Can two people fit in a small double bed?
Small double beds are more than comfortable for two sleepers to share, however be warned – if you and your partner aren’t big on midnight cuddles, you will need to be willing to give up a little room for a comfy sleep. If you’re a restless sleeper, or your partner likes to move around during the night, a larger double bed may be more suitable. As such, small double beds are an extra luxurious treat for single sleepers who love that extra bit of room to stretch out and snooze!
What storage options are there with a small double bed frame?
Despite the word “small” in the name, a small double bed frame can still pack a powerful punch when it comes to storage solutions. At Time4Sleep, we have a variety of Ottoman small double beds which provide a handy and concealed storage space beneath the bed. Small double bed frames can also come with built-in shelves or drawers at the side or foot of the bedframe and some frames have enough underbed clearance to tuck away suitcases, storage boxes or the odd stray sock!
What size bedding should I use on a small double bed?
Also known as a queen bed, a UK small double bed measures in at 15cm thinner than a UK double at 120 x 190cm – a UK double measuring 135 x 190cm. A small double can often prove difficult to find the perfect bedding for as it’s a more specialist size than a standard single or double, however there are many brands who cater for this space-savvy bed size!
For example, while a standard UK double duvet is 200cm wide, a small double duvet is 170cm wide by comparison and 220cm long. However, to avoid any fuss, we would recommend simply purchasing a UK double duvet and cover to fit your small double bed as it will nicely drape over the edges of your bed and come in handy if you share your room with a duvet hogger!
