Despite their size, King-size beds can fit most medium-sized bedrooms and you may even fit them in a small apartment by choosing the right base such as a divan bed with additional storage capacity.
If you want to buy your king bed online, be sure to first measure the dimensions of your bedroom. We recommend an absolute minimum bedroom size of 2.9 x 3.05m (9'6" x 10'), with standard sizes for a king starting at 3.05 x 3.05m (10' x 10'). Please also consider that the recommended circulation space for your bed is 66-76cm (26”-30”) on each side (except for the headboard side which can be attached to the wall).
If you have a large enough bedroom for a 5’0” king sized bed, you will want to take a good night’s sleep in style. Depending on the decoration of your bedroom, you may choose one of the following:
If you want a comfortable king size bed which can be combined with traditional, contemporary, modern as well as glam decorations, an upholstered bed is the choice for you. Many upholstered beds already come with headboards attached to it, but there are also plain versions for which you can select your own choice of headboard style, fabric and stitching.
Wooden bed frames are an evergreen for the contemporary buyer. Most popular wooden bedframes are white king-sized bed frames which make a great design for a Scandinavian-inspired, contemporary, traditional or even modern bedroom. But solid oak king size bed frames are one of our all-time classics. Oak king size beds blend well in a bedroom with traditional, rustic or contemporary furniture. Oak wood bedframes typically come with slatted, open-frame or panelled headboards and are available in grey oak, light oak, oiled oak or solid natural oak.
If you want a simple and cheap bed frame for the guest room on the other hand, a basic metal frame is the right choice. But there are also very sturdy, high quality metal bed frames which serves as a base for your upholstered headboard of choice combined with a fitting slip cover.
A leather upholstered king size bed frame is the right option for you if you want to go for a luxurious and long-lasting bed frame.
King size bedframes are suited for standard size 5’0 mattresses only (150 x 200cm or 60” x 66”). Depending on your choice of bedframe, it may already come with a slatted base or in the form of a divan bed.
Slatted bases are mostly used with bedsteads which can be in different styles, including oak, wooden, metal or upholstered. They have the great advantage of air circulation and adjustable body support. The sprung slatted bed base is slightly curved to the upside and flexible, allowing you to adjust the firmness of your support from soft, medium to hard/firm.
Please note that with some beds, particularly divan (or box spring) beds, the mattress is already included, making your online purchase for a king bed even more convenient.
You may have to clear some space to fit your king size bed, but you're sure to find the extra inches are well worth it when it comes to catching some z's. King size beds are nearly as wide as they are long, but if you're looking for something even bigger to fill your bedroom, see our super king size beds.
Make sure you choose the right size of mattress for your bed from our king size mattresses, including memory foam mattresses for an even more comfortable night's sleep.
