How to decorate bedroom with king-size bed

Have you been looking for a perfect and comfy king size bed to transform your bedroom? It would be best if you considered redesigning your bedroom to accommodate a king-sized bed. King size beds come in two different sizes and are referred to by four different names. You should be aware of the architectural structure of your house such as the positioning of windows, vents and doors and the size of the room to decide upon the king-size bed that will fit your room while leaving enough space to move around easily. Double beds come in different sizes - twin beds (39”x 75”), full beds (54” x 75”), queen beds (60”x80”), California Queen beds (60”x84”), king beds (76”x80”) and California King beds (72”x84”). In this article, we will walk you through the variance between Eastern and Western sized King beds and guide you through buying the best suitable king-size bed for your room. Check out the wide range of  Nilkamal King Size beds  to choose the one that serves your style and purpose.

Different Names of King-Sized Beds:

A king-sized bed can be referred to by different names in different parts of the world. Namely:

  •         Eastern King
  •         Standard King
  •         Western King
  •         California King

Both Eastern King and Standard King measure 76’’ wide and 80” long. The Californian King and the Western King are of the same size: 72” wide and 84” long. The ensemble beds come in moveable backrests and side tables in a low upholstered frame that can serve as seating stools and allow you the liberty to move around the bed while it is placed against the wall.

The standard king size bed is a popular  king-sized bed.  It is basically two twin-sized beds pushed together. However, the California King Size bed is meant to serve the comfort of taller people who measure more than six feet. But the width is not as much as compared the Standard King size bed. The extra four inches added to the bottom ensures a super comfortable night’s sleep for taller people but the 4 inches taken from the width can pose a drawback.


Room Size Requirements for A King-Sized Bed:

As suggested by experts, the minimum room size required for a Standard King Size Bed to fit in is twelve feet by 9.10 feet. This will ensure that your room has an extra 30 inches of space to move around the bed. A bedroom which is 19 feet by 14 feet is capable of perfectly holding a king-size bed, two nightstands on both sides of the bed, a TV stand, a dresser, a love seat and an ottoman. On the other hand, a bedroom which is smaller with dimensions of 12 feet by 12 feet has the capacity of holding a king-sized bed along with two nightstands with a dresser. However, this is just the minimum size recommendation. You can go for your preference as per your budget. 

A king-size bed and a king-size mattress will consume a much bigger space in your room. You may be purchasing a platform bed which hugs the mattress and is the size expected. Moreover, if you are looking for  king size bed  that a storage facility and drawers accompany, it will add to the total dimension of your bed. Therefore, there is no specific dimension to rely upon when you are buying a king-sized bed.

While placing the bed, you need to ensure that it is not blocking any architectural elements like windows, vents or doors in your room. You should also ensure that there is enough space to move around the bed even after the installation. 

There is a common misconception about double bed mattresses being of the same size as a King Sized bed. But their dimensions differ greatly. While a standard double bed is mostly 4.6 feet wide and 6.3 feet long, a Standard King Size bed is 5 feet wide and 6.6 feet long. It is important that you thoroughly know the difference between a king-size bed and a double bed to avoid confusion while buying a suitable bed for your purpose.

Many top mattress manufacturing industries offer numerous  high-quality mattresses  to fit your king-size bed. This ensures that these mattresses fit your king size bed perfectly, even if you do not have prior knowledge about buying mattresses

The King bed along with moveable backrests and two in-built floating side tables is a perfect solution to buying a King-size bed if you are not sure about the measurement of your room. You can easily push the bed into the corner and move the tables and backrests aside to save space whenever you need to. It is hard to assume which King size bed will fit your bedroom unless it is a very spacious room. You should measure the bedding area with tape, including the frame and mattress. You should also measure the extra space apart from the bed area. Look out for covering doors, windows and vents which may come in contact with the bed. Arrange your other pieces to see how much space will be left after the bed is placed. It is always recommended to look for king beds with storage so that you can utilize the space your king-sized bed has already occupied. If you are not sure about your measurement of your king-size bed dimensions, you can seek help from a professional virtual furniture planner online. There are many options and guidelines for free to help you place your new measured king bed into your perfectly measured out bedroom.


If you bring your king-size bed home and find less space than measured, perhaps you can use your walls for storage.


There is no hard and fast rule to measure the required space to place your king-sized bed in your bedroom. Follow the guideline and pick your favourite  king-size bed,  dressers and nightstands from  Nilkamal  to transform your home decor.
