The queen-size mattress is by far the most popular size mattress in the world for adults, as it's nearly a perfect fit for most people. It's neither too big nor too tiny, so it can appeal to almost anyone. Additionally, due to its popularity, you can accessorise the queen mattress and bed set with the widest variety of duvets, linens, and comforters.
What Size is a Queen Mattress?
Queen-size mattresses are designed to fit queen-size bed bases and can typically fit one, two, or even three persons on a single mattress, making them ideal for master bedrooms and guest rooms. Regarding actual dimensions, queen mattresses measure 1530mm x 2030mm.
How Thick are Queen Mattresses?
In terms of thickness, or depth, there's no standard mattress thickness associated with queen or any other mattress size. Instead, the thickness varies based on comfort and the materials used in the mattress's construction, especially if the mattress has a pillow top.
Types of Queen Mattresses
Queen-size mattresses are categorised by their construction type as memory foam mattresses, innerspring mattresses, and gel mattresses. It's important to note that the inner construction directly correlates with the queen mattress' thickness.
Memory Foam Mattresses
Memory foam mattresses are made of high-density foam that contours to the body in response to heat and pressure, providing a comfortable and evenly distributed support. They are soft to the touch and have high energy absorbency.
Once the pressure is removed, memory foam mattresses slowly return to their original shape. Due to their conforming properties, these mattresses are a really good option for individuals with back pain, as they support the natural curve of the spine.
Innerspring mattresses are a type of mattress that uses a system of Bonnell springs or pocket springs combined with a metal wire frame to provide support. They may be covered with foam layers or fabric with cushioning material. Innerspring mattresses, including pocket spring mattresses, are known for their durability and breathability due to increased airflow. Some innerspring mattresses also have hybrid designs with multiple layers of foam of varying densities.
Our innerspring mattresses offer good value and support, and our pocket spring mattresses are designed to contour to the body and support all body shapes. We also offer mattresses with dual springs that enhance support and performance based on the customer's body type. Our pocket springs are zoned for added support, and we use foam encasement to increase the surface area and strengthen the edges of our mattresses.
How Heavy are Queen Mattresses?
Modern mattresses are heavier than your grandma's queen mattress, as they're made of thicker, denser comfort layers backed up by different hypoallergenic and support technologies. Queen-sized mattresses can vary in weight, with some weighing as little as 17kg and others weighing as much as 70kg. The weight difference is often due to denser and thicker layers in the construction of the mattress.
However, this added weight provides more support for a good night's sleep. Generally speaking, memory foam mattresses (including the gel-infused varieties) often weigh the most. Also, please remember that despite popular belief, mattresses don't double in weight after ten years.
Is a Queen Mattress Bigger Than a Full-Size Mattress?
Yes, queen mattresses are bigger than Double-size mattresses, whose measurements are 1380mm x 1880mm. That's nearly 154mm smaller in length- and widthwise. These mattresses are smaller than King ones by approximately 100-120mm.
In Australia, which has narrower bed size standards, a Queen bed mattress sits in between a double bed mattress and a king-size mattress, which measures 1830mm x 2030mm. In other words, it's nearly 300mm wider than the queen mattress. The largest among these is a super-king mattress, which measures 2030mm x 2030mm (nearly the size of two king singles).
How Many People Fit On a Queen Size Mattress?
Queen-size mattresses are designed for single individuals or couples, so the number of people that can comfortably sleep on a queen-size mattress is two. With that said, it's not uncommon for young couples to let a small child share the bed with them.
In some situations, a queen-size mattress can actually fit three small children if your little ones like throwing sleepovers.
How Much Does a Queen Size Mattress Cost?
The price of queen-size mattresses mostly depends on quality and construction, as well as the softness of the particular mattress. Generally speaking, the more features a particular mattress has, the higher the quality equals a higher price point. However, you can rest assured that OMF always works to keep our prices as low as possible.
