A Complete Guide


Choosing the right bedding size is essential for creating a comfortable and inviting sleep environment. However, for those who have experienced the contrasting dimensions of beds in the United States and Europe, it's clear that international variations can pose a challenge. In this guide, we'll explore the differences between US and Irish bedding sizes, shedding light on the nuances that can make all the difference in achieving a restful night's sleep.

The Basics

UK Bed Sizes

Single, Double, King, Super King.

US Bed Sizes

Twin, Full/Double, Queen, King, California King.

Understanding the Measurements

US Twin

Please be aware that the US twin is slightly wider than the UK single.

US Twin:
99 x 190.5cm (3’3” x 6’3”)
UK Single:
92 x 191cm (3” x 6’3”)

US Queen

When considering bedding for an American Queen size bed, it's important to note that it measures 60" wide and 80" long.
On the other hand, a UK king-size bed measuring 60" wide has a slightly different length of 79", providing a clear distinction between the two bed sizes.
However, due to the slight difference in length, UK King bedding can still work well on an American Queen bed.

US Queen:
152 x 203cm (5’0” x 6’8”)
UK King:
150 x 200cm (5’0 x 6’5”)

US King

While it may seem that the label "King Size" is universally understood, this is not the case. The differences between UK and US king-size beds are substantial.

UK King Size Bed:
150 x 200cm (5’0 x 6’5”)
US King Size Bed:
193 x 203cm (6’4” x 6’8”)

US Full

The double bed in the UK shares the exact dimensions as the entire bed in the United States.

US Full:
137 x 190.5cm (4’6” x 6’3”)
UK Double:
137 x 191cm (4’6” x 6’3”)

California King

The closest UK size to the California King is the Super King.

A California King bed is longer but narrower than a Super King bed, measuring 183cm x 213cm (72 inches x 84 inches) compared to the Super King’s 180cm x 200cm (71 inches x 78 inches).
