Bedrooms are really much more than just a place to sleep in; for most people, it is a sanctuary and a private space. It is only fitting to want your bedrooms to reflect your tastes. The right bedroom furniture does not only make your room more convenient but also allows you to claim the space as truly your own.
Antique beds are now finding their way into modern bedrooms. Beautifully crafted and well-maintained, antique beds can provide an aesthetic focal point and serve as a graceful counterpoint for the rest of the bedroom furniture.
Getting the Perfect Mattress
One of the main considerations for an antique bed is to ensure that it is as comfortable as it is beautiful. Should your antique bed come with a second-hand mattress upon purchase, it is best to buy a new one. For several health reasons, mattress re-use is not a good idea.
Because antique beds may not always conform to modern standards of bed measurement, it is always a good idea to measure the bed base yourself so that you can determine the exact size of mattress that will be needed. You will often find that antique beds tend to be bigger than conventional modern beds. For instance, a standard single mattress may be too wide for your bed whiles a double-sized mattress would be too big. In this case, you will need to find an odd-sized mattress; browse through our Odd Sized Mattress inventory and find the size you need. If none is available, you can have one specially made to your specifications.
Finding the Perfect Bed Base
Unfortunately, people in the previous centuries did not really pay that much attention to back support or optimal sleeping posture. In those days, most mattresses were really nothing more than huge pads filled with materials such as down or cotton. For this reason, most antique beds are constructed with bed bases that cannot really accommodate the structured modern mattresses which we find necessary. Most antique beds have slatted or solid wooden bases but you may need to put in a custom-made one which has features such as solid-top constructions or sprung edges. Your antique bed supplier can likely give you recommendations about this.
