If you and your partner are in the market for a new mattress, you may be having serious conversations over one key point: support.
Some like their mattress firm as a board, others like it as soft as a cloud. If you and your sleeping buddy sit firmly on opposite ends of the support spectrum, you may want to consider a mattress that caters to your two different comfort levels.
This may lead you to find the split queen mattress.
Here, we’ll outline the details of a split queen mattress — often referred to as a dual queen — and explain the difference between this and a standard queen. You may find that choosing a split queen will have you and your partner catching amazing zzz’s (with no arguments) in no time.
So what is a split queen mattress? A split queen is kind of like opting for a half pepperoni, half cheese pizza when you and your partner can’t agree on what to get. A split queen bed is a dual queen mattress, consisting of two mattresses that each measure 30 inches by 80 inches. Put together, they make up a standard queen size of 60 inches by 80 inches. 1When it comes to the best bed size for couples, we believe a queen is just right. However, with a split queen, each mattress can be a different level of firmness, so you can always get what you want.
So, the two queen varieties are equal in size, just different in composition. Split queen mattresses are specially made, and when put together they will resemble a traditional queen size bed, meaning you don’t need to buy a special sheet set or comforter.
You can also purchase an adjustable split queen, which simply means the split queen sits on an adjustable bed frame, typically controlled by a remote control.
