A small double is a useful bed base which may suit 1 person who likes a bit more room, or be a cosy fit for 2 average size people. It’s a handy item for who want to make the most of their floor space in a narrower bedroom. Sometimes referred to as a ‘4ft bed’ the small double bed base supports mattresses which measure 120 x 190 cm. For mattresses measuring 120 x 200 cm, we are pleased to offer this size in an adjustable divan bed with a single handset for the person who want just that extra touch of luxury when they retire to rest.The first of 3 sizes perfect for couples, a standard double bed gives each of you space to sleep comfortably. There are a huge array of bedframe styles, divans and bases available to fit a standard 4’6 double mattress, whose equivalent metric measurements are 135 x 190 cm. Finally If you read or watch TV a lot before you go to sleep we are pleased to offer a long double sized base in an adjustable bed also with a single handset. You will need a special size mattress to go with it as it is 10cm longer than a UK standard double.
Where space is at a premium a small double sized bed might just be the answer for growing teenagers who need a bit more room, providing a temporary sleep solution before they fly the nest. Divan models with drawers can provide additional handy storage to reduce lightweight clutter in a restricted area.
For single sleepers seeking not just more room but also an extra touch of luxury we offer an adjustable divan base in a long small double size which includes a massage unit as standard.
Double bed bases are great for people of average height, but if you are more than 190 cm tall; more space is likely to equal better sleep. Look out for hidden storage options in divan and ottoman bases. We recommend you also take a look at kings and super kings before you finally decide…
Finally if double is the size you want but you want to treat yourself to a divan base to really relax both you and your partner take a look at our adjustable long double bed base with massage, but remember this model is 10cm longer than a standard double bed and needs a special sized 135 x 200cm mattress to go with it.
