Thames Bed Base - Standard

The Bed Shop


PLEASE NOTE: We do not carry stock of all bases in all colours and sizes at all times. If the bed base you order is not in stock please note these will now not be available until EARLY FEBRUARY 2024. 

Our range of classic, platform-style bed bases are suitable for all types of mattresses and come in a range of stylish fabrics - no valance needed!

Made to order from Single to California King sizing, these bases offer all the support your mattress needs, with a solid internal structure to give an even weight distribution across the length and width of the bed. All bases are also supplied with standard headboard fittings and bolts.

Please note, all bases made in King, Super King and California King size are made in two pieces with brackets to join them at the center, due to their large overall size. If access to your room is limited, we can also have Queen bases made in this same "split" style - simply select "Queen Split" as your preferred option when ordering.

We hold stock of our most popular sizes and fabric choices, but do not have all options readily available, these are custom made to order. Please allow approximately 1 to 2 weeks for manufacturing if we don't have your preferred size and fabric choice in stock.
