Thinking about purchasing a California King memory foam matress. Currently have a queen size bed. How much bigger is the Cal King? Should have enough room, my bedroom is 16' x 20'.

Hello Grant,
A typical queen size bed is 60 x 80 inches.
A typical king size bed is 76 x 80 inches.
The California king is 72 x 84 inches.  So it is 12 inches wider and 4 inches longer than your queen.  

You should have plenty of room for the California king.
