How We Improved The Koala Bed Base

How We Improved on the Koala Bed Base

A decent bed base is key to a good night’s sleep. It should hold the mattress in place and provide sturdy support. Your bed frame should be practical, easy to assemble and for the style-conscious, have a sleek, minimal look. 

At the end of the day, you want to be able to hop into bed knowing a restful and restorative night's sleep is coming your way. 

When creating our new timber bed base, we took into account what customers have said about the Koala bed base. We understand that the Koala bed base is creaky and doesn’t always hold the Koala mattress in place. Many say the colouring of the wood is different from the pictures advertised on its website, too. We took these reviews into consideration when designing the Ecosa bed base, and we must say, we're pretty happy with the result!

How is the Ecosa bed base better than the Koala bed base?

Ecosa’s bed base is silent.

A good night's sleep is all about uninterrupted rest, but what's the use in having a partner disturbance-free memory foam mattress, if your bed base is going to bump and squeak every time you move?

When we discovered that the Koala bed base is known for being creaky, we made sure that our bed frame was silent. We resent a squeaky bed just as much as you do. 

Ecosa’s timber bed base ensures that there are no loose parts, no creaks and no squeaks. We use some of the best quality material to make our bed base sturdy, durable and squeak-free, no matter what you get up to at bedtime! 

Our wooden bed base is made from solid natural timber.

And we know that a natural timber bed base is built to last. Our bed base is made from American ash, which is super strong and durable. Ever held a baseball bat? They're made from the same solid timber as our bed base. Told you it was solid!

American ash timber is a subspecies of ash (which is wood, not smoke ash), grown in the eastern parts of North America. It’s only available in Australia thanks to very specialist suppliers. 

The sprung slats in Ecosa’s bed base provide ultimate comfort. 

We hate to brag, but we're experts when it comes to sleep. While we created our Ecosa memory foam mattress to work on all surfaces, we think sprung slat bed bases score a few extra comfort points. Providing extra support and absorption of movement, our sprung slat timber bed base is the perfect companion to a great mattress. 

Sprung slats are slightly curved slats of wood, that move with you when you get in and out of bed. They support the mattress much better than hard base, too. The whole no mattress slide thing was a big deal to us. You shouldn’t have to readjust your mattress every time you get in and out of bed! Our sprung slat bed base will ensure your mattress stays put.

Sprung slats also provide ventilation during the night. It gives you that extra breathability to cool down when you’re sleeping and allows for maximum air circulation, extending the lifespan of your memory foam mattress and providing a cooler sleep. 

Ecosa’s bed base comes with adjustable non-scratch feet. 

Worried about scratching your floorboards when assembling or moving your bed base? Don't worry, we thought of that. Our bed frame is built with scratch-resistant metal feet that absorb movement. Whether you're rearranging your bedroom or your kids are having a sneaky jump on the bed, rest assured your Ecosa bed base will stay put thanks to its non-scratch feet. What's more, if you've got a pesky uneven floor, set each of the feet to your desired height. Our Ecosa bed base is a wobble-free zone.

... and heaps of storage.

Beneath the comfy sprung slats, there is 27cm (21cm entry point) of depth to store anything you like. Whether you're storing luggage, kids' toys or last season's winter gear, you can with the Ecosa bed base. You may also have noticed our sneaky extra storage behind the headboard. Perfect for all that annoying bedside table clutter. Out of sight, out of mind, right?!

American ash timber has a sleek look.

A secret source (Google) tells us that Koala’s bed base has a reddish-pink colouring to it, and looks nothing like the website’s images. But what you see is what you get with our timber bed base. 

American ash has a classic look. We polish the base with eco-friendly timber oil so to protect the deepest layers of the wood, so while your wood grain might differ slightly from product to product (that's how natural timber works), you can rest assured that light wood look is guaranteed. Stick with Ecosa for a bed base that's made to last.

Ecosa’s bed base is available in single, double, queen, king, and super king size. The timber bed base was created to match perfectly with the Ecosa memory foam mattress. Better yet, pair it with our brand new radiation reducing timber bedside table to really level up your bedroom game.
