What to look for when buying a new superking bed

The designs in bed and bedding are geared towards providing greater comfort for users, considering the fact that a good night’s sleep is critical to our well-being. Roomy beds are sized to provide sufficient space and the super king bed is one such design. Read more for tips on what to look for when buying a new super king bed.

Size

The super king bed as the name suggests is a roomy bed type measuring 6’ in width and 6’6” in length. Check for accurate measurements as there may be variations to this standard. Due to its large size, it must be ensured that there is sufficient space to fit the bed in properly in the room. Standard double bedrooms suffice, but check on furniture arrangement to ascertain that required clearances are maintained. Given the larger size, you should also check that the bed can be easily brought into the location. The layout of the building, landing width, angle of entryway and possibility of assembling bed on location influence this aspect. Check if suppliers will deliver it to the location.

Mattress and bedding

The mattress bedding is critical to sleeping comfort. Check the super king mattress size and ensure compatibility and try it out before buying a mattress. Based on your personal preferences you may choose a spring mattress, memory foam mattress or one in natural latex. Options are available for special needs such as orthopaedic mattresses or those designed for allergy prone users. Other bedding items of matching size required are bed sheets, blankets, pillows and pillow covers. Be careful in choosing these and pay special attention to size. For budget considerations, you can check if these are better bought as separates or a part of a set.

Bedframe or base

Several styles are available in the super king size. Divan beds will come with a bed base whereas you could go for a bedstead look by buying only the bed frame. Consider the frame material of the bed
– whether you should go for wood or metal. Keep in mind that the chosen material will shape the decor of the room. Based on your need for storage and the nature of items stored and access required, there are several options for storage. When you choose the storage options, check space available in the room to make sure it can be accessed easily. For instance, a drop-down front will need less space than a drawer. The super king bed is the ultimate in luxury. Balance this aspect with practical issues and room décor during selection.
