Richmond Euro Top Waterbed Insert Replacement Mattress That Fits Wooden Frame


Richmond Euro Top Waterbed Insert

Our special-sized Richmond Euro Top Waterbed Insert from Therapedic® is part of our performance line called the Backsense™ series. It is an ordinary traditional mattress made with coil springs specifically to slip down inside your wooden waterbed frame. This supportive comfort system is made thicker, so getting in and out will no longer be a problem. (Boxspring NOT INCLUDED and more importantly is NOT Necessary)


In addition, making your bed when you wake up will be far easier than before since you won’t have to lift the heavy water mattress. The slightly undersized dimensions make getting your hands and bedding alongside the mattress easy. Size may vary up to 1 inch.


Purchasing a replacement insert mattress prevents you from having to buy a new bed, bedroom furniture, and of course a mattress set. Your only investment is the cost of a mattress itself making it a very smart choice that not only saves you money, but also hours of time and hard work from the process of completely changing everything back to a regular bed.


Transitioning from a water mattress to a traditional mattress with coil springs can be tough. The cushioning of the euro top makes that change easier while also providing firm support rarely found in waterbeds. It also provides a comfortable night of sleep while allowing you to keep the current waterbed frame and furniture you own.


Featured Mattress Firmness: Richmond Euro Top Waterbed Insert


Firmness Rating: 6-7

Our entry level waterbed insert mattress with basic firm support with a cushiony one sided pillow top makes the transition from water to a regular mattress much easier on a budget.


Understanding Mattress Firmness: A Quick Guide Of Our Firmness Rating Overview (1-10 Scale):


Firmness For Water Mattresses:

1: Ultra-Soft, our softest option. Imagine lying on a gently bobbing boat; this is our softest, cloud-like water mattress.
4: Firm, the firmest among water mattresses. This is where water meets firmness – still with that gentle water feel, but with maximum support.


Firmness For Coil Spring Mattresses:

5: Firm, marking the entry point into our coil spring range. It’s firmer than our firmest water mattress but maintains a gentle feel, providing a nice balance for those transitioning from water to coil spring mattresses.
10: Ultra Firm, the hardest mattress we offer. The epitome of firmness; think of lying on a firm, supportive surface that holds you perfectly without any sink.

Traditional mattresses like these do not need or require a box spring. This stand-alone mattress rests correctly and properly by itself on the decking /plywood of your frame. It fits and fills the frame so that the mattress is elevated at a height that will not interfere with the visibility of the headboard while leaving ample space for making your bed and getting your hands between the mattress and frame. We recommend keeping your safety liner. If you no longer have one STL Beds Stocks them at additional cost.
