All You Need To Know About Double Beds

Who thinks about beds?!

Who thinks about beds? No one, unless you need them. And then, they can be the most confusing thing in the world. The same bed could have different words, they are available in too many sizes, and everything is just a jumble. 

Whether it’s for yourself, or to get for a loved one, choosing a bed can be confusing and we are here to help you clear it!

What is a double bed?

There are a lot of names for the same bed. And you may have heard ‘full bed’ instead of double bed numerous times. Yes, they both are the same thing have the dimensions 54 inches by 75 inches. 

Double beds are quite common in the UK, but what exactly are they? We know it’s still confusing because no one goes around measuring the dimensions of a bed. Even though the name implies double, a double bed is not as ‘double’ as one might think. In simple words, a double bed fits a mattress that can fit two people, even though it is relatively quite small.  

It’s not as ‘full’ in size, but does the work quite well and would be suitable for a lot of people and conditions, a few of which we’ve mentioned below. 

How is a double bed different from a queen bed?

Now that you know what a double bed is, it might have become fairly easy for you to guess the size of a queen bed: it’s definitely bigger! If you shift to a queen bed after using a double bed, you might feel like a king! See what we did there? Ha-ha! 

If you lie down with someone else on a queen bed after a double bed, you are going to notice a significant increase between the two of you compared to when you lied down on a double bed. 

The dimensions of a queen bed are approximately 60 inches by 80 inches. 

King bed

Well, do we need to say any further? At approximately 76 inches by 80 inches, this is the most expensive size available as of now. 

Dimensions of different beds

Double bed: 54 inches by 75 inches

Queen bed: 60 inches by 80 inches

King bed: 76 inches by 80 inches

Why should you pick a double bed?

  • Youngsters wanting to switch to a bigger bed

If you are in your early teens and had a single bed or trundle bed, a switch to a double bed is best for you. You probably do not need a very big bed to take up all the space in your room, but you are growing up and want a bigger bed. Well, what are you waiting for? Get a double bed ASAP!

  • Got married on a budget

Got married but need new furniture on a budget? A double bed might be a good option. Marriage is expensive, with so much you need to do, so much furniture that you need to buy, other important household expenses that need to be carried out, bills that need to be paid. Woah, scary! 

Well, you could save easily and get a nice, affordable double bed for you and your partner.

  • Size of the room

Some rooms might look too congested if you put a king or queen size bed in them. If you need a bed that is spacious enough without filling up the whole of your room, a double bed is a good option. 

Enjoy the comfort of a good bed while saving space!
