Strong Beds for Residential Homes

In challenging environments such as a residential home for either the elderly or younger people in residential care, furniture especially bedroom furniture needs to be strong and robust.

Our strong beds which are wooden framed beds are craftsmen made from solid wood and can stand up to everyday challenges presented in a residential home. The frame and the slats are crafted from high-quality oak making them strong and durable.

They are ideal in situations where a non-medical bed is required to furnish a private room in a care home, residential home, or assisted living facility.

Our oak beds are built to last so you will not be replacing them any time soon. The oak will retain its good looks and remain sturdy for the lifetime of the bed. It will provide a comfortable and pleasant space for the residents of the home making them feel safe and able to get a great nights sleep.

Single Bedroom

A wooden frame bed is hygienic and easy to keep clean only needing a light dusting with a soft cloth, unlike fabric divan beds which may hold dust and other particles that require specialist cleaning or rigorous vacuuming.

Buying cheaper beds can be a false economy when they may need replacing after a short time or easily break risking residents injuring themselves.

Most of our beds are available in three sizes, single which is the most popular choice for single rooms and then double and king size which are ideal if two people are sharing a room, e.g. a couple in an assisted living home.

All our furniture ranges also have matching bedroom pieces such as bedsides, wardrobes, and chests of drawers. All our furniture is made to the same exacting standards as the beds and will easily stand up to the busy life in any kind of residential home. Being made from solid wood, if a chest or beside is leaned upon for balance, it won’t tip up or break.

Here are just a few of our favourite ranges ideal for residential care homes.

Hardwick Light oak

The Hardwick Light Oak range is craftsman made furniture built with sturdy light American Oak. It is designed with traditional 18th-century styling with a nod to the on-trend simplicity of the shaker style. This furniture has a clean-lined design with no sharp edges or corners. The lacquered finish protects the oak and makes it easy to keep clean and look like new.


Hardwick Light Oak Beds are solidly built and are not flat packed furniture making them stronger and of better quality. They will be delivered right to the location by our fully trained staff, leaving you with no hassle.

The high-backed headboard is a perfect spot for residents to relax and be comfortable in bed whilst sitting up. The slats on which a mattress of choice will sit are solid and are screwed to the base individually making the bed strong and durable.

We have two Hardwick wardrobes, the most popular for single room occupancy for residential care being the single. There is also a large triple available but space would probably limit the use of this wardrobe, so we feature the single wardrobe.

Inside the wardrobe is a full height hanging area so ideal for dressing gowns, dresses, shirts or coats.  The deep drawers in the base is ideal for bulky sweaters and sweatshirts, shoes or anything that needs to be stored away. The drawer bases are solid oak with wooden drawer runners so they will not buckle under any amount of weight or become difficult to open.
