While twin mattresses are extremely popular, not everyone is aware of the Twin XL mattress option. Luckily, we are here to fill you in. While a twin mattress is perfect for a small space or your child's bedroom, the twin XL mattress provides the same size width while being 5 inches longer (39x80 Inches). At City Furniture, we feature a wide range of twin XL mattresses for you to choose from. Here are some things that you should consider when shopping for a new mattress.
If you have a rapidly growing child or teenager, watching their legs hang of the end of their bed can be entertaining but not entirely comfortable for them. This is where that extra 5 inches in length really comes into play. Additionally, if you need a twin mattress in your guest bedroom due to lack of space, having a longer mattress allows you to host family and friends rather easily. There's no need for you to make your adult brother or cousin curl up into a ball all night. Do yourself a favor and invest in a twin XL mattress instead.
When you choose a twin XL mattress, you will have various comfort levels to choose from. If your child prefers to sleep on a harder surface, a firm mattress is definitely the way to go. This provides quality support for their back and all areas of their body. Traditionally, firm mattresses are innerspring ones with spring and cool construction. However, we also feature cushion firm and hybrid mattresses that mix materials and provide the best of both worlds. On the other hand, if a softer mattress will make your little one happier, check out our plush mattress options. Typically, a twin XL memory foam mattress would fall into this category.
Did you know that if you have an adjustable bed frame you can use two twin XL mattresses as a split king to allow for individual adjustments? Although two twin XL mattresses may be 1-2 inches wider than a traditional king mattress, most adjustable bed frames are made to accommodate this without issue. By using two twin XL mattresses as a split king, it gives you the flexibility to watch TV late in your favorite position, read your favorite book early and do whatever you see fit while your other half finds their sweet spot of relaxation.
