Is Queen Size Mattress the most popular size ?

Queen Size bed is  153cm x 203 cm. A queen size mattress is a good fit for a couple and is easier on the pocket vs other king size and super king size beds. There is enough space on both sides making it an optimized bed selection particularly if you have as average living space area and are a small family.  15 cms more width and height than a double mattress – the queen size mattress is just the right size for a couple who prefer to be close yet not disturb each other in their sleep.

While bed size selection is a personal choice but factors like

  • Budget
  • Living Space Area
  • Family members
  • Do you spend most of the time in your bed room or lounge
