A split queen mattress is a whole different ballgame. There are two reasons that I can think of for ordering a split queen mattress. The first reason, of course, is if the mattress and box spring will not fit where it is going and you prefer a queen size bed. The second, more creative reason to order a split queen mattress is if two sleeping partners like different sleeping surfaces. One may like a firm mattress and the other a soft mattress. This is doable. It looks better if the mattresses are about the same height. Each side of a split queen mattress will be 30 inches wide by 80 inches long. In comparison, a twin mattress is approximately 39 inches wide by 75 inches long. Because the individual width of a split queen is so narrow, few people would opt to separate the split queen (if they also had split box springs), with a nightstand separating the two sides or some other divided.
Our split queen sheet sets have your choice of two fitted bottom sheets or one fitted bottom sheet, the single fitted bottom sheet being the most popular. The single split queen bottom sheet is more popular because the bed is easier to make. If you ever want to separate the beds, opt for the two separate bottom sheets. The top sheets for the split queen sheet set are separate and two pillows are included.
Likewise, if you order a mattress pad for the split queen sheet set, the split mattress pad can be purchased as one mattress pad or two 30 x 80 mattress pads.
