Dear Snooze Guru,
My wife and I live in the city, and our apartment is quite small. Our guest bedroom isn’t large enough to fit a very big bed, so we purchased a daybed with a pop up trundle. We figured that we could push the mattresses together so that when other couples visit, they can still enjoy a large sleep surface. The only trouble we’ve run into has been keeping the mattresses connected without creating a canyon or a sinking feeling where the two meet. Our friends, Diane and Todd, stayed with us last weekend and I could tell they didn’t have a comfortable night of sleep. Like at breakfast, I asked Todd, “Hey, how about the daybed?” and he just went, “Yeah, it was great.” and then I saw Diane flash him this look that was like, “Oh Todd, come on!” And then it got all quiet and my wife came into the room and I just gave her this look that was like, “Honey, this is awkward.” So after that, I want to make sure I find a better solution for our guest bedroom. Do you have any recommendations? Both the daybed and trundle mattresses are pretty soft.

Thank you for writing. It sounds like you made the best decision, given your space limitations. Pushing a daybed and trundle bed together creates a sleep surface that is almost as a large as a king size mattress, but if the two mattresses are not connected properly, you will lose comfort and support in the middle. The CKI Doubler Plush Mattress Connector is a quick and inexpensive way to make two mattresses feel and function like one. Its lofty foams and soft exterior make it the perfect choice for connecting two plush or pillow top mattresses.
