What Size Are Single Mattresses?
Single mattresses are 3ft wide and 6ft 3in long, making them the perfect size for children as they outgrow their first beds as well as being able to accommodate a single adult. Single bed mattresses are also commonly used in guest bedrooms and shared accommodation such as hostels. Whether you're looking for a temporary sleeping solution or something more permanent, the quality of our budget single mattresses is certain to fit the bill.

Single Mattress Firmness Levels
Choosing the correct firmness level for you is a crucial step when improving the quality of sleep you experience. We all sleep differently, which is why our mattresses come in a full range of comfort gradings to appeal to all different types of sleeping positions. Whether you require a cushioned, softer mattress or a firmer single mattress with ample spinal support, our range has your needs covered.
If you sleep on your side, a softer mattress is likely to be the type you opt for. The added plushness alleviates pressure on key areas such as the hips and elbows, reducing the likelihood of you suffering any aches and pains as it spreads the body weight equally. Soft single mattresses are also a top choice for lighter individuals.
For those who sleep on their front or tend to switch between sleeping positions during the night, a medium single mattress gives all the support and cushioning they need. Somewhere in between both sides of the firmness spectrum, the medium option gives just enough firmness and allows the body to sink into the mattress at the same time.
Back sleepers and heavier individuals should opt for a firm or extra firm single mattress. This type focuses on spinal support, keeping your body aligned correctly for healthier sleep. The added firmness is also favoured for other sleep ailments and joint pain, providing a consistent, unmoving base for you to rest.
