Fitted Sheet Dimensions

You should match the dimensions of your fitted sheets with the dimensions of your bed. The first step is to learn how to properly measure your bed. You need to figure out the right dimensions of the mattress and then get a fitted sheet with matching dimensions. Here’s what you should do to measure your bed and get the matching fitted sheet dimensions.

Measuring Your Bed

Getting the measurements of your bed is relatively easy. You basically begin with the length and width of your bed. Once you have that measured, you can now move on the stuff that is a bit confusing. The next thing you should do is to measure the mattress depth. To do so, you need to measure the thickness of your mattress. This is called the mattress depth.

UK Bed/Mattress Sizes

If you live in the UK or own a UK single bed, which is 3′ x 6′, then you should get fitted sheets that have its dimensions as 76 x 200 x 20cm. A UK single long mattress (3′ x 6’6″) should be matched with fitted sheet dimensions as 90 x 200 x 20cm. A UK small double size mattress (4′ x 6′ 3″) should be matched with a 120 x 190 x 20cm fitted sheet. A UK double (135 cm x 190 cm) should be matched with a fitted sheet with dimensions as 135 x 190 x 20cm.

A UK king size mattress (150 x 200cm) should be matched with a fitted sheet with dimensions as 150 x 200 x and 20cm. A Euro King IKEA size should be matched with fitted sheets that are 160 x 200 x 20cm. A UK super king size mattress should be matched with a 183 x 200 x 20cm fitted sheet. In case that your mattress has greater depth, you can get the fitted sheets with a 26cm depth.

US Bed/Mattress Sizes

You use different fitted sheet dimensions when dealing with US sized beds. If you have a US size twin bed you should get a flat sheet that is 39″ x 76 x 8″. For a US full bed you should be getting a fitted sheet dimensions as 54″ x 76″ x 8″. For a US queen size mattress the dimensions of the matching fitted sheets are 60″ x 80″ x 8″.

A US eastern king size bed should be matched with fitted sheets with dimensions of 76″ x 80″ x 8″. A California king size mattress should get a 73″ x 85″ x 8″ fitted sheet. Take note that other mattress depths such as 10″, 12″, 14″, and 16″ are also available.

Cheat Sheet! A Buying Guide for Your Baby’s First Pram

The word “pram” has gotten very muddled over the years. What exactly does “pram” refer to?

Some people think of it as a synonym of pushchair. The truth, however, is that although prams and pushchairs serve the same functions, they do have different styles and designs that make them dissimilar.

First of all, a traditional pram was designed as a carrycot on wheels. Traditional prams were large and hooded, with the child facing the person manoeuvring it. These traditional models were commonly fitted with large wheels and offered greater suspension, keeping the baby safe and comfortable. However, traditional prams are so large that they are generally not collapsible and often will not fit in the boot of the car. More importantly, they are designed for the use of infants, not toddlers or older children.

A pushchair, on the other hand, is literally a chair you can push. Although some pushchairs are more similar to prams in that they carry infants, offer a lie-back feature and can swivel the child’s direction, the common pushchair is often simply a seat fitted into a chassis. It is lighter, easier to use, collapsible and can accommodate even bigger children.

If you are looking to purchase your infant’s first pram, look no further. Here is a quick cheat sheet to help you in choosing what suits your child’s needs best. Print it, bring it with you to the shops and pick out the best pram to suit your requirements:


Take note of your child’s size. Some companies differentiate their models depending on your child’s age. Although this is useful, age is not always an accurate representation, because some children are bigger (or smaller) than average for their age. A better method is to take note of your child’s height and weight. For infants, take note of the weight capability of the pram and compare to your child’s total weight.
Take note of your own lifestyle. Are you constantly travelling by car? Do you like long walks in the park? These considerations will affect your choices. A traditional pram won’t be the best choice if you’re looking at constant travel by car. On the other hand, these traditional models are perfect for long, leisurely walks. You should take stock of what you commonly do, as your child and your pram will both be part of your lifestyle soon.
Take note of your surroundings. People who frequent the beach or live in areas with rough cobbled roads should look for sturdy models that can handle rough terrain. Wheels are often the primary feature to take note of with regards to this concern. Three-wheeled pushchairs and prams are best for rough surfaces, and you’ll be ensured of your child’s comfort and safety.
Take note of safety features. Most prams and pushchairs these days offer a number of additional functions. Seat harnesses, auto-lock, powerful brakes – these are all important and should be taken into consideration.
Take note of ease of use. A lot of times, you will be handling your child’s pushchair on your own. A lot of mothers commonly shop with their infants or young children in tow, so having a system that is easy to use, setup or store is very important.

Keep these considerations in mind and be ready to pick out your child’s first pram.
