One of the most important things that define us here at Hillsdale Furniture is our breadth of design and style. All of our pieces are designed in-house, and we cater to a lot of different tastes. This is evident in everything from our barstools to our dining rooms, and especially in our beds. Our collection of bed frames come in a variety of sizes, styles, colors, and materials. We love all of our beds, but today we thought we’d try and help our customers narrow it down a bit, by focusing on the pros and cons of our wood, metal and upholstered options.
· Classic style
· Easy to clean
Beds constructed of solid hardwood, like those from Hillsdale, are usually designed in classic styles (like sleigh) that will look classic, sophisticated and on-trend well into the future. Thankfully, they are also constructed of one of the most durable materials available, meaning they will physically endure just as long as their style does. They are also a breeze to keep clean—a little dusting, a little polish from time to time, and you’re done.
Solid hardwood construction brings with it two main drawbacks—weight, and cost. Wood beds can be a pain to move, making them less ideal for families that move a lot. Wood is also one of the pricier materials available, though some types more than others.

· Easy to move
Metal beds (with a few exceptions) are typically made of more affordable, and simpler to move, materials. They are lighter, simple to place or assemble, and can pack quite the contemporary style punch when done right.
· Less durable
· Often trendier
Beds constructed of metal often involve a few pieces to assemble, making them both a bit of pain to put together, and a headache to move in their own way. Many come in trendy designs that won’t stand the test of time as easily as wood, though that’s easy to avoid by choosing pieces with simpler styles.

· Warmer presence
· Wide variety of colors, fabrics
Upholstered beds are becoming increasingly popular, most likely due to their versatility. On top of adding a warming, comfortable presence to any bedroom, they come in a variety of fabrics, and in any color you could possibly want.
· Tough to clean
For families with bed-residing pets, upholstered beds can be tough. Pet dander, not to mention dust, can make upholstered beds appear dingy and worn, so they require a lot more maintenance than wood or metal options.
