Ensuring your bed measures up
Before buying a bed, some of the key considerations you have to make first revolve around its size. Will it meet your own height requirements? Fit in your bedroom? Will have no problem being carried into your property? This page is dedicated to helping you answer those questions and find the right size bed to suit your tastes, budget and available living space.
Bed sizes to choose from
Our beds are available in six sizes that you can see in the box below. To help you measure up and understand your available bedroom space, all our beds come with width and length dimensions in feet, inches and centimetres.
How big should my bed be?
As a general rule, it’s a good idea to choose a bed that’s 10-15cm longer than the tallest person sleeping in it. Why? Because the more room you have in bed, the better you’ll sleep!
How will I get my bed into the bedroom?
We’ll do it. And we don’t mean dropping it off on your doorstep. Your bed will be carried into your room of choice and put together by us, if assembly is required.

Now choose a bed style and mattress
Divans are renowned for their simple styling, comfort and discreet storage. Their compact square base can comfortably fit into tight spaces, and often feature drawers with generous storage within the base. You can personalise your divan with some delightful finishing touches, from headboards to wooden legs. At Bensons for Beds, we also feature a more colourful range of upholstery options for extra standout and style. All our divans are available in small single size (75cm wide) and upwards. And for ease of manoeuvrability, our double divans can be split in two.
Bed frames come in a wide range of styles and materials, from sleek and contemporary metal to warm and inviting wood. They are generally a more decorative option than a divan and add plenty of character to your bedroom décor. Bed frames tend to be large, so - before purchasing - it’s best to check whether your choice of bed will fit the room once it’s been assembled.
Comfort and support is key when getting a healthy night’s sleep, so choosing your ideal mattress is essential. Your mattress needs to be compatible with your choice of bed, whether that is a divan or bed frame. Get the dimensions of both your mattress and bed base to make sure they match. You can test them yourself in your nearest store at one of our Comfort Stations – where you can take an easy three-step process to help you find the right mattress or bed.
