With its spacious dimensions of 60 inches wide and 80 inches long, the queen bed has the large market share for tall adults due to its cost effective price compared to king size. Many non-standard queen sizes were also introduced in the furniture market as experiments that did not prove to be as successful as the standard sizes.
