Sleep Tight Don't Fight: Why a Split King Mattress Can Help You Sleep Tonight

A good night's sleep is essential for our physical and mental health. But for couples, achieving restful sleep can be a challenge. Unequal sleep schedules, snoring, and temperature preferences can all disrupt a night's sleep and leave you feeling groggy in the morning.

A recent study by StudyFinds revealed that nearly half of all people (49%) sleep better in separate beds. This might seem drastic, but there's a solution that provides the best of both worlds: the Split King mattress.

A Split King mattress is essentially two Twin XL mattresses pushed together to create a perfect & accommodating king-size sleeping surface. The key difference is that each side can have its own firmness level, mattress type, or even be adjustable! This allows couples to customize their sleep experience without sacrificing the comfort of a shared bed.

Some of the benefits of a Split King mattress:
  • Reduced motion transfer: Does your partner toss and turn throughout the night? A Split King mattress absorbs motion on one side, eliminating disruption for the other sleeper.

  • Personalized comfort: Everyone has their own sleep preferences. With a Split King, you can choose the mattress that best suits your needs, whether you prefer a plush or firm feel.

  • Adjustable sleep experience: All the Split King mattresses we feature are adjustable, allowing you to fine-tune your bed's position with an adjustable base for ultimate comfort.

  • Temperature control: If you and your partner disagree on the ideal sleeping temperature, a Split King mattress can be a lifesaver. Some models even offer dual-zone temperature control, so each person can sleep at their preferred temperature. Keep in mind you can easily add climate control to any bed in the modern era. 

  • Embrace The Gap: The most common question is "What about the gap?" and our most common feedback from couples is, the gap works out great when sharing a bed with a partner! No more discomfort from not knowing where to place your elbow, a Split King can solve more than just motion isolation. 

While a Split King mattress might seem like a luxury upgrade, it's an investment that can significantly improve your sleep quality, your relationship and even your day-to-day work life. After all, a well-rested you is a happier you!

Is a Split King mattress right for you?

Consider these factors:

  • Sleep disruptions: Do your partner's sleep habits wake you up?
  • Sleep preferences: Do you have different mattress firmness or material preferences?
  • Temperature control: Do you and your partner disagree on the ideal sleeping temperature?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a Split King mattress could be the solution you've been looking for.
