I like using a king-sized quilt on my queen bed. I don't like using a dust ruffle at all. A king gives me just the right length of "drop" for my queen bed, as I don't like the quilt to hang too close to the floor. (I have a timed "night light" under the bed, like for short trips to the bathroom.) But also, the adjustable bed that I bought last year is significantly taller than a "regular" bed, and I have to use a little step-stool to get into the bed without straining. Yikes! (I have stayed at hotels where it was difficult to get UP into the beds!) So, I would need to measure very carefully to allow for height, and add even more inches to a "normal" king-sized quilt, if I wanted it to fall closer to the floor.
My bed at home is not all that tall. I'm 5 ft and can sit down with my feet touching. I just got back from a road trip and each motel I stayed at had beds that I had to climb to get up on!. Falling out could have caused some major damage.
I kind of wonder why they have gotten so tall.
I joked with DH that it's a plot against the elderly who are getting shorter in their senior years.
Well, mine is tall for a couple of reasons: (1) a taller mattress than I have ever had before; and (2) the mechanical workin's of the adjustable bed is under there, and the platform on which the mattress sits is tall. If I had it to do over again, I might not buy an adjustable bed after all. It's nifty and all, but not very easy to turn over when you fall asleep with the head elevated. If I want to turn to sleep on one side or the other, or if I want to simply get out of bed, I have to reach for the remote and push "flat" so I can do either one of those things. It's difficult to get leverage to move around or get out of the bed. I might rather have a "regular" flat bed again, but the massage feature is really nice. Ahhhhhhh!
Thanks for the info, good to know if ever decide to get a new bed.
Lol, while on my trip last week, we stayed in a B&B. Our bedroom had a poster bed so tall, that they provided a step that I had to use and still get upon my tip toes!
and the trip before that, had a tall bed! No step. So, I had to step on the wooden bed frame to climb in! I was glad we were only on that place for one night! We laughed that hubby was going to hav3to lif5 me into bed! Lol…
I wonder why they are making them so high.That how our bed was to.So when I move I said to Nathan I want a low one.
