If you have a teenager at home or a child that simply wants more room when sleeping, it makes sense to get them a double or small double size bed for their bedroom. This way they will have more sleeping space and will feel more comfortable as they grow up well into their teenage years.
Kids Small Double vs. Double Bed
The majority of kids beds come in single size (3′) which measures 90cm wide x 190cm long. However you can also get a small double bed (3’6) which fits a mattress with size: 120cm wide by 190cm long. This is 30 cm wider, which will provide more space for child to sleep. You can also get a double size bed (4’6), which fits mattress size: 135cm x 190cm. Before you choose the size for your kid’s bedroom, make sure you measure the space you have in the room, so that you’re sure it will fit properly. If you have two kids at home, you can also opt for getting them a double bunk bed, which has a double on top of double bunk bed design.
Now let’s check out some of the best kids double and small double beds!
