Beauty and Brains, Finally

Forget what you knew about bed bases. You don't need to choose between beautiful, durable and affordable. Koala has spent two years developing the first bed base to give you all three. Our timber platform base is all beauty, with the brains to match.

Vanilla Malt Bed Base

Clever Storage.

Tuck your extra pillows and blankets out of sight when you’re not using them. Perfect for those fancy throw pillows that look great but aren't quite up to the comfy test.

A Bed That Floats.

Our oversized platform design is a thing of luxury, giving the illusion your bed is floating in space and at just the right height.

Cable Management.

Keep your cables hidden and devices charged, all within arm's reach with our clever cable management. Avoid the awkward phone lean and keep your devices close by.

Treat Your Mattress Right.

Each panel of our platform is precisely cut timber, with ventilation that ensures airflow and the perfect sleep environment for your mattress.

Made Strong, To Last Long.

Our bed base is inspired by nature's technology. It's engineered from natural timber, but we use a honeycomb core to keep it lightweight and still incredibly strong. It'll handle weights of up to 600kg and remain supportive for years to come, no matter how many times you move it.

Build It In 4-Minutes.

Easy to build and easy to move. The tool-free and slat-free design comes together like a jigsaw in under 4-minutes. It's simple for one person to assemble and is durable enough to build again and again.

Try It for 120-Nights.

Get the same risk-free 120-night trial period across the whole Koala range. You’ve got 4 months to make sure you absolutely love our bed base, or your money back. In Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide we’ll even pick it up for free.

Free 4-Hour Delivery.

Let your mattress sleep easy on our timber bed base knowing that we provide free delivery on all our products.

Protection & Care

Natural Timber Bed Base

There is nothing you need to do, the bed base is finished in a water resistant coating. Do not submerge in water, clean with a damp cloth. Do not varnish. Please do not sand, cut or modify any pieces as this will void your warranty.

Assembly Instructions

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Assemble The Bed Base?

Once you've unpacked the boxes, all you'll need is 4 minutes to assemble the bed base. You'll find the full instructions inside box 2! Check out the assembly video on our timber bed base page to see how it's done.

How Do I Recycle The Packaging?

Cardboard boxes can be recycled in your kerbside cardboard and paper bin.

Some councils will allow “LDPE 4” in your regular plastic recycling. If yours doesn’t, you can recycle the soft plastic at any REDcycle collection point (found at most Coles and Woolies stores). Please cut the plastic into A3 size sheets before putting them in the bin.

Can I Paint Or Stain The Bed Base?

Technically you can but the results aren't guaranteed! Painting or staining your bed base may affect the warranty.
