1. WHO WILL BE SLEEPING IN IT?

To help narrow down your options, let’s first think about who will use the bed. Is it for you and/or your partner, a child, guests that come to visit, or someone else? Think about how many people it needs to accommodate.

Children and teens can easily sleep on a single mattress, though often appreciate the width of a double or queen mattress.

While double mattresses can suit an adult or guests in a pinch, it’s often more comfortable to offer a queen mattress in case two people need to sleep on the mattress. If deciding between the two, let your room size be your guide (see below).

Singles and smaller couples find they have plenty of room on a queen mattress, but it’s best to be sure. One helpful hint: this size is often the most common in retail showrooms, so you can easily judge its size by visiting a retailer near you.

King mattresses are good options for taller persons or for couples who prefer extra room, especially if little ones like to hop into bed with mum or dad.
