When It Comes to Mattresses, Size Matters

If you wake up feeling stiff or like you didn’t get any sleep, or if you toss and turn all night trying to find that just-right position, then your mattress may be to blame. Let us help you find the right fit for your sleep habits!

Picking a mattress size is the first step toward better sleep. There are many factors that you should keep in mind when picking the mattress that’s right for you: your space, your sleeping arrangements, and your habits.

Is your home a little space challenged? Do you love to spread out from corner to corner like a starfish in sheets? Does your partner? Does your dog share the bed? Shopping for a mattress might have you feeling a little like Goldilocks. Let’s help you find one that’s just right!

Here’s a quick look at mattress sizes in inches:

  • Twin: 39” x 75”
  • Full: 54” x 75”
  • Queen: 60” x 80”
  • King: 75” x 80”
  • California King: 72” x 84”

Twin & Full

If your space is small or you’re shopping for a child, check out a twin mattress (or the extra 5” length of a twin xl) or a full mattress. While these sizes may not provide the most room to spread out, there’s still plenty of comfort to be had! These bed sizes are ideal for bunk beds, day beds, loft spaces, futons (full), or guest rooms.

So, give your kids, overnight guest, or in-laws enough room to get sound, sweet sleep. We do not, however, recommend making your in-laws sleep on a twin.


If those options don’t float your dream ship, why not check out a queen mattress? This mattress will give you and your sleep partner plenty of spread-out space.

Give a queen mattress a try for more room and more comfortable sleep. Be sure to measure out your bedroom or sleep space before getting a bed larger than a full. No one wants to squeeze between a dresser and a bed in the morning rush to get ready for work, even if you work from home.


Still not enough? Do you have the itch to sleep like royalty? Is the 60” x 80” size of a queen not doing the job? Then it’s time to check out a king mattress, sometimes referred to as an Eastern king mattress. These mattresses have typically more than enough room for you, your partner, and maybe even a pet or two.

Again, make sure your room is big enough for the extra 16” width and don’t forget to take your bed frame into account. It’s also important to make sure you can maneuver the 76” x 80” mattress up stairs and through doorframes. If space is tight, consider a split-king. We’re more than happy to answer any questions about split mattress types and sizes, too!

California King

There is a step above a king mattress: At 4” narrower and 4” longer than a king, a California king (sometimes called a Western king mattress) is perfect for a bedroom that might be a little too narrow for a normal king. Still a huge mattress, Cal kings provide space for single sleepers to really stretch out, and still enough room for you and your sleep partner, all while providing space between the mattress and the wall, dressers, or any other bedroom furniture.

As with all the mattresses above (we can’t stress this enough): measure, measure, measure! Make sure your room is ready for this mattress before you buy!
