What Size Mattress Should I Buy?
How Much Space Do You Have?
Consumers should consider multiple factors when deciding on mattress size. For one, the available space in your home should be taken into account, and individuals should always measure the room for which they're purchasing a mattress to avoid buying a bed that's too big. The number of sleepers is an important consideration, as well.
Common Mattress Sizes
Twin mattresses are 38 inches wide and should only be purchased for small children or single adults. Full size mattresses generally work for young adults or young children who'll eventually grow into the bed. Queen beds are 60 inches wide and 80 inches long and are the most popular size mattress for partner sleep. Kings or California kings are ideal for those who want the most sleep space possible or individuals who prefer extra distance from their sleep partner. While kings are the widest available mattresses, California kings are the longest and are ideal for tall customers, as the total length is 7 feet.
