Which is better? A King Size Mattress or a Super King Size Mattress


When looking for luxury and maximum comfort, it’s tough to decide between a king size mattress and a super king size mattress.

Here at Better Bed Company, we have had so many customers asking for advice on the advantages and disadvantages of both.

We all have different wants and needs when it comes to buying a mattress. Along with personal conditions such as back pain or physical conditions like room size, there are many factors you should take into account before buying your mattress.

With this being said, we have compiled the best attributes for each size to help you make the right decision for you bedroom.

King Size Mattress –

At the size of 150cm x 200cm, a king size mattress will comfortably fit anyone above 6ft tall. No more feet dangling, and no more fighting your partner for room in bed!

The king size mattress comes in a variety of materials, spring systems and firmness.

From pocket springs to cool blue memory foam, roll-up mattresses and orthopaedic mattresses, our king size mattress selection is one of the largest on the market today.

Super King Size Mattress –

With an extra 30cm width totalling 180cm x 200cm, you and your partner have that extra room to spread starfish style!

But that extra width means you need to ensure your room can fit such a large piece of furniture in, let alone the mattress.

The super king size mattress comes in a variety of materials, spring systems and firmness. Support is a crucial factor when it comes to choosing a super king mattress.
