The Perfect Fit: Finding the Right Size Mattress for You

Just like our wide range of mattresses, we’re all unique. Each of us have different body shapes, sleeping positions and living spaces, which is why choosing the right sized mattress is so important — have a partner that takes up more than their fair share of the bed? Upsizing could solve that. Are you tall or someone who tends to move down the bed while sleeping? A king single will provide you with a bit of extra leg room. Whatever your requirements are, at Sleep Space there’s a perfect mattress for everyone.

 Have a look at our size guidelines below for exact measurements. 

Did you know...

...mattress sizes differ all around the world! Pictured above are the size guidelines we follow here in New Zealand, and they're what you will find if you come and visit us in-store. 

However, in Australia for instance, their King mattress is equivalent to our Super King, and their Super King mattress is what we call a California King. This makes the NZ King size mattress unique to Aotearoa, meaning sheets and duvets can be slightly more difficult to come by.

UK mattresses also differ, available in just 5 sizes: 

Single: 90 x 190cm
Double: 135 x 190cm
King
: 150 x 200cm
Super King: 180 x 200cm
Emperor: 215 x 215cm

Then there is the USA with a different set of names and sizes once again (for convenience we have listed the imperial and metric conversions): 

Twin: 38” x 75” (97 x 190cm)
Twin XL: 38” x 80” (97 x 203cm)
Full: 54” x 74” (138 x 188cm)
Queen: 60” x 80’ (153 x 203cm)
King: 76” x 80” (193 x 203cm)
Cali King: 72” x 84” (182 x 213cm)

So you see, not all mattresses are created equal! This is important to know, as if you have an imported bed and you are looking to buy a mattress to fit, having one made to size can be quite costly.
