What are the dimensions of a Single size bed?
Single mattresses measure in at 90 centimetres by 190 centimetres. Slightly wider than a small single mattress, this bed size is better for guest bedrooms. By combining two single mattresses, you can create a super king size bed. Plus, it's easy to separate the beds when you have multiple guests. This size is also ideal for small studios or pull-out beds.
Who is a Single mattress suitable for?
A single is a good fit for children, tall teenagers, or short adults. If you want a mattress that will last through multiple growth spurts, this is a better choice than a small single size bed. Adults are also more comfortable on a single thanks to extra width.
Single vs. Small Double
The next size up from a standard single mattress is a small double mattress. The small double provides an additional 30 centimetres of width, and is the length. While a single is good for a single sleeper, a double is more comfortable if snoozing with pets.
King Single vs. Single
Compared to a small single, the standard single is 30 centimetres wider. With this extra space, a standard single is better for one sleeper.
