What is a Divan Bed?

14th October 2021

Divan beds are basically storage beds. They are also called upholstered beds or beds with drawers because they have a number of drawers that can be used for storing clothes and other linen within the bed frame itself. The divan part is usually made from cotton, but there are many types available to suit different preferences.

How Does a Divan Bed Work?

A divan bed usually consists of a mattress and a base. The frame will be made from wood, metal or any other material that you prefer. Most people choose to have an upholstered style with padding between the wooden struts for added comfort.

The base is measured to the same size as the mattress, so that it fits perfectly. It is then filled with a combination of materials, usually cotton or foam. The divan bed will have slats on the base to provide ventilation for your mattress and this allows airflow underneath the mattress itself, which helps keep dust mites away too.

The Advantages of Having a Divan Bed

The main advantages of having a divan bed are that the base is fixed and therefore does not move. The whole of the mattress will be supported by it, which means there’s no roll together as you move around at night; this makes for comfortable sleeping conditions and also helps to prevent back pain too.

In addition to the sleep quality, the style of a divan bed is compact and a divan bed is also a good choice for small rooms. The look of the base can be changed so it’s easy to match your room décor, and you have the option to purchase storage drawers with some models too – these are ideal if you want extra space where you can store sheets or clothes out of sight.

Types of Divans and Some Popular Brands

There are many types of divan beds on the market today such as sprung top divans, firm top divans and all come in a range of sizes, from single to super king. The size you need will depend on the size of your room and how much storage space you require, but a double is usually ideal for most bedrooms. If you’re looking for a divan bed that offers plenty of support then try one with springs or memory foam mattress padding – this makes them very comfortable too.

You can find divan beds from industry leading brands including Dreams, Bensons for Beds, and of course, Arc Appliances.
