Archers Sleepcentre: UK's Leading Divan Bed Specialist

A divan is quite simply a mattress resting on a covered box. This type of bed originated from the Ottoman Empire back in the 18th century and divans have now become a standard piece of bedroom furniture in the UK.
Some divan beds come with springs in the divan base (we call them sprung bases). These springs act as shock absorbers and can increase the life of a divan mattress by up to a third.
Platform top divan beds offer the most cost effective storage. Most of our divan beds come with a choice of storage options from 2 drawers, 4 drawers, 2+2 continental drawers and ottoman bases for maximum storage space.
The best selling divan beds in the UK are made by Sealy and Silentnight and we are pleased to be a UK premier stockist for both these bed companies. As a premier stockist we have the best prices and best delivery times for their products.
Sealy and Silentnight guarantees and warranties are amongst the best in the industry. Their beds are of the highest quality but if there is a defect you can be assured that your problem will be dealt with quickly and effectively.
If you choose to sleep in a divan bed, you can literally rest easy in the knowledge that you are on an article of furniture that has stood the test of time for both comfort and style.
Originally, divans were Middle Eastern couches without arms or backs, meant to be placed up against walls, and were especially popular during the times of the Ottoman Empire.
Here and now, they are beds with thick bases under the mattress, but the sleepers' requirements have changed little.
According to the Sleep Research Centre, studies over the last 40 years has shown we need about 7¼ hours of sleep a night on average, the same as a hundred years ago, when the Ottoman Empire still existed.
Nowadays, Archers can offer divans for any room size, with beds ranging from single to super king size divans.
Single bed divans
One advantage of divan beds is the incorporation of storage drawers. Manufacturers often make use of the deep divan bases to include up to 4 drawers.
Even single bed divans have enough space beneath the mattress to place up to 2 drawers.
They often come with headboards or can be fitted with them - so even if your bed is not up against the wall, you do not need to worry about losing a pillow!
Divan bed mattresses tend to be thick, which makes them comfortable and supportive. Many mattresses for divan beds are firm or very firm and you may even find a no-turn product, eliminating the need to flip it.
People who sleep with a partner and need double bed divans may worry that if one of them wants firm support, the other will have to be stuck with a hard mattress, but this is not the case.
The Sleep Council notes that beds need to be supportive of the spine for people who suffer aches and pains, but a softer bed can still meet this requirement. You can get support without having to sleep on a hard mattress, so there should be something that both sleepers will find comfortable.
King size bed divans
Considering that smaller divans looks luxurious, the king size bed divans seem positively majestic.
Some of them come with storage drawers and if you were to opt for a damask cover on a deep mattress, you could certainly feel that you are sleeping like royalty.
If your king size bed divan does not come with a headboard, consider adding one, as it will prove the perfect finish to a stately-sized piece.
Super king size bed divans
For yet another step up the opulence stakes, there are super king size bed divans. They are available with open coil, pocket sprung and memory foam options, again featuring storage drawers in their spacious bases.
You can be sure of plenty of support as you stretch out, since many such products are firm or ultra-firm. The bases and headboards come in a range of colours and styles to suit your taste.
Many people do not sleep well enough these days. The Sleep Council also notes that insomnia is one of the biggest health problems of the 21st century.
But with Archers taking divan beds into the modern day, you can be sure of a comfortable night's sleep. So take advantage of our divan MegaSale and Order yours Today.
