Weekends were made for spending quality time… with your bed. No matter how many invites you get to celebrate a birthday, go out to eat, or meet up with a friend, nothing sounds as great as getting into pajamas and not moving until Monday morning.

Whether you jump into a cozy twin or a colossal California king, here’s how you can decide on weekend plans based on your mattress size.


At 39 inches wide by 75 inches long, a twin mattress is the smallest bed you can bring home. But don’t let that stop you from using it to its full potential.

Win a game of solitaire. Close call…

Play with your pet teacup pig. Or fish. Or hamster.

Finish a crossword. Sunday’s for starters. 

Twin XL

The twin’s slightly bigger cousin, the twin XL mattress is five inches longer. Every extra inch to spread out counts.

Throw a slumber party. For one. Celebrate with your favorite dinner for delivery.

Start an air hockey competition. Have each player sit at opposite ends. Grab a portable table… or the Casper’s extra cool surface will do.

Workout. Lift your pillow for 10 – 15 reps. Rest. Repeat.


Even more room for activities! The full mattress is 54 inches wide and 75 inches long. 

Hold a checkers tournament. Ready for bed? Check.

Bust out Giant Jenga. Your breakfast tray will come in handy.


The most popular mattress size in all the land, the queen mattress fits best in a master bedroom that’s at least 10 x 10 square feet.

Enjoy a picnic in bed. Springtime just means new reasons to spend time inside.

Build the ultimate pillow fort. Grab as many spare pillows as you can find. Don’t hold back!


At 76 inches wide and 80 inches long, the king mattress is large enough to accommodate couples who share the bed with a pet — like a great dane.

Go camping. All you need is a sheet tent. And Netflix. And snacks.

Play hide-and-seek. With the remote. Again.

California King

The longest mattress on the market, the California king mattress is 72 inches wide and 84 inches long.

Twister. Why not? Winner gets to stay in bed. Loser gets the couch.

Host your next Netflix episode club. Tell your friends to bring the snacks.
