Other Mattress Sizes:

Depending on your space, budget, and whether you sleep alone or with someone, you might want to consider different size beds. Here are mattress dimensions / mattress measurements that might be useful for you to know about:

Twin

A twin size mattress (also called a single bed) is 38 x 75 inches. They're the smallest standard bed size. They're great for kids. If your kids share a room, getting a bunk bed for them can be a great option! Bunk beds are two beds stacked on top of each other. They are functional if your kids sleep together, because it takes less space in a room than two beds side by side. The size of a Standard, Single or Twin bunk bed is 75 inches x 39 inches x 65 inches. So you'll want to use a twin size mattress to fit onto the bunk bed.

Twin XL

A twin xl mattress is 38 x 80 inches. They have an additional 5 inches in length compared to a regular twin, so it's a great option when your kid is a bit older and growing too tall for a Twin size bed. A twin xl mattress can also be a good option for a teenager.

*Note that twin sheets and twin xl sheets are the same. Whether you have a regular twin size bed or a twin xl bed, you'll want to get twin xl sheets.

Full

A Full size mattress (also called double bed) is 54 x 75 inches. A full size is better for a teenager who moves around; however, it is shorter than a Twin Xl so it's not as good for a tall person. Both options are great for smaller spaces such as studios or small one bedroom.

King

A King mattress is 76 x 80 inches. A king size bed is great for couples who move around a lot, who like more space in bed, and who have kids or pets who take up space. King size beds are suitable for families.

California King

A California King size mattress (also called Cal King) is 72 x 84 inches - 4 inches narrower than a regular King, but 4 inches longer. So if you're more than 6 feet tall, or you share a bed with a taller person, you might want to consider a Cal King bed.

Split King

A Split King size mattress have two Twin XL mattresses (38 x 80 inches).


Split Cal King

There's also Split Cal King mattresses. Split California Kings are (also called Split Cal King) two Twin XXL mattresses (36 x 84 inches).
