What are the British well-kept secrets for a good night’s sleep? The question was asked of 2,000 Britons who agreed to take a poll commissioned by a UK bedroom furniture specialist. The number 1 answer comes as no surprise. Exactly 56% of people polled consider that a top quality mattress is the key to a wonderful night’s sleep.
Since at Wedo we know our way around a mattress we thought this was perfect timing to remind you of the UK standard mattress measurements.
With bed sizes, the measurements are the same as for mattresses. Therefore a double mattress will fit a double bed, a king size mattress will fit a king size bed and so on. Of course provided that both mattress and bed measurements are expressed according to the standards of the British bedding industry.
For example, a US king size mattress won’t fit a UK king size bed since the “king size” in the UK and in the USA are not the same. For the record a standard US king size mattress is 193cm wide and 203cm long which is even bigger than a UK superking mattress.
