01 Jul Basics on Specialty Mattress Sizes
When it comes to a comfortable mattress, different people need different sizes. Some individuals might be just fine with a twin or full option, while couples often need a king or queen size for both partners to sleep comfortably.
In some cases, people have a need for specialty size mattresses. At 2 Brothers Mattress, while we know this can be a tough area given the way major manufacturers work, we’re here to help if we can. We offer a huge selection of mattress sizes, from king and queen options down to full and twin mattresses, and we’re also here to help with specialty needs. Here are some basics on the common formats clients may need here, plus what to think about when ordering one of them.
Common Specialty Mattress Formats
Here are a few of the most common and well-known specialty mattress size requests out there today:
- Hi-riser: Referring to older bed frames that require thin mattresses, these are typically 7-9 inches in thickness, with springs in them. They’re not especially common today, but will sometimes be found in older homes.
- Short queen: While the standard queen-sized mattress is 60″ by 80″ in dimensions, the short queen is a bit shorter in length — 75″ to be precise. You’ll often find these in RVs, campers and other places where space is at a premium.
- Round mattress: Most are familiar with mattresses in rectangular or square shapes, but round mattresses are just as the name would imply: round. They can offer a unique sleeping experience for some people and might be found in high-end hotels from time to time.
Check With Manufacturer
As you may have already guessed while reading to this point, finding certain specialty mattresses may involve a bit more effort than simply heading down to the local store. In some cases, you may find what you’re looking for from a national retailer like us here at 2 Brothers Mattress, while other times it might be necessary to go through the manufacturer directly. It really depends on the size, shape and style of mattress you require.
No matter what, our team is always here to help. We’ll do our best to get you the right mattress for your needs, even if it means pointing you in the right direction to a manufacturer or retailer that can better assist. Simply contact us today and let us know what you’re looking for — we’ll be more than happy to help out.
Not Just for Preference Reasons
Generally speaking, those interested in specialty mattresses will be looking in this area based on specific needs. For instance, if you need a new mattress for an RV, a short queen is going to be the best option in most cases. While there’s technically nothing wrong with purchasing a specialty mattress for simple aesthetics or preference reasons, know that these mattresses are designed with a specific purpose in mind.
As such, it’s important to understand what that purpose is before making your purchase. If you’re not sure, our team here at 2 Brothers Mattress would be happy to help explain things further and recommend a few options based on your needs. Simply contact us today and let us know what you’re looking for. We’ll be more than happy to help out.
