What is a Divan Base?

Although the main purpose of a divan bed base is to provide a platform for your mattress, it’s also a stylish and practical piece of bedroom furniture.

Traditionally, divan bases had the same fabric as the mattress, but as fashions changed, manufacturers now offer a wide selection of fabrics and colours.

Divan bases have a firm top that provides a solid platform for your mattress, but should you prefer a softer feel, a sprung base would be the best option.

Spring bases are more expensive and luxurious than platform bases because of the additional materials and craftsmanship required for manufacturing.

Benefits of a divan base?

Space saving design – Divan bases are an ideal option for bedrooms with limited space as they don’t take up as much floor space as bed frames require.

Easy assembly Single divans will arrive as one unit, with larger sizes in two parts with linking bars and only require the castors/glides and headboard bolts to be fitted.

Easy to manoeuvre – Divans are lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, especially if they are on castors, allowing easy access to any dust’s that harbouring below.

Storage options – There’s a selection of storage option available to suit a variety of bedroom settings, with ottoman divans providing the maximum storage space.

Matching headboards – To add the finishing touch to your divan, you have the option to add one of the strutted or floor standing headboards in a matching fabric.

Benefits of an ottoman divan base?

Just like a standard divan base, ottoman bases do not take up as much floor space as a bed frame, but they do offer the maximum storage a divan base can offer.

Depending on your bedroom layout or storage needs, there’s a selection of ottomans available from half front opening, full side opening and full front opening.

There’s also the option of an electrically operated ottoman divan base that can be raised or lowered easily using the buttons located at the side of the base.
