What is a King Size Bed ?

King size beds are the standard big bed that most of us has seen parents using throughout our childhood. As the real estate started to shrink the size of properties, furniture in general started to shrink as well, and then came the queen size beds as well as full, a slightly larger version of the twin size that is usual for kids and teenagers. On the other hand, the California King size is a generously wide standard that was still a thing in the market for wealthy people or all those lucky enough to have large bedrooms.

King size bed though are still the preference for couples that have grown tired of Queen sized structures or need more room when children start to count on the equation of needed space on bed, for those sneaky arrivals in the middle of the night. The official king size bed dimensions are 183 cm by 203 cm or 72 inches by 80 inches (height is not a determinant constant) and will vary from bed to bed.

What the best King Size Bed must have?

Since these beds are larger, they are supposed to endure heavier loads of weight, so is ideal that the bed frame of the king size bed is made of a generous amount of slats or has a spring box, because the usual mattress for this kind of bed is also heavy as we have seen, comprising several layers.

On the other hand, spring boxes are a matter of how much space you need under the bed, if you have any interest. When that free slot storage is desired, you will see there are enough options in the market and they may make the bed somehow a bit too much taller for some people, otherwise you can opt for the narrow designs and let go of the free storage.

This is very personal so is up to your needs.

But most importantly is the fact the bed platform is sturdy enough and of course, fit to your taste.

What is the best place to buy a king size bed?

While bed platforms are always nice to be found live and be seen with your own eyes and tried with your own body, you can easily rely on the convenience of online shopping for this too. Amazon for example has a huge market on beds, bed frames, mattresses and all you would need, so, for example, it is the best place to purchase a whole furniture kit like the one from the Prepac Sonoma bed as the official manufacturer sells their products through that online platform.

You will easily as well find detailed reviews from customers and check the rate of these products and what you should be aware on pros and cons about them. The customers community on Amazon is highly reliable specially because there are thousands of reviews and detailed experience reports.

Summing Up

King size beds are only behind the luxury, generous profile of California king, but they are big enough to have many different options in the market when it comes to design. Just stick to the plan to find sturdy, resistant beds and also optionally the ones that have an easier assemble method or at least include the option to be assembled by a professional of reference from the manufacturer.
