What size is a Queen Size Mattress?
Queen size mattresses in South Africa are 152cm in width, which is 15cm wider than a standard double bed, and they are manufactured in two different lengths:
- Standard length, which is 188cm or 1.88 metres and
- Extra length, which is 200cm or 2 metres.
This makes it an ideal choice for those who value that extra little bit of sleeping space, yet do not want to opt for the more generous size of its bigger brother, the king size mattress.
Choosing a Queen Size Mattress
Sleeping on a mattress that is too small can cause discomfort, especially if you share a bed with a partner: this could affect your sleep and therefore influence your overall sense of wellbeing. Consider the following when making your purchase choice:
- Will one or two people be sleeping on the mattress?:
To test if the mattress size is right for you, lie on your back with your elbows behind your head. Your elbows should not touch your partner or go beyond the edge of the bed.
- Consider your sleeping style:
We all have preferred positions that we sleep in. Consider this when choosing your mattress, especially if you are sharing a bed with a partner.
- The size of the room and the supporting furnishing used around the bed:
Although a queen size bed does not really take up more space in a room than a double bed, allow a minimum of 56cm clearance on the side of the mattress to move comfortably without bumping into furniture.
Queen size mattresses come with a smaller price tag than the larger king size mattresses, yet still deliver that extra space needed. At the Bed King we offer the perfect queen size mattress for your needs at a price that suits your pocket - without compromising on quality.
