Twin mattress size is perfect for children or small bedrooms
The twin mattress size is 39” wide by 75” long suitable for one person. These beds are often used for children’s bedrooms giving the children more floor space in order to play. These beds also known as singles are also good for small bedrooms as they are narrow and easy to fit in the space.
Bunk beds are often the twin mattress size but also can have a double or queen size for the lower bed then a twin for the top. Twin beds have the most economical sheet sets another reason they are great for kids as their bedding is easily changed as they grow. The standard twin size may be too short for tall adults but there is a twin extra-long available. This mattress measures 39” wide by 80” long is good for adults and extra tall teens. Two can be put together to form a king size bed for flexibility in a guest room.
The twin mattress size requires a fitted sheet that is 39”x 75”, a flat sheet that is 66” x 96” and a pillow sheet that is 20” x 26”. The twin extra-long can be more difficult to find sheets for and not come in as many styles. For the extra-long size twin you will need a fitted sheet that is 39” x 80”, a flat sheet that is 66” x 102” and a pillow case that is 20” x 26”.
