As a very wise person once said: you are either in your bed or in your shoes, so it pays to invest in both. If you’re looking to buy the latter, you can’t go wrong with the eternally classic and much-loved double bed.

Roomy enough for couples and extra spacious for singles, double beds are a perfect choice for a master or guest bedroom. But don’t be fooled – although a common choice of bed size, our range of double beds have a few tricks up their sleeves to truly transform your space. From built-in storage options to statement upholstering and even concealed TV screens, we take a look at how you can get the most out of your double bed so you’re sure to find your perfect fit.

Benefits of Double Beds

Larger than a single bed, double beds are a great option for one or two people. Measuring in 4 feet 6 inches wide and 6 feet 3 inches long, a double bed has more than enough room for a couple to cuddle up come bedtime, or lots of space for a solo sleeper to starfish to their heart’s content.

Plus, they don’t take up too much valuable floor space in your bedroom, leaving plenty of room for accompanying furniture such as a dressing table, bed side cabinet or a chest of drawers. If you’re looking to maximise space and comfort, a double bed is a surefire way to add a little finesse to your bedroom setup.
