    Dimensions of Common Bed Sizes

    Standard sizes

    Standard US sizes

     

    Modern manufacturing conventions have resulted in a limited number of standard sizes of commercial bedding for mattresses and box springs. They vary by country of origin.

    Mattress size (width × length)
    N. America Australia UK / Ireland Europe / Latin America
    Twin / single 39 in × 75 in
    99 cm × 191 cm
    36 in × 75 in
    91 cm × 191 cm
    35 in × 79 in
    90 cm × 200 cm
    Full / double 54 in × 75 in
    137 cm × 191 cm
    55 in × 79 in
    140 cm × 200 cm
    (US/Aus) queen
    (UK/Ire) king
    60 in × 80 in
    152 cm × 203 cm
    60 in × 78 in
    152 cm × 198 cm
    63 in × 79 in
    160 cm × 200 cm
    (US/Aus) king
    (UK/Ire) super king
    76 in × 80 in
    193 cm × 203 cm
    (California king
    72 in × 84 in
    180 cm × 210 cm)
    72 in × 80 in
    183 cm × 203 cm
    72 in × 78 in
    183 cm × 198 cm
    71 in × 79 in
    180 cm × 200 cm

    The sizes in the UK and Ireland, other than the double, vary compared to the US sizes, being generally smaller. The US queen corresponds to UK king, and king to super king. The European or continental basic sizes are similar to the UK but have a set length of 200 centimetres. The terms queen, king and super king are not used in continental Europe, and double refers to 140 cm or any higher width. Instead of these US/UK denominations, the bed width is given in centimetres.

    These dimensions are for the mattress—the actual bed frame will be a little bigger in order to fully encompass and support the mattress. The thickness of the mattress may vary considerably.

    Other European sizes

    Modern continental Europe practice is to refer to a bed by explicit width or size ("80 cm bed" or "80 × 200 cm bed"). Other sizes found include:

    Extra small single 
    75 cm × 200 cm (30 in × 79 in)
    Small single 
    80 cm × 200 cm (31 in × 79 in)
    Large single 
    100 cm × 200 cm (39 in × 79 in)

    In France, Spain and Mexico, the length of older beds is sometimes 190 centimetres instead of 200.

    In Italy, beds are classified by width:

    Una piazza or Singolo 
    80–90 cm (31–35 in) wide
    Una piazza e mezza
    120 cm (47 in) wide
    Piazza francese
    140 cm (55 in) wide
    Due piazze or Matrimoniale
    160–180 cm (63–71 in) wide
    Tre piazze or Osimano
    200–400 cm (79–157 in) wide

    Most mattress sizes in the Netherlands are also available in extra long, meaning 220 cm instead of 200 cm.

    In the Scandinavian countries, standards vary from one country to another. In Norway, these sizes are used:

    Small single
    75 cm × 200 cm (30 in × 79 in)
    Single
    90 cm × 200 cm (35 in × 79 in)
    Large single
    120 cm × 200 cm (47 in × 79 in)
    King
    150 cm × 200 cm (60 in × 79 in — equal to two small single mattresses)
    Queen
    180 cm × 200 cm (71 in × 79 in — equal to two single mattresses)

    Beds/mattresses are often available also in extra long (220 cm or 87 in length). Some older beds are only 190 cm (75 in) long, while antique beds often are even shorter (since they in older times often slept in a reclined position rather than the close to supine position which is common today, and also, on average, people are taller now than they used to be).

    Other Australian sizes

    Single extra long 
    92 cm × 203 cm (36 in × 80 in)
    King single
