Long Live The Queen: 5 Reasons Why You Need A Queen-Sized Bed
Finding the right mattress is the key to a good night sleep and a successful day. There’s a long list to choose from: twin, full, king or even the gigantic California king. But there’s one mattress that’s versatile enough to fit just about anywhere, but be roomy enough to accommodate just about any sleeper or sleepers. She’s the royalty of slumber; make room for the queen…mattress that is.
Here Are 5 Reasons Why A Queen-Sized Bed May Be Just Right For Yo
1. The Most Bed For Your Buck
Dollar per inch, the queen-sized bed is the most affordable. A twin bed might seem cheaper initially, but a queen bed is not that much more expensive, and you’re getting a mattress that nearly twice the size.
Most average twin mattresses run about 0.25 cents per square inch. That may not seem like a lot. It adds up to about 750 dollars, which is how much a high-end twin mattress roughly costs.
However, this Treat Queen 10″ Cushion Firm Gel Memory Foam Mattress and 5″ Low Profile StableSupport™ Foundation by Sealy is priced at only about 50 dollar more. And because this deluxe bed is a whopping 60×80 inches, it comes out to be under 0.17 cents per square inch. You’re getting way more bed for your buck.
2. It Fits In Just About Any Room
A queen-sized bed is big enough for you and your family. But you may be surprised to know, it’s also shaped ideally to fit in a bedroom as small as 10′ x 10′. And you still have plenty of room for a chest of drawers or a suitcase stand, without feeling crowded. It’s also a unexpectedly good fit, whether you have a swanky Manhattan studio or a lavish bedroom suite.
3. It Transitions With Your Family
If you buy a good quality mattress, it should last a long time. It might even last through some changes, like an addition of to the family. Your new addition might be a baby, a fur-baby, or maybe the new addition to your family is a son-in-law or daughter-in-law. Whether you’re buying new bed to accommodate your family, or gift it to your new son-in law or daughter-in-law, a queen-sized bed will fit your family’s needs for years to come.
Also, if your lifestyle slows down, you need to start elevating your feet, or you’re recovering from a setback, most memory foam and gel foam queen-sized beds are compatible with adjustable bases.
This Upbeat Queen 9″ Gel Memory Foam Mattress by Sealy is the ideal combination of comfort and accessibility. It’s made of ergonomic gel foam, so it can easily fit a conventional box spring, a stand and an adjustable base.
4. Space For You And Them To Stretch Out
You need space to sleep for you and “them”, whether “them” refers to your toddler, your partner, your husband or wife, or your fur baby. A queen sized bed is 60″x80″. To put that in perspective, that’s 5 feet across and nearly 7 feet long, which is room for two refrigerators, two grown people, three great Danes or four preschoolers. Needless to say, there’s space to stretch out.
5. It’s Easier To Move
I’ll say that again, a queen-sized bed can be moved easier than a twin, a full or a king-sized bed. How? Because, depending on the type of mattress, it can be folded (or even rolled up) to fit through any door. A queen-sized bed is balanced and evenly weighted, so it’s less unwieldy.
If you’re moving into your first place and you have a two person moving team (i.e. you and your partner), having a mattress that’s big enough for you, but also easy to move is a huge plus. On the flip side, even if you’ve hired a crew of movers and you’re upgrading, you want a bed that can fit easily into your space with the least amount of trouble.
This innovative Chime Queen Memory Foam Mattress by Signature Design by Ashley is both easy to ship and move because it’s shipped rolled up in a box. That’s right, it comes in a compact box, so all you have to do is roll it out onto your box spring or base and viola! You can also re-roll it if you’re moving. That’s right, all you’ll need is some painters’ plastic, some tape and a vacuum and you can easily move your mattress without a rented truck.
