As anyone who has upgraded from their first twin-sizebed to a queen or king-size bed knows, the experience of relaxing with the extra room that larger sizes provide can be a revelation. Some people don’t even realize what they’re missing out on by sleeping on their smaller mattresses. But in situations where space isn’t the factor keeping someone from getting a larger mattress, money often is. To get the comfort of a king-size mattress without the king-size cost, Foam Factory, Inc. offers foam bed bridges for seamlessly joining two twin mattresses together to give you the comfort you want at a price you can afford.
Constructed of compressible but supportive open-cell poly foam, Foam Factory bed bridges are placed in the gap between two side-by-side mattresses to create a seamless, smooth surface that doubles a mattress’ width. With a length of 78 inches, a bed bridge can be used on twin-size mattresses by trimming off the 3 excess inches, while filling all but 2 inches of the gap in XL-length beds. The part of the wedge that extends into the gap between the two mattresses is 3-1/4 inches long and tapers down to its end, ensuring that the gap is filled with enough material to prevent a dip, but not so much that a noticeable protrusion forms in its place. And to ensure smooth transition from mattress surface to bed bridge surface, the product is 10 inches in width, top to bottom. This way, if you stretch out across the bridge, it won’t feel like there is a foam plug filling the gap. You can even combine two different bed sizes together to make a custom-sized mattress.
With the cost of large mattresses in the hundreds or even thousands of dollars, the cost of two twin mattresses and Foam Factory’s bed bridge can equate to huge savings. In almost all cases, purchasing two twin mattresses from a company, plus a Foam Factory bed bridge, will be cheaper than purchasing a company’s king-size mattress. Being able to comfortably stretch out can make the difference between a full night’s sleep and a restless night spent tossing and turning. The comfort and cost benefits a bed bridge can provide to an individual, while substantial, are increased 10 fold for people who share beds with a partner.
One of the biggest issues for couples with a shared sleeping arrangement is different opinions as to what makes a comfortable mattress. There is no right or wrong answer, since you can’t convince your body that something is comfortable when it simply isn’t. One person may sleep like a rock on a soft, cloud-like mattress while their partner may get heavenly sleep on a mattress as hard as stone. This can lead to compromises in comfort as both sides attempt to give a little to please their partner. This is a noble sacrifice, but in reality, a concession for both sides means neither person is having their comfort and support needs met, which can result in a lack of rest that is not only bad for the relationship, but also detrimental to overall health. Couples who have been unable to find a balance that satisfies both people often switch to a two-bed system that, while providing the right surface for good sleep, eliminates the closeness to their partner they may desire. A foam bed bridge however, can solve all of these issues.
Two completely different mattress types can be placed together and by using the bed bridge to join them, a single bed is created that gives each person the comfort they need without separating them. Many pricey dual-comfort beds have been created, particularly using air mattress technology, that attempt to combine bed types into a single mattress. However, these mattresses are priced in the thousands of dollars and feature a middle section that features the same lack of transition between the two sections as any other dual-bed setup. For hundreds of dollars less, two individual mattresses can be purchased with a bed bridge foam wedge and combined into one for economical, custom comfort.
Foam Factory bed bridges can be used on any mattress type, not just beds also made of foam. For innerspring mattresses, air mattresses and water beds, bridges can be placed directly on the mattress, and then covered with your sheets, pads and toppers. Or, they can be placed on top of an individual mattress’ bedding and covered only with the top sheet that joins the two together. With these materials, use can be dictated by what the individual finds most comfortable. With foam beds however, Foam Factory suggests having a sheeting or mattress pad layer between the foam cores of the mattresses and the bed bridge. This is to increase longevity of both the mattress and the bridge, as the friction from use of the foam bridge against a foam mattress or bed wedge can cause them to rub together and wear down prematurely. Keeping a layer between uncovered foam materials is the best way to prevent foam-on-foam friction and get the most life out of your products. Mattresses are often able to be kept together just by using snug, fitted sheets that encase both mattresses at once. For people who still feel their two beds aren’t together tightly enough, a ratcheted strap wrapped around the outside of your bed’s perimeter can keep the two beds snugly in place.* A strap should only be tight enough to keep the two beds from moving apart without visibly squeezing their forms.
Whether you’ve decided it’s time you get to stretch out and relax in bed or if you and your partner have tried everything to give you both the sleep you need, a bed bridge from Foam Factory can be the affordable, common-sense solution to your issue.
*Note: It is important to not over-tighten straps as this can damage a mattress of any material. This is especially important with foam mattresses, as over-tightening can compact the corners of mattresses, affecting the fit of sheets, or even cut into a foam core if over-tightened. Foam Factory suggests using straps no smaller than 3 inches in width to evenly spread pressure along the edge of the foam.

Would there happen to be something like this for a couch? My couch cushions aren’t detachable so something like this to go in the sagging gap would be perfect.
You could potentially use the foam bed bridge, then cut it down to size with a sharp carving knife or electric knife. If you have any other questions just let us know.
I am getting a king sized bed and i currently have a twin bed memory and twin memory foam topper. Instead of buying a king sized foam topper i was looking to buy another twin and put the two together, the only problem is that the crack between them would widen if you slept in the middle. Could i use these on memory foam toppers to stop this problem?
Yes, this can be used for memory foam toppers and beds as well. Please keep in mind the foam bed bridge is conventional foam, and not memory foam. So the bridge won’t give you that consistent memory foam feel where the foam bed bridge is installed.
Would this work for putting two full-size / double beds together?
Yes, because the length of a full is about the same as a twin, about 76″ long.
how do I buy one from you
Foam Bed Bridge
because of the style of the head and foot boards of the twin beds, there is a 4 ” gap when i put the beds together. Is there a bridge that wide.
With a gap that large, we would suggest a block of foam to be placed inside to eliminate the gap. You can order a custom cut cushion on our website.
For that application you could purchase a piece of foam about 4 to 5″ thick that could fill the gap. Unfortunately we do not have a foam bed bridge that size. You can price out and order custom cut foam here.
Do you have a bed bridge to go in between two queen mattresses?
Our foam bed bridge can be used for 2 queen mattresses as well.
How can I buy one and howmuch is it?
Link is here: foam bed bridges
Is it possible to combine a queen and a full?
You could do what with a queen and a full long. A full size is shorter than a queen.
Can u use for two king beds? I want a family size bed but am afraid of the logistics of getting that in my master. I feel two king beds may be a better choice but obviously nobody wants the gap.
You may need more than one Foam Bed Bridge to achieve the full length you need, but it will work for any size beds!
I have 2 twin adjustable beds, would this work with these? Both heads of beds raise separately
The Foam Bed Bridge should work for your application, but may need to be adjusted on occasion from the movement of the head of the mattresses.
Hi, I saw you answered someone’s question previously about putting two king beds together. Can you give a little more detail on what exactly this would entail? Thanks.
Please Contact Us for further information regarding your inquiry.
If I put two twin beds together what size bed frame will I need and where can I get one? The twins are 38”x 76”
Two twin beds together would make a piece that measures approximately 76″ x 76″, so you would need to find a bed frame that would fit those measurements.
