A queen bed is wider than a double and offers a great night’s sleep for two people sharing a bed. It’s a great option for most people, especially couples who snuggle up next to each other at night.
How big is a queen sized bed?
A queen mattress measures 152 cm x 188 cm. This mattress is well suited for a main bedroom or second bedroom in your home. It provides enough space for two people to sleep comfortably side by side. In fact, in a household where pets and small children occasionally climb into the bed, a bed this size bed can accommodate the whole family.
Considerations when choosing the right mattress size for you.
Think about the proportions of your room. If you have a larger room, opt for a larger mattress that looks in proportion to the room. Big bedrooms should have a queen sized bed, where a smaller room suits a double, three quarter or single bed.
Also consider who will be sharing the bed. A queen bed is normally used by couples. If you sleep next to a restless sleeper who’s constantly keeping you awake, you could look at putting two single beds next to each other as an alternative.
How much does a queen sized bed cost?
Queen beds vary in price depending on the brand you choose and the level of comfort you are looking for.
Premium brands usually offer greater comfort, but you will pay more for the mattress. You can expect a new mattress to last a number of years – more cost effective beds will last three to five years, while expensive mattresses will last for between five and eight years. When buying a mattress consider that you’ll be spending a lot of time on your bed, and that a good night’s sleep is vital to your health.
