Posted by Luxo Living on 5/6/2024

Are you looking for a new queen-size bed? Picking out the right mattress size for your bedframe is crucial to ensuring a great fit and a good night's sleep. All beds and mattresses have specific dimensions that make them unique from each other and can impact your room and sleeping space greatly.

If you want undisturbed sleep, understanding Australian bed sizes is crucial. In Australia, queen bed sizes typically measure 153 cm wide and 203 cm long (1.53m x 2.03m), offering a comfortable and spacious sleeping area for couples or individuals. For those who have an Australian queen-size mattress or are looking to buy one, read this blog to learn everything you need to know.

What are the Dimensions of a Queen Size Bed?

A queen-size mattress and bed frame measures 153 cm x 203 cm, a full 30cm shorter in width than the king-size mattress. Despite this, the queen-size mattress is only a little bit smaller than the king-size mattress and is ideal for a luxury guest room.

Queen mattresses are not just available in one form, a queen mattress is also available as a split queen. A split queen refers to two mattresses that when combined, measure the same dimensions as a standard Australian queen-size mattress.

What to Consider When Mattress Shopping

There are lots of things to consider when shopping for a brand-new mattress. Whether or not you're sold on a brand new queen-size mattress or want to take some time to pick out the perfect fit, understanding what contributes to a great bedroom can make your life so much better.

Are you trying to make more bedroom space for storage or other furniture? Do you have young children that need rooms with more than one bed? Are you trying to set up or stylise your guest rooms? What kind of room you have and its intended function is the most important thing to consider when buying a new mattress or bed frame.

Make sure to measure out the length and width of any room you’re shopping for before settling on a new bed frame and mattress. If you struggle to picture how your new mattress will fit, you can mark out where it will fit in your room before purchase to help visualise it.

Understanding the Difference

Australian bed sizes vary to suit different needs and preferences. Here are the standard bed sizes:

  • Single Dimensions: A single mattress measures 92 cm wide x 188 cm long. Ideal for children or solo sleepers in smaller rooms.
  • King Single Dimensions: 107 cm wide x 203 cm long. With long single bed dimensions, the king single mattress provides extra length and width compared to a single bed, suitable for taller individuals or teenagers.
  • Double Bed Dimensions: The double mattress measures 138 cm wide x 188 cm long. Double mattresses offers more space for a single sleeper or can accommodate two smaller adults.
  • Queen Bed Dimensions: The queen mattress measures 153 cm wide x 203 cm long. The most popular size, queen-size beds are perfect for couples providing enough space without taking up too much room.
  • King Size Bed Dimensions: The king mattress sits at 183 cm wide x 203 cm long. Offers plenty of room for couples who prefer extra space or those with pets sharing the bed.
  • Super King Dimensions: The super king-size mattress is 203 cm wide x 203 cm long. The largest standard size, the super king bed provides maximum space and comfort for couples and families.

Each size caters to different needs, from solo sleepers to couples, ensuring there’s a perfect fit for every bedroom and lifestyle.
