What Are The Different Mattress Measurements?

Many people simply focus on the manufacturer and the soft or hardness they are looking for when choosing a mattress. What is often overlooked are the measurements of the different mattresses. You need to consider before choosing the right mattress for you and your partner is the length and width. These measurements account for movement during the night, the size of the people sleeping and the length of the people sleeping. The last thing you want is to get your mattress home and sleep with your feet hanging off the end each and every night.

The measurements of the USA mattresses are as follows:

o Twin Size: 39 "wide X 75" long

o Long Twin Size: 39 "wide X 80" long

o Double / Full: 54 "wide X 75" long

o Queen Size: 60 "wide X 80" long

o California King Size: 72 "wide X 84" long

o King Size: 78 "wide X 80" long

These are the standard measurements for mattresses of all brands and manufacturers. You will find that by simply knowing this information your success in purchasing a high quality and most importantly comfortable mattress will increase.

With so many different factors to consider when buying a mattress it can be easy to neglect the measurements and it is important to remember that these measurements are not only important for your sleep comfort but for your room as well. Someone with a small bedroom should not be investing in a king size bed that will take up every inch of space, just as someone else with a large room should consider a larger bed than a twin. These are all factors that need to be taken into consideration before a mattress is purchased.

Mattress measurements have retained the same for many years now so once you know them, you can use this information to your advantage for life. Again, it may seem pretty simple, but you never know when this kind of information is going to come in handy!
