How Big Is a Queen Bed?


Beds come in many sizes from twin, which is suitable for one person, all the way up to California king, which can comfortably hold a couple plus kids or pets. A queen bed consists of a mattress that sits on top of the box spring, which may be held above the floor by a bed frame.


  • A queen bed is 60 inches wide by 80 inches long.


  • A queen bed is bigger than a full or double bed but smaller than a king bed. According to the Better Sleep Council, queen beds are the most popular size.

Personal Space

  • A queen bed offers 20 inches of space for each adult sleeping in it, which is still less personal space than if each person slept in a twin bed.

Rotate Your Mattress

  • A queen mattress must be rotated every two weeks for the first two months and then once every three months after that.

Rotating Method

  • According to "Good Housekeeping," rotate your mattress by flipping it over. Then, turn it clockwise until the foot is at the head and vice-versa.
