    Default Should we get a king size bed??

    We have a queen bed ATM and a very attached toddler! He likes to sleep with dh and I halfway through the night and there really isn't much room in our bed!
    The only thing is our bedroom isn't really that big compared to most masters.

    If you can afford to and it will fit then I would esp if you plan to have other kids. We only have a queen and we co sleep with our toddler. There is no room to invite our other kids in for a cuddle if they have a nightmare etc.

    We have a super-king size bed (and nothing else!) in our bedroom. I absolutely love it as hubby and I are hot and cold sleepers and not really cuddlers once we are asleep. We also have our 5 year old join us at some stage most nights and we all get a great nights sleep.

    Only downside is rarely are American king size or ultra king size sheets/quilts/doonas sold in Australia so I have to make them or wait for family/friends to bring them over.

    If i had 5k right now i would buy one. There is only myself and my 5yr old in my bed but he takes 3/4 of the bed while sleeping. I think we would both get a better night sleep if we had a bigger bed.

    I want a super king.

    I love our king bed. Well, loved.. It feels too small now.

    Our bedroom is teeny, 1/3 of our old bedroom. We just get the bed and drawers in. Very skinny around the sides.

    We only just upgraded ours 2 weeks ago. I thought it would be a lot bigger than it is, but to my surprise that extra space makes all the difference. DH and I have a lot more room now as DS usually ends up in bed with us. We got ours specially made for us - a MySide bed so that my side has a different firmness level to DH's. Really worth it and we got it on sale for $2,500 too, which isn't too bad. It's an ensemble too so that included the base.

    You could always buy a base off eBay and just a brand new mattress? Even fantastic furniture sell them cheap : )
