The standard small double mattress size is 4 feet wide by 6 feet 3 inches in length - or 120cm by 190cm - the same length as a standard double mattress, but shorter width-wise to save space. This is exactly the same as queen size mattress dimensions, and the two terms can be used interchangeably. You just need to be mindful of the height of the mattress - this does vary, and some extra thick mattresses will peek above the ends of lower footboards, which might not be the look you’re going for.
A small double mattress takes up considerably less space than a standard double or king size mattress, so they offer extra room to stretch out while still being suitable for smaller bedrooms. For this reason, small double bed mattresses are most popular for guest beds, teenagers, or single adults. They can also accommodate couples, but due to limited space, we’d recommend only using them as an occasional guest bed for couples, rather than your everyday bed - opt for a double or king size mattress instead.
That entirely depends on what firmness you choose for your small double mattress! At DFS, small double bed mattresses are available in soft, soft medium, medium, medium firm, and firm options, and are comparable to their double and king size mattress counterparts.
Small double bed mattresses are ideal if you are limited on floorspace, while still offering the option to stretch out in your sleep. They’re also a more budget-friendly option than double or king size mattresses and beds.
Small double bed mattresses are available in all the same types as their double and king size counterparts - pocket sprung, hybrid, rolled and more - so you can treat yourself to your dream small double memory foam mattress, without having to compromise on losing floorspace.
