LEARN ABOUT MATTRESS SIZES AND DIMENSIONS
When it comes to mattresses, one size definitely doesn’t fit all. There are several factors you should keep in mind prior to selecting the right mattress size for you. One of the most important aspects of a better night’s sleep is ensuring you have enough room to fully relax and sleep. A common mistake in purchasing a bed is buying one that is too small. Before you start shopping, ask yourself if you are satisfied with the amount of sleep space in your current bed and review our mattress size charts to ensure you purchase the right bed size.
Some factors include: the mattress being longer than the tallest person sleeping on it, the bed width allowing enough space to fold your arms behind your head (without going beyond the mattress edge or touching your partner’s elbows), the size of the room in which the mattress is placed, and personal preference for how much room you'd like to have while sleeping. A list of mattresses (beds) and their dimensions can be found below:

TWIN MATTRESS DIMENSIONS - 39" x 75"
Twin size mattresses are 39 inches in width and 75 inches in length. Otherwise known as "single" mattresses, twin mattresses can accommodate one child or one adult sleeper, although the length could be too short for taller adults, taller adults may be more comfortably sleeping on a twin XL bed size. Twin size mattresses are used for children's rooms, bunk beds, daybeds and smaller spaces such as guest bedrooms.SHOP TWIN MATTRESS
TWIN XL MATTRESS DIMENSIONS - 39" x 80"
Twin XL mattresses are 39 inches in width and 80 inches in length. They are great space savers and are commonly found in dorm rooms and guest bedrooms. With an approximately six inches of extra length added to your sleeping space versus a twin mattress, twin XL mattresses may be a better choice for taller adults wanting a twin-size option.SHOP TWIN XL MATTRESS
FULL MATTRESS DIMENSIONS - 54" x 75"
Full size mattresses, also known as double mattresses, at 54 inches in width and 75 inches in length, provide much more width for your sleeping area vs. a twin-size. A full size mattress is ideal for one person, at approximately 16 inches wider than a twin mattress, dividing the mattress in half for two people would only leave 27 inches of sleeping space each (or the equivalent of a crib mattress). A full size mattress is a great choice for growing children, plus the added space allows for parents to lie down while tucking their kids in for the night.SHOP FULL MATTRESS
QUEEN MATTRESS DIMENSIONS - 60" x 80"
Queen size mattresses, at 60 inches in width and 80 inches in length, might be ideal for those wanting ample sleeping space while preserving living space in their room. Providing more width than a full size mattress, which adds additional comfort for two sleepers, a queen size can be great for growing children and taller adults or couples that prefer sleeping closer together. Queen mattresses are the most popular mattress size today and are a good choice for guest rooms or couples that like to sleep closer together.SHOP QUEEN MATTRESS
KING MATTRESS DIMENSIONS - 76" x 80"
King size mattresses, at 76 inches in width and 80 inches in length, are generally the best choice for couples that want the maximum amount of sleeping space, providing almost the same size as two twin XL beds. This bed size is also preferable if you have children, dogs or cats that will be sharing your bed. Since king mattresses are much longer and wider, the box springs are split, making it easier to navigate around stairs and tight corners.SHOP KING MATTRESS
CALIFORNIA KING MATTRESS DIMENSIONS - 72" x 84"
California king size mattresses, at 72 inches in width and 84 inches in length, are great for those looking for maximal sleeping length. The California king is 4 inches narrower than a king size mattress, but it is 4 inches longer. This bed size still gives each sleeper 6 inches more sleeping width than a queen size bed. The additional length also makes the California king mattress size a good choice for adjustable beds, providing ample length even with the head and/or foot elevated.SHOP CALIFORNIA KING MATTRESS
