Queen Size Bed Frame Dimensions

Before you buy a new bed, it is important to make sure you are considering what size and style of bed is right for you. Queen bed and frame dimensions are approximately 60 inches wide and 80 inches long. King size bed dimensions are approximately 76 inches wide and 80 inches long — about 16 inches wider than the width of a queen bed. 

Whether you are transitioning from one bed size to another in your current space or moving to a new space, it is important to consider what bed dimensions will work best in your bedroom, before you buy. Mattress size charts can be helpful in showing that each mattress has a standard size, but there is still much more to consider when deciding which bed is the best fit for your home and lifestyle.

What is the width of a Queen Bed? And the size of a Queen Size Bed Frame?

A queen bed frame is larger than a double size bed and smaller than a king size bed. A mattress on a queen size bed frame comfortably sleeps two average size adults. A standard queen mattress is 60 inches wide and 80 inches long —approximately half a foot longer and wider than a double bed, and over a foot narrower than a king bed. 

If you are purchasing a bed for one person to sleep in, there will be more than ample space in a queen sized bed. But if you are considering purchasing a bed to be shared, you may want to compare the amount of space per person that each bed size offers.

A standard twin bed is 38 inches wide and 75 inches long, so if you are sleeping solo, all 38 inches are yours to sleep in serenely. 

A standard full bed, at 54 inches wide, provides 27 inches of sleep space per person. That is a foot less space per person than a twin, if the bed is being shared by a couple, and may be less-than-ideal for taller individuals with a length of only 75 inches.

Standard king size bed dimensions are larger than the full or queen, providing 38 inches of sleep space per person, while still having the same length as a queen size bed.
