Measurements

Width of bedheads

Our standard width for all bedheads is below. They are made “oversized” to accommodate the additional width of a doona and/or blanket. We are however happy to design a bedhead to your exact specification.  If you would rather a wider bedhead to encompass side tables or perhaps you need a narrower bedhead to allow for windows or light fittings either side of your bed, simply email us with your design brief.

Single  –  100cm wide
King single – 114cm wide
Double – 144cm wide
Queen – 160cm wide
King – 190cm wide
Super King  – 210cm wide

Width of beds

Our upholstered bed base surrounds are made to accommodate mattress measurements that are standard in the industry as below.  The finished width of the bed finishes at the above measurements for a bedhead.  Wingback designs – please allow 16cm in addition to mattress width.

Single  –  92cm wide x 188cm Long
King single – 107cm wide x 203cm long
Double – 138cm wide x 188cm long
Queen – 153cm wide x 203cm long
King – 183cm wide x 203cm long
Super King 204cm wide x 203cm long

Height of bedheads

The upholstered component of each bedhead is 120cm high except the Rupert design which is finished at 110cm high.  The extra height is achieved in the L-Shaped leg.  Any height up to 155cm is possible; it is just a case of letting us know what you would prefer.  If you are unsure, then we have a “formula” in determining the best height for your chosen design based on your mattress height so can certainly guide you as to what we believe will work!
Dependant on bedhead design, we generally like to see 70cm – 80cm of bedhead above the mattress.

Depth of bedheads

The standard depth of our bedheads is 7cm. The Albertine, Kensington, Soho, Tilbury, Mayfair and Waldorf are approximately 10cm deep due to the nature of the deep buttoning in these designs.

As each design is custom made, we can tailor this depth to suit certain requirements.
In situations where there is minimal space at the end of the bed, we can reduce the depth if required.  Alternatively designs can be made deeper if you would prefer.
