How do you like your king bed?

Going from a queen bed to a king, what was it like? Does it seem that there is a lot more room, a little? I know a king is 16in. wider than a queen so that seems like a lot. we are considering buying one but it is a big chunk of money and really important that i find out just what if any difference the space makes beforehand.

  • lol its ok. im not worried about the length just the width. my son cosleeps w/ us (he is 2) sometimes plus i am pregnant plus my husband isnt a tiny man so we are in a tight squeeze in the queen

  • Oh trust me, we're not big people just super tall and we could fit like 3 more people in that bed with us! Adults!..so even the King should be good for you but I would do a Cali King if you have room in your bedroom for it.

  • When we stay in a hotel with a king bed, there is enough room that we each sleep on our own sides and never touch. We have chosen not to upgrade to a king bed at home because we have a beautiful wooden queen bed and lots of room in our bedroom with just the queen bed.

  • We have 3 kings- love all of them. I am a restless sleeper and need my space. Traveling can be hard.
