Oddly-Sized Mattresses Can Keep You Comfy in Any Setting

Updated: May 6

This is where custom mattresses come in. Custom mattress companies cater to those whose sleep needs don't fit the mold. They offer a world of possibilities beyond the standard sizes. Imagine a mattress that perfectly contours to your angled wall, or one that splits in half for easier movement (perfect for those tricky RV bunk beds!). Feeling creative? You can design a one-of-a-kind mattress shape or incorporate a handy hinge for versatile use.

The beauty of custom mattresses is that they can accommodate both specific needs and unique desires. Even if you don't require a completely custom shape, there are a surprising number of less common mattress sizes available. A reputable custom mattress maker can create these for you, ensuring you get the perfect firmness and materials to match your preferences. You can customize every element of this bed. You can make it as wide as you want or as long as you need it to be if you're taller. Gone are the days of your feet hanging off the bed. As well bespoke mattresses can give you unique sizes like a custom short Queen RV mattress. As well, round platform beds are becoming the brand-new craze for custom beds. It's easy to see why you should invest in a custom solution to unlock a new world of restful slumber.

While traditional mattress sizes have persevered for years, they don’t take into account individuals with unique and distinctive needs. In fact, traditional mattress sizes might be doing more harm than good for you, especially if you need extra space to feel comfortable while you sleep.

The good news is that there are custom mattress factories that can create unique beds that cater to your needs. Go with a not-so-standard mattress size, or a completely custom shape. Maybe even add a hinge to your mattress or replace your sofa bed with something that’s actually comfy! The options really are endless.

But you don’t have to be creative to find the right custom mattress. You’ll find that there are several odd mattress sizes that might already cater to your needs. You can’t find them on retail floors, but a quality custom mattress maker can easily get one of these delivered right to your door, all to your desired firmness and material specs, too.

California Queens & Kings: The Best Custom Mattress for Tall Sleepers

Traditional mattress sizes have failed to capture the woes of being tall. If you’re over 6”, it can be difficult to find a bed that’s comfortable to sleep in, especially if you lie on your back or stomach. If you sleep on your side, you can still angle your legs. This can, however, disturb your partner, and even more if they’re just as tall as you. What’s a great solution? A custom California Queen mattress. Or California King - you do you.

A California Queen is just an extra-long queen mattress is 84” long and 60” wide, significantly longer than the traditional 80” long and 60” wide Queen bed. A long Queen mattress can make a small bed more comfortable, allowing you and your partner extra space for your long legs.

Want Extra Width but Have No Room for a King? Go Olympic

Ever feel like a standard queen-size mattress just isn't enough, but a king-size is simply too big for your space? The Olympic Queen custom mattress offers the ideal solution. This custom bed size provides a luxurious 6 inches of extra width compared to a standard queen, bringing you closer to the comfort of a king-size without sacrificing valuable floor space.

At 66" wide by 80" long, the Olympic Queen is the perfect bed for couples who crave a little more breathing room at night. Those who find a standard queen a bit too snug will find the Olympic Queen provides the extra wiggle room needed for a truly restful sleep. This size is also ideal for larger individuals seeking a more spacious sleep surface.

Don't be fooled by the "custom" label – the oversized Olympic Queen is a bed size readily available from many custom mattress companies. They can craft your Olympic Queen to your exact specifications, ensuring the perfect level of firmness and material to match your sleep preferences. Ditch the squeeze and discover the blissful comfort of an Olympic Queen mattress – it might be just the right fit for your unique sleep needs.

Custom RV Beds: The Solution to Stiff Sleeping on the Road

Hitting the open road is an adventure, but a restless night in your RV can quickly put a damper on your trip. Stock RV beds are notorious for being uncomfortable and poorly made, offering a far cry from the sleep sanctuary you're used to at home. Don't sacrifice comfort for exploration – upgrade to a custom RV mattress designed to maximize your sleep on the go.

The beauty of custom RV mattresses lies in their ability to adapt to your specific needs and RV layout. You can even design a mattress with a built-in hinge for effortless access to under-bed storage, or one featuring cleverly designed curved corners to grant precious legroom in cramped quarters.

For those fortunate enough to have ample space in their RV, why settle for anything less than optimal comfort? Custom RV mattress makers can create luxurious king-sized mattresses crafted from premium memory foam, ensuring a perfect night's sleep wherever your journey takes you. Why not upgrade to a custom memory foam RV mattress? You can take advantage of the short Queen RV bed size if you don't have enough room for the length of a Queen.

Investing in a custom RV mattress means prioritizing quality sleep, a crucial element for a successful RV adventure. A custom mattress tailored to your RV and sleep style allows you to wake up refreshed and ready to conquer the next leg of your road trip.

Keep Your Loved Ones Close (But Not Too Close) with a Family XL Mattress

Does your family co-sleep and need a giant mattress to do it comfortably? Consider the Family XL mattress. This family king bed is double the size of a traditional king-sized bed, meaning it can fit a couple, and a few rugrats, with enough room to spare.

This oversized King bed mattress is 84” inches long and 144” inches wide. A Family XL mattress is a fantastic option for parents whose kids are still co-sleeping. The other benefits of this oversized bed are that it can be fully customized on each side to cater to different sleep profiles. And since it’s 84” long, it’s also a good mattress option for people who are tall, or those who want pets to sleep at the foot of their bed.

Other Giant Mattress Sizes Accommodate Larger People

If you’re a larger person and/or overweight, you need a mattress that has the construction support you need, but you also need a mattress with a little extra room. If your bedroom can handle it, there are three other oversize mattress sizes you can have made custom:

  • Texas King: 80” W x 98” L (Another great mattress option for tall people!)

  • Wyoming King: 84” W x 84” L

  • Alaskan King: 108” x 108” (Also a good option for co-sleepers.)

The New Guest Room: A Wide Daybed Does Double Duty

Guest room by day, cozy hangout by night? The wide daybed offers the perfect solution for maximizing space and functionality in your home. Wide custom daybeds provide all the comfort of a sofa bed mattress, minus the hassle of unfolding and refolding. Plus, you can pair it with a charming antique daybed frame for a touch of timeless style.

But the benefits of wide daybeds go beyond aesthetics. They boast a significant width advantage over standard daybeds, making them ideal for comfortable lounging or even sleeping soundly. The real magic unfolds when you consider the addition of a custom trundle mattress for the daybed underneath. Instantly, your guest room transforms into a versatile space that can accommodate overnight guests or simply offer extra sleeping arrangements when needed.

Imagine a guest room that seamlessly transitions from a welcoming hangout space to a comfortable sleeping area for one or even two guests. Wide daybeds with trundle options offer unparalleled flexibility, perfect for modern living. No more sacrificing style for functionality – a wide daybed with a custom mattress ensures both comfort and adaptability in your space.

Creating the Perfect Custom Mattress for Your Needs is Simple!

The custom mattress ideas above are just ideas to get your mind rolling. There’s a chance you might want something even more unique or less extravagant to fit your sleep needs.

The possibilities are endless if you decide to go with a custom mattress factory or manufacturer.

A myth that continues to persist is that custom beds and mattresses are expensive, but that’s far from the case.
