here we are going to share how to clean wooden furniture, and all the tips and tricks behind simple wood maintenance.

Wood Maintenance

Not only is wood strong and durable, it is a gorgeous natural resource. To keep it looking its best, there are a few easy things you can do.

Firstly, it is handy to remember that wood is naturally porous, meaning it may absorb liquids. We treat each of our handmade bed frames to protect against water damage, however it is still a good idea to wipe up any major spillages quickly to avoid permanent stains.

It's also good to avoid scuffs and scrapes. Our wooden beds are designed to be used, we’re not expecting you to just sit and look at them! But by avoiding major dents, you can negate the need for wood maintenance altogether.

How To Clean Wooden Furniture

The most effective way of keeping your furniture looking beautiful is to clean it regularly. It can be easy to forget about your wooden bed frame when it comes to cleaning, but regular wood maintenance will pay you dividends.

To maintain paint and finishes, we recommend simply using a cloth and a little water to remove dust and stains. Our bed frames are all handmade, and our master craftsmen specifically select each cut of wood to highlight its unique character. By keeping your bed frame free from dust, you will be allowing the grain and beautiful tones of your bed frame to shine through.
