How to measure bed size

Accessories such as truck bed covers, bed liners, and certain nerf bars require knowledge of your truck bed measurements to ensure proper fitment. Follow these simple instructions to determine the length of your truck bed:

Place your measuring tape at the bulkhead of your truck bed.

Moving along your bed rail, extend the measuring tape to the inside edge of the top of your tailgate. Record the measurement in inches.

Divide the number of inches by 12 to determine the length of your truck bed in feet. Your bed length is the number of feet and residual inches (i.e. 5’8″)

Pro Tip

Keep in mind that most bed manufacturers round their bed sizes up, so just choose the option closest to your measurement. With this information, you’ll be able to choose the correct accessories to fit your truck bed.

How to measure bed size

Bed frames are available to fit king, queen, double or twin size mattresses. The correct way to measure bed frame dimensions is by using a measuring tape to measure the length and width of the mattress area. The length is measured from the top center edge to the bottom center edge and the width is measured from the far left center edge to the far right center edge of the mattress.

Assembling a bed frame is a fairly simple process. It starts by connecting the side frame rails to the headboard and floorboard of the bed frame. These rails should be connected on both sides of the bed creating a rectangular pattern for the mattress to sit into. Both side rails are also connected with middle board rails that keep the mattress from sagging in the center.

There are several types of bed frames to choose from. Most frames are made of wood or steel and come in many designs and colors. It is important that the bed frame dimensions match the size of the mattress. This will ensure the mattress fits easily into the bed frame area after it is installed.

A bed frame will normally outlast a mattress. These frames are made from durable material that can hold the weight of multiple people in a bed. A mattress is more likely to wear out faster because it is made from soft fabric material that wears out over time.

It is important to remember that king size mattresses have two bed frame dimensions. This type of mattress is either a standard king or California king size. A standard king measures 76 inches (1.93 meters) wide by 80 inches (2.03 meters) long and a California king is 72 inches (1.83meters) wide by 84 inches (2.13 meters) long.

Canopy beds have long posts at each corner of the bed frame. These posts are connected with canopy rails that have material draped over them. The bed frame dimensions for a canopy bed typically include both the bed rail size and the canopy rail size.

Queen beds require a wider mattress than standard double beds. The frame dimensions of queen beds are 60 inches (1.52 meters) wide by 80 inches (2.03 meters) long. This type of mattress is wider than a standard bed and is the same length as a standard king size mattress.

It is important to remember bed sizes when buying sheets and bed skirts for mattresses. The bed skirt is a special type of linen that covers the sides of a box spring mattress. Bed skirts come in many sizes to match most bed frame dimensions.

When it comes to bed size, in our opinion – the bigger, the better.

Nothing beats a spacious yet cosy bed to stretch out in. But before you add a super king to your basket, be sure to double-check the space you have available.

The new bed will not only need to fit comfortably in your bedroom, it’ll also need to fit through the front door and be carried safely up the stairs. So to avoid any disappointment on delivery day, here we’ve created a handy guide to help you measure up and choose the ideal size for your home.

Standard UK bed sizes

How to measure bed size

Fortunately, UK bed sizes are standardised – which means, wherever you shop, they’re guaranteed to have the same dimensions in terms of their length and width. But it’s important to be aware, the bed dimensions outlined above refer to the size of the mattress – not the bed frame.

For example, a double bed is designed to accommodate a standard UK double mattress – but the outer frame may measure slightly bigger, particularly if it’s wooden or upholstered. So before you make a purchase, check the full measurement details of the bed very carefully and ensure you have enough space for the particular design you have chosen.

How to measure for a new bed – will it fit?

Step 1: Check the bed dimensions

How to measure bed size

First things first, measure the space you have available – including the length, width, and height (for high-sleeper or bunk beds). If you plan to position the bed in an alcove or recess, we recommend measuring from skirting board to skirting board, rather than wall to wall. It may not seem like much, but a few centimetres can make a huge difference to what fits and what doesn’t.

Then, compare the dimensions of the room to that of your chosen bed. Is there enough space?

One good tip is to mark out the bed’s measurements using masking tape. This should really help you to visualise how much space it would take up and how easily you’d be able to move around it. Ideally, you’ll need at least 60cm of walking space at the foot of the bed and on either side.

Step 2: Think about the surroundingsHow to measure bed size

Once you’re certain the bed will fit in the intended space, it’s also important to consider the impact it would have on other furniture. Think about any doors, wardrobes or drawers currently in the room. Would the new bed block their access? Or make it difficult for you to walk around?

If you plan to buy additional furniture alongside the bed (e.g. bedside drawers, wardrobes), again, it’s worth marking these out on the floor with masking tape. And if the new bed features storage drawers, you’ll need to allow enough space on each side for them to be pulled out.

Step 3: Measure the rest of your homeHow to measure bed size

The bed may fit in your bedroom, but can you actually get it there? From awkward doorways to narrow staircases, there are many obstacles to navigate. And to avoid any hiccups on delivery day, it’s important to measure the access route carefully.

Compare the bed’s dimensions to that of the doorways, hallways and stairs. The bed can be manoeuvred in any direction or angle. So it’s a good idea to measure the height and width, as well as diagonally. And make sure your new bed could be carried successfully, all the way to the bedroom, without causing any damage.

Dog Bed Sizing Guide

Our crate bedding is specifically designed to fit the majority of dog crates made by Midwest, Precision, Four Paws and others. Our dog crate beds are available in the 6 most popular crate sizes.

Our Size Guide is as follows: (XS) 18″, (S) 24″, (M) 30″, (L) 36″, (XL) 42″ & (XXL) 48″. This measurement is the length of the crate, which is the longest side. There are no standard sizes for dog crates; the width and height of crates vary in every collection from every manufacturer. But our unique pattern accommodates the small variances in size, so you don’t have to worry whether your Cratewear will fit.

To determine the correct Cratewear size for your dog crate bed, all you need to do is simply measure the length of the crate from front to back and refer to our size guide. It’s that easy!

Please Note: The X-Small crates vary from 18-22″ in length. Our X-Small Cratewear was made to fit the 18″ crate, which is more proportionate. It will fit a 22″ crate, but the cover and pad will be slightly short. We do not suggest sizing up to a Small 24″ Cratewear set, which would be too big overall.

Setting Up Cratewear Bedding

Please keep in mind that there are no standard dog kennel or cage sizes. Our bedding has been designed to accommodate the majority of crates. For the best fit:

  • Place the bumper in the crate first. Start by attaching the Velcro around the back corners of the crate. Make sure you attach the Velcro above a horizontal bar. This will prevent it from sliding down. Don’t worry if the bumper is short, the crate pad will fill in any extra space. Depending on the size of your crate, the bumper may or may not come all the way to the front edge.
  • Next, place the mattress/pad in the crate.
  • Now you’re ready to put on the crate cover. All seams should be in the back of the crate not on the top. Crate covers provide privacy and security dogs appreciate.

As a truck owner, there are many reasons you might want to know the size of your truck bed. The most obvious reason is if you need to determine its capacity for transport. Simply put, you want to know what you can carry before you attempt to move something too large.

How to measure bed size

Perhaps you are preparing to outfit your truck with some accessories. If you are considering purchasing a bed liner, toolbox, or tonneau cover, they will always require a proper fit. Eyeballing your bed or using the manufacturer’s stated size won’t always get you the desired results.

We have put together a brief guide on how to measure your truck bed correctly. We’ll begin with the basics before moving on to some specific applications and measurement techniques. Let’s get started.

Truck Bed Measurement Basics

Before we talk about measuring for accessories, let’s start with the basics: how to measure your truck bed’s dimensions.

For starters, you’ll need at least a 10-foot or longer tape measure, along with a pencil and paper for documenting your measurements. A smartphone or pocket calculator may also be useful for more advanced calculations.

Measuring the Width of the Truck Bed

To make this measurement, position the tape right at the inside edge of the sidewall, or “bulkhead.” Keeping the tape measure straight, extend it to the opposite bulkhead’s inner edge, and write down your measurement.

Note that many pickup trucks have wheel wells that protrude into the sides of the bed. If you’re trying to lay something flat for transport, measure between the inside of the wheel wells instead.

Measuring the Length of the Truck Bed

Measuring the length of a truck bed is similar in practice to measuring the width. You’ll want to measure from the inside of the front bulkhead to the inside of the tailgate, keeping the tape straight and level to maintain accuracy. Again, you will want to write down the measurement.

Calculating Square Footage

To calculate your truck bed’s square footage, you’ll simply multiply the vehicle’s length by the width, in inches, and divide by 144. Here’s a quick example:

  • Assume a truck bed measures 48 inches in width by 96 inches in length.
  • We would calculate: 48 x 96 = 4,608.
  • We would then calculate: 4,608 ÷ 144 = 32, so our truck bed has an area of 32 square feet.

Calculating Cubic Yardage

In most cases, your primary concern regarding cargo in your truck is the weight rather than its total volume. Even so, it’s illegal in many areas to haul a load that’s piled up higher than the back of the tailgate, so in these instances, you’ll want to find the cubic yardage of your truck bed. You’ll need the square footage to do this, so begin by calculating that number.

Once you have determined this figure, measure your tailgate’s height from the bottom of your truck bed, and divide that number by 12, which will give you the truck bed’s height in feet. For instance, if your tailgate is 18 inches tall, you would write down “1.5”. Now, all of your units are in feet, so you simply have to calculate the volume and convert.

  • Assuming our previous truck bed in this example, 32 square feet at the height of 1.5 feet, would equal a volume of 48 cubic feet (32 x 1.5 = 48)
  • To determine the cubic yardage, divide the cubic feet by 27. So we would calculate 48 ÷ 27 = 1.78 square yards.

Measuring for a Truck Bed Liner

Bed liner measurements are performed in the same way as standard measurements. All you need is a tape measure, a pencil, and some paper. Though the process is relatively simple, bear in mind that this will only get you the raw dimensions; it won’t tell you the truck bed’s shape or profile.

For this reason, most truck bed liners are designed for specific truck models. Truck beds can change from year to year, even between variants of the same model. The more information you have about your vehicle, the better fit you’ll achieve.

Measuring for a Tonneau Cover

Tonneau cover measurements are the same as standard measurements. Many truck beds don’t have round-numbered measurements, a short bed F-150 being a prime example. It has an advertised bed length of 67 inches, but the actual length is 67.1 inches. If you’re confused, there are plenty of online charts with actual bed lengths listed.

If we divide the length and width in inches by 12, it will provide us with measurements in feet. Tailgate liners and rail liners can also sometimes distort your measurements. Make sure you account for their thickness coming up with your numbers before you purchase your Tonneau cover.

Measuring for a Toolbox

When you shop for bed boxes, you’ll notice that there are two different length measurements. One is the distance between the top portion of the box (which sits on your rails), and the other is the width of the portion of the box that sits inside your truck bed. The smallest of the two numbers is the one you should be concerned with.

Height is another consideration. It’s fine to use a toolbox that’s shorter than your rails. It will simply leave a gap between the bottom of the box and the bottom of the bed. However, if the box is too tall, you won’t be able to secure it to your rails. Ensure that you are accounting for this measurement accordingly when deciding on a bed box.

Measuring for Nerf Bars or Running Boards

Nerf bar and running board measurements are a little bit different than standard measurements. For one, you don’t actually measure the length of the truck bed. Instead, you want to measure the distance from wheel to wheel.

There are two types of nerf bars. One of the types is cab length, meant only to help you get in and out of the vehicle and reach the top of the cab. The others are full length and extend as far as the rear wheel.

For safety purposes, you don’t want to measure the actual distance between your front and rear tires. Instead, measure the distance between the wheel wells, then round down to the nearest inch, providing plenty of clearance for your wheels to turn safely.

By now, you know everything you need to know on how to measure a truck bed for most general purposes. If you’d like to learn more, don’t close your browser! You can read more of our guides and learn more about taking care of your vehicle right here!

How to measure bed size

How to measure your bed for Bed Sheets, Bed Spreads, and blankets.

Image Line Arrow Key:

  • Length: Measure from the top (head) of the mattress while keeping a straight, flat line and pulling the tape measure to the bottom of the mattress.
  • Width: Measure across the widest part of the bed from left to right, again creating a line that is straight and flat over the mattress.
  • Height/Depth: Measure from the top of your box spring up to any mattress toppers or padding. Round up to the nearest inch. Depth can vary greatly and affects how your fitted sheet pocket will fit for.

For Most Bedspreads you want it to fall to the floor make sure to add an extra measurement from the top of the bed down to the floor and add that to the total measurement, also remember there are two side that the bed spread needs to fall to.

For Bed Sheets it does not matter if your mattress size is standard height/deep or higher most bed sheets are all deep pocket which means it will fit anything up to 14 inches of depth. The same sheets can be used for standard size mattresses and will just need more tuck under the mattress pad.

Standard Bed Sizes:

Twin Size Bed: 39in × 75in or 99cm × 191cm

Full Size Bed: 54in × 75in or 137cm × 191cm

Queen Size Bed: 60in × 80 in or 152cm × 203cm

King Size Bed: 76in × 80in or 193cm × 203cm

California King Size Bed: 72in × 84in or 183cm × 213cm

Beds are made in standard sizes, such as twin, full, queen and king sizes. It is recommended that you find a bed size that is at least four inches (10cm) longer than the tallest person who will sleep in it. The following measurements can be taken to ensure you get the right bed size.

Steps

Measuring a Bed

  1. Strip the bed of all bedding. You will want to measure it from the exact edge.

Determining Bed Size

  1. Determine if your small bed is a twin. Most twin beds are 39 inches (99 cm) wide, while a “narrow” twin is 36 inches (91 cm) wide. Standard length will be 75 inches (191 cm) long.
  • In the UK, a single bed is 36 inches (91 cm) wide.
  • An extra-long twin, like the beds in most dorm rooms, is 80 inches (203 cm) long. Look for sheet sets that say “x-long twin.”
  • This bed size is used for most standard bunk beds.
  • Move on to a full size bed if the bed is 54 inches (137 cm) wide. It should also be 75 inches (191 cm) long. In England and occasionally in the US, this is referred to as a “double” bed.
    • While a twin bed fits one person, a full bed is best for one large person or two small children or adults.
  • Increase your size to a queen bed if the width is 60 inches (152 cm). The length should be 80 inches (203 cm). If the length is 84 inches (213 cm), it is a California queen sized bed.
    • There is no equivalent to a queen sized bed in the UK. The next largest size is a king.
    • Another type of queen, called the “super,” or “expanded” queen is 66 inches (168 cm) wide and 80 inches (203 cm) long. The expanded is also thicker than the super or the standard queen.
    • Queen sized beds and larger are designed with enough room for two adults.
  • Judge if your bed is a king size. If it is 76 inches (193 cm) wide and 80 inches (203 cm) long, it is a standard king. A UK king sized bed is much smaller at 60 inches (152 cm) wide and 78 inches (198 cm) long.
    • If you are choosing a bed for a room based on these measurements, remember that you should have a foot or two of space on each side for easy movement about the room.
    • It is a good idea to measure the depth of your mattress before you purchase sheet sets. Pillow-top or extra thick mattresses require deeper pockets. Look for an indication that your sheet sets will fit a pillow-top or extra-thick mattress. [2]

    Warnings

    • It is harder to find non-standard sheet sets, like those for the California queen, super king, or expanded queen. They are likely to be more expensive because of their large size and scarcity.
