North American Queen mattress, can I buy north american queen sized bed in Singapore?

Postby crambola » Thu, 22 Mar 2018 5:02 pm

Hi everyone,

My husband and I will be moving to Singapore in late February. We are bringing our Queen (North American size) mattress with us to Singapore, and are wondering if it will be a challenge to find a bed that will fit the mattress. Also, is custom furniture very expensive, or are there reasonable options as well? Our budget for a bed is around $1200 max.

Thanks so much for your help and input!

Singapore bed sizes are their own standard. I don't remember the specificd but I think eds here are shorter. Why not bring a bed as well linen?

If you are bringing a mattress you had better bring a bed and sheets. Singapore beds are the same width but 6 inches shorter. You will not find a North American bed for sale in Singapore.

Custom furniture will be quite expensive if manufactured in Singapore. If manufactured elsewhere, it can be cheaper... then you have issues of quality and getting what you want delivered to spec.
