Split Size Bed Sheets -vs- Split Head Bed Sheets?
Did you know that even though both of these sheet sizes are hard to find and although they sound very much alike, they are far from being the same size of sheet?
The “Split Size” bed sheet refers to a sizing that will accommodate a bed that is split completely down the middle. Essentially, this bed is made up of two separate units. For example, a split king size bed will consist of two units measuring approximately 38″ x 80″ each. You will need split king size sheets for this type of sleep system.
The “Split Head Size” bed sheet refers to a sizing that will accommodate a sleep system that is also split down the middle BUT does not completely separate. In other words, this type of sleep system is adjustable and split but only at the top portion of the bed. This size of sheet is also commonly referred to as a “Split Top” sheet. Both descriptions are used for this size of bedding.
Many higher end mattress manufacturers produce both the split size and the split top/head size sleep systems. Some of the better know brands are Tempurpedic, Comfortaire, Dormia & Natura.
Materials used for these luxury sleep systems can be anything from regular coiled mattresses to latex, memory foam & even organic wool fill. Whatever the make up of the bed, your sheets are an important part of your sleep system.
