4 Reasons to Size-Up Your Mattress

If you're on the hunt for a new mattress, you likely have a pretty good idea of what you want in a new bed. Maybe you're in need of a little extra firmness or want the support and comfort of a memory foam mattress. But, in all your dream bed requirements, have you considered sizing up?

If you're contemplating getting a new bed and have been wondering, "What kind of mattress should I get?" or even, "What size mattress do I need?", there has never been a better time to upgrade your bed.

Here are just a few reasons why you should consider sizing up your mattress:

4 Reasons to Size Up Your Mattress

1. Don't disturb your partner.

Maybe you're reading, watching TV or catching up on a few emails. Regardless of how you like to spend your time, finding a bed to match your needs (and your partner's needs) is a pretty important factor when choosing a bed. A king size mattress gives you the best of both worlds — plenty of space for you to spread out and enjoy your time in bed.

2. Make room for everyone.

Do you have kids? Pets? Both? When you share a queen size mattress with a partner, it doesn't take much for one person to get crowded off the edge. A sick or scared child who needs cuddles, any dog that's larger than a terrier… you know how it goes. If you upgrade to a king, you'll have room for the kids to cuddle or a Great Dane to rest at your feet. And, on family movie night, everyone can pile into mom and dad's bed with enough room for the popcorn bowl.

3. It's simple math.

Most people don't realize just how small a queen size mattress really is. Standard queen mattress dimensions are 60″ across, which leaves 30″ of width for each person. For comparison, a twin bed is 38″ inches wide — 8″ MORE per person than a queen! And we all know that a twin doesn't exactly feel roomy. If you're sleeping with a partner, there's no need to live like you're in college— it's time to up-size to a king so you can have nearly 30% more sleeping surface to share.

4. Your bed is important.


Not to be dramatic, but there's a reason it's called a BEDroom. Your bed is an important part of your home, your overall health and comfort. Don't just keep sleeping in the same one by default — remember, you spend a significant amount of time sleeping on your mattress — more than just about anything else you have in your home or office. There's no reason to wait to get the bed that you want, and deserve.
