A short guide to Queen sized beds

Before we start explaining what a Queen-sized bed is, we thought it would be best to mention that a Queen-sized bed doesn’t actually exist at Bed Guru!

The term ‘Queen sized bed’ came from America as the US has much bigger beds than we do here in the UK. As the US has bigger beds, they needed to manufacture a slightly bigger size than our king-sized beds here in the UK and it only made sense this should be called a Queen. So, the US Queen sized bed dimension is equivalent to the UK King sized bed.

Like most bed and mattresses providers in the UK, even though we don’t stock Queen sized beds at Bed Guru, you might see the term ‘Queen-sized bed’ floating around in your search engines when trying to find the perfect sized mattress and bed, and this is sometimes because small double beds are referred to as queen size beds. So, because understanding what a queen sized bed is can be confusing, we thought we’d clear things up and explain exactly what a Queen-sized bed is!

What dimensions does a queen-sized bed and mattress have?

In the UK:

In metric dimensions, a Queen-sized bed and mattress in the UK is 120cm wide and 190cm long. This is equal to 4 feet wide and 6 feet 3 inches long. They’re most suited to one person but can accommodate two adults if necessary. If your bedroom is smaller than average, Queen sized beds in the UK are ideal, especially if you choose a divan or ottoman base which maximises storage.

Custom Queen-sized beds

At Bed Guru we can create bespoke bed frames, divan bases and mattresses made to order for unique spaces and for those who wants a very specific bed dimension for their height.

So, even though we technically don’t sell bed frames, divan or mattresses with queen-sized bed dimensions, you can get one by using our custom size bed service.  

To get you started on your custom-made bed journey, you will need to introduce us to your challenge, and tell us the exact measurements that you need. If you need help measuring your bed frame or bedroom, you can read our useful measuring guide.

Once we know the sizes, we can help you choose and give you a quote and plan to get your new bed in and your old bed out. Then, we will arrange a delivery date, and our two-person team will pop your new bed in your bedroom ad take the packaging away.

So, if you have been dreaming of your own custom-sized bed, whether that be a Queen-sized bed or something more tailored, you can be sure that Bed Guru can create the bed best for you and your home.
