Please make your template to the full width of the bed base. During production we will allow for the thickness of the mattress cover, fillings and enough room for you to fit your fingers and bed sheets. 


Step 1:
Remove your old mattress/ cushions
Step 2:
Cover entire base with paper (join together so template is in one piece*)
Step 3:
Crease around edges with fingers - this is imperative to ensure the perfect fit!

Step 4:

Draw around the crease with a marker pen

Step 5:
Cut-out and lay back on bed to ensure a good fit (make any adjustments by simply adding or removing paper to the edges)

Step 6:
Mark your name. number, location of split if required*, and order details on the top surface


 HINT: To stop the paper moving, cut holes in the paper and tape over them to hold it to the boards underneath.
*If the mattress is to be split, accurately mark the location of the split onto the template, do not cut!
step7  If you have sloping sides against the hull use a ruler (or the back page of our leaflet!) to measure vertically from the edge of the bed base to the height (depth) of your new mattress. Use a tape measure to find the distance out to the hull at this height. Indicate this on the template as shown and repeat at each corner and 2 or 3 times along each angled side.
