How Big Should the Room Be To Fit A King Size Bed?

Many shopping for a new home ask if the main bedroom is big enough to accommodate a King Size bed. That answer is a difficult one to give for many different factors. The bedroom must be big to accommodate the bed, but how big is big enough?

Thingz, your contemporary furniture store, has bedroom solutions for you. In this article, we will walk you through the differences between Western and Eastern sized King beds and will also give examples of rooms in which King-size beds worked well in. The answer to how big your room should be for a King-size bed is simply: it depends.

King Size Bed

Based off of the most commonly purchased king, the Standard King  (76″ wide x 80″ long), the minimum room size according to Ehow.com is 12 feet by 9 feet 10 inches. Most designers will tell you that you need a minimum of 30 inches all around the bed for movement. Although this is only a suggestion, you can use this measurement as a rule of thumb when determining if your bedroom can accommodate a King-sized bed.

There isn’t a specific standard size for a room but a minimum size suggestion because all rooms differ so greatly. Even if you compare a room to another room that is identical in size, you may have differently placed windows, closets, and vents for heating and cooling.

Some examples of bedrooms that have worked well to hold a King-sized bed are as follows. A bedroom that is 14 feet by 19 feet can comfortably hold a King-size Bed, two nightstands on either side of the bed, a love seat, ottoman, TV stand and a dresser. Another bedroom that is smaller at 12 feet by 12 feet can hold a King-sized bed with two nightstands and a dresser.

Land Transfer Tax Refund for First-time Homebuyers

I own a parcel of vacant land that I wish to subdivide into parts in order to sell the parts separately. Does the HST apply to these sales? 

The sale of the severed portion of vacant land would not be subject to GST/HST since it is not capital property used primarily (more than 50%) in a business and it is not being sold in the course of a business. However, if the land was subdivided into more than two parts, sales of the severed portions are not exempt unless the portion is sold to a relative (or to a former spouse or common-law partner) for their personal use.
