If you, your partner or both of you are 5’10” or over and sleep in a 6’3” bed then you need a PillowShelf or if you are 6’1” in a 6’6” bed you need a PillowShelf! The extra six inches provided by a PillowShelf is a must to enable you to stretch out in comfort and sleep well.
No more waking up in the night with cold toes poking out of the bed or having to curl up to try to keep those toes warm! If you are the long-suffering partner of a taller sleeper you will love having your side of the bed back again – no need for them to sleep diagonally any longer and push you out of the bed – a good night’s sleep for both of you.
Longer beds are available but with them come the issues of access to the bedroom, longer sheets and the added expense of new non-standard bed. Using a PillowShelf allows you to increase the length of your bed without the need to completely replace all your bedding. You don’t have to try to squeeze a seven-foot bed upstairs and if your pushed for space you can even put the PillowShelf in place over night but take it out in the morning to increase the space around the bed to get dressed.
In the Guest Room
Have you ever wondered why your taller friends and relatives don’t come to stay very often? Perhaps your guest bed used to be your old 6’3” double or your child’s old single and it’s too short for them to get a comfy night’s sleep.
Pop a Pillowshelf in place so it’s always there or if space could be an issue, pop one in the wardrobe for occasional use, and add that all important extra 6” to the bed to treat your guests to a comfortable and cosy night – they will be queueing up to stay more often.
The difference between your feet hanging out of bed, or your feet encased on the mattress and wrapped in the covers is quite frankly life changing. Even tall people deserve a bed that fits.
OR your feet supported by your mattress and wrapped in the covers …
For the Children
It’s a well-known fact that generation by generation we are getting taller. Our children sleep in beds designed for our grandparents. Is your teenage child shooting up faster than you can blink and fast outgrowing their bed? If your child is getting close to 6 foot, you need to consider the length of their bed.
We all need a bed that is about five inches longer than we are tall. A standard bed is 6’3” (190) cm, if your child is over 5’10 they may need a longer bed. You can buy some beds in longer versions but that not only entails a new bed but new sheets and duvet covers and you can’t interchange the sheets from one room to another.
Using a PillowShelf is a clever alternative. You can use their existing bed and bedding, the pillowshelf comes with its own sheet so nothing else changes. Alternatively, you can buy any bed in the shop, your favourite base, your favourite mattress, you can buy it in a standard length and then add a PillowShelf.
Just think, your teenage children don’t have to curl up in bed, you can encourage good quality sleep, promote good back health and less grumpiness.
If you are dreading going away on business or stay with friends, relatives or visit a hotel because you know the bed will not be long enough, why not get our ‘On the Go’ adjustable PillowShelf.
Supplied with its own carry bag, it folds up into a shoulder sized carryon. Installed in minutes on any divan bed, you can use the included PillowShelf sheet or just leave it off. The PillowShelf sits under the top half of the pillow so the sheet is not essential. You will sleep well and enjoy your visit much more in a bed that has been extended six inches to anything up to seven foot in length – Luxury!
You don’t even need to have the same width as the bed you are fitting it to. Several of our customers take a 4’6” or 5’ PillowShelf with them. The smaller PillowShelf is easier to transport and install. For instance a 4’6” PillowShelf will work on a 5’ bed with a few inches difference on either side so will more than adequately support the pillows.
University or College
The University of York say ‘you must sleep well to learn well’ so why not increase your chances of leaving University with a first-class degree!
Beds in Halls are renowned for being short – you can easily make yours longer with a PillowShelf. It’s well known that more time is spent partying and less time sleeping whilst at University so make sure you maximise the short hours you will spend sleeping by being able to stretch out and gain good quality sleep with the help of a PillowShelf. Keep your toes tucked in and cosy and avoid those back problems caused by trying to curl up in a single bunk.
The Single or double transportable or the bespoke PillowShelf can be supplied to suit any width of divan bed. You need to think big to dream big and a big bed will let you realise those dreams. If space is a premium you can slot the PillowShelf in at night and remove it again during the day when it can be folded up and popped under the bed.
Larger Hotel Chains
Who will be the first Hotel Chain to offer a Seven Foot sleeping experience to all guests? In these days where we investigate every facet of our holidays and where we expect the maximum comfort at the minimum cost, it’s all about offering more and charging less for it.
There is a consensus in the hotel trade that the 6’6” superking 200cm bed provides the optimum sleeping experience. Rooms have been designed around this measurement. Whole hotels have been formulated around the 6’6” bed – it would cost a fortune to re-evaluate the optimum bed size.
But as the millennial generation come of age and start to predominate business hotel use, this consensus is fundamentally flawed. Some 6.5 percent of millennials are 6’2” or over. The height percentile increases in management and male categories which means a considerable percentage of business hotel users will be too tall for the standard bed.
Why ignore this potential. Show your taller guests you really care by offering them the opportunity of a longer bed. By keeping a PillowShelf on each landing or in each room you can offer your taller guests a luxurious 7’ sleeping experience in any room as easily as you can offer Irons, Extra Pillows and Hair Dryers.
An additional plus for your hotel ensuring guests return again and again and will help boost those 5* reviews and attract the growing group of taller hotel occupants. Our ‘Just for You’ bespoke PillowShelf can be manufactured to perfectly match your beds and or headboards. They come with folding legs for easy storage in linen cupboards and a range of sheet options to suit everyone.

In Boutique hotels we pride ourselves on the ‘look’ of each of the rooms. Most rooms have been designed specifically with the available room size in mind and it may not be an option to swap these designs about to install a larger bed.
However, this does not need to be a limiting factor. You can offer your guests a bigger bed option with the easily installed PillowShelf. It will be the customer’s choice to maintain the ‘look’ of this designer room or install a massive seven foot sleeping experience. To your credit the customer will recognise the choice, realise the comfort and be sure to book that experience again next time.
Made in bespoke fabrics and colours to match your boutique rooms, a PillowShelf will really tell your taller guests you care. Not only does it make a longer sleeping space for the taller guest but also provides more length for those sumptuous pillows and cushions that go towards making our rooms visually beautiful.
Your taller guests will fully appreciate the extra length enabling them to stretch out in comfort and will keep them coming back again and again.
