We sell a huge number of beds for big people, beds for heavy people. But we also cater for those that want a big bed in size. We are talking about beds for tall people, extra long beds.

30% of men under the age of 25 are now over six feet tall. That was a finding of the Official Health of the Nation Survey 1998. They predicted that the average Briton has got taller by an average of .75 inches per generation.

We’ve been selling big beds for many years. In June 1995 we had a call from a hotel that urgently needed two 7ft long beds. They were needed for the West Indian fast bowling duo, Courtney Walsh (198cm) and Curtly Ambrose (201cm). We came up trumps and duly delivered 2 Relyon beds in time for their arrival. Not only did we have a great result being able to make the delivery in time, the 3 day game played at Hove was won by Sussex by an innings and 121 runs.

Big Beds for tall people

Many Relyon beds and mattresses can still be made to any size and shape, as can all of our Hypnos beds and mattresses. Both manufacturers offer a truly bespoke bed. These big beds are all hand made by highly trained craftsmen in the UK.

What are the sizes of standard UK beds?

How big is a single bed?

A standard UK single bed measures 3’0” x 6’3” / 90cm x 190cm.

How big is a double bed?

A standard UK double bed measures 4’6” x 6’3” / 135cm x 190cm.

How big is a king size bed?

A standard UK king size bed measures 5’0” x 6’6” / 150cm x 200cm.

How big is a super king size bed?

A standard UK king size bed measures 6’0” x 6’6” / 180cm x 200cm.

Some standard UK beds are big beds, but if you need a really big bed, or one that is extra long, you need to look at bespoke options.

Bespoke Beds for Tall People

Hypnos bespoke beds

Hypnos are award winning makers of handcrafted, bespoke and made to measure beds & mattresses. Experience the comfort of a Hypnos bed with a Royal warrant. There’s always been something special about waking up in a Hypnos bed. They believe that bed making is an art form, not a mass-produced commodity. That’s why Hypnos design and build every bed that leaves their factory individually by hand, by a highly skilled craftsman. Each bed is a unique bespoke creation, taking into account the comfort and support needs of the individual sleeper.

Mattresses for tall people

The Hypnos team is made up of people with a passion for what they do. They are designers, engineers, craftsman, technologists, farmers and growers, who care about the quality of materials and the environment.
