King Size Mattresses
Why You Should Choose a King Size Mattress
When compared to the California King, the King size mattress is the more popular choice out of the two largest mattress sizes. It is ideal for couples who want plenty of space to sleep comfortably or have human or fur babies that crawl into bed with them. A King mattress also provides ample space for single sleepers who want the luxury of extra room to move around during the night. It is approximately 16 inches wider than the most popular mattress size, a Queen. If you have a big bedroom and enjoy sprawling out and getting comfy, you might want to consider going with a King size bed.

Should I buy a King sized mattress in-store or online?
It’s all about your own personal shopping preference. Some people are online shoppers and that is what they are most comfortable with while others are more of an in-person shopper where touching, feeling and seeing the product is the only way they want to shop. So it really is all about which way you prefer to shop. There really is no right or wrong way to shop for a mattress. If you are, however, the latter, click here to find a Serta store near you.
