Which Mattress Size Do You Need?
People come in all different shapes and sizes, which means that someone had to create a different mattress size for each individual person! Thankfully someone smarter than us decided to create only a few unique sizes that would work for a majority of the population! Let’s look through the different mattress dimensions and determine which one would fit best for you!
King Mattress Dimensions (76 x 80 inches)
A King mattress is a great fit for most individuals! The mattress is wide enough to fit two individuals and even better for just one individual (Super Tip). A King size mattress will be significantly wider than your standard queen, but it will provide the same length as your queen. It is also possible to do a “Split King” mattress, which would consist of two individual mattresses with the dimensions of 39 x 80 inches (Don’t worry, together they make a King).
California King Mattress Dimensions (72 x 84 inches)
A California King mattress was made for the slightly taller than average individuals. A California King size mattress gives you 4 more inches of legroom compared to your standard Queen and King size mattress. However, be aware that a California King mattress is 4 inches slimmer than your standard King mattress. It is also possible to do a “Split California King” mattress which consists of two individual mattresses with the dimensions of 36 x 84 inches.
Queen Mattress Dimensions (60 x 80 inches)
A Queen mattress is the perfect mattress for most individuals. It provides more than enough room for one individual, and can easily fit two individuals. A Queen size mattress has the same length as a King mattress but will be about 16 inches slimmer than so. This is a great fit for many master bedroom sets, and even guest room sets!
Full Mattress Dimensions (54 x 75 inches)
A Full mattress is a great fit for most individuals and most commonly children. This mattress is slightly smaller than a queen in both width and length but is still plenty of room for anyone to sleep comfortably. If you’re looking to save some room space, or just simply want to save a few extra bucks for a smaller but still effective mattress, this is the way to go!
Twin Mattress Dimensions (39 x 75 inches)
A Twin mattress is the best fit for smaller rooms or younger children. These are most commonly used in children’s rooms, college/camp dorms, or bunk beds. A Twin mattress has the same length as a full mattress but is much slimmer than so. It is also possible to purchase a “Twin Extra Long” which has the dimensions of 39 x 80 inches. This is the same mattress found within a “Split King” setup.
