        California King Mattress - Buyer's Guide

        Understanding California king mattresses

        California king mattresses, also known as Western king mattresses, are 72 inches wide and 84 inches long. The Cal King mattress size is more common on the West Coast of the United States, hence the name "California King."

        A Cal King mattress is 4 inches narrower than a standard king mattress (76" x 80") but compensates for it by being 4 inches longer. This additional length is aimed at tall people, especially those taller than 6' 6", who want a bed for more than two.

        Does a California king bed suit you?

        Cal King mattresses have as many advantages as they do disadvantages. Examine the pros and cons listed below to see if the criteria apply to you.

        • Pros

        Spacious Size: Though 4 inches narrower than a king, Cal King beds are still one of the widest and longest bed sizes available. They are much bigger than queen beds and offer ample space for tall individuals, singles, couples, and families (of three).

        Unrestricted movement: The extra space offered by Cal King beds lets sleepers stretch their limbs without hitting whoever is sleeping beside them.

        Aesthetic appeal: Cal King beds can enhance the visual appeal of a bedroom, especially if the room has high ceilings or spacious dimensions.

        • Cons

        Size limitations: While the extra length is beneficial for taller individuals, the width of a Cal King bed is slightly narrower compared to a standard king bed.

        Higher Cost: As Cal King beds require more materials for manufacturing, they can be more expensive than other bed sizes.

        Limited availability: Cal King beds are not as widely available as standard king beds. This can make it more challenging to find suitable bedding, mattresses, or bed frames for your California king bed.

        Space requirements: The larger dimensions of a Cal King bed necessitate a room with ample space of 12 x 12 square feet or more.

        Factors to consider when buying a California king mattress

        To get your money's worth when buying a California king mattress, look out for these important factors -

        • Mattress materials

        The materials used to construct a mattress determine most of the benefits you receive, such as cushioning, contouring, support, cooling, etc. Latex, memory foam, and pocket spring coils are currently some of the best materials employed by many mattresses.

        • Certifications

        Mattress certifications exist to assure consumers about a certain mattress' quality and safety. CertiPUR-US-certified memory foam, GOLS-certified organic latex, and GOTS-certified organic cotton are a few of the many certified materials you can find in a mattress. These certifications ensure that you get a product that isn't cheap and filled with toxic levels of chemicals.

        • Firmness levels

        Before hitting "buy now" on a new mattress, you'll usually encounter the option to customize a few of its aspects. Mattress firmness is one such aspect. It refers to how soft or strong you want your mattress to feel beneath you. Essentially, it impacts the comfort and support you get from a mattress.

        • Height/Thickness

        Another customizable aspect of a mattress is its height, sometimes referred to as its thickness. Mattress height usually comes between 8 and 14 inches, of which 8-inch, 10-inch, and 12-inch are popular options. Along with factoring into your overall bed's height, mattress height can also determine the level of comfort and support you get.

        • Motion isolation and edge support

        A mattress with motion isolation ensures minimal motion transfer from one end of the bed to the other. Edge support refers to the support you get at the edges of your bed, preventing you from falling off it.

        • Cooling features

        Sleeping hot can induce a state of discomfort for certain sleepers. Mattresses with breathable materials, construction, and/or cooling gel infusions can counter this issue. A natural latex mattress and a gel memory foam mattress are two popular options when it comes to cooling. Natural latex has an open-cell structure and is often perforated for better airflow. A gel memory foam mattress is imbued with cooling gel for improved cooling.

        • Durability and lifespan

        California king-size beds aren't cheap. Investing in one can be a costly affair, making it imperative that you choose one that can last a while. Don't go for cheap mattresses from obscure retailers. Look for a California king mattress that uses certified quality materials like organic latex or memory foam. And make sure to go over the brand's reputation and customer reviews as well.

        • Price range and budget considerations

        On average, a good quality California king-size mattress costs between $1500-$3000. They usually have similar prices to regular king mattresses. Cheaper versions of the California Kings may start at $800-$900. Mid-range Cal Kings cost around $1300-$1900. Higher quality Cal Kings will be costlier and priced at around $2000-$3000.

        • Sleeping positions and health conditions

        Side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers all require a certain level of comfort and support to sustain their respective sleep positions. Side sleepers need a soft, contouring mattress for their sides, but it should also prevent sinkage that could lead to spinal misalignment. Back and stomach sleepers require a medium-firm or firm mattress that provides greater support for the spine. Besides sleep position, you must also consider any health conditions you have, such as pain, pregnancy, allergies, etc.

        Additional considerations for a California king mattress

        In order to turn your mattress into a full-fledged bed of luxurious sleep, there are a few additional considerations you must keep in mind. These include -

        • Bed frames and foundations

        Bed frames and foundations to sleep comfortably

        A standard king bed frame will not accommodate a California king bed. Thus, you need to find a California king bed frame that can fit its dimensions. A strong base beneath your mattress ensures extra support for you and durability for the mattress. Furthermore, we recommend going for a mattress foundation over a box spring, as it provides a stable surface that doesn't negatively affect the mattress's qualities.

        • Mattress accessories

        Mattress accessories like pillow top for sleep style

        Bedding accessories like pillows, mattress toppers, protector covers, duvet covers, bed sheets, blankets, comforters, etc., can make your California king-size mattress much more comfortable to sleep in. They enhance the support, cushioning, and coziness you receive while also reducing the wear and tear on your bed.

        • Warranty and return policies

        Warranty and return policies without extra cost

        With a good warranty and favorable return policy, you can better trust the longevity of the product you get. Mattresses usually come with a 5 to 20-year warranty period, depending on the type you get. Ensure that the warranty covers a wide range of topics related to mattress defects. Furthermore, go over the return policy and make sure it is clear and concise.

        • Customer reviews and ratings

        Customer reviews and ratings

        Browsing reviews and ratings left by customers will give you a good indication of how your purchase will go. A higher rating with satisfied reviews means you have a trustworthy mattress/brand in your hands. Conversely, it's best to avoid mattresses/brands with lower ratings and dissatisfied customers.

        Types of California king-size mattresses

        California king-size mattresses come in a variety of types to cater to different needs and body types. Here are some common options you'll find -

        1. Innerspring Mattress

        Innerspring mattress construction with more bounce

        Innerspring mattresses have a support system made of steel coils, which are wrapped in a thin layer of cushioning. They have been around for a long time, offering an old-fashioned firm feel that best suits back and stomach sleepers. With the good support and bounce they offer, innersprings are a popular choice among those who prefer a traditional mattress experience.

        1. Hybrid Mattress

        Hybrid mattress construction for side sleeper

        Hybrid mattresses blend the best of both worlds by combining spring coils and foam layers. It's usually pocketed coils arranged as the support core, atop which comes a thick layer of latex or memory foam. Since most hybrids use better quality materials than innersprings, they provide a better balance of support, pressure relief, and motion isolation, aiming to satisfy a wide range of sleepers.

        1. Latex Mattress

        Latex mattress construction

        Latex mattresses are made from natural, synthetic, or blended latex foam. Natural latex isn't riddled with lots of chemicals, making it the best option of the three. They offer a balance between responsive support and exquisite body contouring. Moreover, they are highly durable and breathable. If you prefer an eco-friendly, bouncy, supportive surface that cushions your pressure points and doesn't trap heat, then latex mattresses can be a good fit.

        1. Memory Foam Mattress

        High density memory foam mattress construction

        Memory foam mattresses are constructed using viscoelastic memory foam that molds to your body shape. They provide excellent pressure relief, motion isolation, and contouring comfort. If you enjoy a plush and cradling sleep surface, memory foam mattresses are worth considering. Do note that traditional and proprietary memory foam, unlike copper infused memory foam or gel memory foam, can retain heat, offer reduced bounce, and off-gas VOCs.

        1. Gel Memory Foam Mattress

        Gel Infused Memory Foam Mattress construction

        Gel memory foam mattresses merge the classic design of traditional memory foam with the cooling benefits of gel infusion. Like standard memory foam mattresses, they consist of layered memory foam encased in a cover. The distinguishing feature is the incorporation of cooling gel particles within the memory foam layers. This addition effectively regulates temperature by dispersing body heat and preventing the mattress from getting too warm during sleep.

        1. Air Mattress

        Air mattress construction

        Airbeds feature customizable air chambers as their support core, allowing you to easily adjust firmness according to your preference. Inflation can be automated with built-in pumps and remotes or done manually using hand pumps. They're ideal for those seeking a portable, temporary mattress with personalized firmness and support.

        What is the best California king mattress?

        Sharing our experience on the matter, we would suggest a natural latex mattress as the best California king mattress. The combination of comfort and support makes them suitable for almost every type of sleeper and sleeping position.

        Firmer mattress of natural latex

        But it doesn't end there. Natural latex has an open-celled structure, allowing for unrestricted airflow that leads to a cooling mattress surface. Hot sleepers will find latex beds ideal for their needs.

        Natural latex also excels when it comes to isolating motion transfer, providing edge support, being noiseless, and offering a healthy sleep environment. Add in the resilient durability of natural latex, and you have a sag-free mattress with a lifespan of 10-20 years when maintained properly.
