People say that opposites attract, and nowhere is this more true than when it comes to bedtime preferences. If you prefer a plusher mattress while your sweetie likes a firmer sleeping surface, there’s no need to compromise if you don’t want to. You’ve got a few options that can meet both your and your partner’s needs.
Top Mattress Options for Couples
Couples already have a lot of things to think about when shopping for a mattress. You’ll need to find a mattress size that accommodates the two of you, and you’ll probably want something with minimal motion transfer. But what can you do if you have different comfort preferences?
As the name suggests, a dual-core mattress has two memory foam cores on each side. This allows you to choose between a firmer and a softer side, depending on your preferences. To adjust the firmness of a dual-core bed, simply unzip the cover and flip one side of the mattress over.
However, this option has a few drawbacks. Most dual-core models are pretty expensive, especially for a king-size bed. Additionally, they are almost always memory foam. So if you prefer the sturdy support of a hybrid, you're out of luck.
Split King Sets
Another option for couples with different firmness preferences is purchasing a split king mattress. The “split king” size actually consists of two twin XL mattresses placed side-by-side.
You can customize your split king with two different mattresses so you can each sleep according to your preference. For example, you may want a hybrid mattress while your partner wants an all-foam option.
At GhostBed, we make customization easy to do. Just give us a call (or send us a chat) and we’ll set you up with a split king that suits both you and your partner. This way, you can still sleep next to one another without making compromises on your comfort.
Tip: We recommend upgrading to our Split King Adjustable Set, which includes our award-winning power base. Not only will you have your own comfortable “side” of the mattress, but you can personalize it even further with custom elevation options.
Bonus Option: Mattress Toppers
An inexpensive way to change the feel of one side of your existing mattress is with a mattress topper. If you have a king-size bed, one partner can use a twin XL mattress topper to make their side of the bed a little plusher. The twin XL size will be exactly half of the mattress.
So Happy Together
If you want to stay close to your partner while enjoying a different level of firmness, you have options! Remember, when you sleep well, you love well. Achieving the ultimate in customizable comfort is a fantastic way to keep the fires of love and appreciation burning for years to come!
