The Benefits of a King-Size Mattress

Sometimes you just need a little space, and that’s no different when it comes to sleep. There is the romanticized view of falling asleep in your partner’s arms, but this can lead to 50 percent more nighttime disturbances than if you chose to sleep without touching your partner. The size of your bed may determine just how close you sleep them, as well. The width of a full-size bed gives each person a smaller sleeping area than what babies have in their standard-size crib. Just moving from a queen to a king gives you an additional 16 inches of width to toss and turn during the night.
Wide open spaces
But what exactly does that extra room mean for you? Being able to stretch out and get comfortable is an obvious perk, but also throughout the night, you are less likely to disturb your partner when you are moving. Some health conditions make it difficult to get comfortable at night, so that extra space is crucial for the extra movement. King-size mattresses also make it easier to relieve pressure points as the sleeping area is bigger versus being on the edge of the mattress in a smaller size bed.
Gang's all here
Also with the extra room, more people (or animals!) can pile in comfortably. So if you kids have a bad dream or just need some extra cuddles from mom or dad, then you have some space for them to join you. Now, we can’t promise that they won’t take up more than their fair share of mattress real estate, however. Same goes for pets; if your furry best friend likes to sleep with you, a king-size bed gives them their spot to do so.
