A queen size bed is ideal for sleeping alone, with someone, or even for the occasions that more than two people need to share a space. These beds come in a multitude of varieties, from waterbeds to pillow top mattresses to standard mattresses and a simple queen bed frame. Rather than being uncomfortable and limited with a smaller size bed, owning a queen size bed is a winning solution.
Slightly smaller than a King, a queen bed offers adequate space for multiple people, and just the right amount of space for those that are “active” sleepers and move around while dozing. This size bed ensures that under most normal circumstances, the average person will not have to worry about falling off the edge of the mattress, or having body parts hang over the sides of the bed at night. Having a larger mattress space also helps people keep the mattress “new” for longer. More sleeping area will reduce the need to flip the mattress as much by making it easier to find new sleeping areas without being confined to the same ones which causes a permanent indentation to form in the mattress less quickly.
Having a queen bed is also a great way to provide a good deal of under bed storage space. Shoe boxes, plastic containers, and folded blankets of many different shapes and sizes can be pushed and stacked under these frames. This can lead to much reduction in the amount of clutter in closets and storage chests, and is a good way for people to keep things that they don't need out at all times close at hand. Utilizing this extra space in this way will also help the bed move around less, especially if the frame is on wheels or on a surface that lacks carpet. A queen size bed frame may take up more space in a room than a smaller bed, but it does not mean that the space is lost; it can be used in other ways with a bit of creative thinking. Cord concealment and room division are only some of the viable options.
A queen bed can be as extravagant – or as simple – as the owner chooses. A larger sleeping area means that the head and foot boards on the bed can be larger and more intricate. Alternatively, space can be saved by choosing to simply use the queen size bed frame, mattress, and box spring without an extending addition. High or low, a queen size bed is as customizable as the paint and other bedroom décor, and the options are limitless for those that take the time to examine multiple angles.
Having a bed so large is not for everyone, but it is the right option for those that have the available space. People spend the majority of their lives in bed, and allowing for an indulgence like a comfortable, personalized queen size bed frame and mattress is a positive way for people to enjoy this time. Couches, carpet, and appliances can be purchased for strictly aesthetic purposes, choosing a comfortable, size appropriate, and lasting bed is a decision that should be carefully considered. People should feel most comfortable when they are resting, and a queen size bed is a great way to ensure that this is the case.
