First things first, what really is a Split King Bed and what’s the difference between Standard King Size and Split King Size; if you know this already you can skip to the next section; but if you don’t, A Standard King Size is a single mattress 76 inches wide and 80 inches long and a single fitted sheet covers the whole bed. However, in Split King Beds; two twin mattresses 48 inches wide and 80 inches long go on the cot and two different fitted sheets cover the two mattresses and then one single sheet that covers both the mattresses and additional pillowcases, of course.
How to put Sheets on A Split King Bed?
The task of putting up sheets on a bed does not necessarily have to be similar for every bed. However, putting up bed sheets on a split king does require some proper explanation on how to actually put it without much chaos. You don’t have to worry tho, we simplified the process for you.
- First of all, you’ll require two different bed sheets for your two twin king size mattresses. Make sure the dimensions of the sheets match the dimensions of the mattresses.
- Put up the separate bed sheets on your twin mattresses.
- Then, take the single king size bed sheet and cover one part of your split king bed with it.
- Now, take the other part of the sheet and place the elastic or the suspenders, depending on the type of the sheet, over the edges of the mattress so the bed sheet doesn’t move and remains firm on your bed.
And it’s done already!
Can I use Regular sheets on my Split King Bed?
Yes, you can. However, it would be a lot of work on your behalf to put it up on the two mattresses. Moreover, the sheet won’t remain firm on the two mattresses and would come off very easily and you’ll have to put it up again and again very often.
Also, the sheets would clutter up in between the two mattresses and will cause you to lose your sleep at night. That’s why you got to use sheets made for Split King Beds specially.
