Queen Vs. Full: Which Mattress Should You Choose?
The firmness level, types of materials used, and other features like whether personal adjustments are possible are some of the main factors that people consider when shopping for a new mattress. But of course, size does matter, too. Every sleeper’s needs and preferences are different and it’s worth your time to discuss the various advantages and drawbacks with a Sleep Specialist at Mattress World Northwest before choosing between a queen-size mattress and a full-size mattress.
Evaluating the mattress size you need
For some people, the decision of whether to get a queen or a full mattress is an easy one to make. If two people will be sharing the bed, then a queen-sized or larger mattress is a definite must. Two people could theoretically share a full size, but space would be cramped and sleep might prove difficult. Even if you’re single, you might still prefer a larger mattress if you’re the parent of a toddler who likes to climb into mommy or daddy’s bed for reassurance. A queen-sized mattress will give your family the space needed to sleep in comfort.
Consider your sleeping habits
In addition to considering your family size, think about your typical sleeping habits before selecting the right size of mattress for you. Even if you’re a solo sleeper, you might still benefit from choosing a queen-sized mattress if you have restless legs syndrome (RLS) or you tend to move around a lot during sleep. For active sleepers, a full-sized mattress might feel a little too small for comfort. On the other hand, if you’re a solo sleeper who typically sleeps like a rock, then a full-sized might be all you need to get some great Zzz’s.
Using your space wisely
Your bedroom size will be a significant factor in determining whether you should get a queen or a full. If you have a large master suite, then putting a full-sized mattress in it might seem counterintuitive. On the other hand, full-sized beds are perfect for smaller spaces. Before selecting a mattress and bed frame, get out your tape measure and measure the space where you plan on placing your bed. The typical queen is 60 inches in width and 80 inches in length. The typical full-sized mattress is 54 inches wide and 75 inches long. Add some extra inches to these measurements to accommodate the bed frame.
