Bedding question

    Recommended Posts

    Hi everyone,

     

    Here in the UK we have bedding sizes in single, double, king and superking. In Oz you have single, double, queen and king.

     

    Is our king size the same as Oz kingsize or is our king size the same as Oz queen size?

     

    Hope you understood that!

    Hi

    The UK king is the Oz queen. Singles are the same. Hope this helps

    HI , found this on another site

    Bed Sizes in Australia

     

    Strange one this but bed sizes are different here than in the UK so if you're concerned about bed and bedding sizes here goes (and it's in feet and inches for those of you not in metric):

    Single - Aussie = 3 feet x 6 feet 2 inches

    UK = 2 feet 11 inches or 3 feet x 6 feet 3 inches

     

    King Single - Aussie only = 3 feet 6 inches x 6 feet 8 inches

     

    Double - Aussie = 4 feet 6 inches x 6 feet 2 inches

    UK = 4 feet 6 inches x 6 feet 3 inches

     

    Aussie Queen = 5 feet x 6 feet 8 inches

    UK King = 5 feet x 6 feet 6 and 3/4inches

     

    Aussie King = 6 feet x 6 feet 8 inches

    UK Super King = 6 feet x 6 feet 6 and 3/4inches

     

    These are different again from UK Ikea sizes but please note that if you have an Ikea bed in the UK you will not be able to purchase a mattress to fit it from IKEA in Australia.

     

    Ikea UK sizes (in metric)

    Single 90 x 200 cms

    Double 140 x 200 cms

    King 160 x 200 cms
