We understand there is nothing better than delving into a gorgeous new bed and knowing you have picked the perfect one for you and your home. From the excitement of choosing your beautiful French bed frame to pairing it with our luxurious French bedding, there are so many exciting possibilities and opportunities.
When it comes to beds, we know that size matters. We’d always recommend choosing a bigger bed (if you have the space) for comfort and luxury, especially when sharing with a partner, or welcoming in the kids on a Sunday morning. We do know there may be some confusion when it comes to the size of beds and which one is the largest, so read on to discover which is right for you.
What is the biggest bed size?
The largest bed size available in the UK is the Emperor Bed. Therefore, if you're looking for a sumptuous luxury French bed to sink into after a long day, or for sitting and drinking your Sunday morning coffee whilst reading your book – the emperor bed really is the perfect choice. There is of course room to stretch and roll, and when paired with the perfect mattress and fine linen, still provides a cosy escape for you to retreat to.
Naturally, the bed is the most important part of the bedroom, and we believe that an emperor bed is the piste de resistance!
Emperor Size Mattresses
An emperor size bed is made to fit a 7ft by 7ft mattress, which is the largest standard mattress size available. We would recommend the Vispring Imperial Luxury Mattress for your emperor bed, offering high level comfort, hand-crafted from the most luxury quality natural materials – it’s completely delightful. We also absolutely love our Natural Luxury Mattress, made by hand in Suffolk with stitched borders and natural wool tuffs – the perfect grand French mattress to accompany your new investment. It’s also worth mentioning that you can enjoy 10% off all of our luxury mattresses, so there is no better time to treat yourself.
How do I Get An Emperor Bed Up The Stairs?
You have chosen your gorgeous emperor bed, but now you have to get it up the stairs. It may seem a daunting task, but there a few things we recommend to help make the process as easy as possible. Before you purchase, we suggest measuring your staircases and corners – keeping in mind the bed dimensions – especially the headboard. With the Emperor bed being the largest, it is important to keep note of the length, too, and ensure it can be pivoted up the stairs and around the landings. It is a great idea to create a cardboard cut out the same dimensions as your new emperor bed to ensure it can be maneuvered safely before you take the delivery. You can find our complete guide on bed and mattress fitting, here.
How do I style my Emperor French bed?
Now the exciting finishing touch – styling your beautiful new French bed. From blankets and bedspreads to our luxury pillows – there are so many gorgeous options. We absolutely love our Boutique 400 Egyptian Cotton Luxury White Bed Linen Set, which is made in Italy from the finest Egyptian cotton. It is widely used by 5* hoteliers as the way the fabric moves and feels is sublime, perfect for a luxurious night's sleep as well as looking exceptional too. To keep you cosy in the upcoming winter months, we recommend styling this with Wide Knit Lilac Blush Blanket. It can also double us as a cosy throw for when you’re curled up watching TV or reading your favourite magazine – not only this, but it also gives your room a subtle pop of colour too which we absolutely love.
