A king size bed frame and mattress will provide you much more room to spread out when lying down or going to sleep. The go-to option for couples, a king size bed frame is the size of two twin XL frames. It is by far the most comfortable sleeping option for couples. Also, if you tend to have kids or pets sleeping with you, there is extra room for them as well.
