How big is a full size bed for kids?
A full size bed for kids is often referred to as a double bed, and is roughly 16 inches wider than a twin. A standard full size bed is 53 inches wide and 75 inches long, and typically offers more than enough space for growing children and teenagers.
Is a full size bed OK for 2 kids?
Typically a full size bed is for one person, though in different regions and cultures a full size bed may be used to sleep more than one sibling. That’s a personal choice based on the size and age of your children, as well as a variety of other factors. Kids sharing a bedroom is pretty common, and young children making the most of an oversized bed is common in space-constrained major cities and tight apartments.
What size sheet is right for a full size kids bed?
Opt for a full size sheet for a full size kids mattress, though queen sheets are only seven inches wider and can easily work if you’re in a pinch. Because you wouldn’t want your sheets to be pulled so tight that they tear, most full size sheets measure 54 inches wide—a full inch wider than the mattress itself—to allow ample space for movement and breathability.
If you have a deeper profile mattress, consider buying full size sheets that come with deep pockets—these should measure at least 15 inches in height/depth.
How can I clean a full size bed for kids?
First, it’s important to use a waterproof mattress cover on any children’s bed—accidents happen. And nose bleeds. And sippy cup spills. And markers gone awry… and the list goes on. Check our helpful guide on how to get blood stains out of a mattress, and then do yourself a favor and invest in a top-rated waterproof protector like this SafeRest Mattress Cover.
