When it comes to mattresses, sizes and names are not always straightforward. There are many different types of twin beds, and the dimensions of king and California king beds can be tricky to keep straight. It can be challenging to know the differences and similarities between queen, full, and double mattresses. In this blog, we will go over the dimensions of queen, full, and double mattresses, as well as why a double mattress might be right for you.
Double Mattress: Same as a Full Mattress
Full mattresses are the same as double mattresses. They measure 54 inches by 74 inches, and they are often large enough to fit two adults. However, larger folks or people who like to spread out while they sleep will likely find a double mattress too small. Individuals who opt for a double mattress are often pleased with the amount of space available unless they are quite tall. For people who are around the six-foot mark, a longer bed may be in order.
Queen Mattress: Longer and Wider Than a Double Mattress
Queen mattresses are a bit larger than double beds. They measure 60 inches by 80 inches, and while there is only a six-inch increase in both width and length, this can make a world of difference. Queen beds are a popular choice for couples, and their popularity means that finding linens to fit them is incredibly easy. While queen beds are the largest of the sizes covered in this blog, some people prefer even bigger beds. Larger people or families with small children or pets that wander into bed might find a queen bed a bit cramped, and tall folks who still find queen mattresses too short will likely have to choose a California king.
Which Should You Choose?
For many people, a double bed is a good option. If you sleep alone or are short on space in your bedroom, a double mattress would be a great choice. However, if you sleep with a partner and you would like a bit more wiggle room, you will likely prefer a queen bed. Whichever size you choose, stop by your local Sleepwell retailer to try out different mattresses before you buy.
