We know you are really good at this and it will be another euphoric experience for you. Let’s start, take off all the coverings, oh we are talking about mattress coverings like toppers, protectors, pillows, bedsheets, etc. We hope you remove all of them until your mattress is bare.
It’s time to take out the measuring tape and measure your mattress inch by inch. To measure the length of the mattress, put the starting end of the measuring tape on the head of the mattress and keep unrolling the tape until you reach the foot area of the mattress. Note down the final value on the measuring tape and that is the length of the mattress. The standard mattress length is 72 inchs, 75 inch or 78 inch. Your mattress length might vary depending on the bed size.
To measure the thickness of the mattress, move towards one edge of the mattress. Place the measuring tape to the top area of the edge and measure till the bottom of the mattress edge. Note down the final value on the measuring tape, that is the final thickness of the mattress. Your mattress thickness may vary anywhere between 4 inch to 10 inch.
Here come’s the tricky part. To measure the width of the mattress, move to left side of the mattress. Place the measuring tape on the mattress and move your measuring tape from left to right. This will give you the final width of the mattress. Mattress width is classified in terms of either dimensions or size name.
