King or Queen: What’s Best for Your Castle?

Posted on January 1, 2016

Mattress size is an extremely important consideration when purchasing a new bed. It is a matter of personal choice, room size and budget. Check out the following pros and cons to determine the proper size for your royal slumber.

QUEEN

Ideal for smaller master bedrooms, couples who prefer close quarters, guest rooms and individuals who “sprawl” while they sleep.

PROS:

  • 60" x 80"
  • Most popular mattress size
  • Less expensive than a King-sized bed
  • Arguably more choice when it comes to bed linens

CONS:

  • Less personal sleeping space (9 inches less per person than if they slept alone in a twin bed!)

KING

Ideal for couples who want maximum sleep space, family beds or if the family pet has mattress privileges.

PROS:

  • 76" x 80" (Standard or Eastern King) / 72" x 84" (California King)
  • Offers maximum personal sleeping space (18 inches more than a Queen)
  • Same as two extra-long twin beds side-by-side
  • Split box spring for greater maneuverability

CONS:

  • Too large for some bedrooms or to navigate through some hallways
  • Bed linens are more expensive than for a Queen
  • Requires 3 standard pillows or 2 King pillows
