    Understanding Divan Beds

    So, what exactly is a divan bed? A divan bed base is constructed with a sturdy wooden frame, then typically upholstered in a fabric such as velvet or linen. Assembling is a breeze – the two sections of the divan frame are joined together, with your mattress then positioned directly on top of the divan bed base. We also provide divan bed bases with storage options, including divan beds with drawers and ottoman styles. These beds utilise the interior space to provide plenty of room for storage, maximising your space. Whether you opt for a divan bed with drawers featuring a large pull-out drawer underneath or an ottoman style divan bed that lifts up to reveal storage space, you can be sure that our divans are modern beds that will enhance any bedroom décor!

    The Distinction: Divan Beds vs. Ottoman Beds

     Traditionally, ottoman beds lift to offer storage underneath the mattress, while a divan bed has drawers that pull out from underneath. This means an ottoman often provides extra space, as you can use the entire bed base for storage. However, a divan bed with storage drawers doesn't need to be lifted for access, making them a more convenient option for many.

    At British Bed Store, many of our divan bed bases offer customisable storage options. You can choose a plain base, a base with drawers, or an ottoman style. It all boils down to your personal preferences.

    Divan Bases: Available without Mattresses?

    While the divan bases sold here at British Bed Store come without a mattress as standard, we offer the option for you to choose a mattress to go with your new divan bed. We have a wide range of mattresses in various sizes and types to provide you with a comfortable sleep every night on your new divan bed!

    Is a Divan Bed a Smart Investment?

     Divan beds are increasingly becoming a go-to solution for many due to their unique combination of comfort, elegance, and functionality. But is it a smart investment? The simple answer is yes. Firstly, divan beds are generally long-lasting due to their sturdy construction. Secondly, their integrated storage facilities make them a boon in smaller rooms or areas where additional storage space is beneficial. Lastly, their aesthetic versatility means they can blend seamlessly into any bedroom décor.

    Why is a Divan Bed Ideal for a Guest Room?

    A divan bed is an excellent choice for a guest room for several reasons. They offer unrivalled comfort, ensuring that your guests will have a good night's sleep. The built-in storage is also very handy in a guest room, offering a place to store additional bedding, pillows, or guest's belongings without taking up additional space. Moreover, they add an element of sophistication to any room, helping to create a welcoming environment for your guests.

    Can a Divan Bed be Customised?

    Indeed, at the British Bed Store, we offer an extensive degree of customisation to ensure your divan bed not only suits your needs but also enhances your bedroom aesthetics. You can tailor your divan bed in multiple ways: choose your preferred size and type of mattress, and select a headboard style and colour that echoes your personal taste. Beyond that, our divan beds come with a rich variety of upholstery options - Plush Velvet, Soft Velvet, Naples and Linen, each available in an array of colours. Furthermore, you have the choice to opt for cloth buttons or add a sparkle of glamour with diamantes. Craft your ideal divan bed with us, designed exclusively for you!

    Storage Capacity of a Divan Bed

     The drawers in our divan beds with storage measure 53cm in depth and 22cm in height, with the width varying depending on your choice of drawers. When choosing your divan base, you can select up to four drawers or simply opt for an end drawer situated at the foot of the bed.

    The Versatility of Divan Beds: With or Without a Headboard

     Yes, all our divans can be customised with your preferred headboard. When choosing a divan bed with a headboard, you can select from many styles and colour variations! If you prefer to save on space or don't require a headboard, you can opt not to have one.

    Cleaning Divan Beds

    Maintaining the cleanliness and freshness of your divan bed is crucial for its longevity and your health. Start by regularly vacuuming the fabric cover to prevent dust accumulation. If any spills occur, promptly treat them with a suitable fabric cleaner or mild soap, following the manufacturer's instructions. In cases of deep or stubborn stains, it might be necessary to hire a professional upholstery cleaning service.

    Changing the Upholstery on Divan Beds

    The ability to change the upholstery on your divan bed depends on its design. Some divan bed bases feature removable and replaceable covers, offering the flexibility to switch the aesthetic as per your preferences. However, this is not a standard feature for all divan beds. To ensure that you have this option, it's advised to check with the retailer or the manufacturer before making a purchase.

    Choosing a Mattress for Divan Beds

    The type of mattress you choose for your divan bed is a matter of personal preference. Divan beds do not require a specific kind of mattress, which means you're free to select a mattress based on your preferred firmness level, material, and size that matches the divan base. The mattress's comfort and support should align with your sleeping habits and physical needs to ensure restful sleep.

    Adding a Headboard to Divan Beds

    While headboards are not a necessity for divan beds, they can certainly enhance the overall aesthetics and comfort of your bed setup. Divan beds and headboards are typically sold separately, allowing you the flexibility to choose a headboard that complements your interior décor and personal style. From plush upholstered designs to sleek wooden options, the choices are abundant.

    Lifespan of Divan Beds

    The lifespan of a divan bed is determined by the quality of its construction and the care it receives over time. High-quality divan beds, when well maintained, can easily serve you for 7 to 10 years, and possibly longer. Regular cleaning, rotating the mattress, and avoiding excessive weight can contribute to extending your divan bed's life.

    Recycling Divan Beds

    Most components of a divan bed, such as the wooden frame, metal springs, and certain upholstery types, are recyclable. This feature aligns with the modern-day emphasis on environmental sustainability. It's always a good idea to consult with your local waste disposal service or council to understand the options for responsibly disposing of or recycling your old divan bed.

    Assembling Divan Beds

    Divan beds are generally designed for easy assembly, with most models arriving in two halves that simply need to be connected. However, the ease of assembly can vary depending on the specific model. At British Bed Store, we offer assembly services along with 2-man delivery.

    Using Divan Beds without a Mattress

    While a divan bed technically can be used without a mattress, it is not recommended. Without a mattress, a divan bed would not provide the necessary comfort and support required for a restful sleep. Using a divan bed without a mattress can also potentially damage the bed base. It is always recommended to pair your divan bed with a suitable mattress for optimum comfort and durability.
