What Is the Difference Between King Size and Eastern King Size Beds?
King size mattresses and beds often go by different names, depending on where you live. This can get confusing, but it’s critical to buy a bed that is the correct size for your mattress so that they fit together comfortably. Here’s what you need to know about the dimensions of common king size beds:
- King Size: This bed is designed to hold a mattress that is 80 inches wide and 80 inches long. It’s also called a Standard King.
- Eastern King: An Eastern King is just another name for king size, and the dimensions are the same: 80 inches by 80 inches.
- California King: This mattress measures 76 inches wide and 84 inches long, making it slightly narrower but longer than a Standard King. As the name suggests, it was popularized on the West Coast of the United States.
Bed frames go by the same sizing conventions as mattresses, so all you need do is buy a bed the same size as your mattress to ensure a good fit. The overall size of a king size bed will be larger than the dimensions above to account for the materials that surround the mattress, so keep this in mind as you plan your room’s layout.
Choosing the Right King Size Bed
When searching for a king size bed, consider what you want you room to look like. Wood beds provide a traditional, transitional or modern feel in your bedroom, while upholstered beds add softness and luxury.
You should also think about whether you prefer straight, clean lines or a curved headboard and round posts. It’s a good idea to choose a look you find restful when decorating a bedroom.
