Mattress Size Vs. Bed Frame Size
When buying a new bed, you’ll want to ensure it fits in your room comfortably. Therefore, it’s worth knowing which types of beds and bed frames tend to have larger dimensions.
Your mattress size should always correspond with the bed size you buy. For example, if you have a double bed frame, you should get a double mattress. While a double mattress measures 190 x 135cm, it’s impossible to give an exact double bed size. This is because each style will vary, and some designs have headboards and footboards adding to the overall size of the bed. Kids beds have a recommended mattress size to fit the bed frame, whether that be toddler, single or euro single.
Bed frame size according to style
The dimensions of your bed will differ depending on which style of bed frame you choose:
- Divan beds without a headboard will have the same dimensions as your mattress as it will sit flush on top of the divan base.
- Wooden bed frames are usually a few centimetres bigger than your mattress around each side.
- Upholstered bed frame dimensions differ hugely depending on whether they have a sleigh shape, the amount of detail and the fabric.
Always check the dimensions of the bed before purchasing to ensure it fits in the room with enough space to move around the sides.
