Compare the prices of California King and King Sheets

King beds and California king beds are the two largest bed sizes that are wildly available to the public without custom furniture production. Larger than queen beds, king beds require sheets that are among the biggest in the bedding industry. When you have a super king-size bed and need king-size bedding and a super-king duvet, you need to be a smart shopper as king bedding is more expensive due to its larger size.

King or California King

The first factor to consider in pricing out King and California King bedding cover and sheet sets is that California King sets are usually going to be a bit more expensive. California king beds and king beds are not the same in size. A California King bed is going to be longer and narrower than a standard king, which is shorter and wider. In most stores, standard king beds are more popular and thus more sheets and duvets are made for them. Finding California King sheets specifically designed for the dimensions of a California king bed is harder, so you are going to have to pay a premium.

Material

The next major factor that will determine the price of super king or queen size sheets, or any other kind of sheets or bedding for that matter, is the material that the sheets are made from. Sheets can be made from things like flannel or jersey knit, which are more affordable options. Most stores, from department stores to stores like Target or TJ Maxx, carry jersey knit and flannel sheet sets for king beds. These come in a variety of colours and patterns and are an economical choice. High quality sheets For more expensive and luxurious sheets, you can consider things like Egyptian or organic cotton and bamboo sheets. Bamboo sheets are more expensive than flannel or jersey knit but are less expensive than high thread count cotton sheets - and they are better for the environment too. The most expensive of king and California King sheets will be the high thread count Egyptian cotton or organic cotton. The higher the thread count, the softer the sheets are and the more expensive they will become. For example, for 1000 thread count sheets, you can expect to pay $100 or more.
