King Mattresses

Although the queen size mattress gives plenty of space, it is the king-size mattress that rules them all by comparison. At least in terms of size. These days, king size mattresses are the product of continuous design and development, which means that when the time comes to buy a new bed, your mattress will be top of the range. These beds are usually quite high quality and thanks to their size, they will more than accommodate your sleep needs, especially if space is a concern.

King Size Mattresses to Give Your Body Space and Support

This particular mattress is called king size because it is the biggest mattress size on the market. Of all the bed sizes for sale, this is the ideal one for anyone who really wants or likes to have the extra space. Generally, the price of the bed relates to both the size of the mattress as well as the brand. When buying king size mattresses make sure that you have done all of the price reviews for each of the models available. By doing this you should easily be able to come across the right bed at the right price.

The ultimate aim of the king-size mattress is to provide you with enough comfort and support to ensure a comfortable nights rest. Considering the features of the bed that are there to support the body, be sure that you know what your sleep needs are before you buy a new bed. The best bed suppliers will only sell reliable beds from trusted mattress brands, but doing comparisons won’t hurt.

The standard king size mattress dimensions in cm

Certainly bigger than the double and the queen mattress, although without a massive difference in prices, you can buy these beds online or in one of our stores. Before you make your purchase, however, you need to measure your bedroom to see if these dimensions will be suitable.

The king-size mattresses have these dimensions:

  • 183cm in width
  • 188cm in length

As you might have noticed, all beds in South Africa have a standard length of 188cm. Should you be taller and need more length, there is always the option of going with the king-size XL mattress which should accommodate your body quite comfortably. When you think about most modern bedrooms, and their small spaces, reviewing the size of your mattress in relation to the size of your bedroom will help you to make the right decision.

If you are disturbing your partners sleep with your nightly movements, or should they disturb you, a king-size mattress is a great option because the sheer size of the sleep space will reduce movement-related disruption. To take full advantage of this factor, buy a memory foam mattress. This will further reduce the issue of movements waking sleeping partners.

Price, sleep needs and space are all important considerations to make before you purchase the bed. But another factor to consider is the warranty. You will want your king-size bed to have the best lifespan, but should the bed not live up to your expectations, a warranty might help you save your investment.

The best way to get your value for money is to buy a bed from a reputable brand and a trusted mattress supplier. This will mean that you end up saving money in the long term because you won’t have to replace the bed for many years.

Protecting your new bed

With a warranty and a bed manufactured by a well-known brand, you shouldn’t have too many concerns over the bed having faults or ending up damaged. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t do those things that will keep the bed in good condition, such as:

  • Buy a quality mattress protector. With the protector dust and other allergens, as well as spills and possible stains, will be prevented from getting through to the delicate foams and fibres.
  • Airing your mattress. Strip off the sheets and allow the mattress to “breath”.
  • Rotating and flipping the bed, should it be one of those mattresses.
