When you scroll through an interior magazine and occasionally, then the term King are certainly aware. But what’s really behind it, and what is the difference to the German double bed and the American Queen size bed? As the name already indicates it, the three dimensions are different.
The double beds are divided into three categories depending on the dimensions:
The smallest double bed – size 130 cm – 145 cm X 200 cm is considered the so-called Queen size. This bed is suitable for small bedrooms and offers comfort for a person. Couples who are planning a vacation in the United Kingdom or in the United States, can book a room with Queen size bed. But permanently, two people on the bed should not sleep – the sleep position on a narrow bed could lead to back problems.
French bed refers to a double bed with dimensions between 150-180 cm. The model is available in Germany mostly in the width to 160cm and comes with a slatted base. This offers a distinct advantage – namely, that a suitable mattress can be found. So couples are comfortable double bed.
The King is the third variant – it offers more than enough lying surface with a width of 180cm up to 200cm. But as often to convince the owners of such bed, larger surface does not equal comfort. Two mattresses fit into the bed frame – this is a gap in the middle of the bed. Quality designer beds are offered with a mattress in size – they cost more of course, but the investment is worthwhile in any case.
