Why our sleep experts loved it

Waking up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated is what we all yearn for. As much as getting the needed hours of sleep is crucial, the quality of that sleep is also equally important. The underlying factor that affects your sleep quality is the bed you sleep on. Yes, you read that right! We'd all choose restful, uninterrupted sleep over fitful, broken sleep any day, and the quality of your bed contributes immensely to this.

Consider the Trafford Wooden Bed Frame, a timeless combination of Scandinavian styling meets classic minimalism. With spindles carved intricately into the headboard, soft curves, light oak-stain wood finish, and tapered wooden legs, this bed frame is a sight to behold in your bedroom. However, knowing that aesthetic appeal and actual performance can be two different things, I decided to put it to the test.

How we tested

In examining the Trafford Wooden Bed, we closely examined the bed frame's design and features, considering aspects like the assembling time as well the overall comfort of the bed. Moreover, having used the bed for some time, we felt its benefits and setbacks alike, gaining comprehensive insights that could be shared for your benefit.

Design and features

One of the highlights of this bed frame is its spindle headboard design. The spindles carved into a lovely pattern offer a delightful rustic appeal, a veritable showstopper for your bedroom. However, being someone who prefers more modern lines and less 'nature-centric' designs myself, I found the headboard not entirely to my taste. That being said, it matches well with the rest of the frame, enhancing its classic appeal.

The soft rounded corners of the bed frame are a delight as well, ensuring you don't get a sharp poke in the leg while walking by. Furthermore, I appreciate the low foot end, a clever feature that creates a sense of roominess in compact bedrooms.


Constructed from light oak-stain wood finish, the bed frame is both robust and chic. What caught my fancy are the solid slats that come with the bed frame. They significantly increase breathability, ensuring air freely circulates to keep your mattress, and subsequently you, cool. If you desire more durability and comfort, there's also a sprung slat upgrade available. If you ask me, if you're planning long-term use, the upgrade is a worthy investment.


In terms of suitability, the Trafford Wooden Bed Frame fits well across a broad array of bedroom decor styles, and its light oak effect makes it versatile for different colour schemes. However, I must point out that the delivery time was a bit disappointing, running on the longer side than what we've come to expect from bed frame deliveries.

What customers thought

Reviews from customers provide insightful information regarding the consumer's experience and one such review caught my attention: "The Trafford bedframe offers excellent value for money while delivering maximum style. This beautifully designed bedframe is perfect for a spare or master bedroom space." This sentiment mirrors the functionality and affordability I observed in the Trafford Bed Frame. Although the number of reviews on this bed frame were limited, the overall sentiment leaned towards positive.

The verdict

Summing up, the Trafford Wooden Bed Frame stands as a testimony to classic simplicity meeting modish design elements. Despite my personal disapproval of the headboard style, I recognise it’s the bed frame’s charm point for many. The frame overall reflects subtle sophistication, and with the choice to upgrade to sprung slats, this is a bed frame whose comfort and durability can be enhanced, ensuring you're investing in a product that promises a solid, peaceful nights' sleep. While its long delivery time does dampen the bed frame’s appeal, the balance between style, durability and affordability it offers still makes it a worthwhile consideration. Wouldn't it be delightful to relish its coziness as you unwind from a hectic day?
