We just bought a 2nd hand Noresund Queen bed frame to go with our Innerspring Classic Queen Mattress.
Unfortunately, after assembling everything, the mattress doesn't seem to fit the bed frame!! The mattress dimensions are 60 x 79.25, it fits width-wise but the problem is the length. We're not sure if the bed frame is the suspect or the mattress. Did anyone else come across this problem?
We tried fitting the mattress from the top, from the side, it ends up getting folded (raised) at one end or the other and no matter how much strength it keeps popping up. We are at our wits end.
My fiancee loves the frame but we can't seem to fit it with the mattress. Any suggestions are more than welcome!
I spoke to the person from whom we got this. He said he has been using a futon queen sized mattress for it, no wonder he was able to fit it in, but also said this is what he got from Ikea. I am guessing this might end up being a Full size Ikea bed frame, but the width doesn't make sense.
I guess we will end up disposing this off.
Thanks a lot for your help, hexkeyfan, really appreciate it.
No problem. You know this might be one of the beds were the headboard and sides are sold seperately. If thats the case the width would be right (Queen Headboard/footboard) but the length would be short. (full sized sides)
I so hope you haven't gotten rid of your frame yet...I think we may have mutually beneficial fiascos I also bought the discontinued black Noresund bed frame second hand (the exact one in the picture), but mine was a full. I bought the used mattress as well (which I know is kind of gross, but I needed it and was short on funds). When I got the bed home and put it together I realized the mattress fit perfectly width-wise, but left about a five inch gap in the length. It took me a while to figure out I had a bed that was a "full-extra long" (width of a full, length of queen). This is a legitimate size, but mattresses and sheets are hard to come by because they have to be custom ordered. Ikea does not carry full-extra long beds, so I'm thinking the original purchaser probably bought it in the "as is" section. Because the slats of the side rails fit regardless of the size of the bed, some crafty Ikea employee was able to piece together left over side rails from a queen bed with the head and base of a full, the fact that the two together make a size that actually exists was probably just a fluke. I've never posted on a thread before, so I don't know how one sets up private contact, but YOU HAVE MY FULL RAILS AND I HAVE YOUR QUEEN!!!!
