If you like the space that a king-sized bed gives you but don’t want to spend the money for one, you may be able to buy two cheap twin beds and convert them into a king-size. There are several kits on the market that let you seamlessly combine two twins into a king-size bed. Since king-size mattresses come with twin-size box springs, there's not much difference in buying two twin beds and combining them with an easy kit.

  1. 1

    Buy a converter kit, which pulls together two twin beds to easily create the size of a king-size mattress.

  2. 2

    Lay out the twin bed frames and mattresses side by side in the king-size bed frame.

  3. 3

    Place the supplied Velcro belt around the two twin-size mattresses to hold them firmly together. Secure the provided buckle around the Velcro so the belt stays in place.

  4. 4

    Position the plush centre strip down the middle of the twin-sized mattresses, which will cover the crack to provide a seamless feeling to the mattresses. Attach the centre strip to the Velcro belt to keep it in place.

  5. 5

    Cover the mattresses with a protective or memory foam cover, if desired. Then, add a king-size fitted sheet over the bed to create the appearance of a king-size bed rather than two twin mattresses.

  6. 6

    Make the bed with the top sheet, and cover with king-sized duvet. To further hide the twin-mattresses, place a valance around the bottom of the mattresses.
