The Benefits of a King-Size Mattress

— by Sleep Outfitters on Feb 16, 2024

A little space can go a long way. The same sentiment rings true when it comes to sleep. Falling asleep in your partner’s arms may sound romantic but can contribute to nighttime disturbances – up to 50 percent more than those who sleep without physical contact. Aside from personal choice, the size of your bed may determine just how close you sleep. The width of a full-size bed gives each person a smaller sleeping area than what infants have in their standard-size crib. Moving from a queen to a king gives you an additional 16 inches of width, allowing plenty of space to sleep well and undisturbed throughout the night.

Wide open spaces

If you plan to move into a new home, consider upgrading to a bigger mattress. Not only can you stretch out more in a king-size bed, but you’re also less likely to disrupt your partner if you toss and turn. Certain health conditions make it difficult to get comfortable at night, so extra space is crucial for individuals who experience restlessness while trying to sleep. With more room to move around, a king-size mattress makes it easier to relieve pressure points versus sleeping in a smaller bed that offers less edge support.

Additionally, more people (or pets!) can pile in cozily with the extra room. For those nights when bad dreams strike, or if your kids need more cuddles from mom or dad, you’ll have space for them to join you (we can’t promise they won’t take up more than their fair share of mattress real estate).

Now's the time

Now is a great time to upgrade to the king mattress you’ve been dreaming of; with everyday offers on select mattresses, our expert Outfitters team will help you find the perfect fit at the right price. Find a store near you to begin your journey to better sleep.
