Single (Twin) size bed is a perfect solution for kids or single sleeper adults with smaller room. Adults might want to opt in for Single XL (Twin TXL) bed, size since the 5” addition in length does mean a lot for taller people.

Double size bed also known as Full size bed is targeted for young adults, couples that like to snuggle, and possibly guest rooms. Again, there is a XL standard for this bed size and it increases the bed length for 5”.

Queen size bed is a choice of couples with smaller bedrooms, or adults that like to sprawl during sleep. This bed size is the most popular bedroom bed size on the market, as it gives comfort while saving enough space in the bedroom.

King size bed is ideal for couples that like their space and full comfort to sprawl during sleep, or parents that occasionally sleep in bed together with their children. This bed is basically the size of the two single (twin) beds pushed together.

California King size bed is another bed for couples that like their space, but also need some more length. Perfect choice for those who allow their pets to sleep on their bed (under their feet).
