How big is a single bed?
What is a single bed?
A single bed which can also be referred to as a twin bed is made for one single person.
What are the dimensions of a single bed?
The dimensions of a single bed are 3 feet by 6 feet, which in centimetres measures 90cm in width and 190 cm in length.
The size of a single bed is ideal for people who sleep alone or in smaller bedrooms with limited space. The single bed is also ideal for young children as the single bed can follow them into their late teens as the bed is the perfect size for both a young child and an adult sole sleeper. When purchasing a single bed you should also take into consideration your own physical size and weight as this will also impact whether the single bed will be right for you or not, whether it will be too small or just right.
Why is a single bed referred to as a twin bed?
A single bed is referred to as a twin bed because in hotel rooms they have two single beds and call them twin beds as they come in a pair. Though these beds are referred to as twin beds, you do not need to purchase both beds.
What to do if the single bed is too small for you?
If you have looked at the dimensions of the single bed and feel as if the single bed isn’t the right fit for you or the bed space is to small then you can opt for a double bed. The double bed is the perfect middle size bed it fits right between the single bed and the queen size bed. Even though the bed is called a double bed it does not offer enough room for two people to sleep comfortably, the name double bed can mislead people into believing that the bed is made for two people but that’s not the case. The double bed provide enough space for a single adult sleeper who is in need of a little extra bed space.
The dimensions of the double bed are 6 feet by 4 feet and in centimetres that is 135 cm in width by 190 cm in length. This size of bed is perfect for a single sleeper but can also fit a couple though it may be cramped. If you are a couple searching for the perfect bed then I would opt for a queen size bed or even a king size bed though the larger the bed the more the price of the bed will increase.
