Benefits Of A King Size Mattress
Normally this king size mattress, just like any other mattress, would be placed on top of a bed platform to raise it higher than the ground. Or alternatively in some urban houses, this mattress can be put straight on to the floor. The bed on which this king size mattress is placed would usually be very large, and in fact is the largest in all the sizes of beds.
The Various Types and Sizes
A king size mattress these days can be found in many forms of support systems, which include air, water, foam or springs. Generally there are four types of king size mattresses, which are king, California king, super king, and grand king. Of the four, only one, the king, can be found outside the Northern America and Europe. All three except super king can generally be found in any store selling mattresses countrywide.
A typical king size mattress is 76 inches wide and 80 inches long in the United States and Canada. In Europe, this mattress is slightly smaller, which is 60 inches wide and 75 inches long. In other parts of the world, mainly Asia, this mattress has the dimension of 72 inches wide and 78 inches long.
The next one in size is California King Size mattress. This mattress is limited to United States and Canada only. It typically is 72 inches wide and 84 inches long.
Another king size mattress which is limited to the Northern America only would be the grand king. As the name would suggest, this mattress is indeed the grandest, meaning the largest of them all: 80 inches wide and 98 inches long.
Super king is the final type of king size mattress. This mattress is, however, only limited to Europe and not available even in the United States. Slightly smaller than the California king, it is 72 inches wide and 78 inches long, which is the same as the Asian King size mattress.
The large width and length of this mattress is very convenient for tall people, especially the Americans and Europeans in general. The thickness makes this mattress last very long as well. Indeed, the main benefit of the king size mattress is the size.
