What is difference between a regular king and a California king mattress?
Jul. 01, 2023


The only difference between a regular king mattress and a California king mattress lies in their dimensions. Here's a breakdown of their sizes:

  1. Regular King Mattress: Also known as an Eastern King, a regular king mattress is the most common king-sized mattress available. It measures 76 inches wide by 80 inches long (193 cm x 203 cm). This type of mattress provides ample space for couples and is suitable for most bedrooms.

  2. California King Mattress: Also referred to as a Western King, a California king mattress is slightly longer and narrower compared to a regular king. It measures 72 inches wide by 84 inches long (183 cm x 213 cm). The additional length makes it a good option for taller individuals or those who prefer more legroom.

To summarize, the key distinction between the two mattress types is that a regular king is wider, while a California king is longer. It's important to consider your height, room size, and personal preferences when choosing between these two options.
