We will also cover some special king mattresses that are not assembled when you buy them brand new.Mattresses that will make transportation and mobility in tight turns and cramped stairways a problem of the past. This raises the of what to do with a regular king mattress: What Kind Of King Mattresses Can You Bend?
Types of King Mattresses that can be BentOf course we always recommend verifying with the retailer or manufacturer the mattress came from but for the most part any all foam or all rubber mattresses. Examples that are extremely flexible and mobile are:
King mattresses that can taken apart and assembled in the bedroom
Various types of beds fit this bill. These are king size beds that come not assembled. Pieces come in smaller more manageable boxes or bags making them light weight, versatile, and extremely easy to move in tight spaces. Mattresses that fit this bill:
Air Beds: Sleep Number Beds /Select Comfort, Comfort Air etc.
Modular Bed Kits: Bed in a Box, Sterling, Savvyrest, Land and Sky etc.
Waterbeds: Softside Waterbeds and Hardside Waterbeds
Coil Spring Mattresses (Caution Read Details Below)
Regular King Mattresses with coils can fit. How?
By king packing, King packing is putting 2 twin extra-long mattress sets on a king steel bed frame. Twin extra longs on twin bed frames can also be put together and connected with a swing hinge kit. 2 traditional twin sets will also work, however they will be 5 inches shorter than a king making it a little uncomfortable for taller people who may hang off the end of the bed.
Futon Mattresses that are Spring-less
If you can find a king futon mattress you probably can bend it. Spring-less futon models are made with layers cotton and foam and are designed to fold up into a sofa or use in the flat position as a mattress. While personally it is not my first choice to sleep on these are really versatile beds.
Assembled Mattresses like Memory Foam an Latex
Your indulging in comfort when you sleep on memory foam or latex rubber mattresses and not only that but you can bend them. Hybrid versions that mix the two materials are quite flexible as well as long as it doesn’t contain coil springs. Folding these mattresses in half for a quick trip up the stairs may not seem like fun, but it sure beats an old school coil spring model that won’t bend, flex, or fit where you need it to.
Air Mattresses, Waterbeds, and Modular Bed Kits make for the most mobile mattresses available.
You can only truly appreciate the versatility of a mattress that can be taken apart and reassembled without having to lug a big heavy awkward mattress around, and all the mattresses we just mentioned above make this possible. While they may not be mainstream choices people who own them not only appreciate their state of the art comfort and support, but also know the ease of carrying a mattress inside or upstairs a piece at time. This makes Air Mattresses, Hardside and Soft Side Waterbeds, and Modular Bed Kits the most mobile and easiest of beds to carry and move around once they are taken apart. Whether you are in an apartment or have a room that is up a few flights of stairs or you simply have a low overhang or very tight turn these are a great alternative for people who move a lot, don’t know where their going to be living or just want an easy to move king size mattress.
