Getting those elusive 8 hours sleep isn't always easy. The first step to take to help improve your zzzz’s is to take a look at your bed and mattress. Could super-sizing make all the difference and help you to enjoy the perfect night’s sleep?
When it comes to your bed, size does matter, especially if you share it with a partner. The bigger the bed, the bigger the personal space you can enjoy. And that should translate to a better quality night’s slumber. No matter how much you love someone, there’s no getting away from the fact that their nocturnal turnings can disturb your sleep. A super king size bed measures a luxurious 6’ x 6’6” - a full foot wider than a standard king size bed. With all that extra room, you can say goodnight to rolling together.
Storage beds or frames?
So you’ve decided that a super king size bed is the right choice for you. Now it’s time to choose the style. A classic framed bed will always look elegant and is a timeless choice. Metal and wood can be either traditional or boldly modern. Or look for an upholstered bed in linen, velvet or tweed for a deeply luxurious style statement.
And don’t forget about storage. Unless you’re blessed with rooms of palatial proportions, clever storage solutions can be the key to maintaining a neat, minimal look. Opting for a super king size divan bed with built-in storage underneath is a practical solution when space is tight. It means you can neatly shut away out of sight all those essentials, from spare duvets to shoes
What is the best mattress?
Next, it’s time to select your perfect mattress. Open sprung, pocket sprung, latex, memory foam: the choice can seem bewildering.
As a general rule, if you sleep on your side you may be suited to a mattress that adapts to your shape, like a memory foam mattress. This gently cradles your body, relieving pressure points. And back or front sleepers may benefit from the support of a sprung mattress, which helps to distribute weight evenly.

Feeling hot and bothered?
Many of us get overheated at night and can wake up in an uncomfortable sweat. If that’s you, look for a mattress with a naturally breathable top layer like wool, cashmere, silk or cotton. And if you’re prone to allergies, look for a high quality, hypoallergenic casing to prevent dust-mites from spoiling your snoozing.
You get what you pay for
Like most things, when it comes to mattresses you get what you pay for. Buy the best quality mattress you can afford. But whether you spend hundreds or thousands on a mattress, the advice from The Sleep Council is to consider changing it every seven years.
Finishing the look
There’s no doubt that the impressive size of your super king bed is going to dominate your bedroom. So look to hotel tricks to make it a beautiful focal point. Enliven crisp white linens with carefully placed cushions and throws. They’ll add texture and colour that you can change with the seasons or your mood, and they’ll instantly transform your bedroom into a restful haven.
You spend a third of your lifetime in your bed, so you may as well make it the best, and the biggest, you can. Super-size your bed to a super king and get ready to have the perfect night's sleep.
