Comfort, style, and size are the three most common features to look for in a bed. You can test the comfort by laying down on it, ask your family and friends, and ask questions online. But when it comes to size, how would you gauge the right size for your master bedroom? What would you choose, an Eastern King or a California King sized bed?
To help you choose the right size, compare the differences between the two bed size options. First, Eastern King is your typical king size mattress. But the California King size bed, or also called the Western King bed, is longer and narrower than the Eastern King. In terms of size, traditional king size mattresses are 76 inches wide x 80 inches long, while the California King is 72 inches wide by 84 inches long.
While king size mattresses are more common, the foremost reason that people love California king beds is their size. California king mattresses are perfect for those who want longer beds, or its width is just right for smaller rooms. California king mattresses also have a sense of exclusivity.
True enough, looking at the history of California King, the bed was first introduced to the market in the 1960s in Los Angeles, California, in the master bedrooms of the rich and famous. The bed that was first nestled in the luxurious mansions soon found its way in the international market and since then has competed against the standard king size mattress.
So, there you go. The dimensions are the major differences between Eastern King vs. California King. But whatever size you choose, the bed’s comfort should still land at the top of your list for considerations. Which will you choose?
