How big is a Double and Kingsize Bed?

Double Divan Beds - what is the standard?

Most people will have some kind of double sized bed in the UK, but what is the standard when it comes to the actual width and length of a double or Kingsize bed?

Well, a standard double size bed is 4'6" x 6'3".   A small double is 4'0" x 6'3" - not so much room in these but useful if you have a small bedroom.  Then you have the Kingsize bed which is 5'0" x 6'6" - a little bit wider and longer than a standard double bed.  Up from that is the Super Kingsize being 6'0" x 6'6" - room for the whole family in that one!

European double sizes are usually slightly different in width and length: a small double is 4'0" x 6'6", a standard double 4'7" x 6'6", a King 5'3" x 6'6" and Grand King 5'11" x 6'6".  They're not widely available in the UK but you can get them made to order.  

If you want a custom sized double divan then you can check out some of our special sizes here on this website.  Typically our custom sizes work in 3" increments for example:  4'3" x 6'9", or 5'0" x 6'0", 4'9" x 6'3" and so on. 

Whilst some of the European sizes don't work to this sizing (4'7" & 5'11" widths), we can still make a divan in this size, but you would need to purchase some kind of foam mattress to fit as they can be cut to any size, whereas the sprung mattress sizing needs to be in 3" increments.

Any other size you require working in 3" increments we can make for you and you can get any of our mattresses to fit.

The depth of each divan varies very slightly according to the mattress height.  The base itself  is a 14" platform top which includes chrome gliders and you can decide whether or not you want storage drawers. 

Choose your fully customisable divan bed from our complete range.  We'll do our best to make it to your specifications.  The fabrics and colours can be mixed and matched to suit the headboard and footends as required.  

If you can't see a fabric or colour you like you can send us your own fabric - just mention that when you talk to us.  We can also send you swatches of our fabrics for you to get a closer look before you buy.
