Create Your Bed Sheet Linen
Making your own bed sheet linen gives you the flexibility to design a bedroom the way you want, without worrying about whether the bedding matches the decor. King size beds are available in two different sizes: Standard (Eastern King) and California (Western King). The standard king is a bit wider, and the California king is a bit longer. Sometimes find exactly what you want in one size or the other can be difficult.
