The Biggest Benefits of a King Size Bed

We spend, on average, a third of our lives tucked up in bed! Getting a comfortable and restorative nights sleep can be the difference between a productive day or a day dragging your heels until your next visit to the land of nod. As our boudoirs get to see a lot of us, choosing the right bed and mattress for your room, is without a doubt, one of the most important purchases you’ll ever make.

Often when we’re sharing a bed with a partner, comparatively adults get less space to snooze than babies and children do, which can really affect quality of sleep… especially if you find your sleeping companion snores or steals the covers! So, opting for a bed with extra centimetres may not seem like a lot, but it can actually be a huge benefit to both of you!

The extra space that comes with a King Size Bed and mattress, spreads weight across the bed more evenly, helping to reduce stress on your body and bones. This makes this bed size a great option if you suffer from aches, pains and health problems.

We’ve compiled a list of a few cracking King Size Beds, that our incredible suppliers have dreamed up, to get you thinking about upgrading your sleeping situation and counting sheep in comfort.

1) Julian Bowen Deco Scalloped Velvet Bed

Are you a restless sleeper? Find it hard nodding off… and when you do you’re waking often in the night? If you’ve tried everything to improve your sleep pattern, it might be as simple as, your bed isn’t the right size!

An average double bed fits a mattress sized 135 x 190cm, whereas a King Size bed can accommodate a 150 x 200cm mattress. The extra length and width of the Deco Scalloped King Size Bed from Julian Bowen might just be what you need. Finished in a luxuriously soft velvet, with a sophisticated, scalloped headboard; pop on your favourite sleep set, eye mask and pick out a calming podcast to gently drift off for a full 8 hours of undisturbed and euphoric sleep.

2) Julian Bowen Camille Bed

When opting for a King Size Bed over a double, this beauty offers up lots of extra stretching-out space!

Fitting a 150 x 200cm mattress, that’s an extra 10cm in length and 15cm in width when compared to the double. It doesn’t sound like a huge difference, but every centimetre counts.

Typically, we all toss and turn in our sleep, but with a King Size Bed, your partner is far less likely to wake you, if you both have more room to move. No more elbows and knees to worry about! With a larger mattress surface area, your pressure points won’t feel as much tension and your body is better supported. Your mattress can work its magic and you won’t have to cling on to the side of your bed for dear life!

Elegantly styled, with a limed oak effect and linen upholstered headboard, the soft curves of the Camille King Size Bed will create a sophisticated and soothing spot to retreat to after a long day.

3) Vox Nature Bed with Slatted Headboard

Vox Nature Bed with Slatted Headboard

An issue with fitting a King Size Bed into a smaller space is sometimes the frame can completely swamp a room and be all that you can see when you walk through the door!

Giving your other furniture a chance to get noticed – styled in natural oak wood, the slatted headboard gives an open, airy feel to any space. That gorgeous early morning light creates some great shadows through the slats – such a treat to wake up to, starting your day off right!

Offering an extra 20cm in width when compared to the double, if you’re sharing with a partner that’s 10cm each… if you’re feeling kind? And if you’re lucky enough to get the bed all to yourself, that’s 32,000cm2 of space – the starfish pose is yours for the taking!

4) Vox Simple Customisable King Size Ottoman Bed

Vox Simple Customisable King Size Ottoman Bed

Adding to the amazing sleep benefits you get with a King Size Bed, you’re also able to utilise more floor space for storage. With a double, this space would go unused, but with a King Size, you can take full advantage.

The expertly designed and crafted Vox Simple range allows you to completely customise each piece of furniture, depending on your style and needs. The Simple Ottoman Bed not only gives you space to sprawl out and add extra pillows, but the lifting mattress feature gives easy access to everything you’ve hidden away. Store bedding, blankets and that ever-growing shoe collection and keep your bedroom clutter-free.

The customisation doesn’t stop there either… pick the headboard, legs, main body and mix and match styles to create your dream bed! You might even be tempted to go for the Super King Size and add the matching furniture to complete the look.

5) Lucinda Upholstered Side Ottoman Bed by Flair Furnishings

Another great bed with storage, but a totally different look and style to the Vox Simple range, is the Lucinda Upholstered Side Ottoman from Flair Furnishings.

Featuring elegant, studded details, a scroll design and deep buttons to the headboard and footboard, you’ll wake up feeling like a VIP! Elegant and sophisticated on the outside, practical on the inside. Store away bedding, blankets, scatter pillows and quilts, when you’re not using them. And if you need an extra layer, the powerful hydraulic piston system makes it easy to access your stash of soft accessories.

This King Size comes with extra length and width too, so you won’t have to mumble ‘move over’ in the wee hours.

6) Vox 4 You King 4 Poster Bed with Storage & Shelves

If you haven’t got oodles of space in your bedroom and the square-footage is keeping you up at night, the Vox 4 You 4 Poster King Size Bed is a sleep-saver.

Snuggle up with your nearest and dearest and watch movies on the projector screen available, and when it’s time to hit the hay, spread yourselves out and enjoy the extra space while you sleep. The bed is surrounded by shelves for books, movies and mementos and the four-poster bed design has been utilised with the ladder storage and shelved compartments in the headboard.

There is even an option to add a raised mattress mechanism so the space below the bed doesn’t go to waste. And when everything can be tidied away, your bedroom and mind will be clear and you can drift right off without a care in the world.

7) Woood Kingsize Black Metal Four Poster Bed

Storage space isn’t an issue? Looking for something stylish? The Woood Kingsize Four Poster Bed will make a big impact.

Not just to look at, the 160 x 200cm sleep space is a sight for sore eyes. Turning the classic four poster on it’s head – the bold, black powder coated steel bed mixes curves and sharp lines to frame your bedroom.

Pair with opulent accessories or keep things neutral with wooden accents. If you’re a lover of all things industrial style, add a set of festoon lights around the frame and doze off to them twinkling away above you.
