What is happening at our store and in our industry

When buying a new mattress, it can be challenging to figure out what size is ideal for you and your living situation. Whether your new mattress will be for you or someone else, it is key to consider factors that might have an effect on your sleep. Here we have broken down the different size mattresses so you can have a better understanding of what will function best for you.


Twin mattresses are the smallest size mattress, with the exception of cribs, and measure at 39 inches by 75 inches. This size mattress is great for a child that is transitioning out of a crib. Twin-size mattresses can also be an ideal size if you are living in a smaller space, like a dorm room or city apartment.


The next size is a full-size mattress, which measures 54 inches wide by 75 inches long. This is an ideal size mattress for someone who is sleeping alone but wants more space than a twin-size mattress. This is a good option for parents who want their child to have a bigger bed and growing room for the future. A bigger size mattress for children also allows parents to comfortably lay in bed with their child at nighttime. However, two adults sleeping comfortably on this size mattress might be a tight fit. With a full-size mattress, each person is only allotted 27 inches of room, which is the same amount of space as a crib. This is a great option for a single adult or kids transitioning out of cribs, but might be a bit too small for multiple adults.


A queen-size mattress is the most commonly purchased mattress size and measures 60 inches wide by 80 inches long. This is a great mattress for couples and allows a comfortable sleeping situation for two adults. Queen mattresses are best suited for master bedrooms that are designed to hold large beds. These mattresses also have an additional five inches of length, making them ideal for taller people.


King mattresses are just as long as queen mattresses but have additional space in the width. Measuring 76 inches wide by 80 inches long, these mattresses will provide enough space to add a third person, child, or pet, to sleep with you at night. It is no secret that animals, and even kids, tend to think they own the bed. So, why not opt for the bigger size to provide maximum comfort for you and all of your housemates.

California King:

The biggest mattress size is a California king, which measures 72 inches wide by 84 inches long. This is a great option for people who are exceptionally tall. With an added four inches of length, this provides optimal comfort for bigger people, but the width is smaller than a king-size bed. This is an ideal size mattress if you are no stranger to feet hanging off the bed and uncomfortable sleeping arrangements throughout the night.
