Use Your King Mattress With Queen Headboard

Use your king mattress with your queen headboard and a king bed frame. Have you found yourself longing to upgrade to a king size mattress, but don’t want to give up your perfectly good queen size bedroom suite? Well, rest easy friends. We now have a product, the King Modi Plate, that will allow you to keep it.

Use your king mattress with queen headboard or queen headboard with king mattress.

I will highlight the pros and cons, and offer a few helpful tips for using your king mattress with your queen headboard or even using your queen mattress with a king headboard.

Pros

  • You can keep your current bedroom set
  • Save money (because you don’t have to buy new furniture!)
  • Much less work involved in installing a modi-plate versus setting up all new furniture.

Cons

  • There are 16 inches difference in queen and king size mattresses. If you have a big, wood or metal headboard that’s over-sized as it is, you’ll more than likely be satisfied with how it looks. However, err on the side of caution when using thinner, more delicate headboards. We assembled this product in the store on two different headboards (one king-to-queen and again on queen-to-king) to show how it looks.

Below is what the King Modi Plate looks like with a queen headboard, and a king size mattress. Two products used (other than the queen headboard): King modi-plate and Leggett and Platt Restmore king size bed frame, item # K45G.

If your headboard is thicker than the ones pictured here, the difference will much less noticeable. We intentionally picked two “worst case scenarios” to show you that it can look a little strange.
