When choosing the perfect mattress size, it has a lot to do with one’s personal preference since there is really no "one size that fits all". One needs to know that choosing the right size of mattress requires serious consideration; this is because the mattress is one of the most commonly used and probably the most important furniture in the house. Individuals spend one third of their life in bed and since the mattress is a very important asset and a very good mattress is indeed a necessity, one tends to buy it like an investment.
The mattress size considerations differ across different regions. In Nigeria The common types are 7x7 Ft. For Supersized beds(These types and larger size often require you to pre-order from Factories), 6 X 7 Ft., 6 x 6 Ft for Queen Beds, 4 x 6 Ft for Single Beds and the Student mattresses
The extra-long twin mattresss are usually 5 inch longer than standard twin mattresss. This twin mattress is good enough for a single person and where space is a real issue. Most college dorms have Twin XL mattresss.
Full and double mattresss are usually a luxury choice for a single person that wants more comfortable room. Some very small built couples may also get by sleeping on a full mattress if space is an issue. The sheets and mattressding are common and less expensive, too.
The extra-long Full mattresss may be a better choice for a tall person that loves to have spacious sleeping room at the same time. Should we say that two tall people may be okay on a full mattress? Maybe not as we don't see the mattressdings very common for this size either.
A Queen mattress is a very common choice for couples. There should be enough comfortable room for two in this size. The queen size is also very popular even for single individuals that just want total freedom with sleeping space. A queen size mattress has also been a very common choice for guest rooms.
A standard King mattress is a better choice for couples if money and room space are not an issue. This size offers couples the maximum amount of mattress width and is the same size as two extra-long twin mattresss side by side. A king mattress size usually has the box spring in two pieces for easy moving.
As was stated earlier the sizes of mattresses might vary from country to country. Mattresses are a good choice for couples that have children; we don't find many disagree that children do sleep with their parents from time to time.
