Trying to decide what bed frame is best for your needs? Today we explain what is a divan bed, who it is best for and what benefits it has. Divan beds can be a fantastic option for those that are space conscious. If you prefer a minimalistic look then divan beds are a great way to conceal storage and provide extra space throughout the room. This style of frame is great value for money and has remained the most popular style of bed throughout the years.

What is a divan bed made of?

Divan beds are comprised of two or three parts. Generally, there is a solid wood and fabric base designed to the exact size specifications of the mattress. Then, of course, is the mattress which slots perfectly and securely on top of the base. Unlike most bed frames, divan beds come with optional headboards. So if you prefer a more streamlined look, you can opt for a divan bed without a headboard. Otherwise, the headboard easily attaches to the bed base making it compact and easy to transport.

Are divan beds available with storage?

Storage is optional, ranging from two drawers to four drawers depending on your needs. You can also opt for ottoman storage which is completely concealed. Making it the perfect option for minimalists that require extra storage space. The drawers in a divan bed are located in the base whereas the storage in an ottoman bed is located under the mattress. Accessed by using a hydraulic gas lift to easily lift the mattress.

Are divan beds good for small rooms?

Out of all the bed frame options, divan beds take up the least space. This is because they are only as large as the mattress you choose, eliminating extra space taken up by a standard bed frame. A divan bed with storage is also providing extra storage options. The streamlined design makes them the perfect option for small rooms, maximising space that would otherwise be wasted.

Are divan beds easy to assemble?

Divan beds are the simplest frame to put together, with only three simple assembly steps. Making them ideal for those that aren't handy in the DIY department. Your divan bed base will arrive in two pieces (one piece if you choose a single bed). You will also receive the legs for the base and a headboard if you have chosen one. 
  • First, turn the base upside down and attach the divan legs.
  • Turn the separate pieces over and attach them using the easy click and lock system.
  • Lastly, attach the optional headboard to the pre-drilled sockets.

Are divan beds affordable?
