Instructions

  1. 1

    Place one twin mattress on the king-size frame.

  2. 2

    Place the second twin mattress on the king-size frame. Push the second mattress tightly against the first one. Both mattresses should be laying parallel and lengthwise on the bed frame.

  3. 3

    Seal the twin mattresses together and conceal the space between the mattresses, using a bed bridge. You do not have to use a bed bridge and can get by fine without one.

  4. 4

    Place a mattress topper over the mattresses to further conceal the crack between the mattresses, hold the mattresses together, and add more comfort to the bed. You can use a twin bed connector mattress topper, which is made specifically for combining two twin mattresses.

  5. 5

    Put the sheets and other bedding on the bed. Finish making the bed.

Tips and warnings

  • If you don't have a king-size bed frame, use two twin bed frames as long as the bed frames fit flush together and the crack between the beds is hardly noticeable.
