Buying a bed for the first time is one of those experiences that they don’t really teach you about. It’s similar to the first time you have to write a check, or doing your own laundry when Mom or Dad finally decides you’re old enough to know. Although we are arguably old enough to know, why hadn’t we gotten any courses or training on things to look for or things to consider when doing any of these tasks?
When I bought my first bed at the age of ~25 (wild, I know. But until then, I just kept sleeping on whatever Mom and Dad gave me in college – a Twin size – and then eventually “upgraded” to whatever extra mattress they had laying around in their basement – a Full size), I visited all the mattress stores in New York City (where I was living at the time). I visited Mattress Firm, Bob’s Discount Furniture, Raymour & Flanigan, Macy’s 6th floor bedding department. I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking for from price point to firmness to softness to size. But once I narrowed it down to the fact that nothing bigger than a queen size would fit in my 500 square foot apartment, the search narrowed in.
It turns out that the queen size bed was the perfect size for my small bedroom, but it was not enough space for my significant other (now my husband) to snuggle in beside me. He’s a pretty tall man (6’4”) so we truly always needed a king size for his extra long legs (which we have today, 7 years later).
The History of a King Size Bed
King size beds have been a popular choice for bedrooms since the late 1800s. Initially, they were used as luxury items and were only available to those of high status or wealth. Over time, however, king size beds became more accessible and were often found in middle-class homes by the early 1900s.
In recent years, the popularity of king size beds has only increased, as they provide a large amount of sleeping space and can easily be shared between two people. In addition to their spacious size, king size beds have also become more stylish over time. Today's designs range from traditional to modern, giving consumers plenty of options to choose from when decorating their bedroom with a king size bed.
No matter the style or material, one thing is certain: a king size bed will always provide a luxurious and comfortable sleeping experience. With its large surface area, it gives two people plenty of space to spread out and enjoy their sleep without feeling cramped or crowded. In addition, the soft mattress allows for extra cushioning and support, which can reduce neck and back pain.
Overall, the king size bed has become more than a simple piece of furniture. It is a symbol of comfort, luxury and relaxation that can help people feel truly rejuvenated after a long day or difficult week.
The Hard Part is Buying The Right Bed Sheets - Choose King Size Fitted Sheets That Stay On
Once you’ve decided that a king bed is right for you, the next step is finding the perfect bed sheets. There are so many things to consider when buying bed sheets – fit, material, color, pattern, utility, how many sets, and of course price point. Way before I started Kitelinens, I personally always searched for bed sheets that stay tucked in. Both my king size fitted sheets and top sheets needed to stay tucked in for me to be my normal happy self. But, the feeling of those bed sheets mattered too!
I wanted soft, but not too soft that they would pill. I wanted bed sheets that would keep me cool while I slept, and also didn’t wrinkle much. At the time, I needed Kitelinens king size fitted sheets and Stay-Tucked top sheet, but unfortunately they didn’t exist just yet ;).

All you need to do with Kitelinens bed sheets are pull up, no tuck, and go about your day!
How is it that our bed sheets are so different? Well, it’s all in the patent-pending design of the top sheet. This very simple combination of a traditional top sheet with the footer of a fitted sheet is all it takes. Combined with the dual side slits that allow you to sneak your feet out (if you wish), and the extra material making up the large “pocket” region, you’re never too constricted or feeling trapped in our bed sheets.
We’ve heard from so many of our customers that their Kitelinens bed sheets that stay on are game changing. Rebecca J. shared, “[I] Love these bed sheets so much. The idea is so simple yet makes a huge difference in my life.” And McQueen added, “[I] Love the Stay-Tucked top sheet! [My] husband’s fussy feet [are] happy with roominess [from] the side slit.”
If you’re hunting for king size fitted sheets that stay on, Kitelinens has you covered.
Dimensions of Kitelinens King Size Bed Sheets That Stay On
King beds are traditionally 76 inches wide and 80 inches long. Because Kitelinens sheets are unique in their design, the dimensions aren’t an exact fit.
For the king size fitted sheets, these are sized exactly to the dimensions of the mattress - 76” W x 80” L, but they also come with 17"-pockets that help keep the fitted sheets on the mattress.
Our patent-pending Stay-Tucked top sheet measures at 113” W x 115” L, but don’t let these dimensions confuse you. Because of our design, we require a lot more fabric than traditional bed sheets use.
Our sets of bed sheets each come with two pillow cases (either standard or King) that measure 20” W x 31” L (standard) and 20” W x 38” L (king).
If you’re in the market for a new bed, a king bed is a great option. If you buy a bed, you’ll then very quickly be in the market for new bed sheets - and king size fitted sheets that stay tucked in, for that matter - so be sure to snag yourself a set of Kitelinens bed sheets for the best night sleep you’ll ever have.
