With lots of sizes available, choosing a new bed that's right for you can be a bit tricky. Whether you're buying a new frame, mattress or both, it's important to know the exact measurements. Measurements vary from country to country, so, what are the U.K bed measurements?
Small Single - 2’6” x 6’3”
Small singles are the perfect size for children that aren't quite ready for a full single bed. They're slightly narrower in width but offer the same amount of length as a single.
Single - 3’0” x 6’3”
Suitable for both children and adults. The single bed is a great space-saving option for smaller rooms.
Small Double - 4’0” x 6’3”
A small double, also known as a queen is slightly narrower than a classic double. A great option for single sleepers who require extra space or for rooms where a standard double won't quite fit.

A standard double is the most popular size in the U.K. Designed to fit two adults comfortably, it's a great choice for couples.
