Will Your Mattress Fit?

Before buying your mattress, you need to make sure it will fit the proportions of your room, and importantly, be able to get into your home in the first place. Here are a few things to consider to avoid unexpected issues when your mattress arrives.

Check The Dimensions

Make sure you check and write down the precise dimensions of the mattress you’re buying (found on our product pages) so you know exactly what you’re working with.

Check the length, width and depth of your mattress.

Manouvering The Mattress Through Your House

We want you to be delighted with your Feather & Black mattress and don’t want you to suffer the heartache of discovering that it doesn’t fit into your property. So please take a few moments to be absolutely certain that it will. Whilst the mattress may fit perfectly in your bedroom, you need to be sure that it will pass through the lowest and narrowest restrictions in your house to get there.

Check the dimensions of your doorways.

Managing The Staircase

Often the lowest point might be somewhere on the staircase. The smallest measurement is not necessarily a vertical measurement from stair treads, but often the distance between the lowest point of the ceiling over the stairs, taken at 90° to the angle of your stairs.

Check the clearance area above your stairs.

Negotiating The Narrowest Points

Now thinking of the width of your chosen product, the narrowest point to consider will often involve the staircase again, particularly where there is a turn. This will be a measurement taken across a corner where two walls meet, at the point where an obstruction, such as a bannister, is met.

Check the turns and obstructions.

It’s also a good idea to remove any pictures or freestanding lamps that might get knocked en route.

Plan Out Your Room

It’s important to make sure you can visualise the space you’ll have in the room when your bed and mattress are in place, so we recommend mapping it all out on the floor with masking tape. You can then walk around the room and see what space you’re left with and decide if you feel it’s enough or not.
