We currently have a queen size bed, but I plan on getting a new bedroom set and was thinking of getting a king bed instead. 16″ doesnt sound like that much, but when I picture it, I think it’ll feel like a lot of space. We don’t acutally need the space (I was still in a twin before moving in with FI!), but our bedroom is definiately big enough. Only other problem is that everything seems so much more expensive for king size. Is it worth it?

A king size bed is the equivalent of two twin beds, so you really do each have your own space. We will definitely be upgrading to a king when we get a permanent place.

We’ve got a King, and honestly not sure what we’d do without it. Anytime we have to sleep in a queen or full it feels so little!

I have a king (yup…literally 2 twins pushed together with one of those foam things in the gap b/t them) and I looooooooooooove it. But a queen is just as cozy, and you’re right, king mattresses and accessories are always way more pricey!

We’re both sick right now…. I am so thankful we have a king and have space!

I love our king sized bed. It is perfect for us. Hubby is a big guy and we need the space.

I think a king size bed is perfect!

We have a queen but have slept in a king before and there’s a huge difference! I can’t wait until we get a house and finally get a king bed.

We have queens and will be upgrading to a King or California King when we buy a house. Can’t wait! We’ve stayed in hotel rooms with King beds and its a world of difference for us.

I always think I like king beds, but when we stay in hotel rooms in one, I just end up getting cold, because we’re too far away from each other!
Right now we sleep in a full size bed, and while I like being close for cuddling, I often wish we had a queen for those extra 6 inches! But I’m rather attached to the headboard and bed frame I made, so we haven’t upgraded yet. I voted queen, because it’s as big as I think we’d go for ourselves. Just because you never know if you’ll have to move somewhere with a smaller master bedroom in the future, that you might not have room for a king in.

Neither Fiance nor I is especially big, and we both do like to cuddle most of the time. I sleep hot (which is weird since I’m cold a lot of the time during the day, but oh well) and sometimes need my space, but the queen definitely feels like enough.
I grew up in a twin bed and Fiance had a full, so to both of us, the queen feels expansive! Probably helps that I’m 5’1″…

If you have the space, get a king.

It seems like you would be fine with a Queen.
We however have a California King! The dog sleeps with us and she hogs ALL the bed space and my husband is quite tall so we def needed the California King for extra length.
* Twin–39 x 75 inches (or 99 x 190 cm)
* X-Long Twin–39 x 80 inches (99 x 203 cm)
* Full–54 x 75 inches (137 x 190 cm)
* Queen–60 x 80 inches (or 153 x 203 cm)
* King–76 x 80 inches (or 198 x 203 cm)
* California King–72 x 84 inches (or 182 x 213 cm)

I’m a bad sleeper, and have really bad bouts of insomnia at different times in my life. One of the things that really contributes is the bed. We actually have 2 twin matresses and have them on our king bed, no motion transfer is amazing. It helps with sleep A LOT. My Fiance is like a furnace and I like to sleep cold, all in all BIG is nice, makes my life better.

@KLP2010: lol, thats a good reason to have more space right there! I didn’t think of that!
hmmm… wonder if we should consider cal king. Fiance is 6’3 so his feet at right at the edge, though he sleeps curled up anyways.
