What size bed is right for me?
The right size bed for you can depend on factors including your age, how tall or large you are and your personal
preference. You should also consider the size of your room and the maximum floor space you have available.
If you share a bed with your partner, then a double bed is recommended as a minimum.
Doubles can sleep two adults comfortably. If floor space is limited, then a double bed will work great in your
bedroom. If you prefer to spread out and you have the room, then king bed frames offer the luxury of that little
bit extra sleeping space.
Super king size beds are our largest and most generous offering in terms of space. These are perfect if you are
taller, or you just like to starfish across the bed at night, without annoying your other half!
If you are an adult solo sleeper, then a double bed or a small double will give you plenty of room to spread out
comfortably. A small double bed is also a good option for a teenager’s bedroom.
If you are buying a bed for a child over 5 then you could consider a small single or a standard single bed. Small
single beds are great for toddlers, while single beds can see older children through to adulthood.
What types of bed frame are there?
Some of the most popular types of bed frame include divan beds, ottoman beds, TV beds, adjustable beds and
standard bed frames. All of our bed frames provide a great way to inject on-trend style into your bedroom.
TV beds are ideal for anyone who loves a TV binge in
bed! They come with televisions discretely hidden in the footboard of the bed which rise at the touch of a button!
Perfect for duvet days and lazy Sundays.
If you struggle with joint pain or back pain, then an adjustable bed can offer extra support with just the touch
of a button. You can even get adjustable beds for couples which allow each side to be adjusted independently of
For kids, bunk beds are a great option for siblings who share a room. And trundle beds are great for impromptu
sleepovers, as they come with an additional pull-out bed.
What is a divan bed?
A divan bed is one which has
storage drawers underneath it. So, if you are looking for extra storage space, then a divan bed could be the
perfect match for you.
Most divan beds have integrated storage drawers in the base of the bed. Ottoman beds also come with discreet
storage – simply lift up the mattress to discover an easy to access, mattress sized space for storing seasonal
clothing, additional bedding, towels and even shoes.
Choose from divans with 1, 2 or even 2 + 2 drawers, depending on your needs. At Bensons for Beds, our divan bed
sets also come with a mattress included in the price.
What is the biggest bed size?
The biggest bed size available at Bensons for Beds is a super king size bed. These beds measure 180 x 200cm and
have plenty of room for two adults to stretch out fully, without disturbing each other.
Super king size beds are great additions to large bedrooms and can be a real centrepiece in your interior décor.
