My husband and I currently have a king sized bed. We've had it for a few years and at first we really loved it because when we bought it we had little ones that were always coming into bed. At one point both our boys were making their way into our bed during the night and so having the extra space was wonderful. Thing is that it never really fit well in our bedroom but at the time we were more than willing to give up the space. Now the kids are a bit older and while they do sometimes still come into bed it's only one of them at a time and usually they end up going back to their own beds before long, so the king sized bed really isn't a necessity as much. I find when we sleep at night I am so far away from my husband, we might as well be sleeping in separate beds. If I do go over and sleep near him I'm literally in the middle of the bed. I think if we downsized to a queen sized bed we would still have plenty of space, but I guess my question is, has anyone downsized and then realized that they were much happier before doing so? It'd really suck to buy a queen sized bed and get rid of the king only to find out we're not actually happy with it!
