I was quite confused the other day when a young teenage customer stepped into my mattress store and asked for a 3 4 bed mattress. Upon more discussion, I discovered that he was shopping based on the shopping list his mother had written for him. Apparently, what he was referring to was a 3/4 bed mattress.
3 4 bed mattress is the mattress meant for Single Bed with the Size 3&340 X 6&346. This form of bed uses a mattress size 3″0 X 6″6with the Height: 3’4” and the Width: 7’2” plus Depth: 3’6″. 3 4 bed mattress are meant for beds designed to accommodate active kids and limited room space. A sturdy steel tube profile ensures years of use. There are many different sizes that have been made throughout the years. A very common bed was referred to as the “3/4 bed”. Many customers believe that their “3/4 bed” is a standard size. 3/4 bed is 48 inches wide by 75 inches in length. However, less then 20% sold in the market these days are actually 3/4 size mattresses.
From what I noticed, this young customer is buying the bed for his younger sibling. so I casually enquired to see if the purchase was for his younger sibling. He was surprised but was glad that I understood his needs. After assuring him that I will do my best to recommend him a good 3 4 bed mattress, he finally felt comfortable and confident to discuss with me.
So I took him around the store to help him check through the selections of 3 4 bed mattress which we have. I believed it was important for a customer to know the choices he has and how they cater to his needs before making a purchase. Thus we went through many choices.
As he was also looking for a bed alongside with the purchase, I showed him the sturdy yet elegant Carved Oak Single Bed Mattress. This Size 3&340 X 6&346 Carved oak single bed is equipped with carved lozenges, turned balusters and square peg joined legs and bun. These are vital features to look for when looking for a stable and long lasting bed. Carved Oak Single Bed uses a mattress size 3″0 X 6″6.
To be exact, the Mattress Size 3″0 X 6″6 must be installed on the bed with the Height: 3’4”, the Width: 7’2” and the Depth: 3’6 to fit properly in the bed. This is not a problem at all as this is a very popular specification in the mattress productline. I slowly explained everything I could to him because I know this is the perfect bed for his active young sibling.
I know his mom sent him here as a form of learning experience, so I did my best to help him learn when he shops. I gave him a catalogue of the product discussed and suggested that he explained it to his mom or to bring her for the next visit to my store. I bid him farewell and I’m sure he will be back again with his mum to browse for more items such as Area Rugs, Bed Frame or even Bean Bag Chairs. Helping that young customer learn about 3 4 bed mattress was certainly a fun and happy experience.
