We have a queen, but would love to get a kind at some point. Just remember that with a king, bedding costs more, and they are going to be a real pain if you move. I can’t imagine how we would have gotten a king up the stairs of our current place.

We rent a house and have a king! Love the extra space since we have a dog. It will be a pain when we move in a few months but we hire movers now that we have a house worth of stuff.

Like catskillsinjune and amanda1988, Darling Husband and I definitely prefer a queen. When we travel and have a king, we end up not sleeping well because we sprawl out too much.

We have a super-King. It’s our bit of luxuary (though I’m a bit of a ‘starfish’ and still quite often manage to push Fiance to within an inch of the edge.

King!! We had a queen for years, and I was always like, oh a king is sooo big it’ll be too big. Nope. I absolutely love it. Our mattress was the best money we’ve probably ever spent.

megrays : King for sure. My husband is very tall and while I’m very short, I take up at least 75% of the bed ha

If you are two small people, queen is probably plenty. My sister is 5ft and her husband is 6’1 and they slept in a double for years, though it was tight. They have a queen now and she finds it much better.
My husband is 6’3 and Im 5’6 so we take up a bit more space.. When we first started dating during college we slept in his single haha! We’ve had double, queen and now king.
I didnt find queen to be terrible but certainly got warm quickly even when you werent touching.

It confuses me a bit to see people say they like a king over a queen because they or their SO is tall—-a King and Queen share identical lengths. A king is something like 16″ wider.
If you want the length for someone tall, you need to invest in a California King which has an additional 4 inches of length.
My husband and I love our queen, but I’m not opposed to a giant bed either…some days the cat takes up more space than I do, I think. The next one we buy, I’ll probably upgrade to a King.

King. We bought our king size when we were renting. Worth it all the way. We have two large dogs that sleep with us, so we had to have the room.

We rent and, at least where we are, we would have had a VERY tough time finding a room large enough fit a king bed. Our bedroom now has our queen bed + our dressers and there is NO extra room. We sleep in it comfortably with a small dog.
I would love to upgrade to a king, but it will have to wait until we buy a house. Renting can also be pretty transient, so even if your current rental can fit a king there’s no guarantee your next one will. I think it’s pretty location dependent though. We live in a two family home built in 1919 in an area where there’s no space to add on. I can see how it would be different if we moved way out into the suburbs.
