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.
One downside for choosing to buy a bed of the queen size is checking for the dimensions of the room. When you measure the bed, don"t forget to focus on the frame, not just the mattress. Frames are generally larger than the mattress. Not every house will have the same room measurements so you may have to take a look into other sizes to fit your bedroom.
A standard double measures 53 inches wide by 75 inches long. It isn"t really twice the width of a standard single as many would think. This is why a double mattress is not ideal for a couple, but definitely comfortable for a single adult. Especially for those who have the habit of being sprawled out or tossing and turning while sleeping, the double would be perfect.
One advantage for choosing a queen bed is being able to find tons of selections for mattresses and sheets. Express yourself and fit the style of your bedroom with your personality. As your very own private space, you should feel free to do whatever you want with it. Paint the frame with your favorite hues and get matching side tables and lamps. Buy more pillows, but more importantly get a good set of duvet covers that would match the theme of the room. You may also get different sets of sheets and covers so that it will be refreshing to the eyes whenever changing time arrives.
