How to buy your perfect bed

Buying guides
Bed Buying Guide

When choosing your new bed, size will be the first consideration, so it is important to know your room dimensions.

There are significant size differences between a Single, Double, King and Super King sized bed so having your measurements to hand will ensure you’re ready to pick the perfect bed that will also leave you with circulation space in your bedroom. Each bed frame will have its own dimensions which will exceed those of the mattress.

If you are considering a 6ft wide Super King bed, please check that you have 6ft 8in of clearance between the third step of your stairs and the ceiling, as it is important not to bend the mattress when fitting it.
