Roomy Double and King Size Beds

Every day we natter away on the phone or in our showroom about bed sizes. The majority of people aren't totally sure what the difference is between a double bed, a queen size bed (which isn't actually a UK size at all), a king size bed or a super king size bed.

Given that different countries have various names for their bed sizes, and even alternate between the metric and imperial measurement systems, it's hardly surprising that people are confused. To make life simpler, we only offer standard UK sizes. Not only does this save a lot of headache, but it also makes it easier for you to mix and match mattresses and bedding over time.

Snuggling Up: Double Bed or King Size?

As a general rule of thumb we always tell people to try and get as big a bed as possible. Double beds are quite practical and are particularly popular in London where people tend to live in smaller flats. A double bed works well for people who don't have a lot of room but want more sleeping space than a single bed. And it's true that the bed frames aren't too overbearing in small to medium size rooms. And with more width than single beds, double beds are also a logical step up from children's beds for growing teenagers.

But according to the large majority of our customers, king size beds are where it's at. This could seem strange given that most people don't have huge rooms to fit bigger pieces of furniture. But we reckon it's because a king size bed lets you stretch out just so much more than a double bed that people aren't prepared to hold back. Given that one spends a third of one's life in bed (or more like half if you're anything like us when we were students), it's hardly surprising that king size beds are such a shoo-in for the most popular prize.

We would recommend though that, before you buy any bed, you measure your bedroom to ensure it won't be more of a proverbial elephant in the room than the gorgeous addition it should be.

All this probably sounds really obvious, but we get asked every day so thought we'd mention it!
