What Size Is My Bed?
If you're unsure, the first thing to do is measure your bed. In Australia, our bed sizes are unique and different from places like New Zealand, Europe or America. The most typical size for an Australian household is a Queen mattress - it comfortably sleeps one to two people.
Bed Sheet Sizes
Below are the standard bed sheet sizes in Australia.
|Bed Sheet Size||Fitted Sheet||Flat Sheet|
||L 190cm x W 91cm x D 40cm||L 260cm x W 195cm|
|King Single||L 203cm x W 91cm x D 40cm||L 260cm x W 210cm|
|Double||L 203cm x W 107cm x D 40cm||L 260cm x W 240cm|

But wait, bed sheet size isn't the only thing that's important. Whether you prefer flat or fitted sheets, we have what you're looking for.
Unlike other fitted sheets that only have 30cm of fabric, our 45 cm deep sheets allow for extra fabric to stay snug under your mattress. With thick ribbed elastic on all edges, you never have to worry about the sheet riding up in the middle of the night.
With a double layer top edge, our flat sheets will make your bed look great without all the fuss. Plus, you'll feel like you're sleeping in a hotel every single night!

Something that's certain now? Dimensions aren't the only factor that counts in bed. Obviously, you desire to make sure your bed sheet, quilt cover and pillowcase sizes are just right. But here are a few other details to consider for an excellent night's sleep.
- Make sure your fitted sheets are deep enough and have thick enough elastic to snugly hug your mattress (instead of riding up).
- Keep your bed looking neat and tidy by choosing the correct-sized flat sheets.
- If you have a queen-sized bed, opt for a king-size quilt cover instead.
- If you're tired of struggling with difficult buttons, try a quilt cover with an invisible zip.
- Use a pillowcase with a deep enough fold to keep your pillow in place.
