How do you convert a queen size bed to king size?
If you would like to convert a queen size bed to king size, you don’t (necessarily) need to purchase a new mattress. It’s possible to turn two existing twin mattresses into a king by using a quality mattress topper. This is especially useful when you already own a queen bed and want more sleeping space.
I happen to love my guest room bed. It’s a pretty queen size iron bed that I purchased from Bombay Company years ago. Since I am a pragmatic person that prefers to make a good furniture purchase that will last many years, I didn’t want to donate the bed out of my house when I wanted a king size mattress. What to do? I already had two twin size mattress that were kicking around in the basement storage room, going unused. Time to get creative and figure out a way to marry the two.
Is it possible to convert?
Did you know that two twin size mattresses do not equal the dimensions of an American king mattress? Yes. It’s true!

I know this will be a game changer for those that want to give their kids and significant others a comfortable and roomy place to sleep. You won’t break the bank on this project either.
