Single Mattress Bedding for College and Small Apartments

The sizes of beds and bedding range from twin, full, queen, king to California King. Twin and single bedding is often interchangeable and are basically referring to the same size.

A single mattress is perfect for teens, children, college students and single adults living in one bedroom apartments.  A single bed mattress is big enough for one person, but small enough to give you maximum room space to move around in.  The common misconception about twin beds is that you cannot find mattresses in twin bed size.  This is not true.  You can find any mattress from box springs to memory phone in twin/single bed size.Simmons Beautyrest Cotton Blend Waterproof with Laminate Mattress Pad

The last thing you want is to have to run down to the wash room at 3 in the morning before the exam!
