What Is A Divan Bed?

Divan base

We all know the benefits of a good quality bed so let’s not waste time going through them again. But trust us when we say that an equally impressive divan base really completes your bedroom aesthetic and can totally change how your mattress feels.

So, what exactly is a divan bed?

We won’t try to glamorise it, a divan base is essentially wood surrounded by fabric. If you add an accompanying mattress, you’ve got yourself a standard divan bed. Unlike some other setups, a divan mattress sits perfectly on top, giving a nice, neat look. If you’ve already found your perfect mattress, don’t stress, you can always purchase a divan base on its own. What’s more is that all our Slumberland divan beds come with and without the option to add a headboard, so you can afford to be a little picky.

I’m no DIY superstar. How easy is assembly?

With only two parts (the base and the mattress) divan beds are the easiest to assemble. Simply add the two parts together and attach the headboard, if that’s your thing.

I like to be unique. Can I mix things up?

Divan bases usually have a mattress buddy with whom they share dimensions, but that doesn’t mean you can’t mix it up and customise your setup. All our divan bases come with a decent range of mattress options.

Any other bonuses?

The coolest thing about our divan bases is that many of them offer storage, so you can stop stashing your mess in the wardrobe and start hiding it under the bed – your guests will never guess. Our divan bases come with 4 storage options:

  • Ottoman – storage that stretches from the head of the bed right down to the foot
  • 2 large drawers – these are positioned at the foot of the bed
  • 2 small and 2 large drawers – as above, but with 2 smaller drawers at the head
  • 4 large drawers – as above, but all 4 drawers are large, perfect for extra stashing space

But is a divan bed really for me?

You really can’t go wrong with a divan bed. Not only are they incredibly cost effective (two for the price of one, anyone?) but they’re so lightweight and easy to move that you can take them with you wherever you go in life – new house with a spare room, house renovations, you name it.

What’s more, the firm base of a divan bed will keep your mattress in good nick, absorbing shock and supporting you throughout the night.
