A Complete Guide To King Size Mattress Protectors

If you want your mattress to last for several years and offer you the best value for your money, you should invest in a mattress protector. A mattress protector will ensure that your mattress is protected from spills, dirt and sharp objects, helping it significantly increase its lifespan.

Finding the right mattress protector can be difficult, especially if you have a king-sized mattress. The Quilt & Pillow Factory ensures you get the finest king-sized mattress protector for your mattress, by creating the most comfortable sleeping experience possible.

In this article, we’ve compiled a list of suggestions on how to select a king-size bed mattress protector for your mattress that will fit perfectly, be of the highest quality and is reasonably priced.

What is a mattress protector?

A mattress protector is an additional mattress layer that is placed on top of a mattress and placed under the bed sheet. Due to its light padding and modest cover, it serves to protect the mattress without compromising its comfort. A mattress protector, which is thinner than a mattress topper, is made to cover a mattress with a layer of durable, lightly cushioned cloth.

Types of Mattress Protector


There are three main types of mattress protector designs to be aware of:

Zippered – These mattress covers are fully closed and include zippers that can be used to cover and enclose the entire mattress, with safety and protection.

Elastic Strap: Investing in a mattress protector with an elastic strap enables you to easily remove the cover and completely cover the mattress around all four corners of your bed.

Fitted – Similarly to a fitted sheet, these mattress covers slide onto the corners and edges of your mattress. However, they are also removable for washing purposes or for you to change your bedding.

Things To Keep In Mind Before Purchasing Mattress Protector King Size.

  • Size

Never underestimate the importance of carefully matching the size of your mattress cover to your mattress. This will not only make it more comfortable to fit but will also maintain it firmly in place and prevent slippage while you sleep.

  • Material and Thickness.

Your mattress protector’s thickness plays a role in determining how protective it is. To ensure you’re buying something useful, be sure to check the thickness and material. It will be easier to wash and replace your mattress cover if you choose an easy-care fabric, which will help to offer longer-lasting support. A cotton king-sized mattress protector is thick and the best material to choose.

Choose Mattress Protectors That Are:

  • Waterproof: The best waterproof mattress protector can help you save your mattress from any spill or stain damage. A waterproof king-size mattress protector is made of waterproof material, allowing you to use your mattress easily without having to worry about any damage.
  • Anti-allergens: If you are or have a family member that is sensitive to dust and other particles, such protectors can be of great use. This can give added protection and keep dust away from your matters.
  • Temperature Control: A unique cooling mattress protector is a terrific option if you’re one of the many people who become too hot at night. They are typically composed of breathable cotton, which helps to control body temperature as you sleep. It also can help stop perspiration from interfering with your ability to wake up in the middle of the night allowing you to properly rest.
Should you invest in a mattress protector?

A mattress protector will safeguard your mattress from severe damage while costing less than 10% of the price of your mattress. Red wine spills and other stains can be prevented from permanently damaging mattresses as these protectors offer optimum protection and increase the life span of your mattress significantly.
