    4 reasons that bed sizes matter

    17 Percent share of mattress purchases for twin-sized bedding. Why it matters: Because size matters. It’s a matter of dollars and cents. Our Consumer Buying Trends Survey asked consumers what bed sizes they purchased and how much they spent on their beds. As we all know, prices go up (generally speaking) as beds get larger. The median amount of money spent on a twin-sized mattress, our survey found, was $225. Keep that price in mind as we go through the rest of our survey data. 17 Percent share of mattress purchases for full-sized bedding. Why it matters: Full-sized mattresses ...
