Divan Beds

1. What are the main characteristics of a divan bed?

Divans tend to be the most popular choice of bed. They offer good comfort and value for money, with the bonus of additional storage space. Divan beds are available with drawer storage in the base, or a lift up Ottoman storage function.

The base of a divan bed comprises of a timber frame that is covered in fabric. It has castors or solid legs. The divan base is available in platform or sprung edge options. Divan beds with a platform offer a more solid and firm base for the mattress. The timber frame of sprung edge divans feature an additional built-in layer of springs in the base, to provide softer support.

Bases

2. What's the difference between platform top and sprung divan bases?

Also known as a hard top, platform divan bases have a rigid and solid construction that provides sturdy support for the mattress. Divan bases with a solid top feature a non-sprung top panel that offers a firm feel.

3. What are the typical features of a sprung divan base?

5. What are the benefits of an Ottoman bed?

6. What’s the difference between conti drawers and standard drawers?
Conti drawers are half the size of standard divan base drawers. The compact design means that you can place a bedside table next to the bed, and still have easy access to the storage function that is available on either side of the bed.

7. What is memory foam? 
Memory foam is an innovative high-density material that is designed to mould itself to your body’s natural contours. The memory foam softens in reaction to body heat, and reshapes itself when pressure is released. As the flexible body-hugging material spreads to support your weight, it offers optimal comfort and pressure relief for muscle and back pain.

8. What are the benefits of a Memory Foam Mattress?
A memory foam mattress is constructed from a block of foam, with a soft, energy absorbent memory foam outer layer. The density of the foam interior is what makes the mattress soft or firm. Heat and pressure responsive memory foam can also be used as a top layer for other types of mattresses.
