Why choose a Divan bed base?
There are two types of divan bed base – those without storage and those that have drawers or ottoman storage space. A solid divan base gives you extra sleeping comfort as many of them have sprung bases. This can increase the comfort levels and even prolong the lifespan of your mattress. However, most people choose a divan bed space because of the extra storage that it provides. This is especially useful in a smaller bedroom where there may not be room for extra wardrobes or chests of drawers.
With divan storage bases you can keep seasonal clothes and additional bed linen and blankets stored away. For a children’s room, a divan single bed gives you plenty of space to store toys and clothes, keeping the room free of clutter. Divan bed bases can be easily assembled in the room, making them more maneuverable than a solid base. Because they’re a box construction they’re lighter too. Remember that when you’re choosing a divan bed base to ensure there is enough room around the sides for easy access to the drawers.

Divan storage beds are narrower than typical bed frames but require extra consideration due to their drawers. Ensure that you account for the extra space taken by an opening divan drawer.
What is the difference between a bed frame and a divan base?
A divan base looks like a fabric or faced box and contains built-in storage such as ottoman storage or drawers. They also often come with castors so that they can be easily moved around. With firm tops, they’re suitable for almost any type of mattress, including zip-and-link options. They’re affordable and are excellent in any situation including spare rooms, thanks to that useful extra storage space.
A bed frame is literally what it says – a frame for your mattress. They’re available in a wide range of materials and sizes, from classic metal and wood to leather-covered or brightly coloured options. Bed frames come in ‘kit’ form and are put together in the bedroom. The big difference between the two is that a bed frame does not have built-in storage options such as an ottoman divan bed with storage or divan drawers. While you can store items underneath a bed frame, you won’t be able to protect them from the dust that tends to accumulate underneath the average bed!
