Why choose double bed frames?
Larger than small bed frames and smaller than both king and super king size bed frames, the double sized frame is a popular option in many bedrooms. A double bed measures 4 feet 6 inches (135cm) wide and 6 feet 3 inches (190cm) long. These measurements are fine for most bedrooms (apart from smaller ones) and will provide plenty of room for couples when they sleep at night.
What are the main bed frame options?
Here are some of the main options you have when buying double bed frames:
Material – wood and metal are the two main double bed frames types:
Wooden – choose from popular woods such as oak, acacia, pine, and walnut
Metal – another popular option is metal; this is hard-wearing and great aesthetically
Upholstering – the basic wood/metal frame can be upholstered:
Fabric upholstered – fabrics such as velvet, linen, chenille, and others cover the frame
Leather upholstered – a layer of leather is added for extra strength, style, and durability
Additional sleeping – buy double bed frames that provide an option for extra sleeping space:
Double bunk bed – a double bed base, with either a single or double bed on top
Trundle or pull-out bed – another bed slides out underneath the double bed frame as and when required (e.g., when you have an unexpected guest or sleepovers)
Divan base – a double bed with dedicated drawers underneath for storage purposes
Ottoman – the double bed frame lifts up to reveal a hidden compartment underneath
Platform – the double bed frame is raised (on a platform), leaving space underneath for storage and other purposes. This space may or may not have drawers
Loft bed – with a loft bed an attached ladder is used to climb to the double bed. This leaves space underneath, possibly for a desk, and maximises the utilisation of space – this is ideal in smaller bedrooms
