With two single bed bases joined together by linking bars at both ends, and then two single mattresses laid on top which easily zip together, a Zip and Link bed offers you a versatile and clever choice. Traditionally offering many Bed and Breakfasts, hotels and Self Catering Holiday Lets the freedom to readily transform their twin room into a double room, the Zip and Link design is now making itself popular in the domestic market.
If you have low ceilings or a narrow and awkward stairway making access challenging, then choosing a Zip and Link bed is an excellent choice and a great way to provide the king size bed that was previously impossible to fit into your bedroom. And with the added bonus of being extremely simple to build once in the room, why not give it a try!
Our Zip and Link beds and mattresses can be supplied as standard length, 6ft3'' (190cm), so there will be no problem with using your existing bedding. Alternatively, we can provide them at the longer length of 6ft 6” (200cm). Don’t forget that if you would prefer a more bespoke size or would like to choose your own fabric for your base and headboards, we will do our best to help create the perfect Zip and Link bed for you.
When deciding to purchase a new headboard to match your Zip and Link bed, we recommend buying two single sized headboards rather than the double size. Whether you choose to keep the beds as a double or separate them, this will help make it easier to both separate the beds and at the same time maintain their smart and stylish look, especially when buying matching fabrics with headboards that come in a variety of designs.
