Do you need a special bed frame for a California king mattress?

I have a regular king bed frame but would like a larger mattress.


Answer by  damsellfly (93)

Yes, a special frame is needed for a California King mattress. At 72" wide by 84" long, it is 2" narrower and 4" longer than a standard King Mattress.


Answer by  LIZ13 (28)

A regular King bed has dimensions of 76" wide and 80" long, but a California king is longer and skinnier with dimensions of 72" wide and 84" long. So yes, you would need a new bed frame because otherwise the end of the matress would hang four inches over.

YES, Califronia King beds are very much larger than a regular King bed, before you get the frame measure to make sure you have room for all of it.

Some bed frames have an extension on the bottom to make it longer. the difference between a california kind and a regular king is only in the length.


Answer by  smith79 (129)

California King mattresses would need a special frame. Keep in mind that the only difference between a California King and a regular king bed is about 4" in length and are generally suggested for tall individuals. These mattresses also need larger fitted sheets than a regular king bed does as well.

Check your current frame first to see if it's adjustable in both width and length. If it isn't, then you will need to get a new frame to properly support the new mattress.
