Super king size vs king size

Sleep is an important part of our life and has a massive impact on our health and wellbeing. Having a bed which ensures a comfortable sleep is important as the wrong bed can cause all sorts of issues related to your health such as pains, aches and sleep apnoea.

Couples and adults prefer king size beds as they are more spacious in length and width, Also, they give a luxurious look to your room and provide a great amount of comfort too.

So, what is a super king size mattress?

Super king size mattress is broader than the king size mattress and offers the greatest comfort and luxury. A super king size mattress sizes are 180 x 200cm (6’0” x 6’6”). It is rare and not readily available on the market. This type of mattress and its fittings are often custom-made. A super king mattress fits well in the bedroom at least 14 by 19 feet.

King size mattress measurements are 76 inches wide by 80 inches long. With a surface area of 6080 inches, the king size mattress is large enough for couples and can easily accommodate children. Two twin XL size mattresses positioned side by side can make one king size mattress. A king size bed is half a foot bigger than a double bed.

When it comes to double or king mattress size, there is no common thickness. The thickness or height varies varying on the brand or manufacturer.

What is a king size mattress?

King size mattress is the largest standard size and is easily available on the market. King size mattress dimensions are 150 x 200cm (5’0” x 6’5”). It fits well in the bedroom size 13 by 13 feet or more. King mattresses are longer than double sized mattresses and best suit people who need extra legroom.

What should you consider before buying a king or super king mattress?

Personalised mattresses are more expensive than ready-made mattresses. Check out if your desired mattresses and accessories are all available within your set cost. Keep in mind an expensive mattress doesn’t mean top quality or a long-lasting mattress. Price may vary depending on the material, brand etc.

Mattresses are the most used furniture pieces and are a serious investment for a good night’s sleep. The pricing is the main factor to consider when purchasing a super king size or a king size mattress.

Your room size is also, a factor in what size mattress you should buy, whether it be king size or super king.

Also, when thinking of buying a king or super king, ensure to think about space for walking around in your room, we suggest don’t buy a bed which is too big for your room, as this will limit space for you to move around and also, limit space for drawers and wardrobes.

Also, think about how many people will sleep on your bed, will it just be you and your partner or will your children and pets sleep on your bed too.

Super king size bed vs king size: both are perfect for couples and for co-sleeping with children or pets. Unlike the super king, king beds are perfect for adjusting two diverse types of mattresses.

This feature offers comfort to people of varying heights and sizes, and particular body needs. Super kings are best for individuals with longer legs to spread out.

Most companies manufacture beds which are a few dimensions wider than the mattress.

This ensures enough support for your body structure but those extra inches consume more space in your bedroom, unfortunately. So, to decide between a king size and a super king size, consider a bed frame of any material which is quite like your mattress size.

It is important to consider where you would like to place your mattress and bed. Also, it is important to consider the location, as if you order a mattress or bed which doesn’t fit through your door due to narrow staircases, then this can be an issue. Super king mattresses are oversized as well as heavy, which makes it difficult to transport them especially when your room is on a second floor.

However, king sizes are easy to move around, especially if they are made of two mattresses instead of one. Also, ensure your company provides free shipping and easy returns as you don’t want the hassle in case of any issues.
