There are even examples of a big family bed that is designed to fit multiple members of the family and can be even larger than the above-listed sizes. An extra large family bed is a novelty item that is not found in many stores and is something that is a specialty for families. Be aware of these sizes and know how they will suit your individual needs when making that purchase.
