What Mattress Size is Right for You?


Whether you sleep alone or with a partner, it’s important that you choose the right size mattress to give you as much room as possible.

What should I take into consideration when selecting the correct size of my new mattress set?

For Adults

  • The mattress should be longer than the tallest person who will be sleeping on it and wide enough so that the person has enough space to lie in their natural resting position without reaching beyond the edge of the mattress, or in the case of couples, having their elbows or knees touching. For couples we recommend a queen, king or California king.
  • The closer you get to your partner, the greater the chance for motion transfer as well as heat transfer which can disturb your restful sleep. Larger sleep surfaces reduce these factors.
  • Consider your lifestyle needs. Do you expect young children or family pets to join you in bed? If so, additional sleeping space would be required.

For Young Children

  • Consider the length of time you expect to keep the mattress before replacing it. You should select a mattress that your child can grow into instead of growing out of.
  • Remember to factor in times where you may need to spend time in bed with your child such as nighttime readings and comforting sessions. If space permits, we suggest a full size.
  • Sometimes children have accidents.  To protect your new mattress investment, we recommend purchasing a quality mattress protector.  Mattress Dealzz offers mattress protectors at economical prices.

For Teens

  • Remember these are their growing years, so anticipate growth spurts and select a size they will not grow out of.
  • It is likely homework and study time will be spent in bed as well as video gaming.
  • Your child may be off to college in a few years, so take into consideration that the room may be converted into a guestroom. If space permits, we suggest a full or preferably a queen-size.

For Guest rooms

  • Consider if couples will be using the bed. If so, a full size with proper edge support would meet the minimum requirement. If space permits, a queen would be recommended since most couples sleep in a queen sized bed. Your guests will appreciate the added space and have a more restful stay.
  • Anticipate that you may be sleeping in the guestroom on occasion. Relief from a snoring or restless partner, or other times where young children may come in for comforting from your spouse or partner.
  • Children’s sleepovers where more than one child would be sleeping in the bed.

Other factors to take into consideration when replacing one size to go to another size:

Many of our customers, when shopping for a new mattress, don't take into consideration the cost of new sheets, blankets and a comforter.  Before you decide to upgrade to a different size, make sure you’ve budgeted for these additional items.
