Ordering your Dog or Cat Bed

There are five simple steps to order your bespoke dog or cat bed...

1. Choose which type of bed suits your home.

My painted beds come in a range of colours and I have a selection of fabrics to choose from for your mattress cover.

Prefer the look of a four poster? You choose the fabrics of the mattress, frill and frill lining. (shown is faux red mattress cover, with red lining and red floral frill.

I have three standard bed styles - painted MDF, solid pine standard and solid pine four poster Plus the sofa collection : Padded arms, Knowles sofas or Chaises Lounges. In addition to these I have ready-made specials in stock. The up cycled ones are usually one-off items and are ready to dispatch immediately.


The price of the bed includes paint or varnish, the 2" memory foam mattress first covered in water resistant fabric and then with washable cover of your choice and feet.  The price of the frill on the four posters is included.

2. Measure your pet - what size bed will be most comfortable?

Made for sharing too.

Below is a handy 'at a glance' size-guide, but the breed suggestions below can only give you a rough guide. There can be a big difference within each breed, so I always recommend that you measure your pets - when they are stretched out and relaxed.

  • Toy dog/cat: 45cm x 35cm x 30cm high
  • Small: 60cm x 50cm x 30cm high (up to small Cocker Spaniel)

IMPORTANT: Because of the bespoke nature of the business and the high cost of delivery,  I cannot not accept returns due to incorrect sizing/ordering.  Therefore I strongly recommend that you do measure your dog and order wisely. If you need any advice or a different size please don't hesitate to contact me.

Also please bear in mind that the beds are NOT CHEWPROOF. Please beware if your dog is young or inclined to nibble furniture.

3. Choose your colour scheme - fabrics and paint.

For options of paint colours and fabrics etc. see the table on our Prices page, or go to Beds, Fabrics & Accessories page.


The price of the zip-off, washable mattress cover is based on the size and type of fabric used.  Please bear in mind that if you choose a delicate wash fabric to use a gentle wash and do not tumble dry.

You can provide your own fabric if you wish, but please discuss the suitability of the fabric with me first. Some fabrics may not be suitable if they are too thick or too thin to be practical.

4. Select from our range of accessories and embellishments.
