What is a Divan bed? Everything you need to know
When it comes to choosing the right bed and mattress, there will be a number of things you’ll need to consider.
You’ll want something that caters to your sleeping position and any back problems you may have, as well as one that works with the available space in your bedroom and fits in with your interior design style. A divan bed could be your ideal choice.
So, what is a divan bed?
Divan beds – the basics
In basic terms, a divan bed is made up of a specially-designed base and matching mattress.
The base is created from a wooden frame that’s surrounded by fabric, with the base often having drawers for storage. At Bensons for Beds, you’ll find that all of our divan beds are fitted with integrated drawers.
You’ll also find that most divan beds are on wheels, making them easy to move around your room. They are also relatively straightforward to put together.
What mattresses are available with a divan bed?
One key thing to note about divan beds, is that you have a variety of mattress options to help you find one that suits your sleeping style and requirements.
For example, you can opt for a divan bed with the following:
- An iGel mattress – this will ensure your temperature is regulated and will mould to your body shape
- A memory foam mattress – this will provide you with the right level of support
- An orthopaedic mattress – this will be the perfect choice if you’re after some added relief for your back
You can even opt for one with a mattress from our Bespoke Collection for ultimate comfort.
Will a divan bed help me save space?
A divan bed is a great option if you’re looking to save a little space in your bedroom. The extra storage underneath – whether from integrated drawers or with an ottoman base option – is a fantastic space saver to store your clothes, shoes and other essential items.
The actual bed will also take up less space than a separate bed frame with the same size mattress. This is because the bed sits on top of the base as opposed to inside a frame – these few inches can make a big difference in a smaller room.
Is a divan bed a more cost-effective choice?
Often a divan bed is a very cost-effective option. This is due to the fact that the mattress is integrated into the bed and you won’t be required to purchase both the mattress and the seperate bed frame.
Can I choose a specific colour for my divan bed?
At Bensons for Beds, all of our divan beds are available in a number of different colours. When opting for the right colour for your bedroom, it’s important to choose a bed in a neutral tone. This gives you the opportunity to use it as your centre piece and style your room around it. By keeping the bed neutral you can opt for florals in your soft furnishings, bright colours on your walls, or simple and classically understated décor.
When it comes to finding your perfect sleeping partner, a divan bed is definitely an option worth considering.
