Thinking of buying a new bed? Make sure you get the right size!

When buying a new bed always double check the size of your current bed or mattress to ensure that you buy the correct corresponding size.

For example if you already own an IKEA (European) King-sized mattress, note that it will be 3 inches longer than a UK standard size (see table below).

Please note that we can make to measure to any size according to your requirements.

At Green Woods Furniture, we use imperial sizes and our ‘standard size’, means UK Standard.
The metric equivalents which are commonly seen on bedding will fit the imperial sizes but the measurements themselves are usually slightly out.
