King size dimensions
A king mattress measures 183 cm in width, and 188 cm in length, and the average height is approximately 30 cm high. This height varies between mattress types
Because of the varying materials and support cores used, the different types have a big height difference. Quality also influences because the density foam layers increase in thickness to make the bed more luxurious. It applies to the entry-level types that are much thinner. They also have a big difference in prices.

Need Extra Length? Buy King XL Mattresses
You will find that most models have an extra length option. There are a few that don't though. Our beds that have a weight rating of 10 years and up can come in extra length. This is because when determining the weight limit and warranty as well as price is considered. So lower-priced beds have fewer components and will not offer the proper support. Foams are easier to get cut into extra length and other customized mattresses and springs are made on a template so they are less flexible in terms of custom mattress size. There is not that much of a noticeable price difference in XL, generally 10-15% more.
King mattress types
This is the most common and oldest spring support system. They are known for their durability. It comes in most times as a good option when doing price comparisons. They are normally firm mattresses.
This mattress type is the go-to type for those who need a medium to soft feel that combines support that gives the ideal spine alignment.
Also known as high-density foam mattresses, they are available in a price range that suits any budget. From entry-level to a premium mattress range.
Latex is considered to be the top of the range when you have to have a premium sleeping experience and a luxury sleep. Most opt for extra length for added sleep space.
Pocket spring mattresses have the no movement transfer feature, this is a go-to bed when there is one restless partner and you need undisturbed sleep. The individual pocket springs move independently to absorb movement.
Caring for your new bed
When investing in your new sleep system you will have forked out a pretty penny. The fact is that beds and mattresses are not the cheapest items to purchase for the first time or to replace. So bed protection is important. A quality mattress protector is a must, this is often also a requirement on some warranties requiring you to buy one should you wish to claim. It is just as important to follow the mattress manufacturer's instructions that are contained in the warranty certificate. These instructions will include the turn sequence and periods and how and when to turn them.
