What are the dimensions of a small double mattress?
A small double mattress is approximately 120cm (4ft) in width and 190cm (6ft 3 inches) in length. You may also know them as queen-size mattresses - they are 6 inches smaller than a double mattress, making them perfect for small spaces.
If you're unsure whether one will fit in your room, use our home measuring guide.
Are small double mattresses suitable for couples and individuals?
Absolutely! Small double mattresses are versatile and can work well for both couples and individuals. While they provide a bit more space than a single mattress, they are still cosy and intimate, making them ideal for couples who don't mind being snug.
Also called a ¾ size mattress, they also work wonderfully for individuals who desire a little extra room to stretch out without sacrificing too much space in their home. And as they are only 4ft wide, they are a fantastic size for guest rooms and teenagers’ bedrooms too.
What types of small double mattresses are available?
Let's go through the different fillings, springs, brands, and their benefits to find one that’s right for you…
Memory foam small double mattresses
Memory foam is incredibly popular as it provides specialised support for your body during sleep. If you often wake with stiff joints, back pain, or any other sleep-related pain, it could be worth investing in a memory foam mattress. The viscoelastic materials respond to your body shape and movement, making this a great option if you vary your sleeping position.
For an extra level of comfort compared to a traditional spring small double mattress, consider choosing a pocket sprung mattress. As the name suggests, the springs sit in their own 'pockets' and respond accurately to your movement throughout the night. Expect a high level of comfort and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day.
Made with a high-density foam and gel layer, ActiGel mattresses are fantastic if you want cooling comfort as you sleep. They will will spread your weight evenly, ensuring good circulation, and all-night-long comfort.
Traditional spring mattresses are a popular option due to their price. They are the most budget-friendly queen-size mattress. But don't worry, they’re still super comfortable and supportive.
TEMPUR® small double mattresses
TEMPUR mattresses feature incredible scientific properties designed to maximise your sleep quality. With innovative materials, these 4ft mattresses feature 'open-cell' technology. Put simply, this means an advanced approach to responding to heat. The open cells encourage good airflow, allowing heat to escape to keep you cool and comfy all night long.
We also have small double mattresses from well-known brands such as Silentnight, Sleepeezee, Reylon, and more! You can use our mattress finder to help you choose one.
Which is the best comfort grade for me?
Choosing the best small double mattress largely depends on your preferred sleeping position. If you tend to sleep on your side, consider a soft mattress or medium comfort grade mattress. A medium grade is also suitable if you often vary your sleeping position during the night. They both contain plenty of cushioning, allowing your body to sink in just the right amount and avoid any pain on your pressure points.
A firm mattress or very firm mattress is a better choice for those who sleep on their front or back. They provide extra lumbar support to alleviate pressure on your spine and joints, so you wake up feeling refreshed. For more advice, take a look at your personal comfort guide.
