King vs. Queen Mattress: Which Is Better?

When shopping for a new mattress you have to take many things into consideration.  Before you even begin to narrow mattresses down by comfort or price, you should have an idea of what size you want.  Most adults choose between a king mattress or a queen mattress for their bedroom. How can you decide between the two? We don’t think that one size is the clear winner here — both king and queen mattresses are good options and the decision will ultimately come down to which one fits your personal situation best. Here are some thoughts we had that might be helpful if you are deciding between a king mattress and a queen mattress:

Most adults choose between a king mattress or a queen mattress for their bedroom

King Mattress

  • More space for sleeping and great if you have kids that climb in with you in the middle of the night
  • Takes up a lot of space in a bedroom which can be a positive or negative depending on how much space is available

Queen Mattress

  • Better if you are short on space in a bedroom but still want space in your bed
  • More affordable than a king-sized mattress
  • Easy to move (from room to room or in a moving truck to a new house)
