Full-sized mattresses are ideal for spaces that can fit something bigger than a twin mattress but aren’t quite big enough to fit a queen, king or California king mattress.A full mattress (sometimes referred to as a double mattress) measures 54 inches wide by 75 inches long and is 16 inches wider than a twin mattress, offering a little extra breathing room. If you’re ready to invest in a new full-size mattress, read on for some practical tips.
Is a Full-Size Mattress Big Enough for More Than One Person?
A full-size mattress can technically fit two adults and is a common choice for couples who live in a small apartment, but it’s much better suited for individuals. 54 inches is a good width for one person, but it can be a little tight for two people, leaving only 27 inches of wiggle room.
How Long Do Full-Size Mattresses Usually Last?
A high-quality mattress typically lasts between 7 and 10 years, which is why it’s important to test out different styles and find the perfect fit. You and your new mattress will be in it for the long haul, so it’s important to think of it as an investment. If you’re thinking about buying an inexpensive mattress, consider the fact that it’ll cost you more in the long run when you have to replace it more frequently. Think of it this way, 7-8 hours of sleep per night adds up, so it makes sense to spend a little more for those quality ZZs.
How Do I Know If a Full-Size Mattress Will Fit in My Room?
It’s time to get out the measuring tape. Not only do you need to measure your floor space to ensure you should be shopping for full-sized beds and headboards, but you need to plan ahead in terms of your bedroom layout as well. For instance, it’s important to know which wall your bed will go on and whether you plan on adding a bedroom set as well.
