Learn about the different types of mattresses to decide which size is right for you!

There are so many factors that go into choosing the right mattress, and size is often high on that list. Most people do not buy mattresses frequently, and it can be hard to decide which size is the right fit for themselves or their children. You spend a significant portion of your life in bed, so it’s crucial to choose a mattress that is perfect!


Twin beds are often for children, but some teens and adults don’t mind the small space for sleeping. These mattresses are 38” x 75”, and suit small bedrooms for your younger kids.

Twin XL

Twin XL mattresses are very popular in college dorms, and most college students will tell you that they aren’t large enough for 18-21-year-olds. The mattress isn’t comfortable for those six feet tall or higher, as your feet may dangle off the edge.


Full beds are much more common and are the smallest mattress that would work for couples. The 54” x 75” gives enough width for two people who don’t have enough space for a Queen sized mattress, but also offers plenty of room for solo sleepers.


Queen mattresses are the most popular style among American mattress shoppers, and most couples believe it is the perfect size. The length accommodates taller people, while the width allows for more wiggle room, so couples don’t feel as though their sleeping on top of each other.


Another popular choice for couples, a King bed is for those who really like their space when sleeping. If you find yourself tossing and turning throughout the night and waking up your partner, the extra width of a king mattress allows you to get comfortable without disturbing your partner.

California King

California King beds are the largest mattresses, and at 72” x 84”, they will not fit in every bedroom. If you want as much mattress as possible, this bed is for you- but be sure to measure your room first!
