Why choose a headboard for a divan bed?

Divan beds are traditionally bought when space in a bedroom is at a premium. With plenty of storage underneath, they offer a smart and efficient way to keep on top of your storage without taking up any extra space with cupboards, chests, or wardrobes. While most divan beds are sold without headboards, they do come with predrilled hollows, making a divan headboard simple to install. 

What are the benefits of a divan headboard?

  • If you’re a night-time reader, a divan headboard offers better back support than propping yourself up against the wall.

  • Your hair produces oils that if you repeatedly lean against a specific spot on the wall, can leave stains in your paintwork. A divan headboard is easy to clean!

  • Bedroom walls can get cold, particularly during the winter. A divan headboard helps to keep your head cosy and cut down on those draughts.

  • Divan headboards help to keep your pillows in place, so you can achieve the perfect posture for a good night’s sleep.

  • Choose your own style. We offer an extensive range of divan headboards, allowing you to choose the colour and materials that suit your room and your taste.

What is the best headboard to buy for a divan?

From faux leather or crushed velvet, to a super king-size divan bed option, you’ll find the best headboard for divan beds in our extensive range. Our cheap headboards come in an array of sizes, colours and designs.

Kids' headboards can be difficult to find. With our small single divan beds, the smallest divan storage beds can receive the same luxurious treatment as their larger counterparts.

The versatility of a divan makes it the perfect storage solution for all rooms in the home, and our size range reflects this. Everything from double divans to extravagant super king-size headboards are catered for, in signature styles which underline the ambience of your bedroom. With curved & velvet designs and more available, the right divan headboard for you can be found right here. 

Do all headboards fit divan beds?

Typically, headboards come in three fixing types – standard panelled, floor-standing, and wall-mounted. Fitting a headboard to a divan bed depends on the distance between fixing points. As long as the size correlates with that of the bed, it is possible to fit onto an existing bed.

For example, a double size for a divan bed requires a fixing point width of 106cm for secure attachment. It is important to consider the look of a new bed, however, when pairing up with a divan bed frame. A tall option is unlikely to work well with a thinner mattress. Our assortment of mattresses comes in a wide range of thicknesses and firmness levels.

How do you put a headboard on a divan bed?

Achieving the perfect fit is just as important as getting the look of your divan bed spot on. A loosely fitting bed backboard sacrifices strength and comfort, potentially hampering the quality of sleep. Fitting any type of headboard to a divan bed is easy to get right, with simple steps to follow.

How to fit a strutted headboard to a divan bed:

  1. Fit the struts to the headboard – Align holes in the struts with those of the headboard before screwing the bolts into position.

  2. Find the bed’s fixing points – These can be located by hand if not easily detectable to the eye.

  3. Attach the strut – Sandwich the strut between the bolt and the divan.

  4. Adjust the headboard – Find your desired height, ensuring it remains level.

  5. Tighten the bolts – Moving one side at a time, start securely tightening the bolts to form a strong bond.

How to fit a floor standing headboard to a divan bed:

  1. Locate the fixing points – If they’re tricky to find on your divan, feel for them in the fabric. Some models may have stickers indicating where the fixing points are.

  2. Screw the bolts – Screwing through the headboard and into the divan bed, attach the bolts firmly, ensuring that the floor-standing divan headboard is in the correct position.

  3. Tighten the bolts – To complete the process, tighten the screws, ensuring that the bolts are completely tightened with no further room for manoeuvre.

How do you stabilise a headboard?

Struggling to maintain the desired fit? You may need to stabilise your divan. A loose headboard is a recipe for damaged walls and broken sleep, no matter how comfortable your divan bed frame and mattress set are.

Banging caused by the loose connection can also create undesirable noise. Stopping your headboard from knocking against the wall is important and, thankfully, easy.

Floating variants will require the addition of a buffer between the walls, which can be done with the help of wall supports. These adjustable tools can create separation and stability, allowing you to wave goodbye to noisy nights and say hello to restful sleep. However, if your old headboard is causing too much of a nuisance and you can't seem to fix it, we'd suggest investing in a new one as it will save you money in the long run.
