This post is the fourth and last part of a series on the four most common mattress sizes—twin, double, queen and king—on the market. You can also read our entire Bed Sizes Canada: Mattress Dimensions and Size Guide.

Is your heart set on a King mattress?Whether you are moving into a new home or thinking of giving your bedroom a makeover, we understand you may have a lot on your mind. The king mattress, which runs about 6.33 feet x 6.67 feet in width and length, is best for couples who like to sprawl out or share their bed with kids (or pets—because hey, what furry friend wants to be left out?) Considering it’s 16 inches wider than a queen size bed, make sure your bedroom is fairly spacious and at least 144 square feet (12 x 12).

Looking for something even bigger? There’s the California king mattress, which is the longest mattress on the market. It’s four inches longer than the king mattress, making it ideal for taller individuals. However, keep in mind that while the king mattress is shorter, it’s actually four inches wider.

We hope we’ve answered all your burning questions about king size bed measurements and helped you understand your options. Although buying a mattress is a big investment, the good news is that it’s something that you shouldn’t have to worry about replacing for at least 15 years. So, it’s important that you take your time to find out what size is the best for you.

Apart from bedroom size, we also recommend you consider other factors—personal sleeping preferences, body size and budget—before making a decision. Keep in mind that with Silk & Snow mattresses, you don’t need to sacrifice support for size. Our mattresses are made with the same composition of materials within each model. This means you’ll get the same thickness, firmness, and support, regardless of size.

We’re committed to helping you sleep at your best, every single night.
