A standard double mattress is the UK's most popular bed size. A double mattress measures 4ft 6" by 6ft 3", or 135cm x 190cm, and is the go-to size for couples, as these dimensions will fit two adults without the need for an oversized bedroom.
With the growing trend for more expansive beds, double mattresses are also a well-liked choice for people who sleep alone but might sometimes share a bed, or solo sleepers who like plenty of room to turn during the night.
Is a Double Bed the Right Size for Your Room?
Interior designers recommend a proportion of about 1:3, advising the bedroom is three times bigger than the chosen bed size. But, this is not always feasible, particularly with a king or super king-size bed. But it is desirable to have at least 30 inches between the bed's edges and the closest walls or furniture. If you are thinking of buying a double bed as a lone sleeper but think it might take up too much space, you might prefer a mattress from our 4ft small double mattress range
. This size is ample for one person, but being 6 inches narrower than a standard double bed, it gives you extra room to move or place other furniture.
