Bed Sizes & Mattress Dimensions in New Zealand
You sleep for about a third of your life. Choosing the right bed matters, and selecting the correct size is key. Often people don’t give much thought to their bed for years, but what you need can change over time with your lifestyle and living situation. There may be a partner to consider, kids, or a dog. Your mattress should be replaced at least every 10 years, although foam and latex mattresses can last longer. If you’re thinking about buying a new mattress or bed, take a few minutes to read this helpful quick guide. For years of better sleep, it’s worth the effort.
Originally created for Queen Elizabeth I, the queen bed size gained popularity in the 1950s as people got taller, becoming the mattress of choice in New Zealand for many years. More than half of New Zealander’s sleep on a queen size mattress, while double beds account for less than 5% of sales. Today, bedrooms have become a second living area for many, a place to relax and watch TV with their partners. People are opting for larger master bedrooms and larger beds, with the king, super king and California king sizes increasing in popularity. For couples, having some extra space in bed can help them both get a better night’s sleep.
Standard bed sizes and names vary between countries. Standard UK sizes include a small single and a small double, while their king size is closer to the Australian queen size and the super king almost the same as a regular Australian king. New Zealand bed names and sizing are virtually identical to their Australian counterparts, with the exception of the kings – New Zealand king dimensions are 165cm x 203cm (59in x 80in) and while the super king is 183cm x 203cm (72in X 80in) both smaller than the Australian king size beds of the same names.
