Why Would You Need a Custom Mattress?
Mattress sizes have varied throughout the years. There was probably a time in your parent's or grandparent's lives where the Twin size was for single sleepers and the Double (or Full size) was for couples, and that was it! In the 1950s, Simmons made the Queen and King size beds popular. They're the standard sizes for master bedrooms today.
However, many people have antique frames they'd like to use, which don't fit the new standard. Many people also find themselves needing custom sizes when they're putting a mattress into a boat, rv, or semi truck.
Buying a Made-To-Order Mattress
Shopping for a standard size mattress is easy. Current bed frames are usually designed for one of the seven common mattress sizes and you have plenty of options to choose from. However, sometimes standard size mattresses won't work and you’ll need a custom-made mattress.
Non-standard size mattresses represent less than 20% of the mattress market here. So, they aren't very popular among major manufacturers. It can be very difficult to find a store that does affordable special size mattress orders.
US-Mattress is happy to provide our customers with very flexible custom mattress sizes at affordable prices. We offer several options for special ordering mattresses with custom dimensions. You can still choose from a range of comforts to suit your personal preferences while getting the exact size you need down to the inch.
Make sure to measure your frame or foundation carefully before placing your custom mattress order. Custom size mattresses are non-refundable. Measure and re-measure to be sure you have the exact length and width you want, so you can sleep comfortably with your new custom mattress!
In the past, some manufacturers made box springs that were smaller than the mattress. We highly recommend that you measure the box spring and the mattress individually. If the mattress and the box spring are the same size, you can go through the ordering process on our website. If your mattress and box springs are different sizes, please contact us by phone or e-mail to order a different size box spring with your mattress.
Today's average headboard is 54 inches tall. Today's average mattress set is 21 inches tall. Antique frames often have lower headboard heights, and sometimes today's tall mattress sets cover most of the headboard and footboard.
Unfortunately, this means that the mattress could cover the beauty of your antique bed. We've included the height of each mattress on each of the product pages so that you can consider mattress height when you make your decision.
Box Spring Height
The customary height of a box spring in the past has been 7.5 inches. The 5.5-inch box spring came into play as a way to compensate for the increased height of modern mattresses. We offer box springs measuring both 5.5 and 7.5 inches tall.
Both box springs are the same in quality and will adequately support your new mattress. They just offer different options for aesthetics and total mattress height. Please select the appropriate size from the drop-down box when you are ordering.
