Waterbed Rail Pads

Waterbed rail pads are a type of accessory that can be added to a waterbed frame to provide a more comfortable and finished look. They are typically made of a soft, padded material that covers the top edge of the frame, and they can help to prevent injuries from bumping into the frame or from falling out of the waterbed. They are also a relatively inexpensive investment, and they can add years of life to your waterbed mattress.

Benefits of Waterbed Rail Pads

  • Comfort: Padded rail pads provide a soft, cushioned surface to sit on. This can be especially helpful if you have a hard waterbed frame.
  • Style: Waterbed rail pads can add a touch of style to your waterbed. They come in a variety of colors and styles to match your decor.
  • Protection: Padded rail pads can help to protect your waterbed mattress from damage. They can prevent the mattress from being scratched or gouged by the frame.
  • Prevents injuries: If you have a young child or pet, the padded material can help to prevent them from bumping into the frame and getting hurt.
  • Ease of installation: Waterbed rail pads are easy to install. They simply slip over the edge of your waterbed frame. No tools are required.

Types of Waterbed Rail Pads

There are a few different types of waterbed rail pads available, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs. Some of the most common types include:
Standard padded rail pads: These are the most basic type of waterbed rail pad. They are typically made of a soft, padded material, and they are available in a variety of colors and sizes.
Jumbo padded rail pads: These are larger than standard padded rail pads, and they typically have a thicker layer of padding. They can provide a more comfortable and cushioned sitting or leaning surface, and they can also help to reduce the noise level when you get in or out of bed.

How to Install Waterbed Rail Pads

Installing waterbed rail pads is a relatively simple process. Most pads come with instructions, but the basic steps are as follows:
1. Remove the old rail pads from your bed frame, if necessary.
2. Clean the frame with a mild soap and water solution.
3. Align the new rail pads with the frame and secure them in place with screws or adhesive.

Tips for Choosing Waterbed Rail Pads

When choosing waterbed rail pads, there are a few things you should keep in mind:
Size: Make sure to choose the right size rail pads for your waterbed frame. The pads should extend at least 1 inch beyond the edge of the frame to provide a comfortable sitting or leaning surface.
Color: Choose a color that matches your bed frame or decor.
Personal preferences: Consider the level of comfort and protection that you are looking for when choosing rail pads.


Waterbed rail pads are a simple and effective way to improve the comfort, appearance, and safety of your waterbed. They are also a practical way to protect your waterbed mattress from damage. If you are looking for a way to make your bed more enjoyable, waterbed rail pads are a great option.
