What is a Divan Bed? Everything You Need to Know | Sleep Hub

When it comes to choosing the right bed and mattress, there are tonnes of things that you’ll need to consider. Finding the perfect mattress can be difficult, you’ll have to find something that not only suits your sleeping position but also supports any back problems you may have. It’s not only the type of mattress that you need to consider, you’ll also need to choose the perfect bed frame. When your choosing your bed you’ll want to find something that compliments your décor – are you looking to make a statement or keep your space feeling minimal? Not only that, but you’ll need to consider the amount of space you have in your bedroom. If adding a larger bed to your bedroom will sacrifice your storage space, a divan bed could well be your ideal choice. Here at Bensons for Beds we’ll teach you everything you need to know about divan beds.

So, what is a divan bed?

In basic terms, a divan bed is made up of a specially designed base and a matching mattress. The base is created with a  wooden frame so that it is durable and long lasting, the base is then surrounded by  fabric to give it a clean finish. Divan beds often have drawers for underbed storage – making them a great choice for bedrooms that are limited on storage space. At Bensons, you’ll find that all of our divan beds come with the choice of integrated drawers.

You’ll also find that most divan beds are on wheels. This makes them a popular choice as they are incredibly easy to move around. Although these wheels can be fixed in place, they’re also handy to move your bed for cleaning as well as rearranging your space. Not only that, but divan beds are relatively straightforward to put together. Compared to other beds which require a lot of setting up, divan beds can simply be clipped together and put in place.

If you’re wondering, what size is a divan bed? Well, divan beds come in a variety of different sizes. Choosing a divan option doesn’t mean you’re limited on choice. Whether you’re on the hunt for a  single bed to complete a guest bedroom or you’re thinking of a super king bed to make a statement in your master suite – our divan beds come in a range of sizes to compliment your available space.

Will a divan bed help me save space?

Of course! It’s a no brainer that a divan bed is a great option if you’re looking to save 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.

What is a divan bed set?

To put it simply, a divan bed set is a complete bed which is ready to go. You’ll get a divan base and a mattress, together the two will create the luxury sleep experience. One key thing to note about divan beds is that you have a variety of mattress options available. This means that you can find a mattress that suits your sleeping style and requirements. For example, you can opt for a divan bed with the following:

An iGel mattress – this type of mattress will ensure that your temperature is regulated throughout the night, allowing you to sleep soundly. Plus, an iGel mattress will also mould to your body shape and provide support where you need it most.

memory foam mattress – memory foam mattresses are incredibly popular. Memory foam gives a feel of sinking into the mattress, which is great after a long day. Memory foam provides your body with the right level of support.

An orthopaedic mattress – this type of mattress is the perfect choice for someone who suffers with regular back pain. Specifically designed to provide extra support and added relief for your back.

No matter the comfort rating you require, whether you’re looking for something soft or a mattress with a firmer feel – our selection of divan bed sets has something to suit everyone.
