Bed size standards vary around the world. Not only are the names of the standard sizes sometimes different but even beds and mattresses with the same name can have different measurements in different countries. Even within a single country different manufacturers interpret the "standard" bed sizes differently. Some might shave a couple of inches off to reduce cost, others add a little for comfort. Those few inches can make a lot of difference.Beds are usually labeled according to the dimensions of the mattress - the actual measurements of the bed itself might be a little wider and/or longer. A Standard King is also called an Eastern King and a California King is also called a Western King. A Standard King is about 4" wider and a California King is 4" longer.
If you would like the bed cover to hang a little more, than you will need a larger size comforter cover. In this case, you will need to switch to a Full Size cover. Full Size duvet covers can measure around 76" x 87". The Full Size duvet cover will hang 37" in Width and 12" in Length on a Twin size bed. It will hang an extra 9 inches more in Width compared to the Twin Size bedding and long enough to cover the box spring mattress.
A Twin Size mattress usually measures 39" Wide x 75" Long. A Twin Size duvet cover measures around 67" x 87". This bed cover will hang 28" in Width and 12" in Length from the mattress. In this case, you would need a bed skirt or an over sized flat sheet for your bed if you decide to purchase a Duvet Cover with these exact measurements.
In buying a queen bed, one must always consider the quality of the furniture. Quality is always related to the reliability of the manufacturer as a known and tested maker of furniture like the queen size bed, which comes in many designs. Wood is the most common material since it can be easily shaped into various forms conceived by designers. Wooden headboards are the most conspicuous part of the bed and are what the eyes behold when one enters the bedroom. The price of a queen bed depends upon the kind of wood used which defines the quality and durability of the furniture.
