What Are the Benefits of Having an Oversized Bed?


Are you kidding? This is America, and bigger is in our blood! Bigger is always better, and when it comes to beds –  Nothing is bigger than The Family Bed by Taylor & Wells.


Families That Have Fun Together – Stay Together

The more quality time you spend with your family early on, the more cherished memories you create. Today, life is more fast-paced than ever, so you don't have a lot of time to create family moments.

Sharing mornings and having fun with everyone in the same bed on special occasions, weekends, and holidays will make memories that last a lifetime. Children grow up fast, and there are only a few special years. A Family Bed can help you make the most of them.




Movie Nights Are Family Bed Nights 

What's more fun than watching your family favorites with everyone in the same bed? Of course, no one can be allowed to eat crackers, but the more hot-buttered popcorn, the better. A giant bed and a giant screen make movies more fun than an old-fashioned drive-in. And the best part is that the kids get to wear pajamas, and so do you!

Here's a list of the Top 50 Family Movies. Have a popcorn taste test to see who comes out on top. Here's a list of the Best Microwave Popcorn. And if you're a purist, here's a list from Food & Wine showing the top popcorn machines you can keep right in your bedroom. 


Host a Pet-A-Palooza Festival

No matter how many pets you have, The Family Bed by Taylor & Wells is big enough for all of them AND your whole family. Everyone will love it – especially your furry friends. Can you imagine? The whole clan curled up, watching The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It's the kind of moment that brings to life the expression, "There's no place like home."

Let's Settle On Whose Bed Is the Biggest

In the world of mattresses, there are many pretenders to the throne. There's the Alaskan King, the Texas King, the Wyoming King, and even a California King. Each king stakes a claim to be the biggest. However, with so many kings running around, there can be only one emperor – The Family Bed by Taylor & Wells.

Is Your Bedroom Big Enough For a Family Bed?

Keep in mind some people replace their master bed with a Family Bed mattress and bed frame. In contrast, others use a Family Bed mattress to create a wall-to-wall bed in a spare bedroom, loft, or playroom. There are no hard and fast rules. It's really up to you and your family's imagination. 



Let's Be Honest – Need Has Nothing to Do With It

Who needs a bed as big as The Family Bed? Less than a generation ago, a queen-sized bed was thought of as a luxury, let alone a king-size bed. No one actually NEEDS a giant bed. In fact, when it comes right down to it, we don't NEED the powerful cars we drive or all the separate bedrooms, or the wildly capable computers we carry around in our pockets.

Yet, these and so many other possessions have become so important to us that we wouldn't think of living without them. Well, how many of these things can gather up everyone you love into one place?

Some families spend way more money on smartphones and enormous monthly plans. If you're going to live large or even extra large, why not do so with something the whole family can use to create some lifelong memories?




How To Find the Right Mattress And Bed Frame For You

If you dare, you can always try buying a mattress online, sight unseen. Please keep in mind if you don't like it for some reason, trying to get it rolled up and back in the box may take you back to high school wrestling class.

On the other hand, you can find a local sleep expert that will help you custom-design your sleeping solution. They help you figure out which type of mattresses, which level of firmness, and which bed frame would best match your sleep profile. It may take a little longer than just clicking online, but sleep is much too important to take lightly. 


Check the reviews ahead of time for the outlet you are thinking of visiting. What do their customers say about the beds, the staff, and the way they handle customer service? Google reviews and Yelp reviews are both useful sources. Remember, looking for high-quality customer service is just as important as finding a high-quality mattress.

Be prepared to ask them questions about the mattresses, delivery, set-up, and warranty they offer. Anything less than a 10-year warranty, and you may want to keep looking. Do they make their own mattresses, or are they simply re-selling? If they indeed make their mattresses, where do they make them?
