About Our California King Size Mattresses
California king size mattresses have their roots in luxury. They were first used in the 1960s when a Los Angeles-based furniture company began producing extra-large beds for celebrity mansions. Whether you want to sleep like a 1960s Hollywood star, are taller than average and want more legroom or have a long or narrow bedroom, City Mattress has a California king mattress for you. A California king bed is 72 by 84 inches, while a standard king bed — also called an Eastern king bed — is 76 by 80 inches. A California king mattress is slightly narrower and longer, making it perfect for tall sleepers. It’s also great for people who have long, narrow bedrooms, where an Eastern king bed might fit more awkwardly, if at all.

Although California king beds were originally made for the rich and famous, at City Mattress, we have California king mattresses for almost any budget. With nine brands to choose from, whether you’re looking to spend a few hundred or a few thousand dollars on a mattress, City Mattress has something for you. When it comes to choosing how your mattress feels, we offer many options. We have California king mattresses that contain soft and supportive memory foam, specially engineered innersprings or a combination of the two materials. Some of our California king sizes also have latex foam, which adds an additional layer of luxury. You can also choose how the top of your mattress feels. Whether you prefer firm, plush or pillow top, we have choices for you.
What Else You Should Know About Our California King Mattresses
Keep in mind that because of the atypical size of California king mattresses, it is highly recommended that you also get a box spring for your new bed. Otherwise, you risk your mattress sagging, shortening its life span. There’s no need to worry about transporting you new California king mattress to your home, either. City Mattress will deliver and set up your bed for you, free of charge. For an additional fee, we can even remove your old mattress, so you can get started with your good night’s sleep right away.
