Choosing a King Size Mattress

Apart from the size, there are other factors to consider when purchasing a king size mattress. First, you need to know whether a king size mattress is really the size you need.

So before you go about checking out catalogs with these super-sized mattresses, you first need to ask yourself a few important questions.

First, how many people are supposed to occupy the bed? One? Two? You and all your children? Or is it for some other person such as a houseguest? Second, do you have a history of allergies or other skin conditions that may directly or indirectly be caused by exposure to fabric or other material?

Third, how much support do you need from a bed? Fourth, how often do you intend to use the mattress? Is it for a cottage you rarely visit, or for your home where you regularly sleep at night?

You might ask, what is the relevance of all these questions to my decision in buying a king size mattress? For starters, if you're intending the king size mattress for use in a guest room, then your houseguest might just overstay when he experiences night after night of utterly blissful sleep.

As for your tendency to have allergies, it's important to purchase a king size mattress with a pillow top that's posturepedic and at the same time hypoallergenic.

If you're the only one using the bed, then a king size mattress might be too much. Sure, having all that space is a luxury you can afford now, but you'll have to buy at least two queen or king size pillows or three standard pillows for that large a bed. You'll also have extra large bedsheets to wash each time.

A king size mattress can be rather pricey, too, so you have to be really sure it's the size you want before making any hasty purchases. To protect your investment, you can buy a mattress protector pad for your king size mattress. This pad protects the material beneath it from accidental spills and stains.

You can also opt for a king size mattress that is topped with a pillow top or a posturepedic layer to give you the most comfortable sleep you can ever have. These additional layers tend to conform to the natural contours of your body, so waking up with a stiff back or sore hips would be things of the past.

Having these wonderful, comfortable additions to your king size mattress will set you back about $300 more, but they're definitely worth their price.

If you overlooked purchasing a mattress protrector pad, avoid using dry cleaning fluid on your king size mattress. It would be better to vacuum the problem spot instead.

Remember, a king size mattress is an investment you have to carefully mull over before purchase. Go online to check out all the possible choices. Take a step further and visit a store. Don't be embarrassed to try it out for size and see if it's the one that you'll want to be sleeping on for the rest of your life. Furthermore, if you have a partner, take him or her along.
