How big is a king-size bed in Germany?

As you can see, in America, similar to ours, there is a division between a single bed and a double bed. In this country, a king-size bed is a bed with a minimum width of 180 cm and a length of 200 cm. All beds below are therefore considered to be queen-size beds. Among the single beds, the 140 × 200 bed is particularly popular, while the 180 × 200 bed is the most common choice for the double bed in the bedroom. But the bed 200 × 200 cm is also a real king-size bed!

Special features of king-size beds

In addition to the dimensions, there are also differences in the choice of mattress. With American beds, there is usually one continuous mattress used, also with the king-size beds. In Germany, two separate slatted frames and mattresses are usually used for double beds, making the bed configurable on each side. However, there will also be a continuous slatted frame and a continuous mattress More and more popular. With regard to a French bed, which also has a continuous lying area, we offer you a versatile selection of mattresses and slatted frames up to a width of 200 cm for even more comfort in the bedroom.

Another difference is the structure and accessories of such American beds. The king-size bed in the USA usually has a solid bed frame with a stable base and one XXL spring mattress. In this up to 46cm high mattress are a Innerspring and a Mattress topper already incorporated. American beds are also known in Germany as box spring beds. However, these box spring beds are constructed differently in Europe than in the USA. Box spring beds with a box spring system have been popular in Sweden for several years and are constantly being further developed there. Our box spring bed, as we know it today, therefore comes from the Scandinavian region and is now also known as Scandinavian box spring bed designated. In contrast to the American model, it consists of a box with a spring core, a mattress and a topper. A bed box is usually not available.

The spring core of such king size beds is what makes the mattress on top point elastic. Many small springs enable a targeted pressure equalization and thus ensure a optimal body adaptation. Depending on the spring core, however, the sleeping comfort can vary.

Cheap box spring beds usually only have one Bonell innerspring, while more expensive box spring beds with high-quality spring cores, like with a Pocket spring core, offer better sleeping comfort. In addition, the box with the spring core replaces the function of a slatted frame. The topper rounds off such a box spring system and prevents this Visitor gap between two divided mattresses, at the same time it increases their comfort and functions as a protective mattress topper. Such beds are also called Complete bed because the necessary accessories are already included. They are also available with extras, for example including an adjustable headboard.
