When it comes to getting a good night's sleep, the right mattress size plays a crucial role. 

You might have heard myths about beds and frames and which size suits you. 

Today, we're here to demystify these myths and provide a size-by-size comparison to help you find the perfect fit for your needs.

Finding the Perfect Fit

Selecting the right mattress size is akin to finding the perfect fit in a world of options

Much like trying on clothes or shoes, your mattress size should cater to your individual needs and preferences. 

Let's explore some key factors to consider when finding the perfect fit for your mattress:

1. Personal Preferences. 

Consider your sleeping habits and personal space preferences. 

Do you like to sprawl out or curl up? 

Are you a solo sleeper, or do you share the bed with a partner, kids, or pets? 

Understanding your personal preferences is essential in determining the ideal mattress size.

2. Bedroom Size. 

Take the dimensions of your bedroom into account when choosing a mattress size. 

A spacious bedroom can accommodate larger mattress sizes, whereas smaller bedrooms may require more compact options to ensure ample space for movement and furniture placement.

3. Sleeping Partners. 

If you share the bed with a partner, consider their sleeping habits and space requirements. 

A larger mattress size, such as a queen or king, provides ample space for both individuals to move comfortably without disturbing each other's sleep.

What Size Should You Get?

Let's break it down size by size:

  • Single Mattress (91cm x 188cm). Ideal for kids' rooms, guest rooms, or small bedrooms. A single mattress is also a good option for individuals who prefer sleeping alone and value space conservation.

  • Double Mattress (137cm x 188cm). Also known as a full-size mattress, this option offers more room to stretch out than a single mattress. It's suitable for couples who like to snuggle or for individuals who appreciate extra space.

  • Queen Mattress (153cm x 203cm). The queen mattress is one of the most popular choices for couples. It provides ample space for two people to sleep comfortably without feeling cramped. It's also a great option for individuals who enjoy sprawling out.

  • King Mattress (167cm x 203cm). The king mattress offers the most space out of all the standard sizes. It's perfect for couples who want plenty of room to move around or for families who like to co-sleep with young children or pets.

Choosing the Perfect Mattress Size for Your Sleep Needs

Mattress sizes can vary around the world, which can sometimes lead to confusion. In New Zealand, we follow standard sizes such as single, double, queen, and king. 

However, it's essential to consider your personal preferences and the dimensions of your bedroom and furniture when choosing a mattress size.

Selecting the right mattress size is crucial for a good night's sleep. 

By understanding the differences between single, double, queen, and king mattresses, you can make an informed decision that meets your needs and preferences.
