The Importance of Accurate Measurements {#importance}

Accurate measurements are essential when ordering a made-to-measure mattress. Not only does it ensure that your mattress will fit perfectly in your space, but it also helps avoid unnecessary costs associated with returns or modifications. To ensure your mattress is the perfect fit, it's crucial to take the time to measure your space accurately.

Tools You'll Need {#tools}

To measure your space for a made-to-measure mattress, you'll need the following tools:

  • Measuring tape
  • Pen and paper
  • A straight edge or ruler
  • A level

Make sure to use a measuring tape that is long enough to cover the entire length and width of your bed frame.

Step-by-Step Guide to Measuring Your Space {#step-by-step}

Follow these steps to measure your space accurately:

  1. Remove any existing bedding: To ensure accurate measurements, start by removing any bedding, pillows, and mattress toppers from your bed frame.
  2. Measure the length: Using your measuring tape, measure the length of your bed frame from the inside of one end to the inside of the other. Be sure to measure along the inside edge, as this will give you the most accurate measurement. Record the measurement in inches.
  3. Measure the width: Next, measure the width of your bed frame from one inside edge to the other. Again, make sure to measure along the inside edge. Record the measurement in inches.
  4. Check for squareness: To ensure your mattress fits snugly within your bed frame, it's essential to check for squareness. Place your straight edge or ruler along one of the corners and use a level to ensure it is at a 90-degree angle. If your bed frame is not square, you may need to adjust your measurements accordingly.
  5. Measure the depth: Finally, measure the depth of your bed frame. This will help you determine the ideal thickness of your mattress. If you have a platform bed, measure the distance from the top of the slats to the top of the frame. For a box spring or foundation, measure the height of the box spring. Record the measurement in inches.
  6. Double-check your measurements: After completing the initial measurements, it's a good idea to double-check your work. Repeat the process to ensure accuracy and make any necessary adjustments.
