Advice From The Experts

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.

Frequently asked questions

  • Can you get a bigger bed than a super king?
    California beds are larger than a Super King bed with 202 cm in width and length. It is generally recommended for tall people.
  • What is the point of a California king bed?
    A California king mattress is primarily marketed towards tall people. It is for people who may feel cramped on a smaller mattress, even a standard king mattress. Therefore 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 California King can also cost more than similar bedding for a standard king mattress.
