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.

treats 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.

frequently asked questions

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.

Yes they are a few differences:

Core material
We are using a 100% poplar core and birch faces for the White Timber Bed Base. The Natural Timber Bed Base is using a plywood and honeycomb construction.

The material is PEFC certified. The plywood is manufactured in Spain, the timber is coming from Spanish and French forests and are 100% owned and controlled by the plywood manufacturer.

Material Thickness
The Natural Timber Bed Base plywood is 20mm thick. The White Timber Bed Base is 18mm thick.

Coating method
The coating is different, instead of a water based treatment, we are using advanced UV curing powder coat paint technology: this method is 100% VOC free, there are no solvents or hazardous materials, meets OH&S requirements, there is a minimum material waste as we can use up to 99% of the paint during process. Lower carbon footprint compared to other process.

Faces are painted, edges are not.

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.
