A Guide to UK Bed and Bedding Sizes

We’ve all been there. Trying so hard to stretch a fitted sheet over the mattress, finally succeeding, then waking up the morning after to find that most of the bed sheet is now crumpled up underneath us.

It can be so difficult to find out which bedding size and fit you need. With many retailers, manufacturers, online blogs and more producing different information, identifying the linen sizes that fit your bed can be confusing and frustrating. This is why we’ve created a simple, clear guide to help you to find the perfect match for your bed.

UK Single Bed Size

In the UK, a standard single bed measures 3ft wide and 6ft 3” in length (90cm x 190cm). Single beds are ideal for smaller rooms, allowing you to create more space in your bedroom. They are also the standard size for most bunk beds and are predominantly used by children.  


UK Double Bed Size

Double beds are the most popular bed size of them all. Measuring 4ft 6” across and 6ft 3” long (135cm x 190cm), they’re a well suited size for many couples. Often, couples choose to purchase a King size duvet for their double bed as opposed to a standard double. This decision is often made with the sole intention of preventing their duvet-hogging partner from stealing all of the quilt!  


UK King Size Bed

King size beds are perfect for those of us who enjoy a little luxury in our slumber. They measure at 5ft wide and are a whopping 6ft 6” long (150cm x 200cm), which makes them a necessity for taller people who don’t want cold toes!
