Divan beds are made up of a mattress and a specially-designed base. Divans are one of the most popular products with our customers, offering a complete bed package that looks great and provides fantastic storage space.
There are many benefits to consider when choosing a divan bed:
A Great Storage Solution
Our large selection of divan mattresses and beds offer the ultimate in storage – with many of our divan bases you can choose to add two or four drawers, depending on your storage needs.
In addition, since divan bases are the same dimensions as the mattress (bed frames are usually bigger than mattresses), a divan further maximises the space available in your room.
Customised to Your Needs
You can further customise your divan to your own requirements by selecting the colour of the base (depending on the product), and adding an optional matching headboard.
Our divans are available in a range of mattress types, sizes and firmness ratings. In fact, if you see a mattress you like, the manufacturer will usually have the divan package for that mattress!
Many of our divans also come with a Free Two Man Delivery Upgrade (worth £19.99). Please check the individual product page for further details.
Divan bases are often easier to assemble than bedframes, since divans usually have split bases to simply adjoin together.
In addition, since divan bases are usually lighter than many standard bed frames, and often have castors (wheels), this means that they can be easier to manoeuvre around your bedroom.
Base Working Together with the Mattress
Divan bases work in conjunction with your mattress, offering high levels of comfort and support. For this reason, it is recommended that the mattress and the base of the divan are purchased together.
In fact, putting a new mattress on an old divan base may affect the useful life of your new mattress, reducing the levels of comfort and support that you might expect. Your mattress warranty may even become invalidated if it is used on top of an old base.
