Single Divan Bases

A single divan bed base is a wood frame, ideally covered with high-quality material, with castors, glides, or legs, and sits on the floor and holds a divan mattress. A single divan base is 90 cm. (36 inches) wide and 190 cm. (75 inches) long.

Types of single divan bases

The solid or platform top single divan base is a solid hard top and gives a firmer sleeping experience. This base is usually a hardboard wood frame that is upholstered with a layer of padding on top. A platform top single divan base is the most inexpensive type of base and an orthopedic mattress is a popular choice for this base.

The single sprung edge base has a complete open coil or pocket spring unit mounted on a frame that provides support and has no hard edges. A divan sprung edge base has a much softer feel than other types of bases and takes a lot of strain off the mattress, which increases the mattresses’ durability and lifetime.

The firm edge single divan base has fewer springs and a rigid wooden sided frame. They will still soften the feel of the mattress, but the edge is strong in construction and has a hard feel. The firm edge single divan base helps to prevent rolling out of the bed.

Single divan base fabrics

Single divan bases come in a magnificent range of upholstery fabrics to choose from. There is exquisite jacquard woven fabric choices along with luxurious tactile faux suede and faux leather to fit every bedroom decor. There are football prints, heart prints, colored crushed velvet and brightly colored cotton solids available. Drawers are usually covered in the same fabric you choose for your base. There are also headboards and foot boards to coordinate the base.

Single divan storage options

Under-bed storage options are plentiful in the traditional deep single divan bases. You can also oft for non-drawer bases or two drawers. There are two plus two drawers that have two large and two small drawers allowing for nightstands without compromising access to the drawers. You can choose between four drawers or a sliding side door compartment single base. Drawers can also be on the right or left side only of the bed base so the bed can be placed nest to a wall.

The hideaway single divan bases offer a choice of hidden storage which can either be a deep large open cavity hidden by a fabric valance or two drawers hidden by a fabric valance in the base.

Ottoman single divan bases offer the entire base to store items, as they have a hinge, rather like a suitcase. Hydraulic springs make it easy to lift up even when the mattress in place. This is great for small bedrooms since you don’t need additional room to pull out drawers.

If you prefer no storage and a modern look you can choose the shallow base with longer legs and open underneath; there are many different stylish legs to choose from, and they come in diverse metals or woods.

To summarize, a single divan bed is a wise choice for a bed. You can customize colour, fabric, storage, and legs to whatever your heart desires, making this the perfect choice for all the beds in your home.
