Mattress Sizes and Dimensions Chart (See What Size is a Full & Queen Mattress)

How Big is a Full Size Mattress?

The full-size mattress is 54 inches wide and 75 inches long. Before 1950, most beds were full-size. And full mattress, also called double bed, was considered the optimal bed size for couples, so it was indeed enough to accommodate two people. But in fact, couples share a full mattress with 4,050 square inches, there is almost no space for them to sprawl, or turn around. Therefore, for the couples who like more space or don't like to hug together, we always recommend a queen-size or larger mattress. Compared with the twin mattress, the full-size mattress is 15 inches wider. It can provide enough space for single sleepers, teenagers, or adults sleeping with a child or a pet, even if they like to stretch and sprawl out. And a full mattress is a ideal choice for guest rooms that are 9 feet 6 inches by 10 feet 6 inches or bigger without sacrificing too much space of furniture. 

How Big is a Queen Size Mattress?

The queen size mattress is 60 inches wide and 80 inches long, which is larger than a full mattress. Therefore, the queen mattress is an ideal option for couples who like to have extra space when sharing their beds or for those taller than 6’. In addition, mattresses in queen size are also very common now, so its accessories are as common as those of full size. But still note that the bigger the mattress size, the higher cost it will be, and the same to their accessories. And for a queen bed, the minimum recommended room dimension is 10 feet by 10 feet, and it comfortably fits in a master room that are 12 by 12 feet.
