How to Properly Measure the Length, Width and Height of your Mattress and Bed

As you are aware of the different mattress types we have in store, it’s time to know which size you need for your bed.  To get it right, you need to learn how to measure your bed.

You will need:

  • A tape measure (With inches/ft)
  • Or an A4 size photocopy paper. The longer side is approx. 29.40cm which is approx. 1ft (1ft = 30.40cm)
  • A pen and paper (To note down the dimensions)

Steps

  1. Measure the Height: Measure the mattress, from the bottom, where it rests on the bed, to the top.
  2. Measure the Length: Measure the length of the mattress, from the head of the mattress to the foot of the mattress.
  3. Measure the Width/Breadth: Measure the width of the mattress from side to side.

 

Different sizes and what they mean

Single Size Mattress

A Single (or Twin) size mattress has a length that can be comfortably used by men as well as women. These are popularly used by children, teenagers, or adults sleeping alone. It has 36 x 72 (or 75, or 78) inches, (3ft/3.5ft by 6ft) measurements that make it ideal for single taller sleepers.

Double Size or Full-Size Mattress

A double size mattress has 48 x 72 (or 75, or 78) inches, (4ft by 6ft) dimensions and is wider than a twin size mattress. It is a perfect choice for people who are 5’5” or shorter. This is the standard double size mattress category.

Queen Size Mattress

One of the most popular styles of mattresses with the couples sharing a bed, a queen size mattress comes with 60 x 72 (or 75, or 78) inches (5ft by 6ft) measurement. Its popularity is due to the added comfort it provides and also the ease with which it fits most of the beds.

King Size Mattress

The latest entry in the world of comfortable sleep is a king-size mattress. The mattress provides extra space to the couples who share a bed, so much so, that they feel they are sleeping all alone on a twin size mattress. The standard king-size mattress is available in 72” x 72” (or 75, or 78) (6ft by 6ft) size.

Note: It is important to properly measure your mattress and bed frame before purchasing an encasement. We do not accept exchanges or returns on opened packages due to hygiene and bed bug concerns.
