As soon as you contact Emporio BEDS we will ask you about your requirements, so that we can focus on satisfying them.
The very first thing we will ask you is, “what size of bed are you considering?” That is why our very first BLOG is about MATTRESS SIZES. Then you size and weight plus your preference for springs or latex or memory foam and finally your budget.
You may well respond to our question with, “well just a normal size I suppose” but actually there are more than 20 different sizes and names in the market, from Small Single to Californian Super King Size. The aim of this Blog is to guide you through the range of options, (see the table below.)
The mattress size is what defines the size of the whole bed. Any box, bed frame or divan must match this size to create a set. We will help you mix and match the options to find a set to meet your needs and budget. If it is a cot; a small single; a double; King; Super King; Emperor; or even a bespoke size mattress, we will always have a solution for you.
On the chart below you will see UK and US sizes plus those used in most of Europe and the specific IKEA sizes. We produce a special set of products that match the IKEA beds. This allows you to source or replace the mattresses of IKEA size from an alternate supplier.
Note: IKEA is a registered international brand. Their own products are sold within their IKEA network. We can only provide you with our own brand, made to match IKEA sizes and your IKEA bed frame.
Looking at the first 8 entries in the Mattress Size Table it would be easy to assume that single beds are really popular. This is indeed true but it is the number of different ways they are used, which accounts for the cluster of very similar sizes.
Many are intended to be spare or occasional beds and hence are not as luxurious as their larger relations. There are also plenty of children using them and growing into the longer version over time. Add to this the bunks; folding beds; and stackable frames in small rooms and the market size increases yet further.
One of the seven types of Double bed, or “cama de matrimonio,” as the Spanish say, is found in most households and they still dominate the market. The familiarity of this size of bed set means that many people refer to them as the standard bed despite the variations between different products.
The easy supply of bed frames, bases, bed linen and other items, encourages many to stay with these medium sized mattresses rather than seek to replace them and everything else, in a larger size.
Moving to King size and beyond has an impact in many ways, rather like a family with two children suddenly adding one or more. Yes you can still buy linen for up to 180 cm but it is not so readily available and certainly 190 up to 210 or more means a specialized supplier will be required.
The top of the market manufacturers of high quality mattresses will often make everything bigger to suggest value for money as well as the sense of space for ultimate comfort. A large bed will always make a considerable impact but the bedroom will have to be large enough to accommodate this monster in its midst if the effect is to be entirely positive.
