Queen mattress sets with a queen bed frame are typically the biggest item in your bedroom. But that doesn't mean that they have to bust your budget.
Here's what you'll need to complete various types of mattresses and some highly rated discount queen size mattress sets that will fit your wallet as well as they fit your bedroom.
What typically completes a queen mattress set depends on the type of bed, where you're buying and your budget. Discount sets can come with a queen size bed frame, zippered cover, foundation, cheap platform bed or even a pump.
Sleep Innovations 10-inch Sure Temp Memory Foam Mattress Rated 4.6 out of 5. More than 70% of buyers gave it the highest rating. This extremely popular mattress has 3 inches of special memory foam that adapts to your body more quickly and draws heat away from you. It also comes with a kmit mattress cover. One buyer said that it was like sleeping on a marshmallow.
What about the foundation? Memory foam mattress sets really don't need a foundation or box spring. But memory foam sets are heavier than inner spring mattresses and require more support to reduce sagging and extra wear. Just putting them on the floor would work fine. But having to get 'up' that far in the morning is just too much work.
Most people need some type of platform to make getting in and out of bed easier. Owners of visco foam mattresses often buy metal bed frames to support wood box foundations or grid foundations. Or they elect to purchase a stylish platform bed, queen size. Check the bottom of this page for a couple of memory foam queen size bed frame options.
Sets for inner spring queen beds usually consist of the mattress plus a box spring foundation. They have matching fabric covers and detailing. But if you want a firmer feel, buy a traditional foundation, ortho box, grid foundation or wood platform.
Textrade Queen Inner Spring Pillow Top Mattress in a Box
Rated 3.9 out of 5. More than half of the buying reviewers give this the highest rating. Believe it or not, this inner spring mattress comes totally compressed in a box! It doesn't come with a box spring or bed frame. But look down the page for "Frequently Bought Together". Often there's a deal that gets you sets with the mattress, storage platform bed frame and headboard for a ridiculously low price! It's much less expensive than Serta queen mattress sets. And with the Serta you have to add on the cost of a bed frame.
Air mattress bed sets usually include the air pump and may include a solid surface foundation. In the case of the Sleep Number beds, the foundation sets are a modular design that you put together yourself to make a solid platform for the air chamber assembly.
Serta Elevated Diamond Coil Airbed Sets
Rated 3.9 out of 5 with half of the buyers giving it the top rating. This is a very high ranking for queen air bed sets because they are notorious for leaking and sagging. These sets have several nice features including clips and a velveteen surface that keeps the bed cover sheet from moving out from under you at night.
Water bed sets are normally referred to as 'kits'. They usually contain a vinyl mattress, stiff sided standup liner, a pump, a heater, drain/fill apparatus and a mattress pad. Specially designed bed platforms are usually sold separately.
For the larger queen or king size sets a 'split' design is used to make the bed frame easier to move and to reduce warping or flexing that could bring the heavy water mattress crashing down during the night.
Motion Reduced Waterbed Mattress Kit These queen waterbed mattress sets come complete with everything you need to set up a comfortable motion reduced water bed mattress. All you need to do is find a sturdy bed platform.
These two discount queen bed frame sets are very popular and highly rated by buyers and work well to support most queen mattress sets.

Prepac Manhattan Queen Platform Storage Bed, Espresso color
