Do you have a partner to share a bed with you? Do you have pets or kids that sleep with you? Are you an active or a passive sleeper? These are the questions that you must have an answer to while buying a bed and mattress.
Choosing the right bed that perfectly fits your room plays a significant role in the mattress buying process. Some people use the same mattresses when they should really be changing them. Every bed has different dimensions, so it is essential to have a mattress that matches the bed’s length and breadth to have a comfortable sleep.
The following guide will give you detailed specifications of various bed and mattress sizes to help you decide the best suited for you and your space.
A twin-size mattress is typically 38 inches wide and 75 inches in length, perfect for outgrown toddlers, children and single adults. It is the best pick if you live alone and have a compact room.
Twin-size beds are generally used for daybeds, bunk beds, dorm rooms, or guest bedrooms. For budget shoppers, this mattress is a perfect option as it offers the same deluxe feel of larger bedding without costing you an arm or a leg.
Twin XL Size Bed
Slightly larger than a twin-size bed, twin XL size is 38” wide and 80” long. This mattress is perfect for taller adults who don’t have room for bigger beds.
Moreover, you can combine two twin XL size mattresses on a king-size bed. Adjoining two beddings on a single frame is an excellent option for sleepers who want to use an adjustable frame so they can sit back or lie down without disturbing their partner’s sleep.
A full-size mattress is wider than both twin-size and twin XL size mattresses. It is 54 inches in breadth and 75 inches in length and known as ‘standard double.’
For active sleepers who like to crawl or couples with compact bedrooms, a full-size mattress is the best pick. However, it is not recommended for couples with pets or children who share a bed with you.
A queen-size mattress is 80 inches in length and 60 inches in width, making it a perfect pick for single active sleepers, couples, and those who have children or animals sleeping with them. These beds are for large rooms with dimensions 10 X 10 feet.
It is worth noting that taller people with six-feet height will have around eight-inches of extra space if fully extended on this mattress.
You need a bedroom size of at least 12 X 12 feet if you want to install a king-size bed in your house. A king size mattress is around 76 inches wide and 80 inches long. This mattress is best for active sleepers, couples, and those couples who sleep with their children and pets.
Although two twin XL size beds make equal space as a king-size mattress delivers. But if you and your partner have different sleeping preferences, then a split king-size mattress might be a better option for you.
