How you can tailor a Natural Bed Company bed to perfectly suit your needs…
We understand that there are times when you need a custom made bed, it may be that you need a particularly low bed for an attic space, that you bought your mattress abroad and it’s not a standard UK size or maybe you want to disguise a divan base with a wooden frame – just get in touch. We’ll always help if we can….
Taller, shorter, wider?
We offer a wide range of sizes as standard:
A small single accommodates a mattress 75cm wide x190cm in length
A standard single bed size accommodates a mattress 90cm wide x190cm in length
A ‘three-quarter’ size bed is sometimes called a small double – this size accommodates a mattress 120cm wide x190cm in length
A standard UK double accommodates a mattress 135cm wide x190cm in length, however some double mattresses can be 200cm in length so we always recommend measuring your mattress to be sure. Old imperial sizing can vary a little too as they are based on sizing in inches – again measure your mattress to be sure, we can make you a bed to fit!
A king size bed accommodates a mattress 150cm wide x 200cm in length
A super-king bed accommodates a mattress 180cm wide x 200cm in length
(For more information on mattress sizes click here)
However we can offer special sizes on request….
Maybe you have a US or continental size mattress – we can adjust our beds to accommodate your mattress size. Maybe you have a particular space available and need a narrower or shorter bed to fit? We can make the bed and a futon mattress to fit (just be aware that you may find it tricky to get bedding to match)
Super sized beds for those lucky few with very large bedrooms are also possible – just tell us what you’re looking for and ask us for a quotation. We are always happy to help.
Our bedside tables can also be adjusted in terms of proportions or dimensions – so let us know what you are looking for and we’ll be able to let you know if it’s possible and provide you with a quote. Our Cochin bedside tables were made a special size recently for a customer looking for tall bedside tables – take a look at the image below…
Ensure your mattress fits perfectly….
It may be that you have a mattress that is particularly deep or slim. Our beds are designed to accommodate the mattresses we supply which are approximately 20cm in depth, however we can extend the headboard legs and raise up the position of the headboard panel to allow for a much deeper mattress. The last thing we want is for your beautiful timber headboard to be completely hidden behind your mattress and pillows! We similarly can ensure that your headboard sits at a lower position if your mattress is slimmer than standard.
The headboard option…
Many beds are available with or without a headboard as standard – these models include the Kyoto (shown without a headboard, in solid oak above), Kumo (shown with a headboard in wenge stained pine above) and Kobe – but we can offer many of our other models without a headboard if asked. In order to get an idea of the price of a bed without a headboard – a good guide is to take 15% off the price including a headboard.
We recently supplied a number of our Sahara beds without headboards to a boutique hotel in Brighton. They intend to attach a headboard panel direct to the wall and wanted a simple, well made bed base to match – the Sahara was a perfect choice.
Those wanting a bed for an attic space may need a bed with a low headboard, or without a headboard, to fit the end of bed under low eaves or to look ‘in proportion’ with a room with a low ceiling. Maybe access is the issue? Just let us know what you need and we’ll do our best to find a solution.
Alternatively you may want a taller headboard than our usual design – just let us know the dimensions you are looking for and, if we can do it, we’ll get back to you with a quote.
Looking a bed with a footboard?
Don’t be afraid to ask! If there is a design you like, but you would prefer it with a footboard we can usually supply it. Take a look at our Tibet bed above – with and without a footboard, it’s a design that works well either way. Our Zanskar bed also looks equally good with a footboard – just see below.
There are various ways that you can personalise a bed from Natural Bed Company.
The CHOOSE YOUR COLOUR collection allows you to pick the colour of the headboard – the range of colours is limitless! Whether you want to match the colour to a paint colour, wall-paper or upholstery choices, or want to select your favourite colour by pantone or RAL reference – just let us know. The bed frame is in solid timber (we offer oak or walnut as standard, but other timbers can be requested) the headboard panel is a solid board lacquered to match your colour choice.
The Shetland bed is a new design – a solid timber frame with an upholstered headboard. We offer a range of fabric colours as standard, but we can usually work with your fabric if you have a particular material in mind. Plain fabrics with the necessary fire retardancy certification supplied will attract no extra charge. If you want to supply a patterned fabric we will need a swatch to confirm the fabric quantity required.
Just remember – it’s always worth asking….
