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 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.
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!
