Mattresses & Bedstead Bases
The images shown here of bed ref: 9365C36 depict this bedstead complete with a combined mattress and bedstead base height of 25cm/10”. Due to the relatively high side rail height, an Iron Four-poster bedstead such as this should ideally have a combined base and mattress height that does not exceed 32.5cm/13”. One should be mindful that adjusting a bedstead’s overall mattress height either too high or too low can impact the aesthetic integrity of the overall scheme one is seeking to create. As such, we recommend speaking to one of our highly experienced team members for further advice on our own Suffolk Journeyman range of mattresses and bedstead bases.
