Family beds - durable, natural and above all: large
Family beds made of solid wood are like a chameleon: they always adapt to the individual situation. A new family? Then please get a bed in XXL. The little ones are growing up and sleeping in their own room again? In no time at all, the sleeping area is transformed back into a double bed. Durability and extension sets characterise our ekomia family beds.
Calmer nights with co-sleeping
Especially if you are still breastfeeding your child at night, you will get more sleep with a family bed: You don't have to get up every time to get to your baby's bed. Your child lies next to you according to the concept of co-sleeping and you can feed it directly. This way, you not only benefit from more sleep, but also from a balanced breastfeeding routine.
As another option, you can of course position the baby or children's bed on the side of the parents' bed. Just like with a family bed, such a additional bed gives you the option of flexibly arranging your sleeping space. However, a shared lying surface definitely leaves more room for cuddling.
More space with family beds
Days full of action with a child? Many parents then wish for a good night's sleep. But the nights are not always so restful. Especially when the offspring sleeps in the bed with you. What initially sounds like space problems and lack of sleep is hardly an issue with a family bed.
Depending on your individual needs, you can put together comfortable and, above all, large beds where you can find enough space to sleep as a family. You choose the size of the family bed according to your personal needs: Depending on how many children sleep in the bed, you can choose between different bed widths.
What size do I need?
The size of the bed influences whether your family feels comfortable in it. Fortunately, family beds come in many different variants. But which bed width makes sense? Many couples use beds that are 140 cm, 160 cm or 180 cm wide - the standard length is 200 cm.
With two children who should also find room in your family bed, a minimum width of 240 cm is recommended. What counts here is the individual need for sufficient space for a healthy sleep: if you like it bigger, you should rather go for 270 cm wide family beds.
The choice of the right mattress is also linked to your wishes as a family: You can either complement the bed with individual narrow mattresses or with one large and one small mattress. This also depends on whether different degrees of firmness are preferred in the family or whether you prefer to do without a visitor's crack.
What else you should know
To ensure that all family members feel comfortable on the large sunbathing lawn, you should clarify a few aspects in advance: Who should sleep where in the bed? Which mattress is suitable for you? If there is no fall-out protection, the adults should sleep on the outer edge of the family bed. However, such a protection can easily be attached to your bed afterwards.
Especially if you want to accommodate an infant in your bed, it makes sense to choose a hard mattress: This way you protect your child from lying down awkwardly at night. At the same time, you as parents do not sink in too deeply - reducing the risk of rolling onto the baby.
Family beds from ekomia
Our family beds are simple, timeless and high quality. They not only match your taste, but also the rest of your bedroom furniture. The white colour scheme leaves all your options open: Colour accents, wild mixes or a chic, clean overall look - the choice is yours.
And the decision for a XXL bed is not set in stone in the end: The size of the bed can be changed again as desired. You can enlarge a double bed in just a few steps with an extension and turn it into a family bed. Offspring moving out of the bedroom into their own children's room? Turn the massive bed back into a lounging area for two.
Natural climate for a healthy sleep
Our Bio beds are made of certified real wood and have a simple but stylish design. What does that mean? First and foremost, that you consume sustainably and act in a resource-conscious way: for every tree felled for our furniture, a new one is planted.
The natural glaze of our wooden beds also ensures a pleasant climate in your bedroom. The biological treatment of the solid wood results in a healthy room climate and good air is known to improve the quality of sleep.
Downsize family beds
On the other hand, you can be sure that your solid wood bed will remain a valuable part of your bedroom for many years: A family bed can be made smaller again. So it will remain in use even when your children no longer want to cuddle up in bed with you.
Lots of choice, always timelessly beautiful.
At ekomia, we offer you simple and stylish bedsteads that impress with both their character and their ecology. From baby beds to children's beds to futon beds and large lounging areas for the whole family: each of our sleeping places will last for years. Promised.
Our beds are made of solid wood and naturally treated. The Swebe series also scores with a light design thanks to its floating look. The white colouring is refreshing and natural at the same time: the knots and the characteristic wood pattern are clearly visible under the organic glaze. A dream in white.
Organic furniture with style from ekomia
In the development of our furniture, we attach great importance to a minimalist, timeless design based on the Scandinavian design. You won't find any fashionable or ornate furniture in our shop, but we still work with great attention to detail.
The foundation of ekomia is the most sustainable production possible: certified European solid wood, glazes from natural raw materials and textiles from controlled organic cultivation. We take care to use only health-compatible, vegan materials without synthetics or allergens.
Solid natural wood
We mainly use hand-picked solid wood, a natural material that creates a natural atmosphere in the home and is particularly durable. For connectors we rely on proven quality components and the solid wood know-how of selected production partners.
Direct distribution & DIY
Through direct distribution we can offer better prices than in traditional trade. We try to offer a suitable piece for every purse - even if it is a DIY instruction to build it yourself.
