Choosing The Right Twin Mattress

The first step in choosing the right mattress for your child's bedroom is determining the size. Most children use twin size beds because they are just the right size for them. Actually, the twin size mattress is also called a single size mattress because it is designed for a single person and not a couple.

The standard twin size mattress is 75 inches long and 39 inches wide. This makes it the smallest of all mattresses, but comes in different styles and price ranges just like its bigger cousins.

Why a twin?

The twin size mattress can more or less fit any size room. The twin size mattress is the size of mattress commonly used in bunk beds, and parents can even place more than one bed in a room if children share.

The downside

The size of the twin mattress can also be a disadvantage because of the single occupant design. Couples who try to use it may find themselves to be cramped and quite uncomfortable. It is also not long enough for adults. That is why twin size mattresses are best for children.
