How does a California king mattress differ from a normal king mattress?

The main difference between a California king mattress and a king mattress are the dimensions. The California king is 72 inches wide and 84 inches long, while the standard king is 76 inches wide and 80 inches long. This means the standard king has slightly more surface area. For that reason, a normal king mattress might make the room look slightly smaller, but at the same time it provides slightly more space and comfort. There is typically no cost difference between the two types and this is also the case at Saatva.

Is a California king mattress better than a normal king?

There is no right answer to this question because it depends on the person that will be using the mattress. A California king mattress is a really great option for people who are taller because of the four inches of extra length. If you are worried about the bed not being long enough, you should strongly consider getting a California king mattress. If this is not an issue, a standard king might be the best option. One disadvantage to a California king mattress is that standard king size sheets may not fully fit the California king. It might therefore be a little harder to find good sheets for your bed if you buy a California King mattress. Ultimately, the choice is up to you, but the California king is a really great option if you need a lot of surface area to sleep on and you are taller than average.
