Small Double Mattresses

If you're looking for small double mattresses that don't break the bank — or your back — you will certainly find the perfect solution in our range. Our high-quality, extra comfy small double mattresses are made-to measure right here in the United Kingdom!

Also known as three-quarter or queen size mattresses in the UK, the small double size typically has the same mattress length as a double, with a width that is wider than a single but smaller than a double. The mattress depth, on the other hand, will depend on the individual mattresses and their design.

The Charm of a Small Double Bed & Mattress

Small double is the perfect mattress size for so many different situations. It is a very popular choice for those looking for a mattress that will see their kids from childhood into adolescence — thus also saving you money in the long term because you won't have to replace their kids' bed with a bigger bed as they grow up.

A small double bed frame is also a great option for smaller bedrooms or multi-purpose rooms, such as a guest room, home study, or games room. Whether you're wanting to replace an old mattress and create extra space in your bedroom or invest in a versatile mattress that works with a kid's bed frame, small double mattresses are the way to go.

Types of Small Double Mattress in our Collection

Finding the perfect small double mattress is based on more than just its size. There are many varieties of queen mattresses available, from those made with memory foam to others made with coils or springs. With many materials used to make up the various mattresses, knowing the differences can help you find a mattress that will deliver true sleeping comfort for you night after night.

Here is what you can expect from the different types of small double mattresses in our range:

Small Double Memory Foam Mattresses

A memory foam mattress can help with a number of issues, which is why it is such a popular option. Memory foam is best known for being soft and plush, a property which lets your body sink into the bed and allows the bed to conform to your body shape. This means that it can aid with pressure relief.

A small double mattress made with memory foam is also good for retaining heat, which is a plus for sleepers who get cold during the night.

Small Double Pocket Sprung Mattresses

A pocket sprung (or pocket spring) mattress is one that is made up of hundreds or thousands of individual springs, each contained in its own pocket.

While many confuse pocket sprung mattresses with bonnell spring or open coil mattresses, they are completely different in build and functionality. The biggest difference is that the coils of the open coil variety are all connected.

Contrary to a memory foam mattress, a small double pocket sprung mattress is the ideal choice for those who get hot at night, as it offers exceptional breathability and airflow to keep you cool and comfortable.

Small Double Orthopaedic Mattresses

Our small double mattress range includes both orthopaedic and semi-orthopaedic mattresses.

This type of mattress is often chosen because it offers enhanced spinal support and pressure relief, a must for those who suffer from back or joint pains and other ailments. In order to achieve this, it is usually not as soft as foam mattresses.

A small double orthopaedic mattress is often made using the same system as an open coil mattress, but there are many options available.

Small Double Hybrid Mattresses

It isn't necessary that small double mattresses be only one of these types. You could have a small double foam mattress that uses reflex foam and memory foam, or an orthopaedic mattress that is topped with one of these foams as well in order to combine the benefits.

Choosing the right mattress for a bed will depend on who will be sleeping on it and what their comfort needs are. Some are very versatile, providing comfort to most people, while others deliver a more specific set of benefits, such as those focused on pain pressure relief.

Whatever your sleeping needs are, when you shop online with Home Detail, you are sure to find small double mattresses that provide the comfort and support you need!

Small Double Mattress Features for Ultimate Comfort

Luxurious comfort means something different to every person — and our collection of small double mattresses has something for everyone. No matter what you need to get a good night's sleep, we have the mattress for you.

These are some of the features you can find in our small double mattresses that support your sleep needs.

Hypoallergenic Materials

Did you know that memory foam is an allergy-resistant material?

Many of our small double mattresses are made with hypoallergenic materials like this and with natural fillings like wool and cotton so you can have an allergy-free sleep.

Temperature Regulation

A breathable mattress is a must for those who run hot when sleeping.

With a pocket spring small double mattress on your bed, you can ensure that your body temperature is regulated and that you receive adequate airflow through the night.

Edge to Edge Support

Our hand-tufted small double mattresses have edge-to-edge support, so you can sleep securely every night.

Without the feeling of rolling off your bed, the added resistance along the edges of your mattress will ensure support, comfort, and peace of mind.

Small Double Mattress Firmness Levels

No one body is the same as another, and everybody has a different weight, shape, and preferred sleeping position.

To account for this and help buyers find the right fit for their comfort needs, mattresses have different firmness ratings. These are usually:

  • soft

  • medium firm

  • firm

  • extra firm

Medium firm is the most popular choice for guest rooms because they are most likely to cater to the needs of most sleepers.


Buying a new mattress ultimately affects both your nights and your days, so choosing the right one is super important. We've put together some frequently asked questions below to help you make the right decision when you shop for a new mattress.

How do you choose a small double mattress based on sleeping positions?

The best small double mattress for you will depend largely on your sleeping position and body shape. While there are different mattress firmness ratings (e.g. a soft, medium firm, or extra firm small double mattress), the materials used also affect the level of comfort and support your mattress will provide.

Side sleepers tend to find soft or medium firm memory foam and hybrid mattresses most comfortable, while a firm open coil or bonnell spring mattress is good for back sleepers and stomach sleepers.

Can a small double mattress sleep two adults?

While a small double mattress can fit two adults, it will be a bit of a tight fit.

If you want to get the maximum comfort out of your small double mattress and want to ensure a great night's sleep every night, it should ideally be used as a one-sleeper.

Are small double beds only meant for children?

The beauty of a small double mattress is that the size is perfect for young kids, teenagers, and adults.

It is practically a one-size-fits-all option for single sleepers!
