Size Charts for Bedding & Towels

Posted by Terri Duke on

Bed sizes and bedding specifications have become more complex as the pursuit of a comfortable sleep environment increases. Hopefully we spend at least one third of our lives in our most private domain and our aim at Fino Lino is to help you have a more restful sleep. We are passionate about creating the most comfortable bed and take great pride in sharing our product knowledge, design skills and bedding specifications.

Mattress depths usually range between 8" and 20".  It is a matter of opinion whether the comfort factor  increases as the mattress becomes larger. Design aesthetic may also influence the personal determination of comfort. Feeling comfortable and enjoying how the bed looks are all important in the decision making process.

The Italianate bed style is becoming more popular with a low profile platform or frame and an 8" mattress, whereas traditionalists may prefer a frame with a high profile mattress depth of 12" to 18". We are even now working with mattresses of a 20" depth. When a mattress is at the opposite extremes of 8" or 20" the mattress protector, fitted sheets and duvets often have to be customised to ensure a desirable fit.

The average specification of depth or overhang in luxury bedding  is 15" to 17",  although super-sizes are available. Fino Lino is able to customise the size and we are adept at working with unusual specifications. Many of our fabrics are 118"- 120" wide allowing the construction of luxury bedding without seams,  increasing comfort and longevity.

Before choosing bedding for your home take a moment to record your specifications; the width, length and depth of your mattress is essential.  Also the measurement from the top of the box spring to the floor will be helpful if you wish to use a bed skirt.
This will allow the process to be more pleasurable and certainly will save time!!!

***  Before dressing your bed with your new bedding ensure that they fit and that the package contains what you expected.  Bedding that has been laundered is non-returnable.
