Picking the right mattress is a matter of comfort but also convenience. A good mattress helps you get good sleep and achieve better health overall. You may have already decided on the type and firmness of the mattress you want. Now, it’s time to select the right size for your bed.
Knowing the size of your bed is good for when you are planning your interior design, making purchase decisions, or simply looking for bed sheets and other beddings that will fit.
California King or the Western King
This bed is 72 x 84 inches or 182 x 213 centimeters. This is the same size as two single beds combined except it’s slightly narrower. This is great for masters bedrooms and married couples.
At 76 x 80 inches or 198 x 203 centimeters, it is slightly bigger than the California King and can perfectly fit two adults.
This size is ideal for couples in a small master bedroom and can also be great for guest rooms. Queen Size beds are 60 x 75 to 80 inches or around 153 x 203 centimeters.
Single or Twins beds are good for kids up to their teens. These beds are 39 x 75 inches or 99 x 190 centimeters. Given this size, individuals up to 5 feet tall can comfortably sleep on this bed with sufficient extra space.
While many people think that Double or Full size beds are big enough for two adults, it is actually rather narrow. Two adults would have to sleep on a 27-inch wide space which is one foot narrower than what a single or twin bed would offer. These mattresses are 54 x 75 inches or 137 x 190 centimeters in size.
