Why is the double bed so popular?

Most people decide that the double bed is the one for them. They pursue one, then purchase another, never feeling the need to invest in a different size. And that makes us wonder: what is it about the double bed that pulls people in? Why is it so popular when other beds could be seen as more efficient (the twin bed) or more luxurious and spacious (the king size bed)? Therefore, here at Furnitureful we’ve decided to write this blog to highlight what it is about the double bed exactly that makes it such a hit with large swathes of consumers and whether or not it is something that is the bed for you. We’ll also give a balanced appraisal of the pros and cons of the double bed so that you can walk away with a clear idea of what it’s all about. So, without further ado, let’s get into it!

What is the size of a double bed?

A double bed is a bed size that falls between a single bed and a queen bed. Although not the largest bed on the market, it has fairly spacious dimensions, coming in at a length of 190 cm and a width of 135 cm. 

Personally, we couldn’t recommend this bed size enough and recommend that you check out our range of Ottoman double beds with mattresses here.

Also known as the full bed, it is primarily targeted towards couples.

Is it better value than other beds?

Now, if you're a single individual looking to save money, then probably not. However, if you're a couple and you want to buy something that will truly last and give you a good night’s rest, then a double bed is the one for you! We’ve considered many factors when assessing the value of a double bed against other beds such as space, price and privacy and we’re sure that you’ll be able to pick out its suitability for you based on your circumstances.

In terms of space, without a doubt, the double beats most beds whether for single people or couples because you can never have too much room, can you? 

Most double beds tend to be mid-range in terms of price. Be mindful of this and yet, the value of a double bed is difficult to beat, making it well worth the price.

For those couples keen on room and privacy, a king size or even a super king size may be the best choice overall. Most couples make do with a double, but if you have the cash (or a desire for space!) then what’s stopping you from buying a bed whose popularity speaks for itself?
