UK Move into Larger Beds

By , January 24, 2011 1:07 pm

Growth in Larger Bed Sizes

A recent report in the  UK has reported a 45pc growth in 2010 in sales of king-size and super-king sized beds. The sales growth of larger beds appears to be on an ever upward trend with sales of even larger beds such as the Regal sounding  Emperor (7 foot wide) and even Caesar Size (8 foot wide).

Standard Double Beds on the way out

Realistically most homes can accommodate a Super King Size Bed  which is 183cm x 200cm(6′ wide 6′ 6″ long). This sounds like a very large bed but it affords just the same space as 2 single beds placed together.Compare that to say a standard Double Bed at 135cm wide (4’6″) and you can begin to see why people are trading up to larger beds. We are also much taller and heavier than our parents and grandparents  so it seems that the days of the Standard Double Bed are numbered.

Bed Functionality Changing

There is also another trend at work here. With the bed dominating more space in the bedroom, the functionality of it is evolving.  With people using their bed much more to watch television, listen to music or use their laptop.

Beds Getting Deeper Too

While beds are certainly getting wider and  longer the mattresses are getting deeper. Often much deeper. The growing popularity of Mattress Toppers is accelerating the trend. The standard mattress depth is 20cm (8″).
 It is now common for mattresses to be 26 cm (10″) , 32cm (12 “)  or 35cm (14″) deep and 16” deep and deeper is not unusual.

UK Bed Linen Manufacturer has the answer

Getting bed linen to fit bigger deeper beds can prove difficult and frustrating with many High Street Stores failing to stock bed linen for larger beds. Happily UK based manufacturers such as Between the Sheets make bed linen for any size or shape of beds. They can even discuss your particular requirements over the phone or you can order online at www.betweenthesheets.co.uk

Buying Bamboo Sheets

Bamboo Bed Sheets

Bamboo bed sheets are increasingly popular alternatives to the traditional bedding fabrics. If you are looking to buy a set of bamboo bed sheets here is a few things you should consider when making your purchase.

Better than Cotton

Compared to Cotton, Bamboo is much more eco friendly and sustainable. Take care to select a Bamboo fabric that has been made from naturally cultivated Bamboo. Bamboo is more resistant to soiling than cotton and is naturally anti bacterial, anti static and highly dust mite resistant. It is ideal for those with sensitive skin and allergies.You should carefully consider the percentage of bamboo fabric in the bed sheets. You will find different compositions of bamboo, ranging from 100% bamboo down  to 40-60% bamboo/cotton mix. The cotton / bamboo mixes are more prone to shrinkage of up to 10%.

100% Bamboo Bed Linen is the answer

To enjoy all the benefits of bamboo bed sheets you should  buy 100% bamboo bed sheets. 100% Bamboo bed sheets are generally more expensive than the bamboo – cotton mixes but they are much softer . Pure 100% bamboo bedding controls your body temperature while you sleep keeping you warm in winter and cool on summer.

You should check out the thread count of the bed sheets. The best Bamboo Fabric has a 250 + thread count and the quality and softness compares to a  1000 thread count in Cotton.

Finally, you might want to think about the colour of your bed sheets. Generally only white is available but some specialist companies have a wider range of colours available . Click here to view.
