What changes can be made to a Natural Bed Company bed or futon mattress?

Are you looking for a bespoke bed? As all our solid wooden beds are made to order we can be more accommodating than most companies when our customers require alterations to be made to the design of the bed base.

Below you will see the most frequently asked questions asked by our customers on this topic and our answers to them….

“I purchased my mattress elsewhere, can you make alterations to the design to accommodate it”?

The mattresses we offer range in size from 16 to 24cm in depth. If you have decided on a sprung mattress for example, these can be anything up to 40cm deep! Therefore to ensure that your beautiful wooden headboard is still visible above the mattress, pillows and duvet, we can lengthen the headboard legs to keep everything in proportion. We would charge just £20 to make this alteration.

If your existing mattress is a non standard or European size we can manufacture your bed to fit. Just get in touch with the exact mattress measurements and we will quote you a price.

“Can you add a footboard to the bed”?

On certain designs, such as the Tibet, Zanskar, Malabar and Senegal we have previously added foot-boards to the base at the request of customers. Simply add 15% to the overall cost of the standard design. If you are interested in making this alteration on another style of bed, just get in touch and we’ll do our best to create a footboard that will work with the design. To give you an idea of the foot-boards that can be added, take a look at the detail photographs on both the Tibet and Zanskar pages of our website.

“Can you match the colour of my existing furniture on my Natural Bed Company bed?”

Colour matching to another timber or stain is most successfully done on pine. If you can send us a picture of the colour you wish to match, our lacquering department will create some samples we can send out to you. If we are successful with matching the stain, we can then process your order and put the bed into production. Staining hardwoods can be trickier, but not impossible. We can never guarantee that we can get a perfect match but we’re more than happy to give it a go!

Made in Britain by us our futon mattresses can be made in a choice of sizes and cover colours

“I need a custom size futon mattress. Can this be done?”

In the past we’ve made futon mattresses for boats (lots of funny angles there!), for non-standard size beds and lots of other things in between. If you let us know the measurements of the mattress you require, we’ll find out if it’s possible to make!

  1. Hi, am trying to source a futon for my campervan conversion but can’t find the correct size. The frame is a 3/4 double so about 1040mm width with cushions 1100mm width. The length is 6″6′. Would it be possible to make a futon to fit this bed and if so, how much would it cost?

    Many thanks for your help

    1. Hi Alex
      The price would be same as for a 120x200cm futon. Choose the thickness and colour you want and then it’s best to phone your order through on 0114 2721984
      Best regards
