The standard king size bed size measures at a precise 6 feet 6 inches (200cm) in length, and 5 feet (150cm) in width - which means they can fit any of our king size mattresses. However, you have to be wary of the king size bed dimensions depending on the materials used, the type of king size bed frame, and whether it has a headboard or not as these can make the overall frame slightly bigger. When choosing your king size bed, always check the specific length and width measurements displayed on the product page to ensure it will fit. You may also want to check the height measurement as well, to ensure your new king size bed frame doesn’t interfere with any light switches, dado rails or windowsills. When checking king size bed dimensions against the space available in your bedroom, don’t forget to measure hallways and staircases too, to make sure your new king size bed frame will make it safely to its new home.
The main benefit of a king size bed is that it offers extra space to stretch out, being both longer and wider than a double bed. King size bed frames are ideal for couples, as well as families with young children or pets who tend to climb into bed with them, but can also make great beds for solo sleepers who like to stretch out at night.
In theory, you don’t need a huge bedroom for a king size bed - as long as you can leave around 50-55cm of space around both sides and the end of the bed, you should be able to move around quite easily. Going by these measurements, a bedroom of 3m x 3m should happily fit a king size bed - however, you also have to account for doors opening, and any other bedroom furniture, like bedside tables, wardrobes and dressing tables.
A king size bed is both longer and wider than a double bed, with a king size mattress giving you an extra 12 inches (30cm) in width, and 6 inches (15cm) in length. This can make quite the difference, especially for a couple sharing a king size bed. For even more space, you might consider a super king size bed, which can offer even more space in width than a king size bed.
