The bed is naturally the most important feature in a bedroom. After all, the whole purpose of a bedroom is to provide a place to
sleep at night. When you’re remodeling a bedroom or moving into a home and purchasing new furnishings, it’s often best to start by choosing the bed because it will likely be the focal point of your floor plan. Before you begin comparing modern beds, you first have to decide which size to buy. Read on for tips on how to select the right bed size for any bedroom.
Step One: Consider the Size of Your Space
The first thing you need to establish before you shop for a bed is how big your room is. You obviously need to have enough space available to accommodate the bed. To compare standard bed dimensions to room dimensions, refer to the following list:
– California King
size bed dimensions are typically 72 inches in width by 84 inches in length
– King size bed
dimensions are typically 76 to 78 inches in width by 80 inches in length
– Queen size bed
dimensions are typically 60 inches in width by 80 inches in length
– Full size bed
dimensions are typically 54 inches in width by 75 inches in length
– Twin bed
dimensions are typically 38 to 49 inches in width by 75 inches in length
Step Two: Think About Your Sleeping Habits
Another thing that you need to consider when you’re comparing bed sizes is how you sleep and your size. Do you sleep alone or with a partner? If you share your bed, do you ever have problems with feeling cramped? Are you or your partner tall and in need of a longer bed? Do your children ever join you in bed, leading to cramped conditions? The answers to these questions
can help you decide which of the standard bed sizes is most likely to provide a comfortable place to rest.
Step Three: Evaluate Your Storage Needs
The last thing you need to take into consideration when you’re thinking about bed sizes is the amount of room that you’ll need for other furniture. If you don’t have a large closet in your bedroom, you may need a sizable dresser and other furnishings to accommodate all of your clothing, and that could mean having to purchase a smaller bed, depending on the amount of floor space that you have.
