What are the dimensions of a Small Single size bed?
Single mattress dimensions are 60 cm by 190 cm — the smallest mattress you can buy besides toddler beds. Due to its small size, a single bed is often purchased for children and young teenagers. Small adults can fit in a single size bed, but it may seem too short for adults over 6 feet tall. This size mattress is commonly used in smaller bedrooms or in guest rooms.
Who is a Small Single mattress suitable for?
A small single mattress is great for children who have outgrown their cribs and need freedom to get in and out of bed. It is also a good fit for young teenagers who are under 6 feet tall. While single beds can be used for guests, it may seem small for some adults.
Small Single vs. Standard Single
Standard single mattresses are 30 centimetres wider than small single mattresses. The extra width of a standard single makes a major difference for taller children or adults. The length is the same for both beds.
Single vs. Toddler
A small single is the smallest mattress available, other than a crib or toddler mattress. Oftentimes, children will upgrade from a crib mattress to a single mattress when they are old enough to climb out of their crib. A single mattress with a low bed frame is ideal for children who will not outgrow it for several years.
