California king size bed - Great choice for tall people
At 202 cm wide and 202 cm long, the California king bed is best suited to those that want extra space at the foot of the bed. Examples include tall people who find the length of a standard king not quite enough or if you have a pet who sleeps at the foot of your bed.
Note: Mattress thicknesses can differ greatly, but the average depth is between 25cm and 30cm. Please check the specifications of the mattress you are interested in, to ensure it suits your needs.

Advice from expert
To make sure your new bed is the perfect fit for your room,
check the dimensions of the room, doors, and stairs. This will
help you have a thoughtful plan to buy the right size bed and
easily move it into the assigned room
It's also important that mattress sizes vary from country to
country and from supplier to supplier. If you already have a
bed base or bed frame, make sure the new mattress is sized to
fit your bed frame.

A California king mattress is primarily marketed toward tall people. Such a person may feel cramped on a smaller mattress, even a standard king mattress. The extra 22cm ensure they aren't sleeping with their feet dangling over the edge
Is a California king bed too big?
With just one person, a standard king bed might be a bit too wide. On the other hand, a California king bed is still large but doesn't have a vast width for you to attempt to fill alone.
Are California king sheets hard to find?
Bedding accessories for a California king mattress—bed frame, box springs, sheets, and blankets—are more difficult to find than a standard king's. Bedding for a Cal king can also cost more than similar bedding for a standard king mattress.
