To our New Mexicans, what is up with the different king size bed mattresses?
Okay, so you are shopping around and browsing in our store for sizes for beds and mattresses, then you bump into either E. King or Cal. King. What exactly are these two and why are there two king sizes?
Here we will tell you the difference between these two furniture king mattresses.
California King Aka Western
This size is usually longer and less wide than the regular standard king size. It is 72 inches wide and 84 inches long. This size measures 6,080 square inches.
|72″ x 84″||6.0′ x 7.0′|
We definitely recommend these king size mattresses for taller people. If you are tall, then you definitely don’t want your feet hanging off the bed. This is the size you should go with. Remember that this bed is also a lot narrower than the regular king size bed.
Eastern King (Standard King)
This size is known for either the standard or eastern king. It measures 76 inches wide and 80 inches long. This bed is recommended if you want more space, because it is wider by four inches. This size measures 6,048 square inches.
|76″ x 80″||6′ 4″ x 6′ 8″|
What about Height?
Height varies for any mattress depending on the model, manufacturer and brand.
So what if you are 6′ 3″-6’6″?
The cal king is up to 7 feet in length, while the standard is up to 6 feet and 8 inches. It is recommended to get the cal king of course because it gives more space to stretch and sleep more comfortable.
Can I use the same bed sheets for both?
Simply, since they are both different sizes, you will need to buy different size bed sheets.
We also offer twin xl mattress, full mattress, twin mattress, queen mattress, king mattress. From foundation, quilted top, euro top, memory foam mattresses, pillow top, euro pillow top, tight top and canopy.
