Mattress sizes and dimensions

Mattress size has a pivotal role in determining what type of mattress you want to purchase. If you live in an apartment, or a home, by yourself, or with your family, these factors can influence the decision making process when it comes to purchasing a new mattress. Queen size, Full bed, Cali King. You have heard these words tossed around casually before in mattress stores or commercials, but what do they mean? You need to know the specifics to be adequately informed and guarantee a satisfactory purchase.

A twin-size mattress commonly measures at 38 inches wide and 75 inches long. These are the mattresses traditionally seen in dorm rooms or smaller bedrooms. They can come in XL for a little more legroom, but traditionally, these are the measurements you can expect to see. The next step up is going to be the full bed which comes in at 54 inches by 74 inches. A full bed is an ideal mattress for a single sleeper as it can accommodate one person comfortably with more than enough room. Next step up is the queen mattress, and the most commonly purchased for good reason. The queen mattress measures at 60 inches by 80 inches and is quite spacious. It certainly gives more space than a full mattress and is quite a step up in size by comparison. Queen mattresses offer an extra six inches of width and 6 inches of length that is sure to accommodate two, or maybe a very large pet! Moving along, the king size mattress is the largest by far, boasting 76 inches of width and 80 inches of length. Keep in mind, that it is the same length as a queen size mattress, just much wider, 16 inches to be exact! This mattress can sleep two and then some, guaranteeing personal space and restful sleep. Lastly, a California king size mattress offers some relief in terms of length, 72 inches by 84 inches. This mattress is often preferable to sleepers who need a little extra leg room and suffer from their feet hanging off the bed!

It is of the utmost importance to have a base of knowledge when you enter the arena for purchasing a new mattress. Shifty mattress salesmen will do anything to push a sale on an misinformed customer, so be sure to place your trust in someone who isn’t going to take advantage of you.
