How to choose the right super king bed?
The first thing you need to check is that you have enough room to fit your super king bed into your bedroom. Check that there is adequate space around the sides for you to move, open doors, or access storage, too. So our top tip is to measure twice before you buy!
If you want to include some extra storage then look for super king beds that have divan or ottoman bases. Ottomans open from the side or the base, so if space is tight, they make more sense than a divan bed where the drawers will need extra space on the sides to open fully. Then it’s time to pick the type of super king bed – wooden or metal? A wooden super king bed frame will be heavier than a metal option.
However, a metal bed frame does need a little more looking after and regular maintenance if you want to prevent any squeaks or creaks. Consider access into the bedroom, too. A metal frame is easily assembled and comes flat-packed, whereas a wooden bed frame may be a struggle to get through a narrow doorway!
How much bigger is a super king bed than a king-size bed?
While there is no actual difference in length between a king-size and a super-king-sized mattress, but the super-king option does give you an extra 12” in width. A super-king mattress is almost as wide as it is long, giving you a much larger sleeping area that makes it suitable for taller or larger sleepers. There’s plenty of space for two people to stretch out on a super king.
If you are buying a new mattress, don’t be tempted to buy the larger super-king option if your bed frame is designed for a king-size mattress, as the mattress will overhang the edges by six inches, causing instability and severe sagging. Ensure that your mattress is the correct size for your bed frame.

Do you need a super king-size bed frame?
A luxurious super king-size bed may seem like the stuff of dreams. But do you need a super king frame? It all comes down to the space, or lack thereof, that you have to work with. Super king-size beds are only suitable for large bedrooms that can accommodate such a space-taking bed design. If you have a bedroom with rough dimensions of 14ft x 10ft then you’re in luck – a super king bed is the bed for you.
For slightly smaller spaces, scale back to a king-size bed to enjoy comparable levels of comfort. Super king-size beds are great for families, providing adequate room for fidgeting couples, and sharing story time with the kids and a curled-up dog.
The enhanced size of a super king bed frame also makes it suitable for larger individuals who require extra space. There are things to consider when purchasing a super king bed, however. Namely, bedding. There’s less variation when it comes to super king-sized bedding, plus the price is more expensive than smaller models - but you might find it worth the money.
