Twin XL Mattress Is A Wise Pick For Teens & House Guests
It's Five Inches Longer Than A Standard Twin Mattress
The Twin XL mattress is a common fixture in dorm rooms across the country – it’s a fun rite of passage for teenagers to buy their first set of Twin XL sheets are they prepare to head off to college.
Yet anyone with a particularly tall kid will tell you this longer-than-average Twin mattress is great to have at home, too. The Twin XL mattress is 39 inches across – the same width as a standard Twin mattress – yet 80 inches long, which makes it about 5 inches longer (and equal to the length of a King). This size isn’t always readily available at local stores; Coast to Coast Mattress, however, carries more than 100 styles for you to pick from. Well-established brands such as Sterns & Foster, Simmons, Serta, Sealy and Spring Air all make luxury models in this size.
Treat the purchase of a Twin XL as you would other mattress sizes. To buy Twin XL mattress sets, choose a level of firmness that complements your body’s natural curvature. Our name-brand companies create the Twin XL size in many versions of their most popular models, including Memory Foam and Euro Pillowtop styles. We always keep our prices competitively low and throw in free delivery, so you don’t have to hunt down any other Twin XL mattress sale. You also don’t have to special-order sheets, as plenty of national retailers now sell readymade Twin XL bed linens in a wealth of patterns, colors, fabrics and thread counts.
The best thing about Twin XL mattresses is their versatility. If your home is tight on space, the extra length can make this a great choice for adult guests. Push two together and you essentially have a King-size mattress. Similar to the standard Twin, it’s a size that works in virtually every space and home.
