With so many options available, it’s easy for one person to select the right mattress to suit his or her sleeping preferences. But when a couple has differing preferences, it can be tough to find a bed that will make both partners happy. You and your significant other may need to compromise.  

Select the right size mattress. 

Couples tend to prefer larger mattresses. If you’ve been having trouble sleeping because your partner is a restless sleeper who ventures onto your side of the bed, it’s definitely time to invest in a bigger mattress. Queen and king are ideal sizes for most couples. However, if one or both of you are quite tall, a California king might work best. 

Discuss the ideal mattress filler. 

Before you can agree on the right type of mattress, you need to understand the specific differences in your sleeping preferences. Perhaps one of you is a restless sleeper who wakes the other one up with constant movements. A memory foam mattress would work well, since it virtually eliminates movement transfer. But what if the other partner prefers the stability of an innerspring instead of the cushioning comfort of a memory foam? A good compromise could be a hybrid bed that features an innerspring base with a memory foam topper. 

Push two different beds together. 

When it just isn’t possible to compromise on a mattress selection, the best solution might be to purchase two twin beds. Each of you can choose the bed that best suits you. You could still use a king-size bedframe. A twin mattress is 38 inches wide and a king mattress is exactly double that width, which means both mattresses should fit on a king-size frame.
