Detailed Mattress Comparison Chart: Queen vs. King Size

See, width is the key difference between a king and queen size mattress. Couples are typically more suitable to a king mattress, unless their master bedroom is smaller than 12 feet by 12 feet, which cannot provide the necessary space for other furniture. The queen mattress is more popular for singles or couples that don't need a lot of sleeping space, because it can save more bedroom space and the cost of buying mattress, bed frames or accessories. With this chart, it should be known that there is a lot to think about before deciding between king and queen size. Please read on.

Things to Consider: Which Size is Better for you?

Both king and queen mattresses are great choices for couples and families. But there are several things to consider for a perfect purchase:

Sleeping Partner:

If you sleep alone, the queen mattress can undoubtedly provide you with enough sleeping space. However, if you are sharing a bed with others, you need to consider whether your partner loves to stretch or sprawl out, or whether you need to share a bed with your kids or pets frequently. If the answer is yes, a king size mattress will be the best choice for you and your sleep partner(s).


What is your budget for a new mattress? In Novilla, the king size is always 70-110 dollars more expensive than the queen for its extra width. In addition, although both sizes of mattresses are very common, the bedding essentials, such as bed frames, adjustable bases, and related accessories, tend to be more expensive for the king mattress than for the queen. Therefore, if you have a tight budget, a queen mattress may be a better choice.

Bedroom Dimension:

How big is your room? It is necessary to measure the room dimensions before buying a new mattress. We generally recommend that a king-size mattress fits in a room at least 12 feet x 12 feet, and a queen, at least 10 feet x 10 feet. A king is 16 inches wider than a queen, and it requires more extra space for any other furniture such as wardrobes, dressers, chests of drawers, nightstands, and even ottomans. But if you and your partner feel that a queen is not suitable enough, you may have to compromise on the further furniture to pick a king.

Anyway, both king and queen mattresses are available in Novilla. You may click here to browse and pick a right mattress, which will ensure you a sweet sleep.
