Bed size standards vary around the world. Not only are the names of the standard sizes sometimes different but even beds and mattresses with the same name can have different measurements in different countries. Even within a single country different manufacturers interpret the "standard" bed sizes differently. Some might shave a couple of inches off to reduce cost, others add a little for comfort.
Luxury bedding sets will vary greatly when it comes to pillow covers. Often, you will see pillow covers referred to as shams, or even pillow cases. They're all the same thing. Most luxury, and normal bedding sets generally have as many normal pillow covers as are appropriate for the size of the bed that the luxury bed linens are supposed to cover. In addition, they'll often have a rather arbitrary number of coverings for other random cushions, such as throw pillows and neck pillows. If you can match the contents to your actual cushions, then that's great, but don't count on it.
Firstly, you need to set yourself a budget. You'd be amazed how the prices can vary, often causing you to overpay for an item you could have purchased considerably cheaper elsewhere. By setting a budget, you have something to work to. This can also force you to spend some time and shop around until you find that perfect match for your room.
Those few inches can make a lot of difference.Beds are usually labeled according to the dimensions of the mattress - the actual measurements of the bed itself might be a little wider and/or longer. A Standard King is also called an Eastern King and a California King is also called a Western King. A Standard King is about 4" wider and a California King is 4" longer.
