King-size sheets are 76 inches wide and 80 inches long, but queen-size sheets are only 60 inches wide with the same length. King- and queen-size beds typically are larger for master and guest rooms, respectively.
King-size sheets are more expensive than other bedding. King-size beds are larger and better suited for people with larger body types. The width of the bed gives two people more than 3 feet of space each in which to sleep. Queen-size bedding is a little smaller in size and cost. Queen-size beds have a little less than 3 feet of sleeping space per person. They are a better fit for taller people than full-size beds.
