The Great Sleep Showdown: King vs. Super King Mattresses

At The A2Z Furniture, we understand the importance of a good night's sleep. Choosing the right mattress is a crucial step towards achieving that, but with so many options available, it can be confusing. Today, we're here to settle the "Great Sleep Showdown" by comparing two popular sizes: king-size and super king-size mattresses.


Size Matters: Understanding the Dimensions

  • King: The ever-popular king mattress measures 183cm x 203cm (72 inches x 80 inches), offering ample space for most couples.
  • Super King: As the name suggests, the super king takes things a step further. It measures 200cm x 200cm (79 inches x 79 inches), providing an additional 20cm (8 inches) of blissful width.

Space and Sleeping Style: Finding Your Perfect Fit

  • King: A great choice for most bedrooms, especially those with average dimensions. It's ideal for couples who appreciate some personal space while sleeping.
  • Super King: This size truly shines in spacious bedrooms. It caters to individuals who love to spread out or sleep in various positions throughout the night. It's also a game-changer for couples who crave maximum comfort or share their bed with furry companions.

Bedding and Budget Considerations

  • King: Standard king-size bedding is readily available and typically more affordable compared to super king.
  • Super King: Requires specialized super king-size bedding, which might be slightly more expensive and have limited availability depending on your location. Additionally, super king mattresses themselves often come at a premium price point due to their size and potentially higher material requirements.

Here at The A2Z Furniture, we want to help you make an informed decision.

Who should choose a King mattress?

  • Couples who prefer some personal space while sleeping.
  • Individuals with smaller bedrooms.
  • Budget-conscious shoppers looking for a readily available option with more variety in bedding.

Who should choose a Super King mattress?

  • Couples who crave ultimate comfort and ample space to sprawl out.
  • Individuals who prioritize luxurious sleep experiences and spaciousness.
  • Those with large bedrooms and the budget to accommodate the grander size and potentially higher cost.

The Bottom Line: Choosing Your Sleep Sanctuary

Ultimately, the "winner" of the Great Sleep Showdown depends on your individual needs and preferences. Consider your sleeping style, available space, budget, and bedding availability before making your choice.

Additionally, don't forget about:

  • Body type: Taller sleepers or those with broader builds may benefit from the extra room a super king offers.
  • Number of sleepers: If you share your bed with a partner or pet, a super king might be more comfortable.
  • Personal preference: Some people simply value having more space, regardless of bedroom size or sleeping style.

No matter your choice, remember that selecting a mattress with the right firmness level and support for your individual needs is paramount for a truly restful slumber.
