A queen-size bed costs a little more than a standard double to buy. It’s true, there is a significant difference in the price of a single and a queen mattress, but it is worth every penny. Many people feel that spending money on something as basic as a double bed isn’t going to make much difference in your comfort levels. If you have been thinking about making the switch to king-size but were unsure if it was for you, then here are reasons why you should opt for a queen instead:
1) More room to move around
There’s nothing worse than having to share a single bed with someone where you are constantly on the verge of falling out. This is especially true if one person likes sleeping on their side of the bed while the other prefers sleeping on their front. However, queen sized beds provide plenty of room, so there’s no danger of being pushed out or losing your side.
2) You can have different duvet covers
Here at Bedstar, we know that everyone has different tastes, which applies to people’s bedrooms. That’s why our online platform allows customers to buy mattress sets that are suitable for every lifestyle. For example, you might want to have different bedding sets for summer and winter. If you are lucky enough, who says you can’t even change them according to your mood?
3) You will have the best sleep ever
Do you find that you constantly wake up in the middle of the night, even though you feel utterly exhausted? This is because your bed is too small. A queen-size bed provides much more space, so there’s no chance of tossing and turning during the night. When you are constantly on the edge of a single bed, it means that there isn’t enough support for your spine and joints, which causes all sorts of problems (such as poor posture).
4) It’s economical too.
Once you’ve bought a double bed, what happens to it after 5 years when you decide to upgrade it? If, like most people, then the chances are that it would end up in a landfill. Double mattresses take up a lot of space, so they are rarely donated to charity. This means that the only way for you to get rid of it is by throwing it out, which just seems wasteful, especially when someone else could benefit from it on queen size beds.
5) Queen mattresses last longer than single ones
There’s nothing worse than buying something expensive and then having to replace it after 3 months due to wear and tear. Queen size bed sets cost more money because the materials used are of higher quality. The result is far fewer problems over time (not forgetting about increased longevity). Would you rather spend less now but have to pay even more in the future or spend more now but save money in the run?
6) It’s easier to clean
If you have children or pets, then this is especially important for you. Suppose your kids come back from school with grubby hands and all sorts of dirt on their shoes? And what about having a four-legged friend who loves getting muddy on long walks? These are just some of the challenges that bedtime brings, but luckily queen beds are easier to wash, which means no more sleepless nights.
7) It saves money in the future
Just like cars depreciate rapidly the moment they are driven off the forecourt, so does furniture. A double mattress set will lose around 35% of its value after 12 months, which means it is not worth very much by the time one year has passed. Remember this next time you go to somebody’s house and inspect their new mattress.
When was the last time you bought something that increased in value every year? Most people would never say, which is why they think it makes more sense to buy a queen size bed instead of wasting money on replacing their old ones.
