Bed size standards vary around the world. Not only are the names of the standard sizes sometimes different but even beds and mattresses with the same name can have different measurements in different countries. Even within a single country different manufacturers interpret the "standard" bed sizes differently. Some might shave a couple of inches off to reduce cost, others add a little for comfort. Those few inches can make a lot of difference.Beds are usually labeled according to the dimensions of the mattress - the actual measurements of the bed itself might be a little wider and/or longer. A Standard King is also called an Eastern King and a California King is also called a Western King. A Standard King is about 4" wider and a California King is 4" longer.
A sleigh bed will make your queen size look even larger than it already is. Not only does this frame look comfortable, the curled ends make the bed much more elegant. But not all bed frame sleigh beds have curled ends. The term sleigh bed means that the bed sits inside a head board and foot board unlike most other bed frames that are just a head board.
But double beds aren"t for small spaces only. If you"ve got a large room and you want it stylish, two doubles are a good alternative to bunk beds or the usual queen or king beds. Place a large and eye-catching headboard or artwork at the center of your room"s main wall. Put a night table below the headboard or artwork. Place your two beds on either side of the table. This will be the focal point of your room. You can work your accessories and all the other décor around this centerpiece.
Another name for a panel bed is a platform bed. These beds are simple and do not have a box spring to hold the mattress in place but a frame instead and are found mainly in the cultures of Asia and Europe. In fact, there are four main types and these are: the Asian, Modern, Zen and metal, wood, leather and a combination type. The differences are mainly in the material that is used to make the bed and how elaborate it is.
