Although a sofa bed is usually the common pick for a spare room, a king single is also a nice compromise, it’s in between a double and a single, it’s got the same length as a queen It’s affordable and provides better comfort for your guests!

It is actually common for parents to skip the toddler’s bed

Some parents skip the toddler’s bed and buy a king single instead. This purchase may seem excessive at first. However, a good quality mattress has a life-span over 10 years.

Perfect Size for Teenagers

A great night sleep for your teenagers could mean less grumpy mornings.
Premium quality mattresses come with a 10-year warranty. Imagine how much your child will grow in the span of 10 whole years. With potential growth spurts that your child might have, a king single is the best way to ensure that their mattress is the right size for their growing bodies (think of those cold feet during winter, and how bad this could be for their posture).


Don’t let your 14-year-old son over 6ft dangle his feet out the end of the mattress.
Consider investing in a king single instead of the single size. King single mattresses measure 107cm width and 203cm length. With an extra 15cm width and height compared to a single mattress, it providing ample room for a person of any size, even if they are tall and broad.

Most people don’t realise that a king single is the same length as a queen size mattress. The right mattress size needs 15cm extra length to the tallest person who will be sleeping in the bed.
