Why Would I Buy a Custom Made Bed?

In a time when most consumer products are mass-produced and inevitable obsolesce is just part of the package, it can feel refreshing to purchase an item for your home that has been labored over with care and attention. Knowing that something was built just for you immediately imbues it with significance and offers a greater sense of ownership by giving you a more direct connection to its purpose and origins.

At Francis Lofts & Bunks, we want the people who use our beds to feel that connection, because our goal is to create a quality product that will last a lifetime. Every bed we sell is custom built to the order specifications given to us directly from the person who will be using it. Here are the reasons we do this things this way:

To Fit Your Style

Your bedroom is the one place in your home that is all yours, where you don’t have to design it to accommodate anyone but yourself (and whoever you may share it with). Or if you’re decorating a guest room or vacation rental, it’s a chance to get creative. No matter the purpose of your design, the bed is the centerpiece of any bedroom, so having one built to your style specifications makes it easier to create the space that you want. One of the many ways that people can to customize their beds is by choosing from one of five stylish finish options to get the color that will best suit their existing décor or help inspire a new look for the room.

To Be the Size You Need

Just like every sleeper has unique comfort needs, every bedroom has unusual sizes, low ceilings, or any number of interesting characteristics can make it hard to find a bed that satisfies both design and function. A custom bed is great for a room with a unique size or shape, because you can have it built to meet any specifications. Since we build every bed to order, it’s possible for us to build the bed to whatever size your space requires. And for us, that doesn’t mean just the width and length of the frame, but also the height. Though our adult loft beds are usually built for ceiling heights of 8, 9, or 10 feet, we can make them shorter or taller, depending on the size of your room (and how far you’re willing to climb).

For Quality Assurance

By individually handcrafting each bed, we’re able to provide a product that is built to last a long time and satisfies the specific needs of our customers. To us, it is important to oversee the entire manufacturing process to ensure everyone receives a quality bed that lives up to our rigid expectations. Of course, it helps that we use super durable aluminum to make the bed frames, but since they’re also built to order, our expert designers can guarantee that every piece is carefully constructed and of the highest quality before it’s packaged and shipped out. This is especially necessary when it comes to something like an adult loft or bunk bed, where safety is the top priority.

To Be Eco-Friendly

Since we make every bed to order, we’re not also creating the excessive amount of waste often caused by mass production. Building a totally sustainable product starts with ethically sourcing the raw materials from a responsible source. That is why all of our beds are LEED certified and are 100% recyclable. After that, our practice of custom building every bed means we’re only using as many of those materials as we need to fulfill our orders. Plus, the fact that we only build durable products that last a very long time also suggests we’re not creating excessive waste on the backend.

To Give an Air of Distinction

Simply put, when you have a piece of custom built furniture, you have something that is one-of-a-kind and made specifically for you. Whatever your reason for buying that bed may be, it’s ultimately your imagination that brought it to life. What’s cooler than that?
