bedframes and mattresses

sorry if this site is not the all singing all dancing number that might be expected.

we`re guessing that you are a returning customer wondering if we still make the bed and mattress that you bought years ago - this profile fits 99% of our customers

so there`s no great sales pitch - you probably have a good idea of what you want already ... but if you are a new visitor you can be reassured that we can rely on our reputation so strongly

if you don`t see what you are looking for on the website, please e-mail with enquiries



prices include VAT at 20%

dimensions quoted are mattress sizes: overall frame size is +50mm(2") width and + 125mm (5") length
beds and mattresses can be made to any size - sometimes for the same price!

clearance under siderail is normally 8"(200mm). most beds can be made with increased height, up to 15"(300mm) for all and 24"(600mm) for some. for non-standard height, width or length please e-mail with particulars.
nearly all the beds shown are in pine: we`re waiting to get some new pics of beech frames.

If you live in Naples you can hang your bedding out to air on your balcony in the Mediterranean sun. However if you live in Clapham this is not a dependable course of action. So we announce -ta da!

           The Duvet Rail

As you can see the tail end of this bed is high enough that you can drape your duvet over it allowing it to air nicely. So simple even a teenager can do it!
The bed pictured is in beech. Head end is as per type d/s. All other headboard types will also fit.
We were surprised to find that this simple modification has not previously been offered for sale (according to google anyway).

on replacing your mattress...

 Somewhat counter-intuitively a new mattress of the same type may feel softer
 than the old one: on the old one the springs may be still firm but the padding 
 will have packed down hard over the years. The new one with fresh padding can
 by contrast feel softer. This usually takes a few days to get used to 
 (and is especially true of Extra Firm mattresses).

delivery

  alphabeds delivers locally (west wales), along the M4 corridor and inside the m25.
  delivery outside of these areas is possible: please email for details.
  example price: for a double bed and mattress in london delivery will be 15 if customer 
  will help with mattress, 25 if an extra helper is required. this price includes assembly.
  all alphabeds items are individually made to order - we do not keep stock as there are too
  many variations possible.
        

old mattress disposal

  (it`s worth checking with your local council - they will often take large items for
  free or a small charge.) 
  all wood bedframes 5 if ready dismantled, 20 if dismantling needed
  mattresses  single 10, double (120cm+) 20, king (150cm) 25, 150cm+ 30
  divan bases as per mattresses but this does depend on type: some divan bases
  are too large and may need to be broken up: worth planning for.
