Standard double mattresses measure up at a precise 6 feet 3 inches (190cm) in length, and 4 feet 6 inches (135cm) in width - but double bed size can vary, depending on the materials used, type of double bed frame, and whether it has a headboard. When choosing your double bed, always check the specific length and width measurements displayed on the product page to ensure it will fit. You may also want to check the height measurement as well, to ensure your new double bed base doesn’t interfere with any light switches, dado rails or windowsills. When checking double bed dimensions against the space available in your bedroom, don’t forget to measure hallways and staircases too, to make sure your new double bed frame will make it safely to its new home.
The main benefit of a double bed is that it can easily sleep two, while taking up less space than two single beds. Double bed frames are ideal for couples, but can also make great beds for solo sleepers who like to stretch out in the night. However, if you are over 6 feet tall, a double bed may be too short for you, and you might want to consider a king size or super king size bed instead.
While they are both the same length, double beds are wider than queen beds, with the mattress giving you an extra 6 inches (15cm) of space. This can make quite the difference, especially for a couple sharing a double bed. For even more space, you might consider a king size bed or super king size bed, which can offer even more space, in both width and length, than a double bed.
