What is a queen-size bed?

Queen-size beds sound big and luxurious. Perfect for a queen, right? Or is it not all that bad and can be even bigger? How big is a queen-size bed anyway? And can you easily find a nice mattress and suitable bedding for it?

What is a queen-size bed?

For those for whom a standard double bed is not enough, there is a larger variant, the queen-size bed. Always boss over boss of course, the king is above the queen, so the very largest bed is called a king size bed. In America, both terms are very common, while in the UK and Ireland, a queen-size bed is also simply called a king-size bed. Handy if you see a nice duvet cover there and converting from inches to centimeters is too much of a hassle for you. By the way, it could very well be that you already have a queen-size bed but had labeled it as just a double bed. Because fair’s fair, nice and roomy it is. And if your bedroom is big enough, why not do it?

Where did the term queen-size bed come from?

The term queen-size bed comes from America. There, everything is bigger, including beds. A larger-than-standard bed is also ideally suited to the slightly larger person, especially in width. Of course, that’s a bit insulting and doesn’t sell very well. Besides, a large bed is only appropriate in a large bedroom, which is a sign of luxury. The terms queen size and king size were so quickly born. Because regardless of the size of the person sleeping in it, these beds are so spacious and comfortable that you may feel like a king(s) in them.

The components of queen-size beds

Queen-size bed frame

The bed frame of a queen size is naturally larger than that of a normal double bed. These are 140 by 200 centimeters. As a matter of fact, the length can vary between 190 and 220 centimeters. The length of a queen size bed frame can also vary a little from the standard, but the most common is two meters. The width of the queen size bed frame is 160 centimeters. Apart from the size, the bed frame is often just a little firmer. After all, it needs a heavier mattress and may accommodate heavier people.

Mattress

Because the bed is larger, of course a standard mattress will not fit in it. Fortunately, a queen-size mattress is also a very common size, both in length and width.

Difference between a Dutch and an American format

The original dimensions of a queen-size bed are 80 inches long and 60 inches wide. Converted to centimeters, that works out to a length of 203 centimeters and a width of 152 centimeters. Dutch beds have a length of 190, 200, 210 or 220 centimeters, so a queen-size bed too. Although we give up a few centimeters on the American size on the length, we do not do so on the width. That is because it is 160 centimeters.
