Compare Mattress Sizes. Twin, Full, Queen and King mattress size review.

Hi, I’m Andrew, and I’ve set up a visual demonstration of the difference between a twin, a full, a queen, and a king mattress set. A twin mattress is 38 inches wide and 75 inches long. A full mattress is the same length, but it is 53 inches wide. Really, this is the smallest mattress that is acceptable for 2 people. The most popular mattress is the queen, which is 60 inches wide and it is 80 inches long.

Mattress Size Chart.

  • California King   72″ x 84″
  • King                       76″ x 80″
  • Queen                  60″ x 80″
  • Full or double    53″ x 75″
  • Twin or single    38″ x 75″

A king mattress is actually the same width as 2 twins but it is 5 inches longer. A King is very comfortable for 2 adults. The California king is going to be 4 inches longer and 4 inches skinnier than a traditional or Eastern King Mattress.

Box springs and Foundations.

The box spring or foundation of king mattress is always split in two. It is important, when you get a king or a queen mattress, that your bed frame has a center support to give the mattress the proper level of support. Here you also see that this is a traditional 9-inch tall foundation. There is a lower profile box available which is about 5 inches tall. If your bed is taller and you have a hard time getting into the bed, you might consider a low-profile box. The Twin, Full and Queen beds up would typically have a single box spring, but if you have a house that has a curved staircase or a tight turn you have a hard time getting a queen box up the steps. In this instance you might consider a split queen box to make the installation easier.

Those are the sizes of a twin, full, queen, and king mattress. Thanks for checking with us, and we will have more mattress and furniture information on the next video.
