If you are interested in the size of a double bed or double bed size and dimensions, Gotta Sleep has an amazing guide to help you find the right size bed for your needs.
So let's get started!
What Is a Double Bed?
A Double bed is the standard size for single sleepers.
In other words, it's bigger than a twin mattress (and even a twin XL mattress) but smaller than a queen.
But why is this bed called a "double" bed when it's designed for single sleepers.
Well, you can fit two people on a Double bed. However, many people sharing their bed with someone else want a little more space to spread out. Because of this, most married couples or other bed sharers have queen beds instead.
But don't let the Double bed's name throw you off.
A Double bed can also be called a Full bed. Many people use the two names interchangeably. So if you fo shopping for a Double bed but can't find one in the store, look for a Full bed instead.
Though the names are different, Double and Full beds are the exact same size.
