Bed Size Chart – Colour Coding

Bed and Mattress by colour

Adopting best practices within any industry inevitably takes time. The NBF idea of labeling mattress sizes by colour is one of these which we support and over the coming months we’ll be implementing this throughout our point of sale online and in our bed showroom in Warrington.

The simplicity of the chart can be seen below and whilst this is predominantly useful for stock management and our delivery team, the value to the consumer of this information is significant. NBF members and the bed trade in the UK as a whole works towards standardised sizing of single, double, king size and super king size beds, mattresses, headboards, fitted sheets and so on. From making sure your new headboard will fit on your bed to mattress fitting your bed frame, the ability to respond to colours along with sizes should remove doubt and confusion from customers minds.

The chart below will become more visible across our website over the coming weeks and months.
