Ten common questions about beds, bedspreads and blankets sizes we hear at FelinFach are as follows;
To understand the answers you need to know two things, what is the size of the bed and very importantly, do you want a blanket to 'sit on top of' a bed or do you want it to drape over the sides of a bed?
We are also asked what does "drape" mean in the context of beds and blankets? Drape means the distance a blankets falls from the bed surface to the floor. Some blankets merely lie flat on the bed surface whilst other drape towards the floor or even to the floor. The difference is the size of blanket needed to drape to the floor and merely lying on the bed is large.
Look no further, see below...
3’0” x 6’3” (36 inches x 75) or 90cm x 190cm, Bedspread - 180 x 230 cms
4’6” x 6’3” (54 inches x 75) or 135cm x 190cm, Bedspread - 230 x 255 cms
5’0” x 6’6” (60 inches x 78) or 150cm x 200cm, Bedspread - 255 x 280 cm
For a blanket to drape over the sides of a bed, look at each blanket size and add at least 24 inches to the width of the blanket. This will drape approx 12 inches over the edge of a bed on each side.
There are various differing sizes of beds in Europe and North America and even within countries such as the USA.
To get the right size blanket for you bed, calculate as follows;
Sofa beds ten to be much wider than beds due to the arm rests. So make sure you only measure the mattress part of the sofa bed to get the right sized blanket
