A divan bed consists of two parts: a divan base and a matching mattress.
The divan base, the component that differentiates a divan bed from the older traditional style bed, consists of a strong wooden frame structure covered in fabric. The vast majority of divan bases are mounted on castor wheels and often include storage in the form of drawers.
Why you should choose a divan bed
It can be very difficult to decide what type of bed to go for. Do you go for a divan bed? Do you go for a bed frame? Or that really pretty sleigh bed you seen on that Instagram influencer’s page?
Below we have compiled some of the reasons why we believe you should choose a divan bed:
Support: Solid Platform Top
Divan beds have a hard platform top and are made from a solid timber frame, you can be assured of a very firm and supportive surface for any mattress you choose to pair with it.
A Bed with Storage
Lets be honest, there is no such thing as having too much storage space. Fortunately, with most divan bases, you are able to add storage! (some people even refer to them as storage beds)
With DFI divans you can up to 4 drawers depending on the bed size. This is perfect for customers who don’t have a lot of space in their rooms meaning even the smallest of bedrooms can benefit from the extra storage space and less clutter. So all those extra shoes or even the extra bed sheets have a new home, safely stored away in the drawers under the bed!
Easy to move
Divans are very easy to move because they are much lighter than traditional bases. They are easy to get into your home and up stairs regardless of how tight the space is. DFI divan bases come in two sections in every size except single so you will have no trouble getting even a Super King divan bed into your home and bedroom.
There is nothing worse than being excited about a new piece of furniture and it come in about 50 different pieces and needs multiple tools to assemble! Fortunately this is not the case with a divan bed. It is as easy as clipping the two divan bases together and placing the mattress on top. No tools required and takes just a few minutes. You will have your bed made up in no time, snuggled up with a glass of wine and the telly on!
One of the many benefits of a divan bed is the headboard. It is very easy to attach and detach the headboard to a divan base, which is ideal if you are an ever-changing decorator like myself! It gives you the option to change headboards easily meaning you aren’t stuck with the same headboard. When updating your bedroom décor you can simply buy a new headboard that fits in with the new style or colour theme.
