To get the right size blanket for you bed, calculate as follows;

  • measure the top of the bed or and the depth of your mattress
  • if you want to drape your blanket, add the depth of the mattress to the top of the bed measurements and add 24 inches to the width of the blanket
  • if you don’t want the blanket to drape, simply measure the top of the bed or mattress and get a blanket with the nearest measurements to this

Sofa Beds

Sofa beds tend 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
