Small Double Mattresses – The Better Beds Ultimate Buying Guide


At Better Bed Company, we specialise in many different sizes and shapes of mattresses. We’ve got a straightforward mantra – we believe in Better Beds for all!

In our latest buying guide, we’re discussing all things small double mattresses. We love a small double mattress at Better Beds; it’s the ‘Goldilocks’ standard of mattress!

But before you decide that a small double mattress is the mattress of choice for you, there are a few questions that you need to ask yourself first…

Size of sleepers!

One question to consider is how tall the users of your small double mattress are going to be. For people six feet and taller, you may need a more specialist mattress.

Otherwise, there may be some toes sticking out of bed more often than you’d like!

Available Space

When considering a small double mattress, it’s essential to think about the space you’ll be using for the mattress and space you will not. We call this ‘moving space’.

Make sure that you’ve got enough room to open doors/use wardrobes etc. It’s important to give yourself enough breathing space to move around your room. This is helpful with decluttering and give you more options when it comes to room layout and design.

Bed Storage

Smaller bedrooms can feel cluttered really quickly; an overnight bag and a few other bits can take away from your perfectly planned guest room.

The great thing with a small double mattress is that they can easily be accompanied/turned into a ‘storage bed’, more commonly known as an Ottoman Bed.
