  • Bed Size Types

    Undoubtedly, the bed is the one of the most important furniture pieces in a home. It is also one of the most used. That’s why care and attention must be given not just in choosing it but also in dressing it up.

    Bed Size and Types

    Let us first delve into the process of choosing a bed. When shopping for one, size is an all-important factor that you must consider. To find the size that will meet your needs and requirements, you must learn what dimensions are actually available. However, it is quite difficult to judge based on bed size and types since nothing is really absolutely standard. For the sake of information, we will give you the US and UK standards, which are most common in home stores.

    US Standard

    Single – 39” x 75”
    Double/Full – 54” x 75”
    Twin Extra Long – 39” x 80”
    Three Quarter – 48” x 75”
    Super Single – 48” x 84”
    Full Extra Long – 53” x 80”
    Queen – 60” x 80”
    California Queen – 60” x 84”
    Olympic Queen – 66” x 80”
    King – 76” x 80”
    California King – 72” x 84”

    UK Standard

    Toddler bed – 27” x 55”
    Small Single – 30” x 72”
    Standard Single – 36” x 75”

    Standard Double – 54” x 75”
    King – 60” x 75”
    Super King, also regarded as the “Queen” – 72” x 75”

    If the bed you are looking to buy did not fall in any of the types listed above, you are probably dealing with a bed type that is from a manufacturer from abroad. South Africa, Japan, Australia, Sweden, and Netherlands are just some of the countries that have set their own standards with regards to size.

    Dressing Up your Bed

    After choosing your bed, it is time to arrange it in a luxurious style that you often see, and love, in hotels. Don’t worry because this is not too hard to do. Below is a guideline:

    Step 1: Choose your bed linens. Decide which among the ones available you would like to employ in your own bed.

    Step 2: Put the bottom sheet, usually the fitted sheet.

    Step 3: Place a top sheet. You can place it tucked under the sides or not, depending on your preference.

    Step 4: Add a duvet, a comforter, or a blanket. You can choose among the three which you like to cover you up when you sleep.

    Step 5: On top of everything, arrange your pillows towards the headboard.
