Custom Mattress Sizes To The Rescue

Are you having trouble finding the right size mattress for your particular needs?

7th February, 2018
by Carl Walsh

 Maybe you’ve got an odd-size bed frame, perhaps you’re tall and need additional length to get comfy when you go to bed, or is your room is too short or narrow for a normal-sized bed?

Well, there’s no need to despair; these days, it’s easier than you might think to get your hands on a custom-made mattress designed especially for you. If a custom-size bed or mattress is what you need to get the great night’s sleep you deserve, it’s about time you took your measurements and solved the problem once and for all.

Perfect for tricky spaces  

Many antique bed frames originate from other countries (including France), and they come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. However, you can also face some more modern challenges when you’re choosing the right size mattress, both on land and on the water! If you have a boat or a barge, you’ll need a mattress that can fit through a tight hatch and slot into a very particular shape such as on a narrow boat. If you’ve got bedrooms up in your loft too, then the low ceiling could provide a challenge – and fitting beds beneath a window frame can also prove problematic.

If any of these problems sound familiar, then it’s well worth taking a look at this handy mattress size guide. Measure your own bed frame and mattress to see how they match up. If you can find an ‘off-the-shelf’ mattress to fit, that’s great. But if you’re unable to find the measurements you need for your mattress listed in the guide, then a custom-made solution is going to be your best bet.

The joys of made-to-measure

If you have a bed frame that isn’t quite the usual size, or a small box room, a simple standard mattress, unfortunately, don't tend to be the ideal fit. But if you thought getting a made-to-measure mattress would cause you an even bigger headache (and break the bank, too), think again – it’s easier than you might think, and you can even place your order online.

You should make a made-to-measure mattress your go-to solution if you want a specific size and shape to fit your bed. With a bespoke mattress, you can select the length, width, and depth of the mattress you need, and your mattress will be created to fit your exact dimensions. In many cases, you can even choose which particular type of mattress you want – take your pick from memory foam, latex, sprung and many more options.

Could a special size mattress be the answer?

Before you decide to go for a custom-sized mattress, it could be worth considering an alternative route. Depending on your measurements, rather than having a mattress made from scratch, you might just need a special size mattress for a special size bed. Maybe you’ve got a non-standard UK bed size – for example, it could just be a wide single bed or a short double, or an EU or American bed size.

In this case, a wide range of special-size mattresses are available, with a huge selection of types on offer. These include pocket spring and rolled mattresses, as well as latex and memory foam options. It’s could be the quickest and easiest answer to your sizing issues.  

It’s simple to buy online

With your perfect measurements in hand, it’s simple to create your perfect mattress in the comfort of your own home. Look online and you’ll discover a world of custom mattresses to choose from – and reliable retailers like us here at Bed Guru offer a wide range of handmade mattresses and we are more than happy to help you create your very own custom-made and special-size mattresses.
