5 Reasons Why A Custom Mattress Is Always the Best Choice for Antiques

Updated: Oct 3, 2023

An antique bed is an investment and should be treated as such. While it’s tempting to try to find a mass-produced mattress for your antique bed, this often leads to a mismatch of materials, possible sizing issues, and a lack of support that can cause long-term damage. Instead, always opt for a custom 3/4 mattress to ensure that your antique bed is properly cared for. Let’s look at five reasons why a custom 3/4 mattress is always the best choice for antique beds:

Custom Mattresses Guarantee a Perfect Fit

With a custom 3/4 mattress, you can be sure that the mattress will fit perfectly within the frame of your antique bed. Often antique beds were not made to the standard sizing structure we have today. This means a custom 3/4 mattress is really the only way to make sure there won’t be any sagging or bulging which can cause damage over the long-term, as well as the simple hassle of always have to readjust your bed every time you need to switch out bedding.

Our Custom Mattresses are Made of the Finest Quality Materials

Custom mattresses are made with higher-quality materials than what you’d find in box stores, so you can rest assured knowing that your 3/4 mattress will last for many years on your antique bed. Additionally, custom 3/4 mattresses often come with features such as cooling technology and adjustable firmness levels, both of which can help to improve your sleep quality.

Custom Provides Superior Support to Standard Mattresses

Generic 3/4 mattresses are often not designed to provide the kind of support that antiques need. A custom mattress, however, is designed with your specific needs in mind, providing a more tailored level of support depending on your individual needs. Customized firmness and support is good both for your sleep health and well-being, but also for the longevity of your antique bed.

Properly-Sized Mattresses Prevent Damage to Your Antique Bed Frame

We mentioned this before, but it’s important to repeat: an ill-fitting 3/4 mattress can cause permanent damage to your antique bed. If it’s too big and bulging around the frame, then it’s putting pressure outward on the posts, which were not designed for it over a long time. Too small of a mattress isn’t spreading the weight enough, putting extra force towards the center of the bed. A custom ¾ mattress is the only way to absolutely guarantee that your antique or vintage bed will last for years to come.

A Custom Mattress Can Be Made for Hypoallergenic Materials

For antique bed frames that may have accumulated dust or allergenic materials over the years, custom mattresses can help. You can choose hypoallergenic materials for your custom mattress. This can include dust mite-resistant covers and fillings that are less likely to trigger allergies. These options help reduce the presence of common allergens, such as dust mites, pollen, and pet dander.

A simple change in material can enhance the air quality in your bedroom. As a result, you can enjoy a more restful and allergy-free sleep. You can ensure that your antique bed remains a safe and comfortable place to rest with a custom mattress. This isn't a common issue in well maintained or updated frames but one to be aware of if you suffer from allergies or asthma.

Custom Mattresses Can Match Special Antique Features

Antique bed frames often boast unique and captivating special features. Anything from hidden storage compartments, intricate carvings, or ornamental details. Custom mattresses can be designed to complement and work seamlessly your antique bed’s design. For example, if your antique bed frame includes under-bed storage drawers, a custom mattress can be made with flexible support. The storage can be easily accessed this way.

A custom mattress can be designed with specific contours to showcase an antique bed’sdecorative elements. By customizing the mattress to these special features, you not only enhance the function of your antique bed but also showcase its artistry. You can create a visually striking bedroom ensemble that honors the bed's unique design.

A Single, Long-Lasting Mattress is More Cost-Effective

Many people assume that a custom mattress will cost more than a generic one found in a store, but this is often not the case. Our custom made ¾ mattresses have quite a bit of reduced overhead compared to ones found in retails shops, partly due to the fact that we aren’t paying for the shop itself or the costs of the bigger factories needed for large-scale productions.

Our mattresses are shipped across the country and custom made for each of our customers, without the need for either of these massive expenditures, meaning we save on this end and pass the savings down to you.

A custom 3/4 mattress is always the best choice for antiques because it is designed to fit perfectly within the frame of your bed, is made with higher-quality materials, provides the necessary support, prevents damage, and is often more cost-effective. Investing in a custom 3/4 mattress for your antique bed is the best way to ensure that your bed is properly cared for and that you get a good night’s sleep.
