Many of us imagine a divan base as a rock hard slab to lay a mattress on. But over time, the design of the divan base has evolved. With a few options to choose from, it's important to consider which is right for you. But what types of divan bases are available? And what's the difference between them?
Firm Edge Divan Base
The most popular and affordable sprung divan base is the firm edge. It's comprised of springs which offer extra support for the mattress. With a wooden frame around the spring unit. The added wooden frame lowers the spring count which in turn, lowers the price. Having a wooden frame around the springs also prevents the feeling of 'roll off' when nearing the edge of the bed. Offering extra support around the perimeters. Sprung divan bases are a great choice for those that prefer a softer sleeping surface.
Sprung Edge Divan Base
With a similar design to the firm edge, the key difference between the two is the wooden frame. A sprung edge divan base is made up of springs edge to edge. The high spring count puts this base into a more luxury category of divan bases and comes with a higher price tag. Although it may be more expensive, the extra spring support can reduce wear and tear of your mattress. Which in the long run, will save you money. Both are great options depending on your budget.
Platform Top Divan Base
Platform top divan bases are ideal for those that prefer a firmer sleeping surface. They're also a great option if you want to make your current mattress feel firmer. The key difference between a sprung divan base and a platform top is the top layer of the base. In a platform top base, the top layer is made up of solid wood. Platform top bases are the most affordable divan base and in many cases, the most popular.
