The Benefits Of Divan Beds

Our Luxury Range Of Divan Beds Are Designed For Comfort, Style & Convenience

If you are looking for a bed that is both comfortable and functional, a divan bed, consisting of a divan base and a mattress, could be the perfect option for you.

Whether you are using it every day or are contemplating the centrepiece of your newly-decorated guest room, there are plenty of benefits that make it a great investment, especially when it comes to support and durability, with the option for built-in storage.

Buying A Divan Bed With Storage

Storage beds are a versatile space-saving solution.

Divan beds especially, are available in a variety of sizes ranging from single to double, king, super king, and emperor.

They typically consist of an upholstered divan base paired with a mattress and are available as deep divan bases with or without storage, or shallow divan bases on legs.

Important Factors feature


One of the unique features of a divan bed is the built-in storage options available.

This could include:

Bed With Drawers

Divan beds often come with built-in drawers that are ideal for storing bedding, clothes or other items, helping to save space in a smaller room.

Ottoman-Style Lifting Mechanism

Ottoman-style lifting mechanisms are designed to allow you to lift the entire mattress and base to reveal a large storage space underneath. This is the perfect option for those wanting to maximise their storage space.

Hideaway Storage

Featuring a sturdy platform top for your mattress, hideaway storage stretches the entire length and width of the divan bed base.

The storage area is elegantly concealed behind a beautifully upholstered valance that completely covers the full height of the base, ensuring the stored items are kept out of sight.

Why Have A Divan Base Instead Of A Traditional Bed Frame?

There are many advantages to having a divan bed base instead of a traditional bed frame.

A sprung divan bed base delivers superior comfort and support, working with the mattress to provide an exceptional night’s sleep.

Other bed frames may use a slatted base, which provides a firm foundation but solely relies on the mattress.

Our divan beds come with varying types of built-in storage to help keep your room organised and clutter-free.

Traditionally, a divan bed frame is designed to provide a sturdy and supportive foundation for the mattress.

By distributing the weight of the sleeper more evenly, it can reduce pressure points and provide a more comfortable sleeping experience.

You can enjoy superior mattress support with each spring responding independently to help contribute to a better night’s sleep.

Divan beds are built to be more durable than traditional bed frames and are typically made with high-quality materials designed to withstand daily wear and tear.

What also makes divan beds an excellent choice, is that they are easy to move and their height can be adjusted using castors, legs, or guides or by opting for a deep, low or shallow divan base.

What Headboards Suit A Divan Base?

We have plenty of options to choose from when it comes to selecting a headboard for your divan bed base.


Upholstered Headboards

All our upholstered headboards are beautifully hand-crafted in Britain and are available to order in a wide selection of standard and premium fabrics including cotton, velvet, linen, and leather, adding the perfect finishing touch to your home decor.

Shallow Headboards

Our shallow headboards are designed to be paired with a shallow divan base on legs. 

They are the ideal choice for those who prefer something sleek and minimalist, creating a seamless bedstead look with the benefit of comfort when opting for a sprung divan base.

They come in a variety of neutral tones with a characteristically-slim profile that doesn’t take up too much space.

Strutted Headboards

A strutted headboard is an upholstered design panel positioned above the mattress that is attached to the bed using wooden struts.

This makes it a great choice for tight or awkward spaces, as well as for those looking for a budget-friendly alternative.

Full-Length Headboards

We offer a deluxe range of full-length headboards, including options for both floor-standing and divan bed base-level installation.
