Enjoy A Luxurious Night’s Sleep In….A Shipping Container!

Known for its toughness, size and portability, the humble shipping container has traditionally been used for shipment, storage and handling purposes. Over recent years however, designers and engineers have found ingenious and unusual alternative uses for the trusty container. In 2009, Daniel Noiseux created the Müvbox, a pop-up restaurant which features a fully operational kitchen as well as dining furniture. More recently, we saw the birth of the Vissershok, a primary school classroom containe...

Sleeping Right Can Help You Lose Weight

Sounds too good to be true? It isn’t. Scientists in Canada have found that sleeping for at least seven hours per night can help you lose weight, particularly if you’re on a diet. According to research documented in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, the brain releases enhanced hunger signals when you don’t get enough sleep, which results in a change in appetite levels. This leads to us wanting to eat more. A long term experiment was carried out involving people who slept for less th...

Don’t forget to use masking tape or painter’s tape to keep your lines looking precise and clean. 2. Now that your bedroom walls have been freshened up with ...

Extra Hour In Bed Anyone?

Its quickly feeling like autumn outside again due to the change in weather and the nights drawing in.  This means that it also won't be long until we start to leave work at tea time in the dark again! This year, the official date for the clocks to go back an hour is October 28th, but from the sound of general conversation  in the office we could do with it even sooner than that!  The seasons just don't seem the same any more and I think the fact that it has rained all summer long has tricked ...

London 2012 Sadly Comes To An End...

This week we saw the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Paralympics which meant that sadly, the whole Olympic event has now come to an end.  The nation was absolutely gripped with both the Olympics and the Paralympics of this year and we couldn't be more proud of our magnificent athletes who won so many medals and created a new era of fabulous memories that will last throughout our history to come. In Huddersfield, where Wooden Beds is situated, we were lucky enough to have a golden post box p...

New Products - Oakland Ottoman Storage Bed

I remember my lovely Grandma once saying to me as a child - 'a tidy house is a tidy mind' - now this is an old adage that I'm sure many of you have heard yourselves before.  Because of my Grandma saying this to me as a child, I have always tried to keep my house tidy and I have to say - it really does make me feel more serene when I get home from work and the house looks tidy rather than getting home and there is still washing up from the morning to do! This adage was also proved by a company i...

When night time falls, most of us want to cozy up in bed and go to sleep.  Sleep at night time has been done since the beginning of time - there is a connection between our bodies and when light falls that is almost like a program that tells our bodies to sleep.
