When trying to find the right mattress size to fit the needs of you or your family, these are a few things to have in mind.
First, if you’re planning on upgrading, make sure you know the dimensions of your current bed. You wouldn’t want to shop for a larger option and accidentally choose the same type.
Second, if you’re moving, don’t forget to measure the room that you’ll be sleeping in. It is awful to have a mattress that is too big for space. You’ll have issues getting around the room, and your space won’t be as aesthetically pleasing.
Third, who will be sleeping in it? If it’s just you, you are good to go with a Double. But, if you have a spouse, kids or pets you might want to opt for a larger option such as Queen. King is the ultimate comfort size if your room can accommodate it.
