Why buy a Queen instead of a Full Mattress?

This is a question many shoppers ask when they are searching for a new mattress.

The difference in size between queen and full mattresses does not seem like much. Since a full is less expensive, why shouldn't you settle for that? The answer is that it all comes down to comfort versus space and budget. Bare in mind that most headboards these days are queen/full hybrids. This means that the same headboard will work on either size. You just use whichever of the two mounting brackets that you need. If you are setting up a guest room, generally, a full size mattress set will fit the need.

Because guest or secondary bedrooms are smaller. Full size mattresses take up less square footage. This allows you to dress the room with a chest, dresser, nightstand or two that might not fit if you get the queen. However, if the room allows it, a queen makes a better sleeping surface for two people. Queens run 6 inches wider and 6 inches longer than a full.

If you have taller sleepers or people that wish to spread out more, queen is your choice. Those 6 inches provide 3 square feet of additional sleeping area. As previously noted, you can usually use the same headboard, so spending a bit more (usually only $50 to $150 dollars) can make a world of difference to sleepers. A queen and a full of the same model should sleep and feel exactly the same as far as the comfort of the mattress is concerned. Don't be concerned if the store only displays one size in that model. Size should be the only difference.

Bottom line is to get as much mattress as you can to fit your specific needs.
