Over 6 foot? Maybe you're part of a tall couple? Here's how to find the best beds for tall people.
If you're on the taller side and looking for a new sleep set-up, it's important you consider the best beds for tall people. Getting the right bed for your height is paramount to a good night's sleep, helping you stay in a healthy sleeping position all night rather than cramped up and bent double. While you can't guarantee everywhere you'll stay will have a bed that fits you, you can make sure your own bed is the best for a tall person.
Currently, a standard double bed is just 6'3" long - or 1.9m. Given that we don't usually lay in bed with our heads right against the headboard, this means that anyone over, say, 5'9 may find a standard double too short. It's recommended that you buy a extra-long bed that is 6" or 15cm longer than the tallest person sleeping in it. If you're 6'4" - not an uncommon height today - you'll need a tall bed that's 6'10" long.
Whilst you can get long bed custom-made for you - and if you're extremely tall, that's a good idea - you may find that a super king-size bed will work for you. At MattressNextDay, several of our ranges are available in super king size, which is usually 6' wide by 6'6" long. With a good mattress, tall people should be able to get a good night's sleep in a super king bed - particularly as many people tend to sleep in a curled-up (fetal) position. A super king bed gives you both the length and the width you need to be supported and comfortable at night, so it's the ideal bed size for tall people.
If you or your partner have problems finding furniture or beds to accommodate your height, give us a call. We can talk you through the extra-long beds we have available and give you advice when it comes to trying and buying your next long bed. Don't suffer any longer than you absolutely have to in a bed that's too small. You'll be amazed at the difference a new, wider, tall bed can make to your overall health and well-being.
