Best Three Quarter and Double Beds

The perfect 3/4 or double bed for your youngster is only a few clicks away!

Our “grown up” beds are perfect for kids who’d like to have that extra bit of space. Nowadays children of all ages are appreciating the benefits and indulgence of a bigger bed. At Nest, we range a variety of stylish and functional 3/4 and double beds that will see them through from tween years to adulthood. 

What is a typical 3/4 and double bed size?

  • 3/4 bed mattress size is 120cm in width x 190cm in length
  • double bed mattress size is 140cm in width x 190cm in length, which is also the standard size for an adult’s double bed

Nest also offers extra length options (200cmL). Extra length beds are a practical solution for a tall human. And they can be 13! 

What age can a child have a double bed?

Experts suggest that a double bed can be suitable for any child above the age of 3+.

What are some of the benefits of having a double bed for a child?

  1. As a double bed is obviously a larger piece of furniture, they are more suited to bedrooms that are more spacious.
  2. If your child is moving from a single bed, then gaining an extra 50cm of sleeping surface will mean extra room to toss and turn as they please.
  3. A double bed also offers a practical benefit by providing space for you to sleep alongside your youngster during sleepless nights or when they are ill and they just want a parent. Being nearby can make a sick child feel more secure and more likely to sleep through the night.
  4. Some double beds come with lower-to-ground frames, making it easier for smaller children to climb in and out.
  5. Kids grow really fast, so keeping up with a bed size that suits their needs can be costly. Investing in a double bed during your child’s early years will mean you won’t need to upgrade when they hit high school. Double beds therefore provide longevity, lasting well into teenage years and beyond for most.
  6. Double beds for kids also provide a sense of maturity and adulthood and if you also involve your child in helping to choose their own bed, bedtime may just become more exciting and you’ll never have to nag your child to hit the hay again!
  7. Some of our double beds have integrated compartments, shelves and cubby holes. Clever design features like this will allow the sleeper to transform their bed into a multi-functional piece of furniture without taking up any more precious floor space. Perfect for keeping night-time essentials within easy reach too.
