What is a Queen Sized Mattress?

A queen size mattress seems to be an area of confusion due to the term meaning different things across Europe and the US. A 4ft small double mattress or 4ft bed is commonly know as Queen size. In recent times the term queen size has been used to describe King Size 5ft or Super King 6ft beds, but this has come across from US influences, with queen size traditionally being 4ft in the UK.

The size of our small double mattresses are 120cm wide and 190cm long. In imperial measurements, this is 4 feet 0 inches wide and 6 feet 3 inches long (4'0" x 6'3") making it the same length as a single mattress, but 30cm / 12in wider. The small double mattress is a popular choice amongst teenagers as it gives that extra room to spread out without taking up too much space in the bedroom.

Types of small double mattresses

We stock a wide selection of small double mattresses with the most popular choices being traditional open coil models, pocket sprung models, and memory foam models. Many of our pocket spring models are also memory foam topped or memory foam encapsulated - giving a firmer feel to these mattresses.

All our mattresses are UK made and are standard small double sized. All our small double mattresses can also be purchased as complete beds, with several package deal beds also available as small double size.
