Bed buying advice and bed types

What is a Divan Bed?
The structure of a divan base is strong and robust and supports the mattress giving you great support and comfort. Many divan bed bases offer integrated storage drawers making them ultra-functional as well as super comfy. The base is covered in either fabric or faux leather and can have either castors, peg feet or chrome glides.   Divan Beds

Feet on Divans
The feet selection is dependent on the flooring the bed is being placed on. All our Divan Beds come with glides as standard. The recommendations are castors or glides for carpet and peg feet or glides for wooden, laminated or any other hard flooring. If you wish to receive glides you can purchase them as an extra with your bed.  Glides

What is a Bed Frame?
A bed frame or bedstead is the most traditional style of bed with built-in headboard and sometimes a footer incorporated. Choose from metal, wood, fabric, leather or faux leather finishes to achieve different looks in your bedroom. Wooden Bed FramesMetal Bed Frames, Fabric and Leather Frames

What is an Ottoman?

An Ottoman bed has the looks of a Divan but instead of drawers or a slider, it allows the platform top part, where the mattress sits, to be lifted up, which allows for far greater storage space.

They are now enjoying far greater popularity among people who are short on storage and don’t have the room for a full set of 4 drawers in a base.

Ottomans allow for far greater storage than a traditional bed frame, divan or platform top bed base. They are typically used in smaller bedrooms, apartments, flats or areas where bedside tables or closer walls restrict a 4 drawer bed base option. They can be used to store for example spare bedding, particularly if you have both a winter and summer tog duvet that you swap out. They are also useful for storing bedding, towels, clothing such as seasonal items, shoes, books and boxes of keepsakes. Pretty much anything can be stored in them.  Ottoman and Storage Beds
