What Are the Advantages of Switching to a Queen Bed?

by Judd Willis

If your old double bed is on its last legs, then you may be shopping around for a new one. While a like-for-like switch may look like a good solution here, it's also worth looking at upgrading to a bigger bed.

If you have a little extra space to play with, then a queen mattress and base could be a good way to go. What are the benefits?

Get More Space to Sleep

While a double mattress is big enough for two, you won't necessarily have had a lot of extra space in your double bed in the past. Double mattresses give you enough room for two people with a little extra wriggle-room space.

If you're both deep sleepers who don't move around much at night, then this isn't a problem. However, if one of you is a restless sleeper who moves around a lot, or if one of you is a fair bit taller or bigger than the other, then space becomes an issue that could affect your quality of sleep.

If you upgrade to a queen mattress, then you get extra width and length on the bed. You don't need a lot of extra space to fit this size of bed in a room — you're talking just a few extra inches here. However, those few inches can make a world of difference.

If you've ever found a double bed cramped, then a queen could give you the space you need to sleep more comfortably. Even if you sleep alone, the extra luxury of a larger mattress is a real boost.

Keep Some Living Space

While some people simply use their bedrooms to sleep in and store clothes, others spend more time in this room. They like to have some living space here. For example, they may put in comfortable chairs so they can use the bedroom as a quiet place to read or watch TV.

While you may hanker after a king-sized bed, this might take up too much space in your bedroom. Even if you can fit the bed in, you may not have much room left over.

A queen-sized set hits the sweet spot for you here. You get a bigger bed than you currently have. However, you don't lose as much space as you would if you went for a king-sized bed.
