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.
One downside for choosing to buy a bed of the queen size is checking for the dimensions of the room. When you measure the bed, don"t forget to focus on the frame, not just the mattress. Frames are generally larger than the mattress. Not every house will have the same room measurements so you may have to take a look into other sizes to fit your bedroom.
The main focal point of any bedroom is the bed and bedroom furniture that"s associated with it. Depending on the grandeur and scale of the room you need to take a pick from which size suits you perfectly. The beds are broadly classified into king beds, queen beds, single beds and day beds. Apart from the beds, there is a whole range of accessories that can be coupled with the bed for a complete matching set or mix & match for an eclectic set of bedroom furniture that speaks about you. You can couple your bed with a nifty nightstand with drawers and a shelf or go for a beautiful chest of drawers.
Double beds are also known as full-size beds. It was the standard mattress size for couples until the early 1900s. Afterwards, couples prefer at least a queen-size bed or, better yet, a king-size for maximum comfort.
