What is an Extra Length Bed?For those who struggle with the issue of feet hanging over the edge of the bed many of the mattress brands produce extra length beds. The standard length is 188cm, but for those who are over six feet tall, this just isn't long enough.
The length of an extra length bed is 200cm, which caters perfectly for taller people. Just make sure you buy extra length linen!
Choose the bed size that fits youThere are so many factors to consider when looking at bed sizes. Another very important thing to consider is the actual weight capacity of your bed. The bigger the bed, the larger the weight it can support, so this is important to remember when choosing bed sizes.
