What size is a small double bed?
Struggling to accommodate a regular double bed in your bedroom? Take a step down in size and enjoy room to stretch with a small double bed. Our small doubles comprise a 4ft bed frame, fitting in seamlessly to a standard-sized bedroom that doesn’t have space to spare.
4ft small double beds are also known as queen-size beds in the UK. The standard single measures up to 3ft in width and 6.3ft in length, while a double comes in at 4.6ft by 6.3ft. A 4ft small double bed is slightly narrower than a double at 4ft in width but retains the standard length of 6.3ft.
Small doubles are comfortably big enough for two people. Sacrificing 6 inches on double bed size, these smaller beds lose nothing when it comes to width, creating a cosy sleeping environment. Finding the right size double bed for you has never been easier. Turn your cramped bedroom into a spacious sleep sanctuary with our 4ft x 6.3ft (120cm x 190cm / 47" x 75") small double beds.
Our Ultimate UK Bed & Mattress Size Guide will give you more information on the different UK bed sizes, as well as how they differ between European and American bed sizes.
What are the benefits of a 4ft small double bed?
Small double beds are the perfect choice if you want a little bit of extra sleeping space, but you’re limited on bedroom area. Also known as queen beds, small doubles are around 20cm narrower than a standard double. So while they may be a little smaller, that compact size goes almost unnoticed when it comes to comfort. If you have a smaller space then the dimensions of a small double should work perfectly. They measure 4ft x 6’3” (120cm x 190cm), so while you might lose a little bit of width, they’re still the same length as a standard double.
Small double beds are a great choice for second bedrooms and guest rooms that may be smaller than your master bedroom. However, they’re large enough to accommodate two normal-sized adults with plenty of space for both partners to stretch out and get comfortable. You can also buy a 4ft ottoman bed, which allows you to utilise the space underneath your bed for convenient storage.
A small double bed may be a little more diminutive, but there’s no compromise on comfort, support, or style. Go for a 4ft wooden bed frame for a traditional look, or a more contemporary metal frame small double bed for an on-trend feel that will fit in with modern décor.
