Mattress Sizes

Choosing the Right Mattress Size

When choosing the right mattress size for yourself, there a few factors to consider:

  1. Available space: Measure the dimensions of your bedroom or the space where the mattress will be placed. Ensure that you have enough room for the mattress size you’re considering, along with any other furniture or walking space you require. Don’t forget to factor space for the box spring, bed frame, or adjustable base that you may purchase along with your mattress.
  2. Sleeping preferences: Consider your sleeping habits and personal preferences. Do you prefer a lot of space to move around while sleeping or do you tend to stay in one position? A larger mattress may be more suitable if you prefer more space.
  3. Sleeping partners: If you share the bed with a partner, you should consider their preferences as well. It’s important to choose a mattress size that accommodates both of you comfortably. For couples, a queen or king-sized mattress are the most commonly chosen. 

Mattress Size Trends

When it comes to selecting the perfect mattress, size matters. While standard mattress sizes like twin, full, queen, king, and California king have long been popular choices, recent trends in the mattress industry have seen a surge in demand for alternative sizes that cater to specific needs and preferences.

  1. Twin XL and the Rise of Dorm-Friendly Comfort: One notable trend in mattress sizes is the growing popularity of the Twin XL. Originally designed for college dormitories, the Twin XL offers the same width as a regular twin mattress but provides extra length (approximately 80 inches). This additional legroom appeals not only to college students but also to taller individuals seeking greater comfort without sacrificing space in their bedrooms.
  2. Split King for Personalized Comfort: The Split King mattress has gained traction, especially among couples who value personalized sleep experiences. Comprising two twin XL mattresses placed side by side, the Split King allows each partner to select their preferred level of firmness or use adjustable bases independently. This trend reflects a growing emphasis on customized comfort, accommodating the varying preferences and sleep needs of individuals sharing a bed.
  3. Hybrid Sizes: Blending Dimensions: The rise of online mattress companies and the demand for more customization options have given birth to hybrid sizes. These sizes combine dimensions from different standard sizes to cater to unique requirements. For instance, “twin XL plus” offers a wider twin XL mattress, while “full XL” provides extra width compared to a standard full-size mattress. Hybrid sizes provide customers with a wider range of choices to meet their specific spatial constraints and personal preferences.
  4. Custom Sizes: Tailored Solutions: In line with the increasing desire for personalized sleep experiences, Verlo Mattress offers custom sizes.
