You are just so tired (literally) from tossing and turning every night. No matter how you lie, it feels like your mattress is out to get you. You know what we’re talking about, yes? That is why you are looking at queen size mattresses for sale online, isn’t it? Or maybe you just want to upgrade to a new mattress. Either way, your search is nearly over. In this article, The Mattress Warehouse’s mattress experts put together a short guide on queen size mattresses. We cover the basics, like size and setting. Then for a quick comparison between queen and king size, followed by a couple of queen mattress reviews (so that you can rest assured in your choice). Go on, keep reading.

What is a queen size bed or mattress?

It is a mattress or bed with very specific dimensions. In South Africa, a regular queen size mattress is 188 cm in length and 152 cm wide. Moreover, you also get extra-long, or XL queen mattresses. These are 200 cm long and also 152 cm wide. If you are tall and your feet always hang off the bottom end of the bed, then you should seriously consider getting an XL mattress. The thickness or depth of these mattresses are not standardised and may vary from brand to brand. Queen size mattresses are great for:

  • Couples who prefer a bit more sleeping space
  • Heavy-set people
  • People who’s pets share their bed
  • Those who have babies/small children that share their bed from time to time

Will a queen size mattress fit in my room?

When you are looking for a queen mattress for sale, ask yourself if the mattress or bed will actually fit in your room. There is no point in buying a bed that is too big for your bedroom. Therefore, measure your room before you make your new mattress selection. If you want to buy a queen size mattress, we recommend that the floor area in your bedroom is 3×3 m.

Seeing as you are browsing for mattresses for sale, you are probably wondering about king size mattresses as well, right?
