A Complete Guide


When it comes to creating a comfortable and inviting sleep environment, choosing the right bedding size is essential. 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 the US twin is slightly wider than 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 measures 60" wide and 79" long.

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 the UK and US King Size Beds are quite 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 same dimensions as the full 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).
