What is the Size of a Queen Mattress?

Thursday, February 7th, 2008

At Rocky Mountain Mattress we try to blog about, and post the information to the questions we hear from our customers the most. One of the questions that we hear the most frequent is – What is the Size (or actual dimensions) of a Queen Size Bed? Here is a little more insight into a Queen Mattress.

When the time comes to choose a new mattress, size options are often a key concern. The most popular mattress size in the United States is the queen mattress. Exactly what is the size of a queen mattress, though, and how does it compare to other mattress sizes?

What is the Size of a Queen Mattress?

Standard queen mattress measure about 60 inches in width by 80 inches in length. This ends up being about half a foot wider than a full mattress, and 5 inches longer. For couples, this means nearly three feet of personal space in bed. Perhaps this is why the queen mattress is the nation’s most popular and most common size. A queen mattress offers both singles and couples ample space in the bed, while not requiring the significant room space needed for a king mattress.

How Does a Queen Mattress Compare to Other Mattress Sizes?

Many people “upgrade” from a full mattress to a queen mattress, while others are often left unsure of whether or not to invest in a king mattress or a queen mattress. In terms of sheer size, the queen mattress offers 30 square inches of additional space when compared to a full mattress. Many couples find a full mattress to be a bit too snug for two people, and opt for the added room of the queen mattress.

Compared to a standard king mattress, the queen mattress is the same length as a king. However, king mattresses are 16 inches wider than a queen. While this offers additional room in bed, some people find that their bedrooms simply don’t have the space to accommodate the size of the king mattress.

Because the size of queen mattresses is standard – unlike other sizes, such as the extra-long twin or the California king – finding coverings and sheets for queen mattresses is usually quite easy.
