Size of a Queen Bed – Queen beds is one of the most popular sizes around due to their versatility. They are the exit to the size when a double bed is too small and a king is too big. The length of a bed structure is slightly larger than the queen size mattress. That is usually 80 inches and enough to comfortably support one or two adults of medium height.
The width of a bed frame, like the length, is slightly wider than the mattress’ width of 60 inches. The frame of the double bed has central support, in addition to the frame itself. In some frames, the central support also has two additional legs. This type of bed structure is the best option for couples. As it gives each space enough without taking up too much space. The main styles of double bed frames are the hook-in-queen, queen-screwed and Hollywood box spring.
A standard queen mattress is 60 inches wide, offering each sleeper 30 inches of individual sleeping space, which is approximately two-thirds of the space offered by a double bed alone. The “Olympic Queen” mattress is a slightly larger variation that measures 66 inches in diameter or 33 inches of personal space per occupant.
