Single Bed Size

Single beds are normally 3ft (90cm) wide and 6ft3" (190cm) long. This makes them ideal if you sleep alone or reside in a smaller-sized room. Comfort certainly isn't sacrificed with a single bed either, with every bed sold here at Time4Sleep promising a wonderful night's sleep. They're the perfect choice for children too, and a fantastic investment that will see them through until their late teens. Remember to always check the overall external dimensions of the bed frame as these vary between products.

Why Size Really Does Matter

There are many factors that should be considered when it comes to choosing your bed's size, and it's important to take some time to assess the dimensions of each type of bed before you make a purchase.

Bed size can make a world of difference, both to the quality of your sleep and to the overall design of your bedroom. Comfort is always a top priority, so you'll want to make sure you have enough space to completely relax and stretch out. If you're buying for a young child, don't forget that they'll need space to grow too!

As for style, the incorrect bed size can really spoil a room's design. Too large, and you'll find the space feels overcrowded and uncomfortable. Too small, and your bed will be swamped and look out of place.

Will it Fit?

Ordering a bed and finding that it will not fit or work within the space that you have is a headache we can all do without. Here are a few points to consider.

  1. Always check the overall dimensions of the bed (we quote the overall external dimensions of the beds within our range). Normally on a bed frame the overall external dimensions will be bigger than the mattress due to the thickness of the side rails and head and foot end. Different styles of beds can vary significantly in terms of the overall footprint of the bed, for example some sleigh beds have big curves on the head and foot end whilst with other styles the mattress may come all the way up to the foot end.

  2. Remember to allow for the depth of the skirting board, and door openings when planning your space.

  3. Check the headboard height of the bed if the bed is located under eaves as it may restrict how far back the bed can go against the wall.

  1. If in doubt try and mark out the actual floor space on the floor using newspaper, if you do this for all items that will be in the room it will give you a clear picture of how workable the remaining space is.

  2. You may also wish to check the position of sockets for bedside lights etc.

  3. If you're tall remember Double beds are only 190cm (6'3) or King size 200cm (6'6) in length, so if you are choosing a bed frame you may be best opting for one which has a low foot end.

  4. Finally check the access. Will the items fit up the stairs and round balustrades and banisters.

Whilst nearly all beds are self-assembly some headboards can be extremely large.
