How to find Bed Linen to fit your new bed

By , September 3, 2014 11:33 am

Can’t find Bed Linen to fit

Many people are finding that when their lovely new bed is delivered they can’t find any bed linen to fit properly.  No matter where they look they find only standard bed sized bed linen.

Too many bed sizes

Beds used to be made in the country that they were going to be  used . Almost every country has slightly different bed sizes. For instance all Scandanavian countries have longer beds as the average user is somewhat taller than other Europeans. That is why standard UK sheets don’t fit Ikea beds. Today, due to globalisation you may find that your new bed  is not a standard UK size and  bed linen that fits is almost impossible to  find.

The UK bed linen industry has in general failed to respond to this issue and stubbornly only produce standard UK sizes. If you buy an unusual size bed you will  find sourcing bed linen almost impossible.

 Where can I find bed linen to fit my  bed?

Happily there is a  UK  based bed  linen manufacturer specialising in producing bed linen to fit any size or shape of  bed.

Finding Bed Sheets to fit your bed. Do your sheets “ping off” during the night

By , January 8, 2014 11:35 am

Do you suffer the frustration of having your fitted sheet “pinging off” during the night. You wake up and find that one or more of the corners of your fitted sheet have come off the mattress during the night. At the best its a regular irritant and at worst you  have to disentangle yourself each morning . The reason that this is such a common problem is that mattresses on beds have got deeper and most companies that make bed linen are still making sheets that are too shallow for the new deeper mattresses. Added to that the vast majority of bed linen is manufactured in the far east and importers have to buy shipments of finished bed sheets by the container full . This means they generally only buy fitted sheets for one depth of mattress and for standard bed sizes only.

This creates a problem for consumers as today’s beds are made with deeper mattresses and toppers. The advent of Ikea throughout the world (they only make beds and mattresses in Swedish sizes) and other international brands mean that the “Double” bed  you buy is not a UK Double but may be an EU Double. They are not the same size! Happily help is at hand. Jane Allen the Bed Linen Expert at Between the Sheets explains.” We make bed sheets to fit any size or shape of Mattress and Bed. Simply let us know the width , length and depth of your Mattress and we guarantee to make bed sheets that will fit your bed.

How do I get fitted sheets to fit my bed properly?

By , February 15, 2011 11:59 am

Finding Sheets to fit my bed

Many people experience difficulties when trying to find the correct fitted sheets to fit their bed. Often people buy fitted sheets and then find they are too large or too small to correctly fit their mattress. Often the problem arises with cheap bed linen. Manufactured in huge quantities the sizing is at best approximate and there is little  quality control.

To ensure you get bed linen to fit properly you need to buy from a manufacturer of quality bed linen. But before you buy you must carefully measure your bed.

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
