IKEA Mattress Sizes: A Guide To Different Bed Dimensions

   

IKEA® bed frames don’t fit normal standard dimensions exactly. However likewise a normal size bed won’t fit properly as they deviate from classic measurements. Each country has definitive name set and different mattress sizes. Some of these are the same as the Swedish retailers however with slightly different measurements. 

Take a careful look at the dimensions before buying to avoid getting the wrong size! The following picture shows mattress measurements side by side along with the common name for that mattress. Click on the next slide to see all IKEA® mattress sizes in Canada & USA:

Full size mattress: how does it compare to IKEA mattress dimensions?

You may have a bed that you want to put an IKEA sized mattress on or an IKEA mattress that you want to put on it. Either way using an online retailer is the easiest way to get something that fits and delivered to your door for free! Be careful though getting the wrong size will likely mean it won't fit.

The famous scandinavian based retailer sell mattresses that are European sized and different to normal bed proportions such as king or queen. I have given you the exact measurements but your nearest European size will fit just fine. In fact if you are anywhere in the world from Canada to Hong Kong, Singapore Australia UK you will find that IKEA have standardised their measurements to European.

Where to buy one that will fit correctly

Many shops sell IKEA sized mattresses and beds that will fit a normal IKEA mattress. These proportions are standard within E.U. countries, often referred to as 'European mattresses' or 'continental mattress sizes.' Likewise if you are buying a bed from the famous Swedish retailer you can use the chart to compare and check bed proportions against standard frame sizes.

Unique size names and corresponding standard

These are funny sizes so it's best to check the dimensions chart before you buy. If you are looking for an alternative retailer many online bed and mattress shops offer products and quite often with free next day delivery. These shops will stock the corresponding dimensions of all the IKEA brand sizing such as sultan hjelmas, sultan hamnvik, sultan huglo, sultan tafjord, sultan tjome, fjordgard, sultan tårsta. Getting memory foam mattresses is often easier as the shop can cut the foam to order.

Depending on the country you are resident in the IKEA mattress proportions may be different to your local. The thickness will depend on each model and also whether a topper is applied.

Buying a bed frame that fits

Many retailers offer IKEA sized mattresses. Some people go ahead and customise them like this:

As you can see from the above chart and mattress measurements guide, if you have an IKEA bed but a standard UK mattress then they won't fit exactly. IKEA bed measurements are made to fit the European mattresses not regular UK mattresses, that said some are very close and if you don't mind it being slightly too small to the frame then you can often get away with it. IKEA also do mattresses for extendable units, you will need to check out the individual measurement to see if they fit. Go to this page on their website to see the full range.
