How do I know what size mattress is right for me?

We get the question all the time, what size mattress should I select? Should I purchase my child a single, king single or double size mattress? It is ultimately up to your personal choice, room size and budget, but below are some useful tips that can be helpful in guiding you towards a selection.

Single Mattress

Ideal for children and young students. There are fantastic mattresses developed specifically for children and their growing bodies. Bedshed has a great range of mattresses perfect for growing bodies.

We recommend checking out the exclusive Dreamsense Kidz range, which also has functional features including drawer and trundle options making this a comfortable yet functional mattress. The Sealy kids range of mattresses are perfect for all growing bodies, shapes and sizes.   

King Single Mattress

The perfect mattress for growing children who may need more length than a single mattress can offer. This is also a great solution for mature single sleepers. Many Single and King Single mattresses offer the advance technology and comfort levels that Queen and King Mattresses provided.

We suggest reviewing the Sealy Posturepedic Singles range. This mattress range is designed to provide the perfect balance of orthopaedically correct support, pressure-relieving comfort, and long-lasting durability.

Double Mattress

This size has moderate room for two sleepers, and ample room for one. Perfect for a teenager who needs a bigger mattress than a king single and a good solution for smaller room sizes being shorter and narrower than a Queen. For some couples a double mattress can be a cosy fit, it could be worth considering a Queen size depending on room space.

Check out the Dreamsense range if you’re looking for a double mattress, this mattress range was exclusively designed for Bedshed. It has great support and technology to ensure a great night’s sleep, but at a price point you will really feel comfortable about.

Queen Mattress

The queen size mattress is a popular choice for couples and the most commonly sold size. The range of mattresses available is very comprehensive. The best way to find the mattress that is right for you is to do the try test! Simply lying on the mattress and going with what feels best, is the recommended way to find your perfect mattress.

Our most popular ranges include the new generation Sealy Posturepedic. This features the SRx coil, a revolutionary technology that senses your body’s weight and responds with initial conforming support, then provides the extra correct support your body needs and allowing your muscles to relax and recover while you sleep.

King Mattress

The King mattress is growing in popularity as it provides a generous sleep area for two people. But make sure there is enough bedroom space to support a king size mattress, the general rule is to allow around 1 metre around the 3 sides of the bed. It is generally said that a larger mattress will reduce partner disturbance as you feel less motion from their movement.
If you are looking for the ultimate in comfort and technology, check out the Beautyrest Black range. Carefully crafted to ensure an unsurpassed night's sleep, this mattress features an elegant design, cutting-edge technology and luxurious fabrics that you won't find on any other bed.
