Bed size


The size of the bed actually has a significant impact on our sleep quality, if you move around in bed on average 30 to 50 times a night it is highly likely that you will disturb each other when turning over if the bed is too small.  A 90x200 cm bed is considered a standard bed for 1 person, nevertheless there are many people who sleep in a 140x200 cm (2x 70 cm) or 160x200 cm (2x 80 cm) double bed, in actual fact 180x200 cm should be the standard size for everyone.

Of course there does need to be enough space in the bedroom to fit a larger bed but in the end we lie in our beds for 8 hours and we stand up in the room for a few minutes in the morning and in the evening, which is more important?


What is the ideal bed length relative to your height?  Add 20 cm to your height and you will arrive at the minimum length for your bed. If you are 170 cm tall, then a 200 cm standard bed will be adequate, if your are 186 cm tall, then you will need a bed measuring at least 210 cm.

All manufacturers of mattresses and bases De Slaapadviseur works with are available in 210 or 220 cm lengths larger sizes can be worked with upon request

Tip: pillow

In Belgium the standard pillow size is 60x60 cm, but if you pick one measuring 60 cm wide by 40 deep, you will save 20 cm in bed length.
