Super king size explained

The standard UK super king size dimensions are: 6’ wide x 6’6” long (or 180 cm wide x 200 cm long). These in fact refer to the size of the mattress, as actual bed frames are slightly larger to accommodate the mattress, although mattress thickness varies considerably.

Please note that non-UK sizes have different dimensions, even if they have the same name. Home design experts recommend leaving 30” (76 cm) of space around the bed perimeter (excluding where the headboard meets the wall) to allow for adequate walking room.

Benefits of super king size beds

Here are some reasons why it could be time to upgrade to a super king size:

  • As the average sleeper shifts position almost 100 times a night, partner disturbance is one of the most common reasons for a poor night’s sleep. With a larger bed, you and your partner are less likely to bump into one another. This size is therefore especially suitable for taller people or those with a bigger build.
  • It is the perfect option for parents of young children who want to climb into bed with them on a stormy night, as neither parent has to sacrifice their own comfort while comforting their children.
  • Do you have a spacious master bedroom? If so, upgrading to super king size will create a more visually stunning look.
