If nap time is your happy hour, then pour yourself over your comfy bed and read on. We are here to tell you all about different bed sizes.

The standard bed sizes available in India are Single, Double, Queen and King. Well, the bigger the bed, the more magnificent the name gets. Let's dive into the bed details!

Single beds:

These are narrow beds with standard length, commonly used for children's bedrooms. They easily fit into the cosy corner or become the centrepiece of a small room.

Dimensions: 36 in × 78 in (91 cm × 198 cm)

Width per person: 36 in

Why get it: The small size works in its favour. It is super simple to make a single bed. You can drape it with pleasing patterns of Portico Single Bedsheets and add comforters and cushions to beautify it. Also, its bedsheets are the cheapest.

Double beds: Also known as full beds, they can accommodate two adults. The space available for one person is a little crunched since it is much lesser than a single bed.

Your future depends on your dreams. So dream big in a king-size bed. This size looks majestic, is exceptionally comfortable, and gives you enough room to play with bedsheets, throws, and cushions.
