Small double beds for a good night's sleep

4ft small double beds are ideal for those looking for a little more space while still leaving room in a smaller bedroom. At Happy Beds, your good night's sleep is our priority, so our range of 3/4 beds is expertly crafted to guarantee the style and quality you deserve. Whether you opt for a small double kids bed to accommodate your growing children, a small double guest bed to ensure guests sleep comfortably, or you'd like a small double bed in your room, our beds promise comfort.

Small double beds and mattresses at Happy Beds

As well as your small double bed frame and base, at Happy Beds, we also sell a selection of small double bed mattresses so that you can find the perfect size for your new bed. Head to our small double mattress collection to complete your bed set-up. So, from the first time you snuggle into your small double bed and for the years to come, you can enjoy the sleep of your dreams.

What size is a small double bed?

Also sometimes referred to as a ‘three-quarter' size bed, a queen bed, or a 4ft bed frame, a small double bed is the halfway point between a single and a double. It is 4ft (120cm, 48") in width x 6'3" (190cm, 75") in length, meaning you can enjoy more room to stretch out than with a single while still enjoying space-saving benefits. They are best suited to sleeping one person who loves stretching out at night!

What is the difference between a double and a small double bed?

The main difference between a double bed and a small double bed is size. Whilst a small double bed frame measures 120cm (4ft) wide by 190cm (6ft 3ins) long, a double bed measures 135cm (4ft 6ins) by 190cm (6ft 3ins), making it slightly wider.

Is a ¾ bed the same as a small double bed frame?

Yes! A ¾ bed measures the same as a small double bed frame. Small double beds are also known as queen beds or even 4ft bed frames.

Is a small double bed equal to a queen size bed?

Yes - in the UK, a queen bed frame is effectively a small double bed frame. They both measure 120cm (4ft) wide by 190cm (6ft 3ins) long.

Is a small double bed right for me?

Finding the right bed for you is about your sleeping style and the space you have to work with. If you have a smaller bedroom but are a fan of starfishing or lounging in bed, our 4ft beds are a great option. They're bigger than a single but not quite as big as a double, allowing for more floor space and room for additional bedroom furniture.

Is a small double bed too small?

Whether or not a small double bed is too small will depend entirely on personal preference. It also depends on the physical build of whoever shares the bed - if anyone! Generally speaking, small double beds can sleep two individuals if you're willing to compromise slightly on space during the night. Small double bed frames are the perfect alternative to a traditional kids' bed or are ideal for guest bedrooms!

Consider all the different factors - such as who it’s for and its intended space - that may help you decide if a small double bed is right for you, then weigh up your options!

What types of small double beds are available?

4ft small double beds, thanks to their size, are very versatile, so there are quite a few options you can choose from, including:

  • Small Double Bunk Beds - if you have older children, or want a more spacious option for guests, then a small double bunk bed could be ideal. They're the same as a regular bunk bed but wider, making them suitable for adults, teens, or sleepers who love their space.
  • Small Double Storage Beds - A small double bed with storage ensures you have space to sleep and store away all your clothes, kids' toys and other bits and bobs. Small double ottoman beds are popular as the base lifts so the whole space under the mattress can be used for storage, which is particularly useful in smaller bedrooms. We also have small doubles available with handy drawers.
  • Small Double Kids Beds - a small double kids bed has plenty of room to accommodate growing children, meaning you won't have to worry about replacing the bed anytime soon.
  • Small Double Guest Beds - provide a little extra space for visitors with a small double guest bed.
  • Small Double Day Beds - combining the look of a bed with the functionality of a sofa, our small double day beds are suitable for any room.
  • Small Double Folding Beds - our small double folding beds offer plenty of space for guests to sleep comfortably for a night whilst also saving on space in your home thanks to their folded design!
  • Small Double Divan Beds - a small double divan bed is easy to set-up and a versatile option to suit any bedroom, as it is available in a range of colours and materials.

What materials are small double beds available in?

We have several materials at Happy Beds to suit your bedroom's aesthetic, including:

  • Small Double Wooden Beds - accommodating a wide range of styles and colours, our small double wooden beds are guaranteed to suit any bedroom. Opt for a painted wooden bed for a more contemporary feel or choose the warm tones of natural wood to add timeless class to your room.
  • Small Double Metal Beds - ideal for contemporary interiors or more traditional décor, our small double metal beds are versatile. Metal beds are some of the most affordable, so you can stay within your budget without compromising style.
  • Small Double Fabric Beds - make sure you can sleep comfortably whilst adding beautiful style to your bedroom with a small double fabric bed. Designed to add luxury to any bedroom, fabric beds are available in various colours ranging from neutral white to on-trend grey beds.
  • Small Double Velvet Beds - available in our range of fabric beds, get the wow factor in your bedroom with a stunningly beautiful small double velvet bed. Upholstered in opulent fabrics, these stylish beds are perfect for adding glamour to even the smallest of bedrooms.

What size mattress do I need for a small double bed?

While small double beds are as long as doubles, they're slightly less wide, so a double mattress won't fit correctly. If you buy a small double bed, you should choose a specific small double mattress. These measure 4' x 6'3", making them perfect for your new small double bed frame. Our small double mattress collection at Happy Beds includes various spring types and firmness levels, so you can customise your small double bed to your sleeping preferences.

Make sure to choose the correct firmness level as well, as a firm mattress might work for some but not others!

Can two adults share a small double bed?

A 4ft small double bed can accommodate two people if needed. Keep in mind that the sleeping space of a small double is around six inches narrower than a double bed so two adults sharing will certainly feel cosier. However, there’s still plenty of space to sleep comfortably.

Small double beds are an especially popular choice for teenagers or single adults. If you need help deciding between a single or double bed, a small double bed frame offers the perfect middle ground.

Can a child use a small double bed?

Yes, many homes find that small double bed frames are perfect for young children who want a ‘grown-up’ bed. They are also ideal for teenagers in that awkward stage between a kid’s and adult bed frame, giving them a little more space to accommodate their growing bodies (and their newfound love of sleep!)

Can you fit two pillows on a small double bed?

Yes! Although two pillows may look closer together than on a standard double bed frame, you can style them in many different ways. Or, if you prefer, you can buy 4ft pillows designed specifically for smaller bed frames.

Is a small double bed frame best for you? We've broken down all the measurements, features and characteristics in our comprehensive bed size guide, so read that if you need clarification.
