A double bed has been considered the gold standard bed size
Advice from expert
To make sure your new bed is the perfect fit for your room,
check the dimensions of the room, doors, and stairs. This will
help you have a thoughtful plan to buy the right size bed and
easily move it into the assigned room.
It's also important to know that mattress sizes vary from country to
country and from supplier to supplier. If you already have a
bed base or bed frame, make sure the new mattress is sized to
fit your bed frame.
Frequently asked questions
What does double bed mean?
A double bed is a bed that is wide enough for two people to sleep in. Dimensions of 139cm wide by 191cm long.
Is a double mattress good for 2 people?
Yes, a double bed has been considered the gold standard bed size for couples, and can definitely sleep two. However, some couples may find a queen or king size mattress is their perfect fit.
Is a double bed to big for one person?
If you have a bedroom that is not too spacious but still want a comfortable bed, then a double bed will be an ideal option for an adult or teenager, who has a spacious sleeping space without taking up too much space in the bedroom.
What's better a single or a double bed?
More space to spread out: double beds are larger in width (139 x 191cm) than a single bed (91 x 191cm), though a single bed is more ideal for one person to sleep in rather than two and a double bed will be more suitable for small apartments or spare rooms.
Is a double bed the same as a queen?
No, a queen size bed is 13cm wider and 11cm longer than a double bed. A double (or full) bed used to be the gold standard for couples until the queen size mattress came along. Now, double beds are mostly used by single people.
