So, you're on the hunt for the bed of your dreams and are trying to decide on the best mattress size for your sleep space. When determining what size mattress is best, you need to consider your own sleep needs and the space for the bed.

As the most popular mattress in the U.S., the queen mattress size is ideal for both single sleepers and couples. See why the queen mattress is a popular pick.

Benefits of the Queen Mattress Size

Clocking in at 60 inches wide and 80 inches long, the dimensions of a queen size mattress fits easily into most master bedrooms without it feeling cluttered.

Another great benefit of the queen mattress size is it works for both single sleepers and couples. The queen mattress size will give couples ample room to sleep, especially in they like to cuddle. If a couple really wants to stretch out though, we suggest they upgrade to a king.
