Odd Size Bedding
Odd size bedding like 3/4 (three quarter) bedding needs frames too. Yet, this can be a difficult bed frame to find. Bed frames are often designed to fit today’s standard bed sizes only. Because three quarter bedding was a popular size in the early 20th century, many of these beds are still in people’s homes. Many antique beds are this size. The measurements are 48″ wide X 75″ long, while some are only 72″ long.
What type of bed frame works with three quarter bedding?
Recently a customer contacted us about her antique three quarter bed. She also had odd size bedding, measuring 48″W X 72″L, that fit it perfectly. Because her room was small, she wanted to do away with the footboard. She planned to attach the headboard to the wall. I suggested the Twin to Queen Clamp Style Bed Frame that adjusts using clamps to any size from 39″ wide to 59″ wide. This allows for a perfect fit of odd size bedding.
What was the outcome?
Over the weekend, I received a nice email from my customer in Kentucky saying that she was very happy with the solution. “Thanks for helping me find the right adjustable frame for my 3/4 short frame bed. Saved me lots of money buying a frame instead of replacing the mattresses.” She went on to say, “I was so happy to be able to solve the problem without breaking the bank. It is very sturdy now. We had wooden bedsides with wooden slats that were not very sturdy. We actually had a couple to land in the floor one night and just remained there till morning. Lol. This way we feel everyone can get a good nights sleep. Thank you for your help. Your service was great and so quick.”
Most important of all, it looks beautiful in her guest bedroom.
