So finding the perfect double bed frame can sometimes be a bit of a minefield. The team here at UK Bed Store have pulled together a collection of their favourites. From the one they have at home, to the ones they wish they had at home.

LPD Prado Plus – When sharing a room (or a bed) space is always key. Our ottoman beds have increased in popularity for this reason. That’s why the Prado Plus is the perfect choice for couples.

A TV In The Bed? Why Not!

Over the last 18 months, you may have spent an increased amount of time watching TV from your bed. So have you considered swapping out your current bed for one with a TV built-in?

What Is A TV Bed?

A TV bed is one of the more modern styles of bed on the market. Designed like a sleigh bed, the TV mechanism is then built into the footboard of the bed. The TV mechanism will be movable via remote control and will be able to withstand a number of TVs providing they meet the specifications of the frame.


The collection of TV beds that we offer here at UK Bed Store do not include the TV. We have chosen to offer beds without the TV as this means that you can opt to use your existing bedroom TV (without the expense of paying for a new TV and providing it fits), it also means that you can upgrade to the latest smart TV as and when you like without having to change your bed too. We appreciate that technology changes far more often than you change your bed, and do not want you to feel like you have to keep your current TV.
When it comes to selecting a TV to fit into your bed, you will need to consult the specification of that specific frame as they can vary slightly between different brands and bed sizes.


An increasing interior design trend is minimalism. From fewer ornaments on display, to fewer pieces of furniture in the room and even completely clear surfaces. A great way to continue this into your bedroom, but still have the option for a TV is to invest in a TV bed. This means that you can remove the TV from the wall or unit and have it safely tucked away in the footer of your bed until you want to use it. These beds also come with ample space to have your entertainment system tucked away underneath, meaning there is no need for unsightly wires to be on show.


A number of the TV beds that we have to offer are also ottoman beds, like the stunning Kaydian Barnard range. Along with saving space where you would usually keep your TV, you can also save storage space around your room by simply lifting your mattress (which is on an easy move base) and revealing ample storage space, great for bedding, clothes, kids toys and even hiding those Christmas and birthday presents!

King Size vs Double Bed Frames: Which Do We Need?

When purchasing a new bed for you and your partner, it’s often difficult to decide on a size. According to Which?, Double beds are the second most popular mattress size in the UK. Double bed frames tend to be a perfect fit for most couples and would certainly be more than ample for someone sleeping on their own. However, we can probably all admit to being tempted by the thought of a King Size bed.

In order to decide between the two, we’ve put together a guide of what to consider. Hopefully, it will help make your choice a little easier.

How Much Space Do You Have?

The first consideration to make is to see what your room can actually house. If the room simply isn’t big enough for a King Size bed, then your options are limited to a double bed frame. Double bed frames are traditionally 4’ 6” x 6’3” whereas King Size bed frames are traditionally 5’ x 6’6”.

It’s important to put the tape measure to work and assess what’s possible before even considering the other factors.

Is a Double Bed Frame Tall Enough?

Once you’ve considered the size of the room, it’s time to assess the size of you and your partner.If you often find yourselves with your feet hanging over the edge of the bed, you’ll probably be keen to scale up.

Thanks to King Size models traditionally boasting an extra three inches in height over the double bed frames, they allow those up to 6’6” to fully stretch out. However, we’ll next be considering how the way you sleep can affect your decision. For example, if you find that you often curl up to sleep anyway, that extra height might not seem worth the money.

How Do You Sleep?

One of the most important factors that people don’t often consider until it’s too late is how you sleep. Double beds are designed to fit two people, but don’t offer a great deal of wiggle room. Therefore, if one of you or your partner is a restless sleeper, a double bed frame may not provide ample space.

Getting this wrong could see you both knocking into each other and disturbing a good night’s sleep. Comfort is key and so if you find yourself tossing and turning, we recommend going King Size.

How Much Would You Like to Spend?

Our final consideration is to consider the cost. Naturally, whether you’re purchasing a metal or wooden bed frame, the larger the size, the bigger the cost. This is simply because of the extra materials required in the manufacturing process. You should set out a budget based on the prices that you’ve seen. That way, it will help you to filter results on our online shop.

Here at UK Bed Store, we’re focused on delivering the best products at the lowest prices to our customers. That’s why we’ve introduced a Price Promise Guarantee.
