Double queen beds for an old married couple contemporary bedroom

Double queen beds for an old married couple

One of the stranger requests I have been given was to design a custom "double Queensized" bed. The client’s requested a special bed that would allow each to have their “own” bed and comforters, yet still be together… So we created a large platform bed with 2 queen mattresses inset into the platform, each on it’s own control for adjusting firmness. The master suite was enormous in size, so in order to make it more intimate, we installed a remote curtain that separates the sleeping quarters from the sitting area.

? - Is that two full beds? You know, I'm thinking that wouldn't be so bad if you have the room. Lol

How does one go about finding a bed frame for a split king? - I have 2 twin mattresses, both tempurpedic with separate adjustable bases, and am looking for an economical headboard/footboard bedframe, preferably upholstered. Have been all over the internet, no luck. Please help - Any suggestions?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Super-size Your Design
Bed. Sleep in style and comfort with a super-sized bed. In this particular example, the designer created a custom bed by building a large platform and topping it with two queen-sized mattresses. Say goodbye to midnight kicks — you're on your own with the snoring!
Shawn Gauthier added this to The Bed: Supersize It
One way to get around an early morning kick in the shins: The extra-large bed created from two doubles, each with its own set of linens. Okay, maybe you can’t stretch your legs to Timbuktu in this version, but at least you and your partner can still sleep “together” while still in your own spaces.
Interior designer Tracy Murdock met a client's request to design a custom double queen-size bed with this bedroom setup. She says, "The clients requested a special bed that would allow each of them to have their own space yet still be together, so we created a large platform bed with two queen mattresses on the platform, each on its own control for adjusting firmness." Show us: Are you part of this growing "live-apartner" trend? Do you and your partner keep separate bathrooms, living spaces, sleeping quarters or homes? If so, please post a picture in the Comments section and tell us about it. Your space could appear in a follow-up feature on Houzz.
