What is a Divan Bed?
Put simply, a divan is a base that generally does not have a headboard or foot board.It is constructed using a wooden frame and covered in a strong fabric. This base has castors under it to make manoeuvring easy. You can choose your mattress option and if required, a headboard.
There are two types of divan base available, firstly pocket sprung divans have springs in the base, offering a softer top and extra comfort. Secondly, there are platform top divans which have a hard top and will give a firmer feel, although the overall firmness of the bed will depend on the mattress you choose. Platform top dovans are generally a cheaper option that a pocket sprung version.
One of the advantages of choosing a divan bed is the wide variety of sizes to choose from starting from a single at 3″ going all the way upto a superking at 6″ wide.
