Mattress Online

Buying a mattress is a huge investment not just in terms of money but also with respect to time as you have to browse and narrow down from the myriad choices of mattress online. A good quality mattress has a lifespan of more than seven years and a wrong size will leave you dissatisfied despite all the effort you put in looking for a new mattress. Before you head to the store or browse online for a mattress, figure out what size you need currently, and in the near future which will give you a comfortable sleep. The below mattress size guide will give you a better perspective of what is currently available in the market.

Single mattress: It is also called as the twin mattress and is the smallest sized bed available for an adult. These are suitable for the kid’s room who can no longer fit into a crib or a toddler bed. It is also perfect for an adult sleeper and fits into a small room. It is usually the most preferred choice for dorm rooms, bunk beds, hostels, etc. It is also good for a person who lives in a tight space but yet wants to enjoy the luxury of sleeping a quality mattress without having to spend a lot of money on it. The dimensions of a single mattress are 30’’*72’’(76.2cmx1.83m).

Double bed: A double bed is also called as a full-size mattress and is a good choice if you are looking for something larger than a twin but does not need the space provided by a queen or a king-size bed. It measures 48’’*72’’(1.22mx1.83m) and is almost the same length of a standard full-size mattress but much wider. Though two sleepers can squeeze in, they are not roomy enough to be comfortable. It is ideal for a young adult who is less than six feet tall but likes to spread out and sleep. An average-sized bedroom of 9.5*10.5 feet or larger can fit in a double bed.

Queen size mattress: The queen sized mattress started gaining popularity in the early 1980s and is now the most popular option especially for people who share a bed with their partner. A queen size bed dimensions offer plenty of space for two people to sleep comfortably and has a dimension of 60”*72”(1.52mx1.83m). Though it occupies more room than a full mattress it can fit into a bedroom of 10*10 you can still have some furniture placed. It is an ideal choice for most couples as it fits into most bedrooms and offers enough space for a couple to have undisturbed sleep.

King size mattress: It is wider by 12’’(30.48cm) than a queen size mattress and is like having two twin size mattresses joined together. It has plenty of room for sleepers and is ideal for large-bodied sleepers and also for those who prefer to spread out. A bedroom with a dimension of 10”*12.5” or larger can accommodate this bed.
