A guide to various mattress sizes

A nice, comfy bed is one of the most important features of a house, let alone a bedroom, and yet with so many different sizes and types available, it's easy to get mixed up. This article will provide a guide to all the different mattress sizes and where you can find them.

Small, medium or large?

Choosing the correct bed can be the difference between a relaxed sleep and long, troubled night. First of all, there are seven standard mattress sizes in the UK, from small all the way through to super kingsize. Let's take a look at the complete list and their resulting dimensions:

  • Small single: 75 x 190 cm
  • Single: 90 x 190 cm
  • Small double: 120 x 190 cm
  • Double: 135 x 190 cm
  • Kingsize: 150 x 200 cm
  • Super kingsize: 180 x 200 cm
  • Super kingsize zipped and linked: 180 x 200 cm

You can even get custom made mattresses if none of these fit of your requirements, with a minimum size of only 60 x 152 cm.

Whether you are looking for a small or a large bed, there are plenty of options available. Here are some of the best places to find them:

Small Mattresses

Small mattresses can be found for as little as £50, although for extra comfort, you'll need to pay a little bit more. If you visit mattressnextday.co.uk/mattress_single.php, each individual mattress is also given a firmness rating.

Medium and Double Mattress

The cheapest double mattresses can be found for around £100 and can reach over £1000 for the most comfortable. Of course, the mattress type you buy also impacts on the price; why not visit bedstar.co.uk/bedstar/mattresses/double to see what they have to offer?

Large and Kingsize Mattresses

For ultimate space and luxury, a kingsize bed could be exactly what you need. Super kingsize beds are expensive, starting at around £200, but for that price you get a bed that will guarantee you a good nights sleep. Try visiting dreams.co.uk/mattresses/mattresses/categories to find the bed of your dreams.

Size matters

Of course, it's no good trying to fit a kingsize mattress in a tiny room and equally, you don't want a small mattress to be swallowed by a grand bedchamber. Make sure you measure your room to match your mattress sizes and choose the best fit, as well as the most comfortable!
