Explore the range of space-saving small double beds at DFS. Considerably smaller than a double, king size, or super king size bed, and with more space to stretch out than a single, a small double bed frame (also known as a queen size bed) is ideal for guest rooms, growing kids and teens, and solo sleepers who like a little extra room. Whether you’re browsing for simple upholstered or small double wooden beds, to practical small double beds with storage - like small double divan beds and small double ottoman beds - we have plenty for you to choose from - and if you need extra help deciding, check out our helpful bed buying guide for additional advice.

Often also called a queen size bed or 4ft bed, standard small double mattresses measure up at a precise 6 feet 3 inches (190cm) in length, and 4 feet (120cm) in width - but small double bed size can vary, depending on the materials used, type of small double bed frame, and whether it has a headboard. When choosing your small 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 small double bed base doesn’t interfere with any light switches, dado rails or windowsills. When checking small double bed dimensions against the space available in your bedroom, don’t forget to measure hallways and staircases too, to make sure your new small double bed frame will make it safely to its new home.
Because small double bed dimensions are on the smaller side, yes, you can sleep two people in them, but we wouldn’t necessarily recommend them as an everyday bed for a couple. While the small double bed size is perfect for rooms tight on floorspace and is perfectly fine for a couple to share for a night or two, we think small double beds are best used in guest rooms, or for spaces that will usually accommodate a solo sleeper. If you’re looking for a permanent sleeping space for two, we advise you check out our range of double beds, king size beds, or even super king size beds instead - snoozing couples will appreciate the extra space.
It of course does depend on the size of your room - but small double bed bases are one of the smallest bed options, second only to single beds, and will fit in most small bedrooms. A standard small double mattresses measures 190cm long by 120cm wide, so you can expect a small double bed size to be slightly larger than this. All our small double bed dimensions are listed on their specific product pages, so be sure to check these against your room measurements carefully.
The cost of a small double bed base can vary, but you can expect to pay from £400 to £1200, depending on the type of small double bed frame and materials used. On the lower end of the scale you’ll find simple upholstered, metal or small double wooden beds, and at the higher end, small double beds with storage, including small double divan beds and small double ottoman beds.
