Hey There Sleepyhead!
Beds are made in standard sizes, such as divan, single, double, queen, and king sizes. It is recommended that you find a bed size that is at least four inches (10cm) to 8 inches (20cm) longer than the tallest person who will sleep in it. The following measurements can be taken to ensure you get the right bed size.
Most beds have a side beading which prevents the mattress from sliding off. Take the inner measurements inside the beading. In case your bed has no beading take the measurement end to end. Its also a good idea to measure the height from the floor level to help you decide the mattress thickness.
Buying a standard size mattress helps get quick delivery and save a bit on the pricing. The Indian beds follow the Imperial system (inches) and the standard lengths are 72 inches (6 feet), 75 inches (6.25 feet) and 78 inches (6.50 feet). The standard width is 36 inches (3 feet), 48 inches (4 feet), 60 inches (5 feet) and 72 inches (6 feet). Please refer the standard size chart.
Customized Size: In case the above standard sizes are not suitable to your needs, we can customize most of our products to your specific size. Non-standard sizes would require longer shipping time. Also we recommend customizing the mattress rather than putting an incorrect standard size mattress.
Deciding Mattress Thickness: As a thumb rule, thicker the mattress, the more comfortable it will be. But do consider the following points when deciding the mattress thickness:
Height from floor: When deciding the mattress thickness do consider the height at which your mattress will be placed. Ideally the total height (including the mattress) from the floor level should not be more than 24 inches. For elders we recommend only 22 inches total height, for ease of getting on and off the bed.
Headboard: Depending on your bed design, try and visualize how much of the headboard will be covered once the mattress is placed. Customers at times buy too thick a mattress, covering the headboard significantly which spoils the aesthetics of the furniture.
