European bed sizes are getting more and more popular here in the UK, Bedlinen Direct stock an excellent range of 160cm x 200cm bedding.
Continental mattress sizes up to a few years ago could be found in a handful of department stores but the introduction of Euro 160cm x 200cm king size beds nearly 10 years ago started a modern day trend to standardise the European bedding market.
Since beds and bedding was introduced in the UK we had 4 main mattress sizes, single, double, king and the largest size we had was the super king size.
Continental and UK bedding sizes
Some of the continental sizes fit right in between these UK beds and finding good quality sheets and duvet covers to meet this demand was going to be hard.
Most manufacturers and importers have to meet minimum standards before they can get a good price so if they order less than a few thousand of any one size in a calendar year then they are not going to get a competitive price and therefore go out of business.
So you can see why the 160cm x 200cm bedding is so hard to get hold of, this has thankfully changed and you no longer have to pay a small fortune to get sheets made to order. Although it is still possible to buy these luxury cotton fitted sheets through UK companies such as Peter Reed.
Not only can you get luxury sheets but you can also buy 160cm x 200cm mattress protectors from our Coolmax range and a fantastic pure goose down 160cm x 200cm mattress topper.
