Looking For a Queen Size Queen Size Mattress Set? We Can Help!

Is your mattress old? Do you feel like you’re sleeping at the bottom of the Grand Canyon or on a ridge when you’re in bed? Do you wake up sleepy, achy or moody? If any of those things sound all too familiar, it may be time for you to buy a new mattress. If you’re considering purchasing a queen size mattress set, consider these tips before buying. 

Queen Mattress Sizes

If your current mattress is a queen and you don’t want to invest in a new bed frame, you’ll want to shop for a similarly sized mattress. Before you head out to the nearest mattress store, you should know that queen mattresses actually come in three different sizes. Knowing the kind of queen mattress you need will help you avoid buying a mattress set that simply won’t work with your bed frame.

Here are the sizes that queen mattresses are sold in and the dimensions of the rooms they’re typically bought to occupy:

  • Standard Queen: 60 inches by 80 inches, rooms measuring 10 feet by 10 feet up to 10’ x 14’
  • Olympic Queen: 66 inches by 80 inches, rooms anywhere from 10’ x 10’ up to 10 feet by 14 feet
  • California Queen: 60 inches by 84 inches, rooms ranging from 12 feet by 10 feet up to 12’ x 14’

Things to Consider When Shopping for a Queen Mattress

Mattresses can vary greatly when it comes to price. Some queen size mattress sets may cost a few hundred dollars while others may cost several thousand. Regardless of how much a given mattress costs, buying a mattress requires an investment, which means you need to consider several things before you invest your hard-earned money.

Useful Life

Most mattresses will need to be replaced after seven or eight years. That rule of thumb can vary depending on the type of mattress you buy, however. Waterbeds, pillow tops, and innerspring mattresses tend to have to be replaced sooner than hybrids, memory foam and latex alternatives.


There’s a widespread misbelief that mattresses that have higher price tags are made better than their less expensive brethren. When you shop in a brick-and-mortar store, it’s possible that the retailer has marked up the mattresses it sells more than an online merchant might. If both outlets are selling the same mattress at different prices, the price clearly does not indicate that one is better than the other. The same logic also applies for mattresses made by competing brands.


Today’s queen mattresses are available in a wide variety of material types. You need to identify the material that you’ll be most comfortable with before you choose a mattress. Memory foam, innerspring, pillow tops and latex are just a few of the material types you’ll have to choose from.


The level of firmness will change from mattress to mattress. For this reason, it’s important for you to consider the level that will keep you comfortable as you sleep. Ideally, you should test a mattress by visiting a retail location. If that’s not an option, read a mattress’ online reviews and look for comments that discuss the level of firmness the mattress provides.
