What Makes Memory Foam Divan Bed So Popular?

What Makes Memory Foam Divan Bed So Popular?

Divan beds are arguably one of the most advantageous beds available on the market and they are a brilliant choice whether you’re looking for a small single or a super king size bed. Nowadays, when ordering divan beds, you can either purchase the bed base and mattress separately or you can order a bed set, but either way, you will be able to decide which type of mattress you purchase.

From open sprung mattresses and natural latex mattresses to pocket sprung mattresses and orthopaedic mattresses, there are so many different options available for a divan bed, yet one of the most popular options remains to be a memory foam mattress. If you’ve never really thought too much about the type of mattress you’d like to have on your bed and you’re intrigued to know why memory foam mattresses are so sought-after, below we have looked into some of the biggest benefits of a divan bed.

Divan Beds Are Suitable For All Sleeping Positions

Unlike other mattress options, memory foam mattresses tend to be ideal for all sleeping positions. Whether you sleep on your back, on your side or on your front, you will be able to have a good night’s sleep when you have a memory foam bed and the mattress will adjust to your sleeping position. This is particularly useful for couples who share a bed but like to sleep in different positions.

Memory Foam Supports Your Body As You Sleep

Memory foam mattresses are designed to contour and mold to the shape of your body and provide targeted support as you sleep. They help to ensure that your spine is aligned no matter what position you’re laying in too, providing ultimate comfort during the night. You will likely find that you sleep better when your body is being supported in a memory foam bed and the mattress will feel like it was made for you.

Memory Foam Mattresses Help To Prevent Aches And Pains

Due to the fact that memory foam mattresses evenly distribute your body weight, they reduce pressure on the heaviest parts of your body too. This mattress will help with blood circulation throughout the night and even relieve common muscle aches and pains along with general body soreness. Many find that divan beds are really useful when they’re recovering from an injury as well. 

Memory Foam Divan Beds Are Really Durable  

Generally speaking, you can expect high-quality divan beds to last for many years to come and this type of mattress paired with this type of bed is a brilliant long-lasting combination. The lifespan of a memory foam mattress tends to be longer than those of other mattresses and when you look after your mattress, you won’t have to invest in a replacement for a very long time.

Memory Foam Mattresses Are Silent During The Night  

Many mattresses disturb users whilst they’re sleeping, not because they’re uncomfortable, but because they can be really noisy. Thankfully, memory foam mattresses are silent and when you move during the night, the mattress won’t make a squeaking noise that wakes you up. Of course, divan base are known for being quiet too, so your bed won’t cause any disturbance when you change position.

Divan Beds Don’t Move When Your Partner Moves 

In addition to being silent, divan beds also have very limited motion transfer, meaning that when your partner moves in the night, you won’t feel a thing. Even if the person next to you is tossing and turning, the motion isolation of a memory foam mattress will help to prevent this from affecting how well you sleep. This is also very useful if you have pets that sleep on your bed too.

Investing In A Memory Foam Divan Bed 

Ultimately, whilst there are lots of different types of mattresses for  divan beds these days, a memory foam mattress is always a brilliant choice. With so many benefits to memory foam, it is no surprise that this type of mattress is the first choice for the majority of homeowners and it is undeniably worthwhile looking into divan beds in more detail if you want to replace your current bed.

Divan or Ottoman - Which Bed Base Should You Choose?

Divan or Ottoman - Which Bed Base Should You Choose?

It is becoming increasingly common for homeowners to purchase beds that come with convenient storage solutions. Instead of opting for standard wooden or metal bed frames, for example, many are investing in divan bed bases or ottoman bed bases instead. Having useful storage solutions under the bed is incredibly beneficial and it is no surprise that these durable bed bases are so popular these days.  

Whilst it isn’t uncommon for people to use divan base and ottoman bed base interchangeably, they are actually two different types of bed bases. Simply put, divan beds have built-in drawers whereas an ottoman bed lifts to reveal storage under the mattress. So, when you’re wanting useful storage beds, you will need to decide which of these two bed bases you’d like to purchase and when doing so, you should take into consideration;

How Much Storage Space You Require  

The amount of storage space you’d like to have under the bed will play a huge role when choosing between these two bed bases. Whilst divan bed bases are available with storage drawers in several different configurations, ottoman bed bases will provide you with much more storage space underneath as the entire base is storage rather than having separate drawers. You may even find that you get more storage with double ottoman beds than a super king divan bed too.

What You’re Planning To Store Under The Bed

What items you’re wanting to store will also influence your decision as even though both storage spaces are convenient, one bed frame makes items much easier to access on a regular basis. Due to the fact that divan bed bases feature drawers that you can use without having to lift your mattress, they are perfect for storing items that you need to have quick access to, whereas an ottoman beds base tend to be better for items that you don’t really need daily.

How Big Your Bedroom Is 

The size and shape of your bedroom, as well as the height and slope of your ceiling, will also impact which type of base is best for you to buy. When you have a divan bed, you will need to have enough space in your bedroom to pull out the drawers, yet if you have ottoman beds then you need to have enough space above the bed to lift the mattress and access the storage area. The layout of your bedroom may also affect your choice as well.

Whether You Have Decorative Bed Cushions 

It can be easy to overlook, but how elaborate your bed styling is will play a role in the decision you make. By lifting the mattress of an ottoman bed to get to any stored items, you will likely mess up your bed styling, whereas this won’t be affected by pulling out the drawers in divan beds. Decorative throws and scatter cushions tend to be more suited to divan bases as they won’t require straightening up every time you access the storage beds space.

Buying An Ottoman Base Or A Divan Base In The UK

All in all, there is no denying that both divan bases and ottoman storage bases are a brilliant choice and they are both incredibly advantageous. Hopefully, by taking the time to think about everything mentioned above, you will find it slightly easier to decide which of these two bed bases is most suitable for your individual needs. Whichever you choose, you can guarantee that you won’t regret upgrading your current bed frame to a new base.  

When searching for somewhere to order an ottoman base or a divan base in the UK, be sure to visit the Divan Bed Warehouse website. We have a brilliant selection of bed bases for sale, all of which are high quality and beautifully crafted. No matter what you have in mind for your new bed, you can trust that we will have the perfect solution for you and we are so confident in our beds that we even offer a 14-night money-back guarantee.

2021 Bed Trends All Homeowners Should Know About

2021 Bed Trends All Homeowners Should Know About

Every year, interior design trends differ and what was considered to be ‘on-trend’ one year can easily get left behind the next. As a homeowner, it can sometimes be difficult to stay up to date with what’s trendy and what’s not, so redecorating your home isn’t necessarily an easy task. Neither is purchasing new furniture and, as you may expect, there are trends surrounding each of the important pieces you invest in for your home too.

Whenever you’re purchasing a new big piece of furniture, like a bed for your master bedroom, it can be really helpful to be aware of the latest trends and often, these trends will make narrowing down the vast furniture market much easier. So, to help anyone who is wanting to replace their bed this year, below we have explored some of the biggest 2021 bed trends that all homeowners should know about.

Handy Additional Storage

One trend for bedroom furniture as a whole is having convenient storage and there has been an increase in demand for furniture that allows homeowners to keep their bedroom clutter-free. Beds like divan beds and ottoman beds are expected to be more popular than ever before this year as homeowners want to create a calm and relaxing environment in their bedroom. Plenty of useful ottoman storage space is something that many are keen to have in their bed frame or divan beds base. 

Statement Headboards

It isn’t uncommon for homeowners to make their divan beds the focal point of their bedroom and big, bold and bright headboards are back on-trend, helping homeowners make an eye-catching statement. Upholstered headboards are expected to be incredibly sought after this year and many will be using them to add texture to their room whilst showing off some of their personality. Headboards that are both decorative yet still comfortable are set to be the most popular.

Matching Footboards

Not only will homeowners be buying divan beds with headboards, but many will be opting for frames or divan bases with matching footboards too. This design feature helps to create the ever-popular boutique feel and it ensures that the double king bed is the first thing that catches the eye as you walk into the bedroom. Both line and button detailing on headboards and footboards will prevent a super king size 
divan beds design from being boring and they will ensure that an interesting statement is being made.

Low Bed Bases

Creating the look and feel of more space is something that homeowners want to do throughout their home and the bedroom is no different. Many will be maximising their floor space by choosing a divan style bed rather than a traditional bed frame and increasing natural light flow by opting for a low bed divan base instead of a standard height base. The modern and effortlessly chic look of a low profile bed will make them a popular choice for all master bedrooms too.

Neutral Colour Upholstery

It is fair to say that muted and neutral tones have been one of the most long-standing trends and whilst homeowners are starting to move away from minimalist interior design, neutrals aren’t going anywhere. Many are still choosing warm neutral and natural shades for the upholstery on their upholstered divan bed frame, creating a sense of calm in the bedroom. Keeping the bed base or frame neutral allows for more daring design choices to be made elsewhere in the room too.

Replacing Your Bed This Year

All in all, if you’re wanting to replace the bed in your master bedroom this year, there is no denying that knowing the latest trends can be really useful and, hopefully, the 2021 bed trends mentioned above will have given you some inspiration.

Choosing The Perfect Divan Headboard For Your Bed

Choosing The Perfect Divan Headboard For Your Bed

The vast majority of the time, when purchasing a new divan bed base, it won’t have a headboard built into the frame or even a floor standing headboard. Whilst this is brilliant for smaller bedrooms with sloped ceilings, for example, some will decide to purchase a separate headboard to use. Being able to add your own headboard to the divan base is incredibly beneficial and it allows homeowners to easily upgrade their divan bed whenever they want to.

Nowadays, there are so many different divan headboards on the market too and you will be spoilt for choice when selecting which you’d like to purchase for your bedroom. As you may expect, the headboard that you choose will completely transform the look and feel of the whole room, so it is important to ensure that you’re opting for the right design. To help anyone trying to decide which headboard is best for their divan bed base, below are some important design features to think about.

 The Height Of The Headboard

You will likely find that whether you have a single or a king size divan base, there will be different headboard heights to choose from. Generally speaking, you will have two standard heights available in most designs; 26” or 36”. You will want to ensure that the headboard is in proportion to the size of your bedroom and the height of your ceiling, so think about what will be best for your bed. Remember, the bigger the headboard, the more of a statement it makes too.

The Colour Of The Headboard 

Almost all divan headboards come in a vast selection of colours too and you will need to decide which colour is right for your bedroom. Not only should you take into consideration the colour scheme of your interior design when choosing a colour for your headboard, but don’t forget to think about the colour of your divan beds base too. Many will choose to match the headboard colour to their bed frame colour, but you can opt for something contrasting if you’d prefer.

The Fabric Of The Headboard

It isn’t uncommon for divan headboards to be available in a range of fabric choices too. From Crushed Velvet and Naples to Wool, Chenille and Plush Velvet, these fabrics will all look and feel quite different. When deciding which fabric to choose, again think about the fabric used for the base of your bed set, but also take into consideration things like, how soft and comfy the fabric is and also how durable it is and how easy it is to keep the fabric clean.

The Pattern And Detail Of The Headboard

The overall appearance of the headboard is always essential to think about and there are lots of different designs to choose from. Consider whether you’d like to have a simplistic headboard or if you’d like to have line detailing or a button pattern instead. How traditional or contemporary you want the headboard to be will impact this decision. Should you opt for a button design, also consider whether you’d like diamante buttons or matching fabric buttons.

The Padding Of The Headboard 

Even though it can be easy to overlook, you should always think about how padded you’d like the headboard to be. If you’re going to lean up against the headboard whilst sitting up and reading in bed, for example, it is essential to ensure that it will be comfortable and opting for a thick high-density reflex foam is a great choice. You should never underestimate the importance of having a comfortable upholstered headboard.

Purchasing A Headboard

When you’re wanting to purchase a headboard to use with your divan bed base, hopefully, the information above will be useful. Thinking about all of the different design elements of the headboard should help you to figure out what exactly you’re looking for and you can then start to narrow down the vast market. With so many brilliant customisable upholstered headboards available nowadays, you shouldn’t struggle to find one that is perfect for your bedroom. 

If you’re searching for somewhere to purchase a headboard from, there is no better website to explore than the Divan Bed Warehouse website.

As a family run business with many years of experience retailing bedroom products, you can rely on us to supply you with the high-quality headboard that you’re looking for at a competitive price and you won’t be disappointed with the product you receive.

Why So Many Homeowners Buy Double Divan Bed Set

Why So Many Homeowners Buy Double Divan Bed Set

It is fair to say that one of the most popular types of beds available these days is a divan bed. Not only are divan beds an aesthetically pleasing space-saving solution, but they feature built-in storage drawers too, providing homeowners with plenty of easy to access storage space. Whether you’re looking for a new single bed for your child’s bedroom or a super king size divan bed for your master bedroom, divan beds really is one of the best solutions on the market.

When it comes to ordering divan beds, you have the option to either buy a bed set or buy the bed frame, the mattress and the headboard individually. More often than not, homeowners will choose to buy a divan bed set and there are so many benefits to simply ordering one bed rather than multiple individual products. Below we have looked into some of the main reasons why bed sets are the first choice for many homeowners.

Divan Beds Are Much Easier To Buy

As you may expect, buying a double divan bed set or a super king bed is much more straightforward than buying everything that you need separately. When ordering a bed set, you simply choose a headboard design that you like and then select the bed size, the fabric, the colour, the storage option and the mattress type that you want, such as memory foam mattress or pocket sprung mattresses. It really couldn’t be easier.  

You won’t have the hassle of matching fabrics and colours or making sure that the mattress is the right size, and you can order in confidence knowing that every part of the divan bed will be perfect. The ordering process will be much quicker from start to finish as well. 

Double Divan Beds Are Often More Affordable  

Whilst it can be easy to assume that ordering everything that you need individually will be cheaper as you’re able to ‘shop around’, this isn’t always the case. Depending on the bed retailer that you turn to, you may find that choosing to buy a divan bed set is actually the most affordable way to order your new bed. 

It isn’t uncommon for there to be flash sales or discounts on divan beds too that you might not get when you’re just ordering a divan bed base or a mattress. You will only have to pay one delivery fee as well and you may even find that delivery is free for bed sets.

Divan Beds Are Versatile In Design  

When opting for a divan bed set, you will have just as many different options to choose from, if not more, and you won’t be limited. With line design headboards, button design headboards and border design headboards, not to mention matching footboards to choose from too, there is the perfect divan bed set for every bedroom.

You may find that some of the bed designs that you like are only available in bed sets too and you might not be able to order everything individually. However, it is very rare that you won’t be able to purchase individual parts you like as a complete set.

Divan Bed Sets Are Easily Customisable  

Just because you’re choosing to order a divan bed set, doesn’t mean that you will have to compromise on the design of the bed either. Generally speaking, you will have different fabric choices, different storage drawer configurations and different types of mattresses to choose from, so you can ensure that every element of the design is perfect for you.

It is extremely uncommon to come across divan bed sets that can’t be customised and when you turn to a reliable bed retailer, you can trust that they will be able to provide you with a bed that meets all of your individual needs, whatever they may be.

Buying A Divan Bed Set In The UK

Ultimately, when you’re wanting to upgrade your current bed frame to divan bases, it goes without saying that it is definitely worthwhile looking at the different divan bed sets available. It is easy to see why so many homeowners choose to buy a divan bed set rather than the divan base, headboards and mattress individually, and you can guarantee that ordering for a bed set is one of the best ways to invest in a new bed.
