Are you wondering how to pick the right bed size? When it comes to buying a new bed, we understand your dilemma. Most homeowners find it confusing to choose the right bed size. As the most important piece of furniture in your bedroom, it’s crucial to choose a new bed wisely. Also, after a tiring day, it’s your bed that will give you comfort. So, it’s important that the bed you choose perfectly fits in your room, as well as provides you comfort.
A single wrong purchase decision may result in spending money on a bed frame and mattress that completely overwhelms your bedroom and leaves little or no space for a nightstand, dresser, and other bedroom furnishings. To avoid this frustrating situation, you have to be careful when choosing the bed. When shopping for a new bed, you need to consider some factors before making any decisions.
To order the perfect sleep system, it important to consider the size of the room where it will be placed. Then you need to think about how many people will sleep on it. If the bed is too small then it’s uncomfortable and if it’s too big then it’s impractical. After these major considerations, there comes your personal preference—how much living space you want in your bedroom and what style you’re looking for. To understand these factors better, let’s take a closer look at the common types of beds available and how to pick the right one.
Type of Beds Available
The bed sizes typically available in the market are Single, Twin, Double, Full, Queen, and King. All these beds have different size and well-defined characteristics. For instance, a king-size bed is usually 72 inches (1.8 m) wide and 72 to 78 inches (1.83m to 1.98m) long. King-sized beds are the best choice for couples or two adults and a kid. This bed is the perfect choice for those who prefer to have plenty of personal space and are mostly used in bedroom suites.
The next type is Queen Size bed which is 60 or 66 inches (1.52m or 1.68 m) wide and 72 to 75 inches (1.83m to 1.91m) long. This one is a little narrow than a king-size bed but just the right size for most couples. Another popular type is Twin beds, also known as Single beds. This is the most common option for growing children and these can easily fit in small rooms. The typical size can be 30, 36, or 42 inches (76.2 cm, 91.4 cm, 1.07 m) in width and 72 to 78 inches (1.83m to 1.98m) in length. There are also Twin Extra Long Beds that are 5’’ longer than a standard twin bed. This type of bed is usually suited for college dorm rooms or teen’s bedroom.
If you’re looking for a bed that can fit in a small room, as well as provides good space then go for a Double or Full bed. With a size 48 inches (1.22 m) wide and length between 72 to 75 inches (1.83m to 1.91m), these beds are great for guest rooms and can fit into most small rooms. The type of bed comes between a single bed and a queen-size bed.
