Buying your dream mattress is one challenge, but getting it well-dressed is another. Like a power duo, mattresses along with the
perfectly-sized bed sheets work together to tuck you into a great nights sleep

Bed sheets are useful not only for aesthetics but also in maintaining proper hygiene and comfort for your daily rest, especially when sleeping in the Singapore heat. As such, investing in the right sheets is critical to maximizing your sleeping experience. 

This best bed sheet size guide looks into the different types of beds, which sheet sizes fit best through a comprehensive size chart, and how to make the most of available sheets - regardless of size. 

Guide To Bed Sheet Sizes

The first step to knowing the right bed sheet size is to know the size of your bed first. With many different sizes on the market, knowing the differences between each size is crucial to getting the correct sheets.

Single-Size Bed

As the name suggests, a single bed is a tiny bed intended for one person. It’s also known as a twin bed as it is designed to be placed side by side in a room as a pair.

Single beds provide adequate space for solo sleepers, with the flexibility to push both of them together into a bigger bed. This makes them a favorite among
hotels expecting a varied mix of clientele per room. They’re also ideal for growing kids getting into their first solo bed while having sleepovers with their siblings every now and then. 

Single-Size Bed Dimensions

  • 91cm x 190cm
  • 107cm x 190cm (super single or Twin XL versions)

Single Bed Sheet Size

  • 92cm x 192cm x 40cm
  • 107cm x 200cm x 40cm (super single bed sheets that can accommodate slightly bigger sizes)

Queen Size Bed

Queen size bed sheets in Singapore make for a
luxurious experience for single active sleepers or a just-right fit for couples. Their flexibility makes queen-sized bedding in Singapore a popular choice.

This is not to be confused with a double or full-sized bed. The full bed is bigger than the single size mattress but smaller than the queen mattress in both length and width. For solo sleepers, the size change is an upgrade from the narrow single mattress, but might be too cozy for young couples. 

While significantly wider and longer than the single size, using the queen mattress as a shared space still results in around 20cm less space per person. The tiny trade-off is there. But overall, this shouldn’t be a problem for a 1 parent 1 child sleeping arrangement or for couples that prefer to sleep close together.

King Size Bed

The king size bed offers the widest space across common sizes. Its width is equivalent to two twin beds side by side. 

Some versions of king beds even use this sizing to their advantage and form mattresses with two separate twin spring mechanisms below. Isolating the movements between sleepers, a king-sized bed provides maximum comfort for active co-sleepers.

Bigger sleepers or those with more companions to keep them company at night may consider a super king size bed that provides more width. 

Meanwhile, taller individuals may opt to purchase a California king size bed for extended length. Overall, the king, super king, and California king beds all provide superior space and comfort.

However, consider the room size against the mattress size before purchasing a king-sized bed for yourself. It is usually reserved for master bedrooms with at least 400x400cm of space - even more for a super king or a California king mattress. This is to ensure ample movement within the room. After all, you wouldn’t want your bed frame blocking your way to the windows or the bathroom.

King Size Bed Dimensions

  • 182cm x 190cm
  • 200cm x 200cm (super king size bed dimensions)
  • 183cm x 213cm (California king size bed dimensions)

King Bed Sheet Size

  • 183cm x 200cm x 40cm
  • 201cm x 201cm x 40cm (super king bed sheets) 
  • 183cm x 213cm x 43cm (California king bed sheets)

How To Find The Perfect Size

The best sheets are neither too tight nor too loose - they need to be just right. But with so many sizes available and even more good quality bed sheets in Singapore, how can you best tell if the sheet sets you’re holding will be a perfect fit? 

Know your standard bed size, take accurate measurements and invest in quality materials. While there are hacks to keep your wrongly-sized sheets useful, pushing your fabrics to their limits would ultimately take a toll on their usable life. 

3 Tips To Fix Mismatched Sheets And Bed Sizes

There are many different situations that can leave you with mismatched sheets and bed sizes. Growing kids may trade up to bigger beds, or couples may move homes and face having their usual king size fitted sheets on their queen bed. Or it could simply be an accidental purchase of the wrong sheet size and you’re left unable to return it. 

A bedsheet in Singapore is an investment in itself, so here are some tips on how to maximize your sheets for any size. 

Use Implements

Sheet suspenders and safety pins are handy to keep oversized sheets from moving around during the night. If none of these are on hand, use the sheet weight of the mattress to your advantage and tuck the edges securely.

Cut Where Necessary

With accurate measurements and some sewing skills, cutting and repairing your sheets into a smaller size will do wonders for sheet placement. You can even string in elastics in the corners for additional support.

Stretch Or Shrink Sheets To Your Advantage

Most sheets are made with cotton, which stretches and shrinks over time unless pre-shrinking was done. Take advantage of this fabric’s innate property by stretching your sheets to fit bigger beds, or washing your sheets on a hot cycle for the natural shrinkage to work its magic. 

However, cotton only shrinks anywhere between 4 to 10%, so don’t expect your sheets to move two sizes down anytime soon. Note also that some high-quality cotton sheets have anti-shrink properties so this trick might not work on them.
