Q : We have a double bed where the mattress is sagging; the base
looks fine. We purchased the bed many years ago and opted for an
extra long bed (6' 10" long) although the width is a standard
double bed. Do you manufacture mattresses (as standard) to this
size that can be used to replace the one we have?


A : Our mattresses are only 200cm long approx. 6'6".The mattress
is the heart of your bed and the part of the purchase you should
spend most time and money on. The secret of having a good night's
sleep is the mattress and bed base you choose. Always remember that
a 'bed' is a mattress and a base working together, you should not
consider them in isolation and should ideally always try them
together. We always recommend you buy them together because the two
are designed and manufactured to complement one another in terms of
support. Your mattress may show visible signs of wear and tear but
the base will have had equal pressure and strain - it just doesn't
show quite so clearly. Another point to watch is making sure the
dimensions of any base and mattress separately sourced are
compatible; two kings might not be quite the same size!
