IKEA is an awesome solution when you need furniture quick and cheap. Bedroom furniture, beds in particular, are something you can get relatively cheaply at IKEA, but you sacrifice quality and durability most of the time. Furniture that gets a lot of weight and motion should not be made of fiber board or press wood, which is constructed of wood shavings and glue.
When you are considering bedroom furniture and you are on a budget, there are some great alternatives to IKEA that actually rival them in price and surpass them in quality.
At Nest Bedding, we carry some excellent quality beds and platforms at very reasonable prices. For example, the basic Platform bed, which is constructed of sustainable hardwood and finished with non-toxic stains, retails for just $299 for a queen size. And that is a very sturdy, solid, hardwood platform bed with no fillers or press wood. Yes, you put it together like an IKEA bed, but even the way it is constructed is much better than most of the beds they carry.
Nest Bedding also carries a basic metal platform, for the customer looking for an inexpensive metal platform for their mattress. The Ventura Metal platform is capable of supporting up to 1000lbs, gives you under the bed storage and is under $200 for a queen size.
There is a great selection of headboards, finishes and styles at Nest Bedding if you are shopping around the East Bay in cities such as Berkeley, Emeryville or Oakland, and even a short drive across the bridge from San Francisco. Give Nest Bedding a consideration for your next platform bed or mattress.
