Sleepless in Singapore: The Challenges
It is a known fact that adults in Singapore abide to the culture of working hard and majority are no strangers to working late. Singaporeans therefore tend to spend longer hours working than exercising or resting due to the competitive office culture. This makes the few hours of sleep a night to be of even greater importance in this country. To ensure a good night’s sleep one must have a enough space for themselves, comfortable surface and the right temperature. When one has a sizable portion to sleep in, they can rest better and this is especially true for couples who sleep together. For partners any movement made by the other can disrupt their own snooze and wake them up on a queen sized bed.

But, for partners or couples that live together in a normal sized house, personal space while sleeping is vital so that each person is completely rested for the next day. And this can only be achieved through owing a king size mattress.
Small children usually like to cuddle with their parents especially if they’re scared or if someone’s sick. On a standard queen, caring for sick child in the same bed means one partner sleeping on the sofa by morning time because there is insufficient room for 2 parents and 1 child in a queen size bed. It usually has 60 in width so each partner gets 30 in to sleep in, a child will just won’t fit through the night.

A king size can give ample space during those hard times and ensure each person gets a good night sleep.
