For Couples Only: 4 Reasons You Need a Bigger Bed
It is said that on the average, humans spend about a third of their lives sleeping, or attempting to do so. Bearing that in mind, you’ll agree that a comfortable bed is not a luxury, but an absolute necessity. Although you might not actively think about this, but sleeping on a small bed can affect the quality of sleep you get (especially you sleep in the same bed with your partner).
Here are a few pointers to the fact that you need a bigger bed:
1. You regularly bump into your partner as you sleep
According to the Sleep Council UK, the average person turns about 60 -70 times every night. So if you regularly bump into your partner as he/she turns around at night, then you probably need the extra space a bigger mattress will give you.
2. You have children
If you have young children who enjoy the comfort of sleeping in the same bed as their parents, then you’ll definitely want a bigger sized bed to avoid the resulting poor sleep.
3. Your partner takes all of the blankets
If you and your partner share one blanket, and you frequently wake up to find the entire blanket wrapped around your partner, then this is a sure sign that you need a bigger bed. If your partner tends to toss and turn during the night, the blankets easily get wrapped around them when you sleep on a smaller bed than you should.
4. The disturbance factor
If your partner turns around a lot, or sleeps in the ‘starfish position’, then the extra space will definitely come in handy for your own convenience. With a bigger bed, the movement of your partner is contained, so you’re less likely to feel the disturbance of your partner shifting around. This will help you sleep more comfortably on your side of the bed.
While cuddling with your partner can be really special, sometimes you just need some additional space to enjoy better and more comfortable sleep. This is confirmed by ergonomic studies quoted by the UK Sleep Council, which show that couples sleep better in a bigger bed.
