I'm asking everyone with a CBH bed system this question... Which size did you get?

Hey swilkes,

Welcome to the TMU Forum :) ! Good to have you here and thanks for your question. I couldn't quite follow your post as it appears your initial question got lost in an earlier thread, Factory Direct Mattresses in the Toronto, ON and GTA area, post #108 :

What size mattress did you get? I'm curious what it feels like sleeping on or near the center of CBH beds either alone or with a partner. Was there that weird feeling of more firmness toward the center than the sides, thus making you want to roll away from the center?


There shouldn't be an issue of the bed being too firm in the center; however, this would be a good question for @CBH Wood Furniture to comment on, know they would want to offer answers to your question. BTW, what size mattress are you looking at?

Keep us posted on your research and thanks.

Hi Swilkes,
sorry for the late reply but I had some problems logging in to this site earlier this week.
Your questions is valid. We offer beds with 1 or 2 slat systems and advise that if the bed is used by 1 person the majority of the time then it should have 1 slat system. If mostly used by 2 people then 2 slat systems are better. Let's say you have a queen bed (which normally comes with 2 slat systems although he have also, on request, sent out a queen with only 1 slat system before for an older lady who lives alone) and if you lay down in the middle of the bed, then your body will be utilizing both slat systems which means there is more resistance and therefore it will feel firmer. Some people are sensitive to that, other's are not. Generally this is not a problem since people gravitate to the outside of the bed.

How much does the 4" mattress part weigh on the queen versus the twin xl? I ask because I think the the 4" mattress part would be the hardest to move up the stairs in to my apartment. And the hardest to move into proper position on the bed since I'm single and don't really have any family or friends close by that could help.

Hey swilkes,

Thanks for your question earlier and for keeping us updated on your search :). Thanks also to trusted member CBH Wood Furniture for the information they gave on their slat systems, hope you found their answer helpful in your research.

CBH Wood Furniture lists system specs on their 8" Balancer ~ Das Original bed for the home/Specifications & Designs here on the TMU site, but weigh isn't specifically mentioned so I'll let @CBHWoodFurniture answer on that. However, there are some dimensions listed that may help if you need that info too, thought you may find those useful.

Thanks,
Sensei

Hi Swilkes
The twin mattress pad weighs just under 20kg (44lbs) . And the Queen is around 30kg (66lbs).
Out of all the pieces that we would send, the queen mattress is the heaviest at 30kg. The frame comes in pieces, each light enough to carry by oneself for most people.

Have you ever split the inside/latex of a queen mattress in two like you do with the kings? Just curious if that's a possible option.

Hi swilkes
We have considered that but it is not a good option. The reason being that the mattress pad will be too light and will start moving around. The reason we split the mattress for king is merely that a full king would be too heavy and difficult to handle, especially when somebody takes off the cotton cover for washing. It is very difficult to put a full king mattress back into the cover after. I would assume your motivation behind your question is that the mattress can be flipped opposite sides so that one side will be firm and the other medium-firm. Honestly speaking I find very very few people will sleep on the firm side. The slat system in itself makes the bed feel firm (a comfortable firm not a stiff firm) and the mattress top is then only for comfort and in almost all cases the softer side is preferred.

I wasn't thinking of flipping one up and one down. No, I live alone, I'm a small person, and I have no family or friends in the area. I simply wanted two pieces to make it easier for me to set up or move the bed. I also wanted to be able to occasionally move the half on the right over to the left and vice versa so the two sides would wear evenly since I'm the only one sleeping on it. I hope to start dating again in a few years, thus I'm considering a bed for two people. But there's no guarantee there will ever be two people sleeping on it long-term.

What I hear you saying is that you don't split queens because if split then the two pieces would shift inside the cover and either bunch up in the middle or gap a little in the middle. I'm not too concerned about that when it's just me, but I could see that being a problem if there were ever two of us in the bed. Thanks!
