The Twin Size mattress is approximately 39 inches wide by 75 inches long, making it the smallest mattress (aside from crib size mattresses). It serves as the perfect size for youth bedrooms. An alternative would be a Twin XL, offering 5 more inches in length.
Also known as a “double”, the Full size mattress is 54 inches wide by 75 inches long. It is 15 inches wider than that of a Twin Mattress, but shares the same length. The Full size is recommended for single sleepers only. This size may be too short for some adults, especially men. More recently, parents have begun choosing the Full size over the twin for teenage bedrooms, and youth bedrooms. It is the perfect size to read a bedtime story, and to tuck your young ones in at night.
The Queen Size mattress dimensions are 60 inches wide by 80 inches long, making it 6 inches wider and 5 inches longer than the Full size mattress. The additional inches have made the Queen size today’s most popular mattress size. It is the perfect size for couples that prefer close quarters or single sleepers that prefer to “sprawl’ out. The Queen size is a great choice for those who have a smaller master bedroom and a great fit for guest rooms.
With dimensions of approximately 76 inches wide by 80 inches long, the King Size mattress is about 16 inches wider than that of the Queen. We recommend the King to couples that want maximum personal sleeping space, as it is the widest mattress. The King is large enough to accommodate Movie night with the kids—or pets, if they have mattress privileges. Two twin box springs or foundations pair well with the King Size, providing the best support.
