Sleeping partner- Do you share your bed with someone? General the queen size bed will be big enough and will offer enough space for couples but if you are someone who prefers more space then you may want to opt for a king size bed instead. If you are a couple who also shared your bed with children or pets then the king size bed will also be a better option as it will provide enough space.

Size weight and sleeping position- the weight and physical size of you and your partner will also impact the decision on whether your purchase a queen or a king size bed.

Price range- you will also need to look at your price range and budget when deciding between a queen and king size bed, a king size bed will also cost more money.

Bedroom dimensions- you will also need to measure your room to see how big of a bed your bedroom can actually accommodate and based on these measurements you can make your decision on if you are purchasing a queen or a king size bed.

Transport- a king size mattress will be a lot harder and more challenging to move around compared to a queen size mattress which won’t be as difficult.
