There’s nothing more annoying than measuring up your room and finding the perfect alcove for a double bed is just slightly too small. Our range of small double beds are just a little smaller than the traditional double for partners. They’re also great for rooms where you want to maximise floor space or for those who sleep alone but prefer a bit more space than a single.
A small double bed is 4 ft wide and 6 ft 3 inches long. This is equal to 120cm wide and 190cm long. If your room is too small to fit a double, a small double could be the perfect size. They’re also a great size for those who sleep alone but want more space than a single provides.
Choosing a 4ft bed frame as opposed to a double bed can often make the difference between fitting your bed into an alcove or having space for a bedside table next to your sleeping space.
When measuring the space in an alcove, be sure to do it from skirting board to skirting board, rather than the middle of the wall. If you're at all unsure, read more about measuring your home for new furniture or bed and mattress sizes.
Despite the fact small doubles are most practical for saving space, you don't have to substitute style for size. There are plenty of options, including:
For a truly French chateau vibe, consider a small double wooden bed. These can create a truly warm and relaxing ambiance. What’s more, because of the cost of materials, they come at very reasonable prices. If you fancy something a little more elegant but still want to save on price, consider a painted queen-size bed frame which can add a touch of class to your room. If you have room for more than a small double, check out our full range of wooden beds.
If you’re choosing a small double, you’re likely looking to save as much space as possible without losing too much luxury. That makes a queen-sized divan base an incredible option as they often have drawers installed as part of the design. This means you can store extra clothing, bed linen and whatever you like, out of sight.
Opt for a 2‐drawer divan if you’re planning on placing your bed beside a wall. If not, and your small double bed is intended for the centre of your room, choose the 4‐drawer option and get maximum space saving.
Similar to a divan base, a small double ottoman has plenty of space saving features. With gas-lift technology to make lifting the mattress incredibly easy, you can access a vast amount of storage beneath the bed’s base.
For the ultimate in luxury, consider an an upholstered bed frame. These can make for a fabulous bedroom centre‐piece, suggesting sophistication and class, especially when in faux leather. Often coming with a headboard and/or footboard as part of the design, they provide a consistent and glamorous aesthetic.
Whatever queen size or small double bed you choose, our 1-year guarantee ensures you’re happy with your purchase. There’s even the option for upgrading that cover to a fantastic 8 years with our Bedcover plan.
