What size is a King Size Mattress?

If your partner is a night time fidget a King Size mattress enables you to sleep in whatever position you choose without affecting the other person, allowing you to both sleep in peace. It is also worth remembering that when you are checking the size of your bedroom, allow a little extra on each side to take into account the size of the bed frame the King Size mattress will have to lay on. This will make the overall dimension a little wider than 5ft mattress.

The most affordable style of King Size mattress is the Traditional spring design. This makes it an ideal choice for those on a smaller budget or those trying out a King Size mattress for the first time. But don’t be misled into thinking that means the quality is less, they are more often than not hand tufted and have strengthened edging. This style of King size mattress is good if you struggle with sleeping pains or back-ache, as they are available in medium to very firm options which is ideal if you require additional support for your spine.

The construction of the mattresses means that these pocket spring versions tend not to be as warm as other kinds of mattress which can help with keeping cooler at night if you have a tendency to get overheated when asleep.
