Why choose a super king size bed?

A good night's sleep is essential for our overall health and wellbeing, and having a spacious and comfortable bed is key to achieving this. A super king size bed is the largest size available, measuring 6ft by 6ft 6in or 180cm by 200cm (rounded up). It offers ample space for individuals or couples to stretch out and get comfortable, without feeling cramped or confined. It's perfect for those who like to spread out while they sleep or for those who co-sleep with children or pets.

Another benefit of a super king size bed is that it can help reduce disturbances during the night. If you or your partner frequently move around in your sleep, a larger bed can help reduce the impact of these movements, allowing for a more peaceful and restful sleep. Additionally, if you suffer from sleep apnoea or other sleep disorders, a larger bed can provide the necessary space to use a CPAP machine or other sleeping aids without feeling cramped or uncomfortable.

Factors to consider when buying a super king size bed

When choosing a super king size bed, there are several factors to consider to ensure you get the best possible sleep experience. Firstly, size is crucial. Make sure you measure your room to ensure that the bed will fit comfortably and leave enough space around it for easy movement. Although a super king size mattress is 6ft * 6ft 6in the bed sizes vary significantly. For example a ottoman divan bed will take the same width as the mattress and just an extra 3 inches in length to allow for the headboard, compared with our luxury sleigh bed in super king size, that would be 3 inches wider and a whopping 1ft 4in longer. It's also important to consider the height of the bed and ensure that it is easy to get in and out of.

Next, consider the materials and design of the bed. Look for high-quality materials that will last for years and provide the necessary support and comfort. Consider the style of the bed and how it will fit with the overall design of your bedroom. Bed frames come in a range of styles, from classic to contemporary, so choose one that matches your personal taste and complements your existing decor.

Finally, consider any additional features you may need, such as under-bed storage in the form of pull out drawers or gas lift up ottoman function. These can help maximize the space in your room and provide added convenience and comfort.
