Queen or King size bed?
150cm is ideally the minimum width for two people sharing (or) more if you're likely to be joined by dogs, cats and children.
A king size bed at 30cm, wider than a queen, requires considerably more space than some rooms allow.
It's advisable to measure properly, allowing enough space for unrestricted movement around your bed.
Why buy a mattress protector?
A good mattress protector forms an effective barrier, preventing moisture in the fabric, and at the same time allows the mattress to breath.
It will prevent soiling and deterioration of the fabric. It also promotes hygiene by making it difficult for dustmites to breed.
An abused, unsanitary mattress has no guarantee, so investing in a mattress protector is highly recommended.
