What is a Split Mattress?
POSTED ON October 03, 2017
One of the things that Bare Home is best known for is our specialty sizing. While our twin, full, queen, king and California king sheet sets are incredibly beloved, we have a special place in our hearts for the twin XL, full XL, split queen, split king and split California king sheet sets. The new trends in split mattress manufacturing allows for an incredible amount of variety for all kinds of sleep needs. This amazing opportunity can also cause a lot of frustration in shopping. Don’t fear though, Bare Home is here to help!
The most common questions we get from customers are about our split king sheet sets. What is a split king mattress? Split king sheet sets are made for beds that have two completely separated mattresses. These mattresses sit next to each other on a large frame. They are often adjustable at both the head and the foot, but may only move at the top. Each twin XL mattress in the split king generally measures 39 inches by 80 inches. Split king sheet sets contain two fitted sheets each measuring that 39 inches by 80 inches, a flat sheet measuring 108 inches by 102 inches to cover the whole bed and two pillowcases each measuring 20 inches by 40 inches. Replacing the fitted sheets for a split king is incredibly easy as each mattress can be replaced with a twin XL fitted sheet as needed.
Split California kings wary only slightly from the traditional split king. Each individual mattress measures 36 inches by 84 inches. The split California king sheet set includes two fitted sheets for each mattress, a flat sheet that measures 108 inches by 102 inches and two pillowcases each measuring 20 inches by 40 inches.
A lesser known size that is gaining popularity is the split queen mattress. A split queen bed works a lot like the split king. Two individual mattresses sit on the same large frame measuring 30 inches by 80 inches each. The split queen sheet set comes with two fitted sheets that fit each individual mattress, a flat sheet that measures 102 inches by 90 inches that covers the entire bed and two pillow cases that measure 20 inches by 30 inches each. We have recently added the split queen sheet sets to our microfiber collection and have already been asked by customers about expanding the line!
Split head mattresses are a little different than the rest of the split family. These mattresses share the foot of the bed but are separate and adjustable only at the head. Each sleeper can adjust their side individually only at the top of the bed. Though we hear the call loud and clear, Bare Home does not carry sheets for split-head mattresses just yet.
