What's the Right Size Bed for You?

Bed sizes available in the United States are twin, single, double, full, queen, king, California king, Western King, and Eastern King.

How can anyone tell the difference between all the bed sizes on the market today? Even the salesperson in the bedding department of your local department store may not have all the facts. It can be a very difficult decision.

So what exactly is the difference between the different sizes of beds available?

Custom Size Bed

Some manufacturers cut custom beds larger or smaller than the standard sizes, but be careful with these custom-made beds. While it may seem appealing to have a custom-sized bed, you may have trouble finding bedding that fits you well.

Twin, Single, and Extra-Long Twin Beds

  • Twin beds are also known as single beds. They are the most common option for children's rooms or multipurpose rooms. These beds are narrow and easily fit in the smallest room. Twin beds often have a "trundle" underneath to accommodate a double bed or a second guest. The single beds are also used as bunk beds.
  • Overall dimensions: 39 "wide x 75" long "
  • Width per person: 39 "
  • Advantages: Due to its small size, it easily fits in smaller rooms. Twin blades are the least expensive of all the blade sizes and are available in various patterns. It is easy to make a single bed.
  • Cons: A standard size is too short for many adults.
    Extra-long single beds are 5 "longer than standard single beds. They are often used in college dorms to accommodate tall teenagers.
  • Overall dimensions: 39 "wide x 80" long
  • Width per person: 39 "
  • Pros: Longer length is good for taller teens and adults. It is easy to do because it is narrow. If you need flexibility in a guest bedroom, two extra-long twins are a good option. They can be used as singles or joined together to form a king-size bed.
  • Cons: Bedding is difficult to find and not available in all standards.

Note: What is considered "standard" may vary slightly between manufacturers. Before buying bedding, make sure you know the exact measurements of the bedding you have purchased. Some fitted pattern sheets may not fit.

Double/Full or Queen Size Beds

Either of these sizes will fit in a normal room, but many couples find that a double bed or a double bed (they are essentially the same thing) is definitely too narrow for anything other than an occasional night's sleep. A double bed gives everyone a little more space, without taking up too much space.

Here is the main difference between double beds and queen size beds:

  • Double/queen beds are 15 "wider than a single, but if two share a bed, each has only 27" of personal space, much less than a single!
  • A queen-size bed is 6 inches wider than a double bed, allowing more space for each person, but still 3 inches less than a single bed.
  • Double beds (also known as double beds) were the most common for two people to sleep in until the 1960s. They are only 15 "wider than a single bed, leaving only 27" of sleeping space for each of the beds. . Of adults. At 75 "long, a full-size bed may be too short for some taller adults.
  • Overall Dimensions: 54 "wide x 75" long
  • Width per person: 27 "
  • Pros: fits smaller rooms. May be ideal for a single bed less than 5'5 "high. Bedding is cheaper than a queen or king-size bed.
  • Cons: Many people consider a double bed to be too narrow for 2 adults and too short.
  • Queen size beds are 21 "wider and 5" longer than a single bed and 6 "wider and 5" longer than a double bed. While this extra width and length can make a difference for a good night's sleep, each adult is 9 "less wide than if they slept in a single bed. A queen-size bed works well for bedrooms. Guests and master bedrooms small and is a good option for couples who like to snuggle.
  • Overall dimensions: 60 "wide x 80" long
  • Width per person: 30 "
  • Pros: Give 2 adults more space than a double. The extra length (5 ") works well for most adults. Sheets and blankets are easy to find and cost less than a king-size bed.
  • Cons: With only 30 "of personal space for each person (only 3" more than a double bed), a queen can be too narrow for a couple's daily sleep. Some bedding is sold as "full / queen" and doesn't really fit full or queen perfectly. Check the dimensions of the bed to make sure it fits comfortably. Standard or queen size pillows work well.

Note: You may find a slightly larger queen size bed called "Olympic Queen". Be careful before buying bedding - standard queen sizes may not fit properly and you may need to downsize to king size bedding, adding considerable cost to your purchase.

King Size Beds

With two king-size beds and four names, it can be confusing to buy a king-size bed. A standard king is also called an eastern king, and a California king is also called a western king. A standard king is approximately 4 "wider and a California king is 4" longer.

Two people sleeping in a king-size bed will have the same personal sleeping space as a single bed. In fact, if you were to push in two extra-long single beds, they would be roughly the size of an oriental king.

For added versatility in a guest bedroom, if you have space, use 2 separate extra long twin beds for the twins or put them together to make a king-size bed for a couple.

When buying sheets, you need to be careful to get the correct size. Flat sheets fit both king-size beds, but fitted sheets are cut to fit one or the other. Before buying sheets, be sure to measure your bed accurately to make sure you buy sheets that fit perfectly.

  • Standard King or Eastern King beds are approximately 16 "wider than a queen-size bed and are the same length. A king bed is sold with two box springs or mattresses and a mattress. This makes it easier to move around.
  • Overall dimensions: 76 "wide x 80" long
  • Width per person: 38 "
  • Pros: As the widest bed commonly available in stores, the standard king-size bed is more comfortable for two adults. The 80 "length is sufficient for most people. Sheets labeled" king-size "will fit on a standard king-size bed.
  • Cost: Due to its size, a king-size bed may not be practical for a single person who has to make changes alone. They are difficult to climb through narrow, winding corridors and small rooms. A king-size bed may not be long enough for very tall people. Bedding is more expensive in king sizes. The wide bed requires at least 3 standard pillows or 2 queen or king-size pillows, which increases the cost.
  • California King or Western King beds are 12 "wider than queen and 4" longer. This is the longest bed commonly available in stores and is the best option for tall people. Like the eastern king, the California king-size bedding set comes with a mattress and two half-width springs for easy handling. Very tall single people can sleep end to end and still be comfortable.
  • Overall dimensions: 72 "wide x 84" long
  • Width per person: 36 "
  • Pros: A California king-size mattress is wide enough for two people to sleep comfortably and is the longest bed commonly available. Its extra length is good for tall people.
  • Cons: This oversized mattress can be difficult to move and may not fit in stairs, narrow hallways, or small rooms. Like the eastern king, the California king-size bedding set comes with a mattress and two half-width springs for easy handling. Very tall single people can sleep end to end and still be comfortable.

Note: Some bed manufacturers differ slightly in their definition of "standard" size. Before buying bedding, make sure you get the exact measurements of your bed so that you can purchase the correct size sheets.
