Southport Bed Shops Guide to Selecting the Correct Mattress Size

If you have been looking through the different styles of mattress and have come to a final decision, you may think you can rest easy.  Think again!  There is still the chore of choosing the correct mattress size.  And to increase the choice, we stock seven super sizes here at your bed store Preston!


The mattress sizes are split up as follows:

Small Single 75cm x 190cm 2ft 6in x 6ft 3in

Standard Single 90cm x 190cm 3ft x 6ft 3in

Small Double 120cm x 190cm 4ft x 6ft 3in

Standard Double 135cm x 190cm 4ft 6in x 6ft 3in

King 150cm x 200cm 5ft x 6ft 6in

Super King 180cm x 200cm 6ft x 6ft 6in

Super King Zip n Link 180cm x 200cm 6ft x 6ft 6in


Generally speaking, it is recommended that your mattress should be at least 4-6 inches longer than the tallest person using it.  When looking to invest in a larger mattress, it is vital to measure your room to not only ensure that your new purchase will fit in, but that it won’t be too imposing.


Size Selection

Super King Mattresses offer a huge sleeping area, but also require a large room to house it in.  The Super King Zip n Link is an innovative mattress which can separate into two smaller sizes, not only offering versatility, but also meaning you can fit in through the door!  These Zip n Link mattresses can sometimes be difficult to find as not all Southport bed shops will stock this style, but Bold Street Beds have a huge range available.


A King Size mattress is a great option for taller people, and can fit better into smaller rooms.  The Double mattress provides each sleeping partner 67cm of space and is the standard choice for most beds.  The Small Double provides many of the same benefits as the Double for those with less space to work with.


Single and Small Single beds are great for children or guest bedrooms which are often short on space.  Single mattresses are the same length as the Double, but just narrower, so they can also be a great choice for adults too!
