Confused by all the different bed/mattress size standards out there on the market? Read this before you buy. The word ‘bed’ refers to two things: 1. The mattress 2. The bed frame The phrase ‘bed size’ refers to the mattress size – not the size of the bed frame. There are a variety of different bed size standards for mattresses, which are as follows: Singapore Mattress Sizes King : W 183cm x L 190 cm Queen: W 152cm x L 190cm Super Single: W 107cm x L 190cm Single: W 91cm x L 190cm Twin: W 99cm x L 191cm European Mattress Sizes King: W 180cm x L 200cm Queen: W 160cm x L 200cm Double: W 140cm x L 200cm Single: W 90cm x L 200cm North American Mattress Sizes King: W 193cm x L 203cm California King: W 183cm x L 213cm Queen: W 152cm x L 203cm Full Size: W 135cm x L188cm Twin/XL Size: W 99cm x L 203cm Australian Mattress Sizes King: W 183cm x L 203cm Queen: W 153cm x L 203cm Double: W 137cm x L 187cm Single: W 92cm x L 187cm Most mattresses sold in Singapore are made according to the standard Singaporean mattress sizes, but don’t be afraid to clarify which type it is if you’re not sure. The reason why so many different sizing standards exist is because mattresses made in different regions are sized according to the average person’s height in the respective region…and Singaporeans are simply shorter in general. We’ve covered mattress sizes – this’ll be important when it comes to buying bed frames. When you shop for beds, the dimensions given often refer to the bed frame itself, not the mattress it will fit. This means that not all Queen sized mattresses will fit a Queen size bed. Take care not to buy a bed that won’t accommodate your mattress simply because its dimensions are smaller than those of your mattress. --EDITED-- The dimensions of the bed frame are: W172cm x D205cm x H120cm. The specifications for Queen Sized mattresses in the different regions are: European Queen-Sized Mattress - W 160cm x L 200cm North American Queen-Sized Mattress - W 152cm x L 203cm Australian Queen-Sized Mattress - W 153cm x L 203cm The three Queen size mattresses above look like they might fit into the Hana Queen Bed because they have smaller/equal dimensions, but they won’t. Singapore Queen-Sized Mattress - W 152cm x L190cm The Hana Queen Bed is explicitly designed for Singaporean Queen mattresses only. Therefore, never assume the dimensions of the bed are synonymous with the dimensions of the mattress it will fit when shopping for a bed frame. Now you finally understand what that “California King Bed” Rihanna sang about actually is. Happy bed shopping! --EDITED--
