What to consider when buying a double bed?
Sitting slap-bang in between a single bed and a king-sized bed, a double bed is an ideal solution for single sleepers craving for more room and couples who don’t quite have the space for anything bigger. There’s often a lot more choice when it comes to choosing a frame for double beds, with its W135cm x L190cm mattress sizing giving designers more scope to come up with something extra special.
Double bed frames come in various different shapes, with footed and unfooted bases, solid or slatted headboards and open, solid or sleigh styles being the most common stylistic variations.
Those who want their bed to be a dramatic centrepiece may want to opt for something with a striking headboard – perhaps something that's velvet or a uniquely shaped headboard? If you want to create the illusion of more space, go for a bed that has no footboard, and for something with space underneath as they allow for natural light flow. Need more storage room? See our storage headboards guide to inspire your choice. Alternatively, there are lots of storage beds out there.
