European Bed Sizes Explained – with Measurements

By , July 28, 2010 10:41 am

Many people get confused about European bed sizes. In recent years there have been a number of changes to the variety of bed sizes on offer so that it is quite easy to buy a bed and then find that you have great difficulty in finding bed linen to fit your bed . Companies like Ikea  only stock Swedish sizes which is fine but for the fact that they make and sell a very limited range of bed linen. The UK market has also been a target for the large European bed manufacturers as UK consumers demand wider and longer beds with much deeper mattresses.

So where to start? We don’t want to alarm you but there are over 20 standard sizes commonly found across the EU. The standard European sizes are below and these are the dimensions you will need for fitted sheets, dimensions are always shown with the width first, then the length and then the depth of the mattress.

We have shown both standard and deep mattress depths as it is quite likely that your mattress is 26cm or 10″ deep. If you buy a standard fitted sheet it will not fit your deeper mattress and will “ping off” during the night. Take care before buying bed linen to make sure you know the dimensions of your bed.
