The center piece of any bedroom sanctuary is, of course, the bed. Of all of the furnishings in your home the bed is the one you will spend the most time in and which will have the most impact on your health and well-being…so choose wisely.

A healthy bed will have many of the same attributes as a healthy home. It should be:


• able to take on moisture and then dry-out without supporting dust or mold

• easy to clean and sanitize

I use the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own DIY projects – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. 🔨 They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to ⭐ WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans 🤗

The Futon Shop and other alternative mattress shops offer wool as a natural fire retardant and so many options without foam. The platform beds have low voc or zero vocs made by the Amish.

Please help! I bought a bed for my son that had a particle board base. After two years is started gassing. My son's room smelled like particle board and I had to get rid of the bed. I bought a solid wood bed but the matress, the side that was on the particle board absorbed the smell. I washed the cover and aired out the mattress (high end hybrid foam) but the smell is there. I am worry about my son's health. Is there any solution to get rid of the smell without buying a new matress?
