Things to Consider When Buying a New Mattress
Before you dive into buying a new mattress, make sure you have considered the following key points.
- Does your mattress fit your bed frame in both length and width?
- How many people does your mattress need to sleep?
- Does it fit comfortably in the room you are shopping for?
What Bed Sizes and Mattresses are Available?
In our mattress collection at Noa & Nani, you can browse a variety of sizes on offer, including classic single and double mattresses. Our mattresses are premium quality and available in a range of styles to suit every sleeping pattern and preference. However, to make sure you find the perfect fitting mattress for your needs, we have broken down all of the standard adult mattress sizes available on the market.
If you’re shopping for children’s, toddlers or baby mattresses, then explore our kids’ mattress guide online now.
As the name suggests, single bed mattresses are an ideal fit for just one person. Measuring 90cm wide and 190cm long, or 3ft wide and 6.3ft long, our single mattresses are the perfect fit for single beds so that you can be confident on a choice from this collection for your single bed frame.
Many people also choose single mattresses for children’s rooms, as they are usually cheaper than toddler mattresses and do not need to be replaced as often s they grow.
Sleeps: 1 person comfortably
Best for: Small bedrooms and children/teen rooms
Small Double Mattresses
Also known as a Queen size bed, small double mattresses have the dimensions of 120cm wide and 190cm long, or 4ft wide and 6.3ft long.
Small double mattresses are comfortable and roomy for one person, but they can sleep up to two people if necessary. If space is of a premium in your bedroom, then a small double mattress and bed might be the perfect option to save on precious floor space and still have a larger and more comfortable bed.
Sleeps: 1 person comfortably or 2 people
Best for: Smaller bedrooms and guest rooms
Double Bed Mattresses
A standard double size mattress is 135cm wide and 190cm long, or 4ft 6ins wide and 6ft 3ins long. The same length as a small double mattress, it is wider, making it a much more comfortable fit for two people to sleep soundly. A standard double mattress is arguably the most common bed size that most people choose as it fits comfortably in most bedrooms, master or guest.
Sleeps: 2 people comfortably
Best for: Average size to larger bedrooms
Both longer and wider than a standard double bed, king mattresses are ideal for taller people as they provide ample legroom. Measuring 150cm wide and 200cm long, or 5ft wide by 6ft 6in long, a king mattress is a spacious upgrade many couples choose for their master bedroom.
Sleeps: 2 people with ample room
Best for: Master or larger bedrooms
Do I Need Special Mattresses for Bunk and Cabin Beds?
If you are shopping for a mattress for a bunk bed or cabin bed, then look no further than our wide range of cabin and bunk bed mattresses available.
Many people assume that regular single or double mattresses are suitable for cabin and bunk beds, but this is true only for bottom bunks. You can choose a standard single or double mattress for the bottom bunk of your beds from our range on offer.
However, if you are shopping for the top bunk or a cabin bed, mid-sleeper or high-sleeper, then you need to be aware of the mattress depth. UK safety regulations dictate that mattresses for cabin beds, top-bunks or mid/high-sleepers must have a depth of 6-7 inches. Any deeper than this, the safety guards and railings on your bed may be ineffective and hindered from doing their job properly.
