Queen vs. Split Queen: What's The Difference?




Are you in the market for a new mattress? If so, are you trying to replace it with a new size or stick to the one you have? Have you considered a Queen mattress or a Split Queen mattress ? Which one is the best mattress size for you?

First thing to know is the difference between a Queen size mattress and a Split Queen size mattress. They both measure 60 inches wide by 80 inches long. The difference is that a Queen mattress is one mattress, and a Split Queen mattress consists of two separate mattresses, 30 inches wide by 80 inches long each. So for a Queen mattress, you'll need a Queen sheet set, and for a Split Queen mattress, you'll need a Split Queen sheet set (the main difference is that the Split Queen Sheet set will have two separate fitted sheets of 30 x 80 inches).

How do you know which mattress is right for you? Let's go through it together.


What is a Queen size mattress?

A standard queen size mattress is 60 inches wide by 80 inches long. A queen size bed is great for adults who sleep alone, adults who like to cuddle with their partners, adults who sleep with a pet, or who have a mid room size bedroom.
Queen beds are the most popular ones of all mattress sizes. Every mattress company offers queen size mattresses, so it's easy to find the right one for you, whether it's spring, foam, hybrid, etc.


PROS

  • a queen size bed has enough space for individuals who sleep alone
  • a queen size bed is the most popular size mattress on the market so it's easy to find the mattress that's right for you, the perfect bed frame and bedding accessories
  • a queen size bed is easier to find than a split queen size bed

CONS

  • queen size mattresses can be a little small if you sleep with a partner, especially if you guys like to have your own space and don't like to sleep against one another

What is a Split Queen mattress?

A Split Queen mattress, also called a dual mattress consists of two mattresses that measure the same as a Queen size mattress when you put them together. So each split queen mattress measures 30 inches wide by 80 inches long, and is best for a single sleeper.

If you sleep with a partner, you might wonder why you would get a Split Queen bed over a Queen bed. Here are some things to consider in order to make the best decision for you.

Are you and your partner very different weights? How firm is your mattress? Does your mattress move when one of you two moves? Is one of you a light sleeper and wakes up when the other one moves? Do you like to cuddle or do you prefer your own space when you're sleeping?

These are all very good questions to ask yourself when deciding whether a Queen or a Split Queen bed is right for you!


PROS

  • if you sleep with a partner, you won't have to worry about the mattress moving when your partner moves
  • if you like your own space, you'll have more sleeping space with a split queen since the mattresses are separate
  • if you're a light sleeper, you'll be less likely to be woken up by your partner's sleeping movements
  • if you move a lot, a split queen is easier to carry than a queen bed.


CONS

  • if you sleep with a partner, it's harder to cuddle than on a queen size bed
  • split queen mattresses are harder to find than regular queen size mattresses
  • split queen mattresses cost more money than queen size mattresses

Other Mattress Sizes:

Depending on your space, budget, and whether you sleep alone or with someone, you might want to consider different size beds. Here are mattress dimensions / mattress measurements that might be useful for you to know about:


Twin

A twin size mattress (also called a single bed) is 38 x 75 inches. They're the smallest standard bed size. They're great for kids. If your kids share a room, getting a bunk bed for them can be a great option! Bunk beds are two beds stacked on top of each other. They are functional if your kids sleep together, because it takes less space in a room than two beds side by side. The size of a Standard, Single or Twin bunk bed is 75 inches x 39 inches x 65 inches. So you'll want to use a twin mattress to fit onto the bunk twin bed.


Twin XL

A twin xl mattress is 38 x 80 inches. They have an additional 5 inches in length compared to a regular twin, so it's a great option when your kid is a bit older and growing too tall for a Twin size bed. A twin xl mattress can also be a good option for a teenager.

*Note that twin sheets and twin xl sheets are the same. Whether you have a regular twin size bed or a twin xl bed, you'll want to get twin xl sheets.


Full

A Full size mattress (also called double bed) is 54 x 75 inches. A full size is better for a teenager who moves around; however, it is shorter than a Twin Xl so it's not as good for a tall person. Both options are great for smaller spaces such as studios or small one bedroom.


King

A King size mattress is 76 x 80 inches. A king size bed is great for couples who move around a lot, who like more space in bed, and who have kids or pets who take up space. King size beds are suitable for families.


California King

A California King mattress (also called Cal King) is 72 x 84 inches - 4 inches narrower than a regular King, but 4 inches longer. So if you're more than 6 feet tall, or you share a bed with a taller person, you might want to consider a Cal King bed.


Split King

A Split King mattress has two Twin XL mattresses (38 x 80 inches). 


Split Cal King

There's also Split Cal King mattresses. Split California Kings are (also called Split Cal King) two Twin XXL mattresses (36 x 84 inches).

We at Overstocksheetclub.com offer sheet sets for all bedding sizes, including Twin XL, Full, Queen, Split Queen, Split Top Queen, King, Cal King, Wyoming King, Split King, Split Cal King, Split Top Queen, and Split Top King.
