Choosing the right bed size might seem like a daunting task, we get asked a lot of questions about this by new bed buyers. If you understand what bed sizes are about it’ll be much simpler to choose the perfect bed size for you, your room and your partner!

The right bed size ensures a great rest, no tossing and turning and no one hanging on for dear life because their partner is taking over the whole bed!

There are a few things you need to take into account when choosing your next bed size:

  • how big you are?
  • how many people are in the bed?
  • and how big are they?

Let’s start with the basics.

BED LENGTH

As a general rule, it’s a good idea to choose a bed that’s 10-15cm longer than the tallest person sleeping in it. Why? The more room you have, the better you’ll sleep!

The Double bed is a popular bed to place in a guest room, two guests can sleep comfortably for a few nights in this snug bed.

A Queen sized bed is a common favourite for two people. It is not too big and won’t take up all the space in a spacious room. It provides enough space for two people to sleep comfortably. This size bed is also great for a single sleeper that loves to spread their wings and fly off to dream land.

The same length as a Queen sized bed, but much wider. If you have the space in your room, this bed will provide the most comfort for two people to sleep in. We definitely recommend it for married couples, with some extra space for the little ones to cuddle with their parents in the early mornings!
