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.
Many people don't mind having a bed covering that reaches slightly beneath the top mattress but many of us do mind and that's when it is time to take out the old measuring tape. Duvet covers don't usually cover the box spring as a bedspread would but not everyone likes owning a bedspread. A duvet cover is much easier to take care of and also great for redecorating. Here are just a few suggestions that may help make shopping for a Twin Size duvet cover a whole lot easier.
A queen size bed is the most common type of bed available in the stores. This is because commonly, the dimensions of the queen bed is fit for any master"s bedroom designed for houses. Traditionally, its measurement is at 60 x 80, just right for a regular sized couple. However, queen size beds may have other variations in sizes to accommodate different types of people. There are some, which have an increased length so that it can accommodate taller people, like the California queen bed. Some may choose to have the Olympic queen size, fit for larger people.
Double beds are also known as full-size beds. It was the standard mattress size for couples until the early 1900s. Afterwards, couples prefer at least a queen-size bed or, better yet, a king-size for maximum comfort.
