Queen bed are just 6 inches wider than double size mattresses, yet another queen bed frame has an extra component that is very important: a bar. The bar in the queen bed frame provides more support for the box spring and helps distribute stress evenly. Without a center bar, box spring and mattress will come in the middle. It is a simple process for converting a double bed into a queen with a converter rail set, so there is no need to shop for an expensive new headboard just because you want more bedrooms.

Remove the entire mattress and field spring and examine the frame of the bed furniture. Remove old metal rails and throw. Install the complete to queen bed converter rail, which can be purchased at an online mattress store or local furniture store. The new railway will hook and / or bolt to wooden parts of your old bed. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to attach the new side rails to the headboard and footboard. Adjust the side rails to fit the width of your new mattress, as a queen should be 60 inches. Also adjust the height of the middle support leg so that it touches the floor.
Place new mattresses on the bed. Drape a queen bed over the box spring-a bed skirt will camouflage the legs of the bed so it becomes less noticeable that the new mattress is slightly wider. Place the new mattress on top. Double is 54-inches wide, while queens are only six inches wider at 60 inches. Queens are also a little longer, 80 inches instead of 75 inches. Double beds also known as “full” and meant for a single person who wants extra room or a couple living in confined spaces.
