FAQ - Small Double Beds
What size is a Small Double Bed Mattress?+ -
A Small Double Bed Mattress is 120cm (4ft) wide and 190cm (6ft 3") long. It is larger than a Single bed mattress and smaller than a standard UK Double bed mattress.
Is a small double bed frame designed for 1 sleeper or 2 sleepers?+ -
A small double bed frame is typically designed to accommodate one sleeper, but it can also be used for two sleepers who don't mind sleeping in close proximity. It provides more sleeping space than a single bed but is narrower than a double bed, so it may be more comfortable for one person than two.
Would you recommend a Single Row of Slats or Dual Row of sprung bed slats for a Small Double Bed Frame?+ -
For a Small Double Bed Frame, a single row of slats is ideal when used by one sleeper, as they will be sleeping in the middle of the bed frame. However, single row slats can also cope with two sleepers, although this may not be ideal on a long-term basis. If two sleepers are using the Small Double Bed Frame, we would recommend a dual row of slats for better support and to avoid disturbing each other when moving. With a dual row of slats, each sleeper can have their own set of slats, providing more even support across the bed frame and helping to ensure a more comfortable and restful sleep for both.

Certainly! Our UK Small Double Bed Frames are designed with standard M8 fixings on the back, specifically for bed frames without an integrated headboard.
