The Big Bed Company - reviews
We are proud of our attention to detail and customer service - to see what people are saying, please go to Press Reviews or Customer Reviews.
The Big Bed Company was set up in 2003 to provide a one-stop shop for people looking to get a bigger than normal size bed. We sell beds, mattresses, bed linen, bedding and accessories in larger sizes as standard. We operate over the internet and from our showroom near the M40/M25 interchange. Most of our beds and bedding are made in the UK - so you can receive them quickly, change most details for no extra charge, be sure of the quality, and minimise your environmental impact.
Price and choice are the key words: customers need to be able to pay as little as £300 or find luxury at £3,000- plus. The Big Bed Company's range has been developed over years of research, design and cajoling of suppliers, and now includes 24 different bed sizes, in traditional and contemporary designs, produced in leather, suede, pine, oak and wrought iron. Bed linen is kept in stock and beds are made to order within four to six weeks. Although there is demand for the bottom-of-the-range basics, one of the most popular so far has been the Caesar bed, which measures 8ft by 7ft 3in.
HOUSE AND GARDEN MAGAZINE
The Big Bed Company produce a wide range of not just large, but larger beds. From extra long single beds, perfect for fast growing teenagers to super size 8' x 7'3" beds large enough to hold the whole family. In addition to the beds, The Big Bed Company stocks mattresses, pillows, duvets and linen to fit all sizes.
Sales of large beds account for about a third of the market. As a nation we are getting bigger, taller and fatter, and squeezing into small beds can cause a bad back and a bad night's sleep. Following research, The Sleep Council recommends that a bed should be 6-8in longer than the sleeper. At The Big Bed Company (01753 889907, www.thebigbedcompany.com) you can try the beds for size. They start from 3ft x 6ft 6in for singles and go up to a whopping 8ft x 7ft 3in for the Caesar bed. As well as conventional divans, the company has a good selection of designs, iron and wooden bedsteads and upholstered contemporary frames, available in various fabrics. It also stocks oversize bed linen and accessories.
Fit three in the bed and still have room to roll over with a gloriously indulgent bed from The Big Bed Company. Standard size is 7' x 7", but it has been known to extend that to 9' both ways. And with evidence suggesting bedsharing is a common cause of restless nights, you and your partner can justify it as a relationship-enhancing investment. It also does accompanying linen.
"I have an emperor-sized duvet and am finding it impossible to get a cover for it that isn't boring white. Ideally I'd like rich, opulent tones. I also need sheets to fit my 2m x 2m bed." The Big Bed Company specialises in bed linen for large beds. Its Ravello 300 thread count range comes in 40 colours including Terracotta and Gold.
Q: We have a kingsize bed and use a super-kingsize duvet. However, one of us (usually me) always ends up hogging the duvet. Does anything bigger exist? A: If only all couples were as pragmatic as you. The Big Bed Company (01753 889907, www.thebigbedcompany.com) has a range of oceanic sized bedding. After kingsize comes Eastern King, then Emperor and, finally, the whopping 'Caesar'.

LEEDS UNIVERSITY REVIEW
The UK's first store that sells larger beds and bed linen for today's growing population. "People are getting bigger, but beds have stayed the same size - beds are supposed to be eight inches longer than the sleeper, so the average UK bed length of six foot three inches leaves many with backache."
THE ART OF CITY LIVING
The Big Bed Company think that size does matter - whether you're looking for more legroom for yourself or a fast growing teenager, The Big Bed Company has the answer. Their range of extra long and extra wide single and double beds goes up to 7'3" long and 8' wide in their standard sizes, though beds have been customised as long and as wide as 9'.

Well - what amazing service! Your van arrived, as promised, at precisely 9.00am this morning, and two irrepressibly cheerful and helpful gentleman installed the two beds upstairs, as well as mattresses, and relocated an old king-size mattress to another bedroom, all with bustling enthusiasm and big smiles. They were gone by 9.07am, and took every scrap of wrapping with them. They even took off their shoes at the front door when they were carrying the beds in. True old-fashioned courtesy. Lovely people. Many thanks for treating us like valued customers.

A big thank you my order for sheets and mattress protector, which arrived last night. This morning I have put them on the bed and am so pleased with them. The fit is generous and excellent quality, the cotton soft and luxurious. They are simply the best I have ever purchased and will certainly be using you again. A very big thank you.
Jackie G., Buckinghamshire
You'll be pleased to know that a year on in the bed itself continues to be the greatest possible pleasure to sleep in - almost too good as it appears that whenever we go away we to get an inferior experience - even in good hotels !
James C., Lancashire
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for your fast, efficient and really good service, I have been struggling to find sheets for our rather large bed, bought in Chile (we now live in Amsterdam) and you delivered exactly what we needed and very quickly!
Jenny H., Amsterdam
We just had to write to say thankyou. Our new bed is unbelievable. We already had a really comfy bed but wanted something bigger for lazy mornings with the kids and a better sleep. Our emperor is our new best friend. We love it! The service you gave from first coming into the shop to placing the order was super and I will be recommending you to anyone I know! Thankyou thankyou

Headboard received and looks great. Thanks for your efforts in keeping us informed over the last couple of months, I would not hesitate to recommend you.
I just wanted to send a note to tell you that I am very pleased with your service and with the quality of the products. The mattress is the perfect size for my bed-frame and it is extremely comfortable. It was a bit difficult to take it to the bedroom, but your delivery men did very kindly. I also appreciate having received the notifications about the delivery time, that helped us to plan for receiving it. I will be looking forward to purchase from you again in the future.
Magda H., Newcastle

I just wanted to say that the saleswoman who assisted us on Saturday was very friendly, knowledgeable and didn't pressure us in to buying the most expensive bed possible. This was very much appreciated. Thanks.
Nick H., Buckinghamshire
Just to let you know the six made to measure sheets arrived at my work address this afternoon. Brilliant service - I wasn't expecting them to arrive so quickly. Many thanks.

We had a delivery this morning of our new bed and linen. Just a quick note could you please pass on our thanks to the two delivery chaps who set up the bed for us, they were wonderful and very considerate of our home.
Roland R., Kent
Thank you for your friendly service and everything you have done for us
Susan R., Scotland
I would like to say thank you for making the bedding for my sons new bed. Everything fits fine and looks great. I was also very happy with the fabric quality, which can be difficult when ordering something you can't see over the phone. Everything was delivered earlier than I expected as well. Thank you for such good service.
Trudy F., Essex
Hi - We would like to say how thrilled we are with our plank bed. Despite our worries your excellent men took it up stairs without even thinking that it would not. It is amazingly robust and beautifully made, we also like the smell of the stuff used to finish it. But of course the most important thing is that it is very comfortable. Many thanks the bed is a pleasure to own.
Yvonne C., Surrey
I wanted to say a very big thank you to you and your team for pulling out all the stops to make the mattress protector for me. It was delivered successfully to my daughter yesterday and is currently on a plane to St Lucia :-). Thank you for such excellent service - I will definitely be back and will recommend you to others!
Yvonne R., St Albans
Just a quick note to say that is the best Christmas present ever! It was supposed to be a birthday present last May, but because of my indecision it’s taken until now. However, it was definitely worth the procrastination- it is stunning and I am delighted and wouldn’t change a thing.
Linda K, Sussex
So the bed arrived and has been installed for a couple of days now and I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love it! It was such a pleasure ordering through you and the bed is stunning, and the best part is that we were able to design a unique custom made bed, at a reasonable price, that we love. Thank you again!
Nicole D., France
We bought a sophie bed with a premier mattress from you about a year ago and just wanted to say how happy we are with the bed. It's the most comfortable bed/mattress we have ever had, and consistently the best nights sleep we have had. Along with the service that we received from you and your delivery drivers it was a great experience dealing with you . Thank you very much.
Malcolm W., Reading
I would just like to say thank you for our lovely new bed, your customer service and value for money. We purchased your wooden plank bed which we needed reinforced as it was to hold a heavy latex mattress. The bed was the easiest bed we've ever assembled thanks to it's little bolts and is beautiful and sturdy. It was so well packaged that it took longer to unwrap than put together! Your helpful advice and sales support were much appreciated and delivery was well informed and punctual. We have no hesitation in recommending your company to all and sundry and shall definitely purchase another of the same in the future
