Why Upsize To Super King Quilt For A King Mattress?
If you have a King mattress, then we highly recommend upsizing to a Super King quilt. It will help you enjoy a more comfortable sleep. Firstly what’s Super King? It’s the largest possible bedding size available in Australia. There’s nothing bigger —thus, if you’re looking for the largest quilt, Super King should be your choice.
Let’s give you a clear picture of the differences by going through the measurements of each.
King Size bed —usually the largest standard bed size in Australia. And it’s dimensions are 183cm x 203cm
King Size quilt —measures at 245cm x 210cm
Super King bed —typically measures at 270cm x 240cm
As you can see, the Super King quilt is larger than the King size by about 30cm length and width wise. This will give an extra approx. 15cm on each side —which will make a big difference to your comfort levels! It also gives an optimal amount of length on each side for a made-up bed that will make it look sleek and modern.
Benefits Of Upsizing
In most cases —if you’re unsure which way to go —upsize. It will provide many benefits! Choosing one size up from your bed mattress will give you a calmer and more relaxed sleep. Here are a few more advantages.
- Greater warmth during the night with a more substantial quilt cover. The heavier weight will prevent cool air from entering.
- The extra width of the quilt in relation to the mattress allows for greater overhang. Creating a luxurious appearance with a lengthier drape.
- Gives you more options when it comes to styling your bedding.For a super sleek look, it will allow you to tuck the edges of your quilt under your mattress.
- If sharing your bed with a partner, upsizing ensures there’s plenty of quilt for everyone.
Tip For Super King Quilts
Now that you’ve decided to choose a Super King quilt, there’s something to keep in mind. It also depends on your personal preference. Typically the greater the size of the quilt, the greater its weight. So pay close attention to the quilt filling if you don’t like it to be too heavy. The most popular varieties for Super King tend to be down quilts or mid filling quilts for this reason. Given the larger size, warm air pockets are easily trapped in the quilt providing great warmth. Disregarding the need for heavy quilts (i.e. 600gsm wool quilt) to provide extra warmth, unless you prefer a heavy blanket.
