Deciding Which Size Divan Bed Set To Buy
When you’re buying a new divan bed base and mattress for one of the bedrooms in your home, you will have a number of different things to think about. From the upholstery fabric and colour to the .0 configuration, you will have so much control over the bed design and it is easy to ensure that everything about the bed is perfect for your intended use.
Of course, one of the most important decisions to make when buying a new bed is the size you’re going to get. Nowadays, divan sets come in a wide range of sizes, from a small single to a super king, and it isn’t always easy to know which size you should opt for. So, to help anyone who is trying to decide which size divan set to buy, below is a list of important things to take into consideration to ensure that you’re opting for the most suitable size for your needs.
The size of the bedroom
One of the first things to think about when you’re choosing a bed size is how spacious the bedroom is. It goes without saying that the bed needs to physically fit into the intended space and the size of the room will dictate whether some of the bigger bed sizes are suitable. Be sure to take a look at the measurements of each of the bed sizes and double-check whether they will fit in the bedroom.
The person sleeping in the bed
Depending on who is going to be sleeping in the divan bed, some of the smaller bed sizes might not be suitable and some of the bigger bed sizes might not be necessary. Always think about the height and build of the person who is going to be sleeping in the bed, as you want to ensure that they’re able to get a great night’s sleep. Some bed sizes are wider and longer than others, so consider which will be most comfortable for the user.
The number of people sleeping in the bed
As you may expect, the number of people sleeping in the bed is always essential to take into consideration. When a couple is going to be sharing the bed, for example, you need to make sure that there is adequate space for both people and that they won’t disturb each other during the night due to the lack of space. Often, anything smaller than a double bed isn’t suitable for two people.
The sleeping habits of the user/s
Many will think about sleeping habits when choosing the mattress for the divan set, but these habits are also important to think about when deciding on a bed size too. Should the person who's going to be sleeping in the bed move around a lot whilst they sleep, for example, a bigger bed will be required to accommodate this and to prevent them from falling out of bed. So, always consider how the user usually sleeps.
The amount of storage space
The fact that divan bed bases have convenient storage drawers makes them a popular choice and your storage needs will also influence which size divan set you buy. Of course, the bigger the bed, the more storage space you will have, so when you require plenty of additional storage, a king size will be much better than a single bed. Always look at the storage options too as some bed sizes only have two drawers rather than four.
Any future requirements
Whenever you’re buying a bed, be sure to think about the future requirements of the user as well. For example, if you’re buying a divan set for an older child, it might be best to opt for a double bed that will continue to be suitable for them in their teenage years. This will help to prevent you from needing to buy a replacement bed any time soon.
Buying a divan set for your bedroom
Hopefully, when you’re trying to decide which size divan set to buy, the information above will be useful. Taking the time to consider all of these different points will give you a better idea of what your requirements and preferences are for this new bed, and you can then ensure that the size you opt for is able to meet all of these, whatever they may be.
