Canadian Standard Mattress Sizes 2021

MATTRESS SIZE GUIDE CANADA, USA & EUROPE


Looking for mattress sizes? This article will help you find the right sizes and dimensions for your mattress. Beds come in many sizes, from the small single Twin, queen-size and go all the way to the massive California King. Variables in the manufacturing procedures, padding and types of support can all alter the size.



IMPORTANT: This guide offers the most common sizes. It is important to know that there are no legal standard mattress dimensions. As a result, if you are looking for a specific bed size in Canada or the USA, be sure to ask your vendor for exact measurements if you are unclear.



In Canada and the USA, we use terms like Queen, King, Double and so on to define mattress sizes. In other places, like various European countries, the language can be different, and the same name could apply to a different size. So be on the lookout if your set isn't from North America!

Foam Mattresses

Foam mattresses are cut from slabs of foam, so their sizes don't vary as much. As a result, you don’t have to worry about size variations with foam mattresses. They are the exact size they state on the label and description.

Hybrid Mattresses

A hybrid mattress is a mixture of two different styles of mattresses. While you will hear mattresses with different types of foam referred to as a “hybrid,” for our purposes we are speaking of mattresses with springs/coils and then a comfort layer of foam on top. The comfort layer could consist of latex, poly-foam, or even memory foam. For instance, the Haven Hybrid mattress contains comfort latex foam, memory foam, a transition layer with Zoned Support, and pocketed coils.

The sizes between coil and foam mattresses vary a bit, but there's a particularly good reason! Innerspring coil mattresses are much harder and don't squish around as foam mattresses do. As a result, and to make it easier to fit into frames and tuck sheets under them, they're often just a touch smaller. This difference won't be noticeable in your bed frame, so don't worry!


The stiffer nature of the innerspring coil does have to be accounted for, but the manufacturers do that for you.


All these sizes have different intended purposes, and below we've listed those for you! Whether your baby is growing up and you want to get them a real bed to sleep in, or the old double you sleep on isn't good enough for two people anymore, there are options for everyone.
