How To Select The Right Mattress Size For Your Bedroom

Updated on April 3, 2015

Mattresses are one of the most vital parts of our bedroom without which our relaxation is almost incomplete. If your mattress is not of the right size, it will spoil the entire look of your room. So, select the right mattress size when buying mattress for your home. Whether it is crib size mattress dimensions, dimensions for a full mattress or queen size mattress dimensions, you need to get it right or you will be compromising on comfort aspects! Here are some of the most common types of mattresses and everything you needed to know about the size.

Twin and Full Size Mattress Dimensions

This is the smallest size, just the larger size than the crib size mattress. Twin mattresses are generally 38 inches wide and around 75 inches long. Full size and twin mattresses are generally 75 inches long which sometimes tends to be a bit shorter for adults, especially for men.

Double mattresses or full time mattresses are generally 53 inches wide which means they are around 15 inches wider than single or twin size mattress. Around 27 inches of personal space is left in such a case, which is generally the size of a crib. If you are selecting mattresses online, you can look for customer reviews to learn more about the best sizes and understand which size shall be suitable for you. For instances, it is now seen that parents are selecting full size mattresses over twin mattresses for their kids or teenagers bedrooms.

Queen Size Mattress Dimensions

Queen size mattresses are generally 80 inches long and 60 inches wide. When selecting queen size mattresses, you will know that these are generally 5 inches longer and at least 6 inches wider than any full size mattress. These added inches explain the additional comfort, especially in case of couples. There is 30 inches of personal space which is remarkably comfortable.

Couples are extremely fond of queen size mattresses which offer a luxurious and comfortable feeling. If you are still wondering, if it would be a right choice to buy such a luxurious mattress, check out some queen size mattress reviews and you will understand why these are so popular among couples.
