Mattress Sizes



With two sizes of King beds and four names, it can get confusing when you go shopping for a King Size Bed.
A Standard King is also called an Eastern King and a California King is also called a Western King.
A Standard King is about 4" wider and a California King is 4" longer.

Standard King or Eastern King beds are about 16" wider than a Queen bed and the same length. A King size bed is sold with two box springs or frames and one mattress. This makes it easier to move.
Overall dimensions: 76" wide x 80" long


California King or Western King beds are 12" wider than a Queen and 4" longer. This is the longest bed commonly available in stores and is the best choice for tall people. Like the Eastern King, the California King bed set comes with one mattress and two half-width box springs to be more manageable when moving. Very tall single people can sleep from corner to corner and still be comfortable.
Overall dimensions: 72" wide x 84" long
