What size is Queen Size?

The Queen size bed is such a difficult bed name and can be many different sizes.


A Small Double 4ft / Three Quarter bed is often referred to as a Queen, whilst a standard UK 5ft King Size bed is regularly sold as a Queen Size.

American Queen size beds measure 60" wide x 80" long and a UK King size bed measures 60" wide x 79" long. So UK King bedding will work fine on an American Queen, as the Queen is only 1" (2.5cm) longer.  And just to confuse matters, a Euro Ikea King 160 x 200cm is often also called a Queen.
