Grandeur, class, sophistication, history. Just some of the words that spring to mind when you think of antique. When it comes to antique beds, you usually find them in palaces, old fashioned hotels and historical buildings but there are a lot of vintage collectors out there that love an antique bed. They come in many different shapes and sizes and it's often hard to find a mattress to fit. This is where we come in. We’ve put together a guide showing you, not just the benefits of an antique bed but how we can help you find your mattress solution.
What are antique beds?
Antique beds are often wooden bed frames that are solid and sturdy and come with a grand design to match. They’re often found in old historical homes or places like Buckingham Palace and are also associated with class. You’ll also find them in TV programmes like Downton Abbey and Game of Thrones, representing the old nature of antique beds.
Due to their old fashioned nature, antique beds come in a whole host of different shapes and sizes. Finding a mattress that fits can be an incredibly difficult task. Whether the bed frame is longer than standard, or wider than a king size bed, it can be a struggle to find something that fits.
Where can I get a mattress for my antique bed?
At Bed Guru, we have a wide range of custom size mattresses to fit all sizes of bed frame. Whether you need something that’s as wide as a king size bed but not as long we can help you with that.
Antique beds will also come in your standard sizes. It’s worth measuring the dimensions of your bed to work out just how big it is. Rather than needing a custom size, you may just need one of the standard mattresses like a double mattress or king size mattress depending on the dimensions of the bed.

What types of mattress can I get for my antique bed?
Just because the bed is old school and antique, it doesn’t mean your mattress needs to be. There’s no better feeling than lying down on a mattress that provides you with supreme levels of comfort. There’s a huge range of mattresses that go with your antique bed. You can choose from some of the following mattresses:
- Pocket Sprung Mattresses
Pocket Sprung mattresses are one of the most popular types of mattress. They have springs within the mattress. This means you actually feel like you’re lying on a mattress rather than sinking into it. If you need something that’s supportive or more than your sleep then they’re perfect.
- Memory Foam Mattresses
Memory foam mattresses are just as popular as pocket sprung and there’s been plenty of debate about why you should choose a pocket sprung or memory foam mattress. They’re built using foam rather than springs contour to the shape of your body to give you a truly personal night’s sleep.
- Natural Mattresses
If you’re a lover of the environment as much as your sleep then a natural mattress will be perfect for you. Natural mattresses are 100% chemical free and give you a luxurious night’s sleep. If you suffer from allergies they’re also hypoallergenic so they help you to avoid allergy flare-ups.
