Which Is Bigger A King Or Queen Size Bed Mattress?

Which Is Bigger A King Or Queen Size Bed Mattress? The King size bed is bigger than the Queen size bed. The king measures 76 inches wide and 80 inches long and the queen measures 60 inches wide and 80 inches long. As you can see this gives king-size mattress owners an extra 16 inches of additional sleeping space. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but it usually means the difference between getting comfortable or not getting a good night of sleep.

Even though the king mattress is bigger the queen is the more popular mattress size and outsells the queen size as much as 3 to 1. One of the biggest reasons for this is that a king-size mattress costs more. Secondly, most bedrooms will not accommodate the larger king-size mattress along with a bedroom full of furniture. Steel bed frames, sheets, and mattress pads usually cost more in the king as well.

Note: You can learn more about how you can use a split box spring for your queen mattress.

On the other hand, even with all of the extra expense incurred buying a king-size bed, these owners are usually the happiest with their purchase in the end. The main reason is that each person on the king-size mattress has the equivalent of 2 twin extra long mattresses to sleep on. That is one bed for each person. Queen mattress owners are getting the equivalent of a 28″ x 52″ baby crib mattress. That is the sleeping space for the typical infant or baby.
