I used to be a manager over a retail store in a bedding department years ago. I had no idea that there were so many different bedding sizes and dimensions.
Today I hope to share a useful guide to any of you who want to create your own bedding.
I created some info graphics that include the standard sizes in the industry. Note: sizes may vary but these seem to be the most common. Also, feel free to leave any expertise you may have in the comments or tips and tricks that you found helping while creating your own bedding.
Need to make a quilt, a duvet cover or just need measurements?! Feel free to save these images or pin to have them on hand any time you may need them!
Let's start with the twin...
Note: The Twin XL is very common in college dorms!
Here's my recent duvet - How to Make a Duvet Cover
Also, check out this fun duvet idea - Pintucked Duvet Tutorial
Now onto the most popular size...
I have a queen size bed and many times we will purchase a King quilt because I like the it to hang over quite a bit.
I also have a European Sham Tutorial that is a peace of cake if you're interested! Oh, and don't miss this amazing trick on How to Turn a King Pillow into Two throw pillows!
I'm sure there are a few dimensions I didn't cover, so please if you'd like dimensions on something not listed be sure to make a note in the comments and I'll see what I can do!
