Now you have spent some time and figured out which mattress material and technology suits your purpose the most, but what is the best size that suits you? Choosing a right bed and mattress size isn’t necessarily the bigger the better.

We have sum up SIX main tips as a NZ bed and mattress sizes buying guide for you to think about before clicking add to cart.

Tip1: Body Size

Big or petite body size, we all deserve to sleep tight!

If you are looking to sleep alone this may be much easier choice for you, if King Single bed size is too small for you then upgrade it to Double bed would normally put a full stop to it.

To make things the easiest for all, you could refer to this equation:

SINGLE PERSON

Bed width = Body width + 20cm on each side (makes total of 40cm)

Bed length = Body height + 20-30cm

 

COUPLE

Bed width = Total body width of couple + 20cm on each side (makes total of 40cm) + 20cm in between

Bed length = Body height of the tallest + 20-30cm

It is not hard to tell how Queen size bed dimensions are often being most preferred in New Zealand.

Tip2: Sleeping position

You might want to discuss this with your partner to get an idea of what are your preferred sleeping positions?  You may want to upsize your bed and mattress if you or your partner is a starfish or freefall sleeper. You want to also add more measurements on the bed width for side sleepers, especially for taller people in general.

Tip3: Room size

Yes, you may be checking out King bed or  Super King bed size right now but hey! What is your room size? Everything would not make sense if your room would not fit or barely fits your new bed. We recommend leaving extra 50-70cm on each side of the bed and do consider other bedroom furniture in the room too.

Tip4: Bed base and overall bed height

If you are buying bed frames and matching mattress sizes from TreasureBox then we are sure you have nothing to worry about. But let’s say if you are planning to buy or already have a box spring with raised legs, then you may not want to choose a deep mattress like the ones with thick pillow tops. It could be a pain to have a bed that is too high that you have to literally climb up to your bed every night, especially if you are choosing a kids bed.

Tip5: Your preferred bedding

Some would like to keep it simple with NZ standard bed sheets and cover, while others might prefer full set of fitted sheet, mattress padding, mattress protector, flat sheets, blankets, quilts plus extra foam padding around mattress itself. All of these would use up spaces or gaps between bed frame and mattress. Standard NZ beds you can find at TreasureBox would generally have gaps when mattress sits on top of the frame for this purpose.

Tip6: Future planning

This may not seem fully relevant, but it is in fact a very important thing to go through with your partner before choosing a best bed size. Are you expecting parents who may be planning to place a baby cot in the room, or even right by your bed?  Are you parents with kids who still want to sleep with you every now and then when they have bad dreams? Will you be moving in near future? To a bigger house? Or smaller apartments? If you are currently sleeping alone, will you be having your partner moving in soon?

 

Yeah! Big questions aye when it comes to picking a best bed and mattress sizes! We hope these tips on bed and mattress sizes buying guide would help you on picking your perfect bed, for you sleep like a baby every night.
