Making sure that you have the right size bed is about more than just space. The size of a bed also relates directly to how comfortable you will be and as you know, comfort can relate to the quality of the sleep you get to enjoy.
The Mattress Warehouse stocks all kinds of beds, from a variety of different bed brands but what is the difference between the most popular five bed types.
The Single Bed
The single bed will always be a popular favourite among shoppers and because of its size, it can easily fit into any bedroom.
As what is considered to be a starter bed, the single bed size is available from every bed brand. That means you don’t have to compromise on comfort or quality, even if you are opting for a smaller bed.
Single bed size dimensions are:
91 cm x 188 cm
Single XL bed size dimensions are:
91 cm x 200 cm
The Double Bed
Not only is the double bed a fantastic option in any home, but they are also the preferred beds for guest houses and hotels. These beds also fit comfortably into spare bedrooms and easily fit into the budgets of young couples.
Although the queen size bed might be the most popular size mattress, the double bed retains a lot of popularity because it is often the more affordable of the two.
Double bed size dimensions are:
137 cm x 188 cm
Double XL bed size dimensions are:
137 cm x 200 cm
The Three-Quarter Bed
The three-quarter bed is usually the last bed size a child or young adult will have before they “graduate” to the bed size that they might stick to for the rest of their lives. And the great thing about this bed size is that once the child has outgrown the bed, it can easily be used in the guest room.
The three-quarter bed will always have a place in anyone’s home.
Three-Quarter bed size dimensions are:
107 cm x 188 cm
Three-Quarter XL bed size dimensions are:
107 cm x 200 cm
The Queen Size Bed
The queen size bed is just bigger than the double bed, and these days it is one of the most popular beds on the market. The size of the queen bed makes it ideal for both single people who really love their space as well as couples.
These beds are not too big, and they are not too small. In fact, for many people, they offer just the right amount of space to sprawl out comfortably. With this much space, if you are sharing your bed with a sleeping partner you will have a minimal amount of sleep disturbance.
The biggest advantage about having this bed is that it fits quite easily into most bedrooms without looking out of place.
Queen Size Bed dimensions are:
152 cm x 188cm
Queen Size Bed XL bed size dimensions are:
152 cm x 200 cm
King Size Bed
This is the biggest bed on the market, as its name might have given away.
Generally, the King size bed can be a little more expensive than your double bed or even queen size bed, but they are sometimes a more worthwhile investment. This size combined with the right bed brand can result in the best sleep you have ever had! And these beds are ideal for those who are sharing.
The mattress is roughly the size of two single beds pushed together and so it goes without saying that you should first measure your bedroom before buying this size bed. If you are sharing your bed with a partner, having the extra space means no more bumping into each other at night.
King Size Bed dimensions are:
183cm x 188cm
King Size Bed XL bed size dimensions are:
183cm x 200cm
Bed sizes are not only important because they contribute to your comfort. They are also important as they contribute to the overall look of your bedroom.
