It’s your bed – but longer!
A standard UK Divan bed is 6’3” (about 190cm) long. The Kingsize and Superking beds are wider but also about 3” longer providing a length of 6’6” (about 198cm). Adding a Bedstretch PillowShelf to any divan bed makes it 6″ longer (about 15cm).
So your existing standard bed with a PillowShelf immediately becomes 6’9” (longer than a Superking bed) and if you add a PillowShelf to a Kingsize or Superking bed you get a massive 7 foot sleeping length. Same bed, Same bedding – just longer!
We currently have two main products.
- The Single Folding PillowShelf for 2’6” and 3’ (75cm and 90cm) wide divan beds is vertically adjustable to suit a range of different bed heights.
- The Double Folding PillowShelf for small double 4’ (120cm) wide, standard double 4’ 6” (135cm) wide, Kingsize 5’ (150cm) wide and SuperKing 6’ (180cm) wide divan beds is also vertically adjustable to suit a range of different bed heights.
All models are provided with Headboard spacers, a fitted sheet, and a carry bag for ease of transport if you want to take the PillowShelf with you when staying at hotels or relatives.
Made in the UK from sustainably sourced lightweight wood, cushioned with a layer of foam and fully upholstered in a choice of four standard colours: Cream, Sand, Seal or Slate (see colour chart). Complies with all UK BS Safety Standards.
How it works
Fitting the PillowShelf takes a few moments. Unfold the legs, adjust to the correct height for your mattress using the adjustable legs, and finally slide it in place at the head of the bed. You can connect it to your bed using the two headboard spacers which screw into the headboard securing locations provided as standard on all divan beds.
The ideal height for your PillowShelf is 1.5 – 2cm (3/4 inch) less than the height of your mattress depending on how firm it is. One of the winning elements of the PillowShelf is that its height can be adjusted to suit the individual. Even if you change your bed or mattress, or if your mattress settles, you can adjust the PillowShelf so that it is undetectable to the sleeper.
Fitting a Headboard
You don’t need to fit a headboard, but the headboard spacers allow you to attach the PillowShelf even with a headboard. Simply screw the headboard bolts into the other end of the spacers. Simple!
The Single and Double Folding PillowShelfs come with two spacers to fit a headboard but If you have a tall headboard you can order an additional set of two spacers to allow for four attachment points. These are available as an optional extra from our shop page.
