What is a continental drawer?
If your bed area is hemmed in by bedside cabinets or fitted furniture, call upon continental drawers to extend your floor space. A conti drawer is essentially a mini drawer.
Providing an alternative to 2-drawer divan beds which doesn’t sacrifice any underbed storage, 4 drawer divans with continental drawers can be applied to narrower areas where there isn’t the capacity to open a full-size drawer.
Why are continental divans known as 2+2 drawer beds?
A four drawer divan is a classic way to maximise storage space in the bedroom. Some rooms don’t have the capabilities of handling a luxury divan bed base with full-length drawers. That’s where continental 2+2 drawered divans come into play.
Comprising of two small and two large drawers, 2+2 divan beds are given their name due to the uniqueness of adding 2 mini storage drawers to a divan bed base with 4 drawers.
What is the difference between continental divan beds and ottomans?
Divan beds and ottomans tick all the boxes when it comes to maximising floor space, offering a stylish finishing touch to your bedroom while managing clutter. A divan bed with 2+2 drawers operates similarly to the more common divan bed types, featuring drawers and mini drawers which open out as a storage solution.
Both ottomans and continental divans are storage beds. The key difference lies in the type of storage they offer. Lift up ottoman bed frames are powered by pistons or gas struts with a lift and close mechanism which raises the base overhead.
Featuring a large underbed storage area, ottoman bases use the entirety of the bed as a storage space as opposed to holding drawers beneath the surface. Divan beds with conti drawers are equally practical, featuring a 4-drawer divan design which provides great depth of storage.
A divan continental bed base is better for separating items into compartments, whereas an ottoman divan bed holds them all together.
