You’ve heard about them, but have you seen one? And yes, they do exist and can be found at Calgary’s custom mattress designer and builder, Sleep Boutique.
For the past decade, we’ve seen a growing trend of customers wanting even larger oversized mattresses. The traditional King-sized bed isn’t enough for them:
- Some people like and want more space while sleeping with their significant other — the sound effects from the other side of the bed may be too loud, or too much motion.
- The Family Bed. Many families, especially younger ones, want the whole family to sleep together.
- Big Dog people. If you have no space in your bed because of Mans’ Best Friend, it could be time for the Alaskan.
- Other folks have the room and want the biggest, baddest bed on the block.
How big is big?
An Alaskan King Bed, like its namesake, is enormous at 9 feet x 9 feet. We also can make an Alberta King Bed which measures 8 feet x 8 feet. The next biggest size is theWyoming King Bed which comes in at a mere 7 feet x 7 feet. Then there are the more traditionally sized California King and Eastern King beds, which seem, well, kind of small.
How can you fit it in my house?
Many homes can accommodate an Alaskan. Obviously, you need a large enough bedroom, but you also need the space to get a mattress this size into your house. At Sleep Boutique, we have created a modular mattress design we can get it into any house.
A modular mattress will have multiple components inside one cover. A good example of this is Sleep Boutique’s Orchid Mattress. As for a foundation/boxspring, most custom mattress builders should have some options for you, or you can always have a custom Platform Bed Frame made.
Where can I find oversized bed linens?
The other considerations are sheets and duvets, which you won’t be able to find at big box stores either. You might be able to find retailers online, but sometimes it isn’t easy. We can now supply fitted, flat, duvets, and protectors for all our oversized mattresses. This includes sheet sets for Alaskan, Wyoming and all our Family beds. Please contact us for pricing.
Where can I get one?
Big box mattress stores aren’t going to be offering these. Our customers come to us because they don’t want to deal with a traditional retailer — they want to know what’s going into their mattresses and they want to pick and choose from different options.
You can find custom mattress builders locally or online. You can also try some Foam Shops or upholstery shops as well.
As for costs on mattresses of these sizes, it is obviously going to vary depending on manufacturer, size, materials and components used in the mattress along with the outside covers. The great thing with custom mattress builders is you can get a higher quality (better ingredients) mattress for less than you think. Custom doesn’t necessarily mean more expensive.
Sleep Boutiques Oversized Mattresses
Oversized mattresses can be built with a variety of materials. Depending on the size and support you need, we create mattresses from high quality materials and proven designs.
Foam and Latex Mattresses have no inner coils or springs and are supported by various layers and densities of High Resilency Foam. They allow for different firmness for each sleep and adjustable warmth preferences. They are made using Talalay Latex, Memory-foam or all-organic natural Dunlop latex. We usually recommend these non-spring designs for the largest sized mattresses, as they are much easier to ship and move into any home. These mattress can be flipped and refurbished for a lifetime of use.
Unlike traditional mattress retailers, Sleep Boutique doesn’t have an inventory of pre-built mattresses in its store. Once the right kind of mattress and ingredients are decided upon, the mattress is then built on site in the Sleep Boutique workshop.
