Bed Sizes Explained

So, you have decided what you want to spend and you've used our unique Comfort Solutions Lab® to help you find exactly the right mattress for your unique comfort requirements. Now you need to choose the bed that fits (literally). It is absolutely essential to have a bed that is the right size for you, and your bedroom.

We stock all standard bed sizes, and are on hand to advise what bed dimensions are best for you based on your sleeping habits, those of your partner and the space available. Our bed sizes are in centimeters so that you can easily see if the bed you want will fit in your room. Here is our comprehensive guide to bed sizes:

Super King Size Bed Dimensions

The largest of all the beds, a super king size bed conjures up images of royalty and grandeur.

The super king size bed dimensions in South Africa are 200cm x 200cm.

It is the best of both worlds when it comes to sharing a bed - large enough to have your own space, but still able to snuggle when you want to.

King Size Bed Dimensions

The king of beds, the name really does say it all, a king size bed fit for a king and queen.

The standard king size bed dimensions in South Africa are 183cm x 188cm, whilst an extra length king size bed is 183cm x 200cm. Struggling to visualise it? A king sized mattress is approximately the size of two single beds.

If you want a totally undisturbed night's sleep, free of tossing and turning from the other side of the bed, then go for a king size bed.

Queen Size Bed Dimensions

The dimensions of a standard queen size bed are 152cm x 188cm. The queen size bed is one of the most popular bed sizes. It's versatility makes it ideal for both couples and single sleepers, and it fits into most main bedrooms without too much hassle.

Not too big and not too small, for the majority of bedroom layouts a queen size bed or mattress offers the perfect proportions while delivering on space and comfort.

Double Bed Dimensions

Smaller than a queen, but still suitable for two sleepers, the standard double bed size is 137cm x 188cm.

Also available in extra length (200cm) double beds are an excellent option for spare bedrooms, young couples, guest houses and hotels and smaller main bedrooms.

A great bed option for smaller spaces - double beds are a budget friendly way of upgrading from a smaller bed without compromising too much on space.

Three Quarter Bed Dimensions

The three quarter bed is a very popular size with young adults. A three quarter size bed offers a little more space than a single bed. Three quarter size mattress dimensions are 107cm x 188cm and the extra length is 107cm x 200cm.

A three quarter bed is a great upgrade for teenagers and university students and it doesn't take up too much bedroom space.

Single Size Bed Dimensions

Single bed mattresses are the most versatile of all the bed sizes. They can be used as a kids bed, spare room bed, a daybed or in hotels and guest houses.

Thanks to the convenient size - single beds can fit into any bedroom. The standard single bed dimensions are 91cm x 188cm (or 200cm for the extra length).

What is an Extra Length Bed?

If you struggle with your feet hanging over the edge of the bed - we offer extra length beds and mattresses. The standard length is 188cm, while the length of an extra length bed is 200cm, which caters perfectly for taller people. Just make sure you buy extra length linen!

Choose the Bed Size that Supports you

The size of the room, the nature of your sleeping patterns, who (or what) you share your bed with, and the required weight capacity of your bed all need to be considered when choosing a bed size that will offer you the comfort and support you need. Thanks to our exclusive Comfort Solutions Lab®, you don't need a degree in sleep science to find the right bed.
