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.

Choose your Base…

Choosing the right size bed will depend on the available space you have in your bedroom. Carefully measure the space before choosing any bed and remember you need space to get out of bed and walk around the bed. Take into account any other furniture you wish to have in the room such as bedside cabinets, drawers or wardrobes etc. There is no point in choosing a king sized bed then discovering you can no longer open or close your bedroom door!

Choose your Mattress

Choosing the right mattress is crucial to ensure you get a long-lasting bed that gives you a comfortable night’s sleep while  supporting your body. Contrary to popular opinion, a mattress doesn’t have to be firm to be good for you. As long as it has a good supporting structure, the amount of padding on top is down to personal preference. We have a wide range to choose from to suit all preferences and budgets from budget mattresses, ideal for a spare room bed through to luxury products.

Choose your Headboard

There are a stylish metal headboards to choose from, which can be a traditional Victorian look or a contemporary sleek modern look. Wooden headboards in a variety of finishes and wood types add a touch of class to any room. If comfort is your main thing, go for a luxury padded headboard in a wide range of colours and fabrics.
