Split King mattresses are essentially two twin mattresses on separate bases and box springs. The total size of the mattress is 76 inches in width and 80 inches in length. Of all the mattress sizes, king mattresses are often best mattress for couples, and split king mattresses are even better.
You’ve probably seen countless advertisements online and in televisions commercials that feature split king mattresses. For some people, they look like a dream come true. But, do they really live up to the expectations? These are just a few benefits to consider as you explore the option of split king mattresses.
Easier to Move than Traditional King-Sized Mattresses
This is especially helpful to people who have bedrooms on second (or higher) floors. Split king mattresses can easily be broken down into two twin mattresses which are much easier to navigate up stairs and around tight corners than one king size mattress.
Accommodates Different Partner Preferences
In many relationships partners have different needs and preferences when it comes to mattresses. A partner, for instance, with GERD or acid reflux, may need to sleep with his or her head raised in order to prevent painful bouts of heartburn or acid reflux. Sleeping on a reclining bed or one that adjusts to keep the head raised is a great plan for that partner.
However if the other partner prefers side or stomach sleeping, it would be problematic in an adjustable bed that is not split. Split beds allow both partners to share a bed and still get to sleep according to their individual preferences.
Eliminates Motion Transfer Problems
Motion transfer is a big deal on some mattresses with one partner disturbing the other every time he or she rolls over or makes a midnight run to the bathroom. By sleeping on completely separate mattresses, you eliminate that problem completely (unless of course your partner is notorious for violating the neutral space in the middle). Ordinarily though, the seam in the middle makes it somewhat uncomfortable to do so.
Less Involved Replacements or Adjustments
Since the mattresses are individually contained, you can replace or exchange one element, being the mattress or box spring on either side, without needing to replace the entire mattress. In the event of latex mattresses, this means that one mattress can be adjusted for firmness without having any kind of impact on the other mattress.
Clearly Defined Personal Space – When You Want
Perhaps the biggest benefit for some couples, particularly those who prefer to have their own sleep space is that you get precisely that with split king mattress. Adjustable beds allow you to sleep with your head and/or feet raised according to your preferences, by raising or lowering to standards that are different than your partner; you’re able to clearly identify your personal space when you want it, or adjust the beds flat when you prefer to cuddle.
Another benefit of split adjustable beds is that they may help relieve or diminish certain types of snoring that disrupt sleep. This gives everyone a better night’s sleep. With so many benefits to split king mattresses is hard to imagine choosing anything else.
