What are the dimensions of a Double size bed?
One of the most common mattress sizes, a double mattress measures in at 135 centimetres by 190 centimetres. Slightly larger than a small double mattress, this size comfortably sleeps two adults without pets or a single adult with pets. It allows ample room to stretch, although larger sleepers or those who prefer more space may want to consider a larger mattress.
Who is a Double mattress suitable for?
Since it easily fits one or two adults, this size is ideal if you have a partner or a large pet. If you prefer more sleeping space, it may be best to consider a king mattress. However, many couples find a double mattress offers enough room for a variety of sleeping positions. A double bed also makes sense for a single adult who sleeps with several small pets.
Double vs. King
Debating between a king mattress and a double size mattress? Both provide the same length, but a king is 15 centimetres wider than a double. If you sleep with a partner and pets, a king will likely be more comfortable for all. If you sleep with just a partner or just pets, a double should be sufficient.
Double vs. Small Double
Compared to a small double mattress, a standard double has added width. A standard double bed is 15 centimetres wider than a small double mattress. Both are ideal for a single adult, but a double will be more enjoyable if you sleep with a partner or pet.
