Antique Bed Mattress :: FAQs

Measuring a Wooden Bed

Always use a tape measure with a rigid edge for accurate measurement

Measuring the Width

If your bed has wood blocks at the end of the sideboards, measure between them at both the head and the foot.  If you don’t have blocks, measure at the head, middle, and foot.  Need help? Contact Us.

Measuring the Length

Measure the length on both sides, usually the length of the side boards, and take the shorter measurement of the two. Antique Bed Mattress image If your mattress needs to be notched, around a post or curved footboard, for example or like the Lentini mattress to the right, we would appreciate your sending us a photo or a drawing. For rounded corners, make a template of the exact curve and mail it to us.

Need help? Contact Us.

Measuring the Height

Measure from the top of the slats, L-brackets, etc., to where you want the mattress to come on the headboard, usually where the ornamental part begins. This is your Total Set Height. The height of your bed is very important in determining which mattresses will fit. It is always helpful if you email us pictures of your bed.

Also, measure the height from the floor to the top of the slats/L-brackets.

Measuring the Width

Antique Bed Mattress - L shapeDo the rails look like an upright L like this ? ...........................
upside down Lor an upside-down L like this? .......................................

If an upright L (designed to hold the slats), measure the width at the head, middle, and foot, and then take the narrowest figure.

If they form an upside-down L, measure the width of the rail (usually 1 1/2”). Then measure from outside of rail to outside of opposite rail at the head, middle, foot.

Measuring the Length

If your side rails are thicker at the ends where they connect to the foot and head boards, you can either double your slats (one on top of the other—make sure to secure them together) or use 2 x 4s for slats. Both options enable you to have a longer mattress.

Measuring the Height

Measure from the top of the slats to where you want the mattress to come on the headboard, usually up to where the ornamental part begins. The Total Set Height very important in determining which mattresses will fit your bed. If your rails are upside down, measure from the top of the rail to where you want the mattress to come on the headboard, usually up to where the ornamental part begins. When you order, be sure to include the width of the side rails, so we can build a drop to keep your foundation from sliding.

Also, measure the height from the floor to the top of the slats.

When I bought my antique bed, they told me it would take a standard full size mattress?

All antique beds use odd size mattresses and need to be measured individually.

I'm not sure how to measure for a custom made mattress?

Click on How to Measure your Bed
(It is always helpful to email us pictures of the inside corners and headboard.) We will contact you with any questions.

I'm not sure what the height of my mattress should be?

Click on How to Measure your Bed and read the section "Measuring the Height". If you’re still not sure, send us a picture of your headboard with a piece of masking tape marking where you think the mattress should come.

How will I know when my order has been shipped?

We will email you when your order has been picked up, your PRO Number (Roadway’s tracking number), and the EDD (Estimated Date of Delivery), along with your service center’s toll-free number.

Do you make 3/4 beds?

Yes, but a 3/4 bed is a general term for beds less than full. Beds were made individually before mass production, so the standardization was not set. Each 3/4 bed is unique; the size can vary a few inches. The general measurement for a 3/4 bed is 48 x 72. Most beds do not measure this 3/4 bed size; therefore, we recommend that you measure your bed individually.
