How do I measure a mattress for my antique bed?
If you need a unique mattress size without any unique corners or shape:
- Simply use a measuring tape to take the measurements of the width and length of your bed.
If you need a mattress with a unique shape or corner design:
- Remove the bedding from your mattress.
- Place your mattress onto a large piece of paper such as builder’s paper, which is commonly used to protect flooring from home improvement projects and is available at your local hardware stores. You may need to tape the paper together to make a large enough template for your bed, but one roll should provide enough paper for this project.
- Use a carpenter pencil to trace the outline of your mattress to create a template of the bed size you want. Be sure to trace the mattress along the edges while looking down so that the pencil mark is barely along the outside edges of the bed.
- If you have any specific mattress thickness requirements, please be sure to mention this as well.
- If you do not already have a mattress to work from, simply cut a large piece of paper into the size and shape you need. Make sure to place this template in the space to ensure the template fits your space properly.
- You can always bring the mattress into our showroom so our staff can take the measurements for you.
