Choosing Mattress Size

When buying a mattress it is very important to consider the size that you need. It is a common mistake for couples, and even singles, to buy beds that are too small for them. As having space while you sleep is important for many people, a mattress that is large enough to accommodate this is essential for a good, undisturbed night’s sleep.

Full Beds, also known as “Double Beds”, are 53 inches wide and only 15 inches wider than a single (twin size) bed. Full beds are approximately 75 inches long, which may be too short for persons taller that 5 feet 5 inches. When buying a bed for a teenager, planning ahead for their height changes is important and may warrant the purchase of mattress larger than a full.

Queen beds are approximately 60 inches wide and 80 inches long. This type of mattress is perfect for guest rooms, smaller master bedrooms and for couples who don’t require much space from each other while sleeping. A queen size bed is also the perfect choice for a growing teenager and a single “sprawler”.

King beds are the most luxurious as far as room. These mattresses are approximately 76 inches wide and 80 inches long, making them 18 inches wider than a queen. This type of mattress is the best for maximizing personal sleeping space. The most important thing to consider when buying a mattress this big is whether it can be navigated into your bedroom through some corridors, doors and stairwells. It's a good idea to break out the tape measure if there is any doubt.
