The Ever-Practical Divan Bed

Practical, stylish and often luxurious-these words are not always associated with divans. More recently though they are now seen as an extremely practical and chic addition to any home, not only due to the built-in storage but also the variety of styles that are available. Single divans for kids or a double divan bed base for couples is a must have for most homes today.

Choices abound when choosing a double divan bed base. Different fabrics, colours and headboards are available. More often than not they are constructed of wood and the upholstery can range from any time of fabrics-quite often suede, luxurious leather or faux leather. Choose from one of the huge range of colours that match your décor perfectly.

If you are looking for a solid, sturdy frame which supports any type of mattress, a double divan bed frame is what you should be looking for.

Choosing a mattress can be fraught with all sorts of issues. Do you want soft, medium or firm? Memory foam or inner spring? These questions alone make you want to have a nap! The best thing to do is to take the time to do your research and figure out what mattress will give you the best support for a blissful night’s sleep. We all know that a great night’s sleep makes a world of difference to everyone.

Divan beds are also an amazing addition to any room. A sitting area looks great with a divan made up with a fantastic set of linen. Putting one in your guest room will be sure to be a hit with guests due to the comfort and versatility that they offer.

Another reason why a divan bed is such a popular choice is because they provide a lot of storage space. You’ll find many on sale with drawers in the base of the bed where you can store unused items away, and some have a base that will lift up entirely so that you can use all the space underneath of the mattress, which is considerable. These types of bases usually have hydraulic springs to maintain the opening and closing of the bed under control. If you are short on space at the sides of the bed this is a good choice as you don’t have pull drawers out.

Divan beds are also very handy when it comes to matching a new bed with existing bedroom decor. A base in a neutral tone will fit in with just about any colour scheme without the need for major changes. If you want to make the bed the focal point of the room, select a colour base that will stand out. Using cushions on top of the bed is another way to get a pop of colour.

If your living space is limited, then a divan is the perfect solution for you. You would be surprised how many of your belongings those drawers can hold, making sure that your living area is always neat and tidy.
