Split King Sheets 101: Everything You Need To Know

If you’re wondering what the difference is between a standard king size sheet set and a split king sheet set you’re not alone. A common question we receive is from those looking to understand the difference between the two. Keep reading for everything you need to know about Split king sheet sets. 

King Sheets vs. Split King Sheets

A standard king-size sheet set is made to fit a standard king size bed, usually 76 inches wide by 80 inches long. King-size bed sheets include one fitted sheet sized to fit the standard mattress, as well as one flat sheet and pillowcases.

A split king bed is two twin-size mattresses put together to form a king-size bed. Each twin sized mattress is typically 38 inches wide by 80 inches long. Because the mattresses are separate it is important to invest in a split king sheet set to properly fit. Split king sheet sets come with two fitted sheets for each of the twin-size mattresses, as well as a single flat sheet that covers the span of both mattresses and pillowcases. 

Why Are Split King Beds and Sheets Growing in Popularity?

Due to the flexibility and many benefits they offer, split king beds are becoming an extremely popular choice with mattress manufacturers and for consumers looking to invest in a new mattress. Whether it’s a standard split king bed or an adjustable split king bed, there are many benefits that make them a great option. 

Perfect For Couples With Different Sleep Styles 

With our busy lifestyles getting a good night’s rest is more important than ever and consumers like the idea of being able to have a customized sleep experience while still getting to sleep with their significant other. Split king mattresses allow couples to decide how firm or soft their side of the bed is and prevents disturbing motion transfer when your significant other rolls over or gets out of bed. 

Resolves Common Sleep Problems

With advantages in technology and manufacturing many mattress manufacturers are coming up with cutting edge and innovative adjustable split king mattress designs. Many of the latest designs are created to be extremely comfortable as well as to resolve common sleep issues such as back problems, snoring, acid reflux, insomnia, and circulation problems.
