Good quality sleep is important for your health and wellbeing. A third of your life is spent in bed, and sleep plays a major role in restoring and rejuvenating your body.

If you are suffering from lack of sleep or poor quality slumber then one of the first things to think about is your mattress.

Did you know that one of the big questions you need to ask about your mattress is, ‘Does my mattress fit me?’ Yes, mattress size plays a key role in improving the quality of your sleep. Don’t make the mistake of buying a mattress that is too small for you.

In this article, you will find out about queen size mattresses.

Contrary to popular opinion, a queen size mattress is not always the right size for a couple.

Upgrading to the right mattress

When choosing the right sized mattress for you, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Will you share your bed?
  2. What is the height and weight of the person who you are sharing with?
  3. Do you have kids who like to cuddle up and sleep in your bed?
  4. Do you share your bed with a fur baby? Is your fur baby a Great Dane?
  5. Do you work in bed and need space for paperwork and a laptop?

Queen size benefits

A queen-sized mattress is a good choice for average-sized couples and individuals who like a roomy bed. This size is also good for smaller spaces and people wanting to maximise the living space in their bedroom.

King size benefits

Super king or king sizes, are ideal for couples as these beds provide ample room to spread out. The super king mattress range is 21cm bigger than a king mattress making it ideal for couples where at least one is taller or broader. Also this mattress is ideal for families who love that extra snuggle time as there is room for everyone.
