The reason split king mattresses are growing in popularity is because of their immense benefits.
The largest selling point is how customizable they are. Two partners can customize their ideal sleeping space. It’s perfect for those who have differing preferences when it comes to sleep positions, mattress firmness, bed habits, and health necessities.
A large king mattress can be difficult to carry into a home, up stairs, and into bedrooms. For couples that may move bedrooms or homes, the split king offers a great solution. Because it is comprised of two smaller models, navigating the transportation of the mattress is less of a headache.
Because the king is, obviously, split, there is no motion transfer. Different schedules or light sleepers won’t be interrupted because the movement on the other side of the bed is eliminated.
You can get more bang for your buck with the split king, because it is easy to replace each individual side. If one mattress begins to sag sooner than another, or some other issue arises, it can be easier and more cost effective if a replacement is needed.
At the end of the day, sometimes it’s nice to just take your space. Split kings take away the sense that if you roll too far to the middle, you’ll end up hitting your partner and vice versa. Sleeping together but separately can give those who share a bed a better night’s sleep.
So go ahead and get ready to sprawl, we won’t judge.
