Are you fed up with sleeping on the very edge of the bed? Tired of not being able to stretch out? Couples often have trouble choosing the right size mattress for their home and sleeping habits, but the sleep specialists at Mattress World Northwest can help. Bring your sleep partner to one of our fully stocked showrooms and let us help you find the bed of your dreams.
It’s always a good idea to do some quick measuring before you head over to the mattress store. You’ll need to know whether there are any size restrictions due to your available bedroom space. Here’s a look at some standard mattress sizes for couples:
In addition to the space you have available in your bedroom, your sleeping habits will play a major role in determining the right mattress size for you. If both partners tend to sleep like a log—without moving around much—and cuddling is a priority, consider choosing a full or queen size mattress.
If one or both partners tends to be active sleepers, you might be happier with a king size bed. The luxurious space of a king allows you to stretch out and move around to your heart’s content, without worrying that you’re annoying your partner. Restless sleepers might also consider choosing a memory foam or latex mattress, since these reduce motion transfer better than inner spring mattresses.
The body type of both partners should be taken into consideration before making a final purchasing decision. When one or both partners have a larger body type, it’s usually preferable to choose a wider, supportive bed, such as a king size inner spring. On the other hand, if one or both partners are quite tall, try out a California king size mattress. California kings are four inches narrower than a standard king size, but they are also four inches longer than a standard king.
Unfortunately, not every couple’s sleeping habits are compatible. If you and your partner agree on the need for plenty of space for sleeping, but disagree on the type of mattress and its firmness level, there is an easy solution. Purchase two twin size beds of the types and firmness levels each of you prefers and push them together. Two standard twin size mattresses equal the width of one standard king size bed.
