The basic criteria for buying a good bed are based not only on stylistic elements, such as design, but also on the intrinsic characteristics of the product, such as comfort. A good bed is, in practice, a structure that combines design and quality.

The differences, therefore, between a structure and the other, are dictated primarily by the materials of the structure and its coatings.

In general, the materials that make up a main structure of a bed can be wood or metal (from brass to wrought iron), upholstered in fabric or leather.

For the structure, the majority of companies use the wood in its various types, from solid to chipboard.
Currently, wood products are the best product with the best price/quality ratio.

The wood derivatives are obtained from the reaction of the wood vegetable essence with chemicals.
The natural wood is impregnated with chemicals in appropriate quantities, such as phenol and formaldehyde, which reacts with the plant cells forming a material more durable and resistant than natural wood.
The wood products are subject, among other treatments, also the insecticides ones against borers.

In addition to the materials of the structure, there are those of the coatings, which can be in fabric or leather.

As the beds covers must be completely removable, it is important first of all that any type of fabric has been treated by the manufacturer, so that after washing does not shrink or discolor.

For leather, the most valuable leather type is the full grain, ie the outer layer of the leather.

The hides, before tanning, has a thickness of about 1 cm.
This is cut transversely, and the outer part is the most valuable, because it keeps the characteristics of elasticity, softness and brightness of the leather.
For example, Nubuck is the full grain leather of the calf.

The eco-leather is a fabric that tends to artificially reproduce the characteristics of natural leather. Compared to the skin, it has the advantage of being washable as a normal fabric and it is usually cheaper.

Regarding the design, the need to rationalise as much as possible and take advantage of the space available, were born smart pieces of furniture that make the most of the surfaces and volumes that compose them.

For example, many of the models on the market have a convenient container box placed beneath the mattress.

These containers can have a capacity of about 400 liters, having a surface equal to that of the mattress.
