It is indeed unusual to have a round mattress, but are you wondering how to make a round mattress?
A round mattress is strange, but having unique pieces in your home can be charming and entertaining, right?
Paring and styling the round bed with your preferences makes a more aesthetic and relaxed vibe look to your bedroom.
It is much cheaper to make it yourself than to buy it in a furniture store because the mattress is so costly and the shipping fee is so high.
All you need to do is grab the tools and materials and get started.
With durable and high-density foam pads, you can create a luxurious Vegas-inspired round bed.
Comfortable memory and egg crate foam pads are handy.
Also, you can make a round mattress and make it as a small business, isn’t it incredible?
So, without a hustle, let’s begin!
7 Easy Steps To Make A Round Mattress And Tips
Here we share with you these easy steps on how to make a round mattress for your cozy living.
These steps may be different from a typical mattress.
If you follow this guide, I’m sure you will be fine.
Step #1. Gather all the things you will need
The first thing you have to do is grab all the tools and materials you need for this construction.
- Measuring tape
- Newspaper or old used papers
- A tiny rope or string
- Pencil or marker
- Fabric scissors
- Two memory foam pads, full size
- Two full-size durable foam pads (if for children or pet’s bedding, you can use a smaller one)
- Carving knife or any knife with a sharp edge
- Two egg crate foam pads, full size
- Round sheets with desired color and design
For safety, you can use protective equipment like working gloves, face masks, and safety goggles when working; we do not want anything wrong to happen.
So, be careful.
Step #2. Make a big circle layout
Get the newspaper, or some used old papers and tape it together, making 80 inches square.
This step will be the layout for cutting your available foam pads.
Tie the tiny rope or string at the end of the pencil or marker.
Make sure that your string is 40 inches long to take all the spaces of the 80 inches diameter circle.
After that, put the end of the string at the center of the square. It will guide you to make a perfectly round shape.
Then finally, cut the circle shape with scissors.
Step #3. Finding the right circle sized for your bedroom
Once you are done cutting out the circle layout, place it on your bedroom floor and see if it is enough and perfectly fits your bedroom.
If not, you can downsize the circle layout and make it 70 or 60 depending on your desired look or make it way bigger than 80 inches.
It depends on you.
Step #4. Placing the foam
Glue the two full-size durable foam pads sized by the side, making a 108×80 inch rectangle, and to make sure that it will hold up the shape together,
Pull the pads side by side and fill the inner sides with contact cement and set them aside, and allow them to dry.
After that, press the two foam pads to make them stick together.
Step #5. Cut the foam pads into a circle
Trace the circle layout at the top of your foam pads using a pencil or marker and improvise a compass.
Then, get your sharp carving knife or any knife sharp enough to cut the foam.
Slowly cut out the traced circle to have it a clean and perfectly shaped circle.
Repeat this process for cutting the egg crate foam pads and the memory foam pads into 80 inches circle bed.
Step #6. Making the mattress
Layer all the foam pads together on your customized round bed platform.
The first layer, which is in the bottom, is the durable and high-density foam pad, next is the egg crate foam pad and at the top is the comfortable memory foam pad.
A little science here, those three foam pads will be sticking together without using any adhesive due to fiction.
For easier installation, get some help with anyone to assist you when aligning all of that for the mattress.
Step #7. Sewing the mattress cover
Sew the mattress cover carefully and smoothly, and this will you give you a neat round mattress.
And then cover it with another mattress cover with your desired style and pint on it.
Remember the following:
Alternate the placement of the seams when stacking them out to avoid lining up of seams together.
If you ever have a nice round sheet, you can also use it as a layout for your foam pads.
Not just that, it will make you sure that you have the exact size for your round sheet.
After buying high-density foam pads online or at a home store, lay them flat on the floor and leave them for about one or two days to eliminate their chemical smell
