What size is a double mattress?
The size of a double mattress is 135cm wide and 190cm long. In imperial measurements, this is 4 feet 6 inches wide and 6 feet 3 inches long (4'6" x 6'3") making it the same length as a single mattress, but 45cm / 18in wider. This size of mattress is often referred to as a 4ft 6 mattress. It's the most popular mattress size for average-sized bedrooms as well as being the most popular size of all UK sales.
How to choose a double mattress?
When shopping for a double bed mattress, there are a few important factors to consider to make sure you make the right purchase:
- Decide who the mattress is for. You should have 10cm (4 inches) of space between the end of the mattress and your feet. If you are taller than 180cm (5'11"), you will be more comfortable with a king size or superking mattress if you have the space available
- Select the right firmness level for you. Choose from softer, medium, medium-firm and firmer double mattresses. Some of our mattresses are available with split tensions (i.e. Medium on the left and Firm on the right) if each user has a different preference - See our Harrison Spinks mattresses for further details
- Choose your mattress type. You can choose from a variety of options, including memory foam, natural latex's, pocket sprung mattresses, natural mattresses and much more!

Choosing your Double Mattress
All our quality mattresses offer excellent comfort and support, whether you're looking for a mattress for yourself, a new mattress for the guest room, or upgrading from a single mattress we're sure to have the mattress to suit your needs. All our mattresses get their primary support from their spring units (open coil or pocket sprung), with comfort layers of memory foam, gel, or natural fillings.
Your body shape will dictate which firmness is best for you, with lighter bodies requiring a softer support than heavier bodies. Memory foam mattresses are generally warmer than gel, latex or natural mattresses, which is both a benefit or a drawback depending on your preferences. The best advice as with all mattresses is to try before you buy, which you can do in our Flintshire store 7 days a week.
