There's no sleeping arrangement more inviting than a California king bed. Measuring 72 inches wide by 84 inches long, the extra-large California king-size mattress offers additional space for taller, larger bodies that may feel cramped on standard mattress sizes. Displayed on a stylish California King-size bed frame, its impressive size creates a natural focal point in the room.

Whether you are getting a new bed or sprucing up your master bedroom with a new bed frame, we've rounded up the most stylish bed frames for a California king-size mattress. Below, you'll find everything from minimalist platform beds to plushly upholstered headboards for California king beds.

18 California King Bed Frame Selections for a Stylish Sleeping Space

Remember, a standard king and a California king are not the same things. The latter boasts an additional 4 inches at the end, meaning it'll need a bed frame specifically designed for California king mattresses. Before making a purchase, be sure to look over a product's measurements to ensure it's compatible with your mattress. It's far easier to double-check now than it is to go through the hassle of disassembling and returning later.
