6 inches doesn’t seem much, does it really make a difference?

When you stretch out in bed and extend your feet – particularly if you sleep on your side – you can extend your length by 4 inches or more. Traditional bed sizes are based on measurements from years ago! Our average height is increasing due to advances in health and nutrition (25% of millennials will be taller than their parents) and having a bed custom made and then sourcing the correct size bedding can be very expensive and difficult.  Not just that – it can be difficult to fit larger beds up staircases and into our bedrooms.  A king size or superking bed offers an additional 3” of length – The PillowShelf offers an additional 6” on top of that – Truly life changing!

What sizes is the Bedstretch PillowShelf available in?

Available in 6 different sizes to match the width of the most popular bed sizes – 2 foot 6 inches, 3 foot, 4 foot, 4 foot 6 inches, 5 foot and 6 foot. Translating bed sizes isn’t an exact science, so we’d recommended you measure your bed to be sure, but as a general guide, we would classify:

  • Small Single – 2 foot 6 inches or 75cm
  • Single – 3 foot, or 90cm
  • Small Double – 4 foot, or 120cm
  • Double – 4 foot 6 inches or 135cm
  • King – 5 foot or 150cm
  • Super King – 6 foot or 180cm

Can I adjust the height of the Bedstretch PillowShelf?

Yes, the Bedstretch PillowShelf is supplied with legs, with each leg having up to 6 inches (150mm) of height adjustability to get the fit exactly right for your bed.  We want to ensure that you get the best height fit possible, so on receipt of your order, we will fit the most appropriate leg length for your bed.

How big is the bed with the Bedstretch PillowShelf fitted?

Your bed will be six inches (150mm) longer than it currently is!
In the UK, standard bed lengths are 6 foot 3 inches (190cm) and 6 foot 6 inches (200cm). With a Bedstretch PillowShelf fitted, your divan becomes 6 foot 9 inches (205cm) and 7 foot (215cm) long. We are currently developing a 9″ version.

How do I know what height I need?

On receipt of your order our team will contact you to identify the height of your bed prior to assembling and shipping your PillowShelf. This is so that we can add the most appropriate fixed upholstered leg length which will have a further six inches of height adjustment. Simply measure from the floor to the top of your current mattress where the pillows sit. You will need to adjust the Bedstretch PillowShelf during fitting so it sits just below the level of your mattress.

Why is it height adjustable?

It’s not just because people have different divan heights. It’s also because as mattresses age, they compress – you may find you need to adjust the Bedstretch PillowShelf slightly as time goes on. It will also depend on the firmness of your mattress and the weight of the occupant.

Will the Bedstretch PillowShelf work with any bed?

No, it only works with divan or frame beds that can stand alone if the headboard is removed. It can be secured through the headboard attachment holes, sitting on the floor between the divan base/mattress and the wall or headboard.

How long does it take to fit?

The Bedstretch PillowShelf can be installed and removed in a matter of minutes. It is freestanding so you don’t have to secure it unless you want to.

My headboard has four securing screws, can I still use the Bedstretch PillowShelf?

Some very tall headboards are attached with four or more securing bolts. The Bedstretch PillowShelf comes with two headboard spacers but you can purchase more pairs of spacers from our shop.

Do I need to buy a bigger sheet?

No, you continue to use your existing bedding. Each Bedstretch PillowShelf comes with a special sized sheet to use as a cover should you wish to use it (we don’t cover our headboard so why cover the Bedstretch PillowShelf), and you can buy more PillowShelf sheets separately if you wish.

If you usually use a flat sheet, this will easily extend over the Bedstretch PillowShelf and still allow you to tuck in the corners tidily or even achieve a hospital corner, if that is your preference.

Can I have a sheet to go over the top?

Yes! It is supplied with a special sized sheet and more are available to purchase separately. Made out of a 200 thread count percale fabric, they fit snuggly on the Bedstretch PillowShelf and as the Bedstretch PillowShelf sits under your pillows, the cover will not need to be washed as frequently as the bedding.

Is it heavy?

No – depending on the size, it’s about the same weight as a travel cot. Trials have shown it’s easy for people of any age or technical ability to carry and install.

Can it fit at the bottom of the bed?

Not really, the Bedstretch PillowShelf is designed to go at the top of the bed. It works by extending your bed from the head end, meaning your pillow will be half on the bed and half on the Bedstretch PillowShelf and you gain that extra six inches of your mattress to stretch out onto. You could place it at the foot of the bed but you will feel the join.

I’ve already got a big bed, do I need a Bedstretch PillowShelf?

We’ve found that people can benefit from the Bedstretch PillowShelf no matter what size their current bed is. Adding six inches to the length can make the difference between a reasonable night’s rest and an excellent sleep.

Is it health and safety compliant?

All materials are tested to BS7177 to ensure relevant fire safety requirements for mattresses and divan beds for domestic use and to CRIB 5 for hotel/accommodation provider purchasers.

What is sent out with my order?

Each Bedstretch PillowShelf comes with its own travel bag (whilst stocks last), a sheet, set of headboard spacers, full instructions and a year’s warranty!
