What size is a small double mattress?
A small double bed mattress is 4ft by 6ft 3". In metric dimensions, this is equal to 120 x 190 cm. This size is also commonly referred to as queen size mattresses and is approximately 6 inches narrower than standard double mattresses. They’ve become more popular over recent years, as small bedrooms are now common, especially within apartments and for those who live in cities. Small double mattresses are also super popular for teenagers and guest rooms and work great with our range of small double divan beds.
What are the different types of small double mattresses?
Just like their bigger brothers, small double mattresses come in a wide variety of types. Memory foam mattresses are convenient and provide you with plenty of comfort and support, moulding to the shape of your body. The classic sprung option is a budget-friendly choice, while pocketed spring mattresses provide exceptional support with less movement transference. Look out for hypoallergenic options if you suffer from asthma or allergies, and orthopaedic versions if you prefer a firmer feel.

Why choose a small double mattress?
If you have a bedroom that is fairly narrow and won’t accommodate a king size bed and mattress, then a small double mattress will be perfect. Our 4ft mattresses are probably better for just one person although two average-sized adults can fit comfortably onto this size if they don't mind close proximity
By choosing small double, you can design your bedroom to your specific requirements, regardless of its size. Whether you want fitted wardrobes, an open fireplace, or space for a desk, a small double will help you accommodate your needs.
Finally, there’s a financial benefit to choosing small double mattresses. As you’d expect, they’re cheaper than double mattresses, king mattresses, and superkings.
To summarize, here are the main reasons to buy a small double mattress:
- Extra floor space for your bedroom
- More room for extra furniture
- Greater freedom to design your room to your specific needs
- Less expensive than other mattresses

Can a small double mattress fit two adults?
A small double can fit two adults of average size quite comfortably. As they measure 4’ wide x 6’3” long, you should be able to snuggle up together and still have enough space to stretch out if you want.
Can you put a small double mattress on a double bed?
It’s not advisable, as there will be a gap around the sides that could mean the mattress moves around on the bed frame, or allows a draught to blow between the mattress and the frame. It’s always best to get the correct size mattress to match your bedframe for maximum comfort.
