Small Double Mattresses
Small double mattresses are an ideal option for those who want a mattress that is a bit bigger than a single, but not quite the size of a double. If your bedroom doesn't have a huge amount of space but you want a bit more room in your bed, then picking a small double mattress is the best way forward.
Choosing a small double mattress is great for children as it gives them a bit more room to play with, helping them feel more grown up. They are an excellent option for utilising the space you have in a room without filling it with a double bed that may look too large and feel very cramped.
Small Double Mattress Types
Buying a suitable small double mattress is essential for getting a good night's sleep. There are different types available, which include pocket spring mattresses that are made from small, individual springs housed in their own pockets of fabric. They provide plenty of support and are nice and breathable.
Open spring mattresses contain a continuous wire coiled into lots of springs and they are nice and light to turn, while memory foam mattresses are usually made from hypoallergenic materials, which are mouldable to the shape of your body. Your sleeping position, height and weight will help determine the most suitable type of small double mattress suitable for you.
Soft, Medium and Hard
Soft small double mattresses are great if you like to sleep on your side or change positions a lot in the night to help support your spine; medium mattresses provide more general support and are good for those who often turn to sleeping on their backs. Firm mattresses are good for people who have back problems or like to sleep on their front and those who don't like to sink into the mattress.
