I sleep with four dogs in my bed.
Let’s just get that clear right off the bat, since I know some pet owners are really against sleeping with their animals. Many think it’s unsanitary and often don’t get a rested sleep when pets are allowed on the bed. Granted, I barely move from my sliver on the edge of the mattress, and my dogs get 89.5% more space on the mattress than I do, but I like having them there, keeping me warm.
They look pretty comfy too.
Plus, new studies suggest sleeping with pets actually makes for a better night’s sleep.
We have a California king size bed, which is six feet wide. Once we upgraded to that bed from a queen we felt like we had a lot more room to sleep comfortably. Until now.
The Ace Collection is a bed company that has manufactured a giant mattress and bed frame that spans 12 feet across.
The bed was specifically designed to fit even the largest of families in the same bed. It made its first supersize bed five years ago when a client requested a sleeping solution big enough to fit all of her children simultaneously. The result is the Ace Family Size mattress, which measures in at a whopping 144 inches wide and 80 inches long; for reference, a queen-size mattress is just 60 inches wide and a king-size mattress is 76 inches.
The sprawling Ace Family Size mattress, which is available in soft, medium, or firm, is bigger than most starter apartments, so you’ll need a spacious bedroom to accommodate it.
But all I see is more space for pets…
The Ace mattress comes in three giant sizes: the Ace Size, Ace Player Size, and the Ace Family Size with prices ranging from$2,250-$4, 054 depending on size and firmness. They also sell hypoallergenic 200-250 thread count bedding, from flat sheets to pillow cases to duvets, in order to fit their extra-wide beds.
While the bed is getting attention because of the family co-sleeping debate (“There’s no way to keep the sleep environment safe in an adult bed,” says Dr. Eve Colson via WebMD), this could be the perfect solution to the pet owner who has multiple fur babies but needs more sleeping space.
Lots of pet owners are like me and love sleeping with their furry friends.
But, what if you’re considering this massive bed for your human family?
While the idea of having an endless amount of personal space to sprawl out away from your partner may sound tempting, this huge bed may not be the marriage-saver that it seems. According to a 2014 study by the University of Hertfordshire, couples who slept just an inch apart tended to be happier than those who slept 30 inches apart. So… what does it mean if you and your spouse sleep 76 inches apart?
