A space all to yourself, filled with comfort and gets you lost in paradise. That's the definition of a double bed from IKEA. With a variety of options beginning from the size, materials, frames, colours, design, and patterns our collections have a hold of the perfect double bed you may have in mind. A double bed is not too big and not too small. It fits your room perfectly, acting like a centrepiece and the hub of happiness. During your afternoon naps and your movie nights, for reading and gossip chats, a double bed is a great companion through it all. While you’re considering all the possible choices you have to make while getting a double bed for your room, we hope to enlighten you on all the double bed information you’ll need. Starting from comfort to size to your design, a double bed is a package of a lot more than just a piece held together by nuts and bolts.
Starting with the dimensions, the types, its features and why you need them, IKEA is sure to help you find the one.
Standard double bed size
When considering a double bed its usual size ranges from 6 feet (190 cm-200 cm) long and 4 feet (135 -140 cm) wide. It is a comfortable space for an individual to enjoy all to himself and for two people to share. A twin bed when put together, however, may look like a double bed from afar and have the same length, but a double bed is fifteen inches wider than a twin bed. And though going for a twin bed may sound like a good option, you might end up falling through the cracks. The king-size double beds on the other hand are on a whole different dimension of their own. Double beds are usually preferred to be used by a single person, giving them enough space to twist, turn and roll around the clock.
Full size or a double bed would perfectly fit a room size of a minimum of the nine-metre square area. Placing your bed in the centre allows you to design all your furniture and help keep them in the right spots, with proper distancing and enough room for free movement across the room.
Your double bed can even be accompanied by a sophisticated headrest made of sustainable pine wood and is a wonderful piece for your guest bedroom or living room. Except, wondering what a bed is doing in the living room? Or, perhaps you want to squeeze a double bed into your tiny room? IKEA’s unique collections have daybeds that look like a couch but are also double cot beds on transformation! These are not just any regular double bed, and while they may look much like a single couch when unpacked, when you pull the bed out from underneath, you can fit another person on your new transformed double bed! They are perfect for when your friends and family come over to spend the weekend or the holidays at your place. By using these types of double beds you can save space and use your living spaces optimally.

For those of us with more compact living quarters, and cosier-sized bedrooms or studio apartments, it is a given that we make do with a single bed to save on space or just sleep on the floor. We understand that space is precious, and a standard-sized double bed takes up a lot of it. But have you considered double bed frames with built-in storage solutions?

These beds also minimize your cleaning time causing you no longer have to worry about or bend your back to clean the dust accumulated underneath the bed. They keep your room tidy, and stylish and give your bed space a composed and sophisticated look. Storage doesn't always have to be underneath. Most double beds come with soft and upholstered headrests. You can exchange those for those headrests with shelves or hidden cupboards to store your novel collections or your jewellery before bed. The structure of the storage unit attached below or behind the double beds blends with the overall frame of the bed. It is almost like they are camouflaged.
